This marks the 307th mass shootings in 2018. Here is a link of all the murders this year when, where and how many people died.
We can't keep making excuses for this type of behavior. non of these mass murders were committed by a poc.
do you remember when that doctor was arrested in the airport in orlando? if not i have the video below. It clearly shows people are well aware of how we are treated they just decide to act like the man in the background of the video. its not happening to them so they just watch. Meanwhile the doctor says " you are treating me like black people" while he is apparently resisting arrest. poc are shot over this privilege every week. we have to come to the conclusion that people are aware how poc are treated here, they just don't care. Its our job to make them care or find other ways to help resolve our many issues.
if special treatment isn't enough we have to deal with the media and its portrayal of us vs. them. In america's latest mass murder committed by an Anglo Male he was first portrayed as a troubled vet with post traumatic stress disorder as on schedule.
if that doesn't work then they post a picture of him as the guy next door.
harmless right? this is to get some sympathy for some reason. Like he was troubled bullshit. we failed him bullshit. Anything to protect their image. Then if for some reason that doesn't work then they might but not usually post some truth about the past.
dude has been a criminal before. This is the type of picture they usually lead with for a person of color, whether they are the criminal or the victim. So i have to ask why is it that all poc are vilified over one act from one individual but Anglo men can mass murder weekly and the rest of Anglo America is not vilified. If these mass muderers where any other race we would have all types of bans in place already. its obvious that this can be a grossly racist place, but i could have never imaged how bad it actually is until this administration empower hate as its base. if you are an Anglo American and you accept these actions without resistance of any kind this ripple effect will eventually cross your path. fuck taking a knee we should just boycott people until we get the respect we have earned. i am not saying be rude or nasty or confrontational. i am suggesting maybe we just speak at work and at school. only when its required nothing personal. I would stay cool with ally's but if your not an ally at this point in 2018 you are an enemy. have any of you watched the episode of black mirror called white christmas with jon hamm? he commits a crime and basically gets blocked from society. there were these special contacts in the future that have the ability to block out a person if you don't want to talk to them anymore. they appear as a red imagine and you can't hear what they say.
we have peacefully tried to take a knee to bring awareness to just some of the injustices we face. the response we have been given is stand up and shut up. so maybe just maybe we should take their advise. just ignore them. build ourselves up. would they make not speaking to them illegal? of course they would try, but i really would like to hear that argument. #boycottracistpeople.
