A Felony Will Get You Probation If Your White In America
Today, I read the article regarding the "Fake Acorn Pimp's" sentencing. Yeah, he got a slap on the wrist and a chump change fine that more than likely is lunch money to him. I'm sure the $1,500 fine he's been ordered to pay won't make a dent in his wallet. It probably won't even make a slight crease. He'll probably do his community work at some pristy church in some upscale neighborhood, and probation in his case does not mean a thing. Only in America are white kids allowed to commit a felony and get sentence diverges compared to those bestowed upon brown and black skin kids.
The "Fake Acorn Pimp" was instrumental in the Senate cutting off funds for an organization that helped poor people, smear and slander job that caused ACORN employees to be added to the unemployment list, a help resource for poor people to be eliminated, and attempted to wire tap a United States Senator's government office telephones. In addition, he edited a tape and presented a phony one of ACORN that caused the big mess in the first place.
Yet and still, the sentence he was given is an injustice to ACORN whose organization doors were closed. Because of his fake tape, fake hoe and pimp outfit, and a conversation that never took place, ACORN's federal funds were cut off behind lies and deception that James O'Keefe and fake hoe created. Nevertheless, he gets what is known as the traditional slap on the wrist and a chump change fine. However, us brown and black folks already knew what the verdict would be in the case of O'Keefe.
Although, this is nothing new in America if your not brown or black skinned people. O'Keefe won't get the felony label that is issued out like free tickets to the circus. We all know that had he been black or brown he would have been singing that tune they sing when baseball player hits a baseball out of the park-bye,bye baby! And some white folks wonder why black and brown people get all puff out of shape and complain about the sentencing system in the courts of America. Puleeeeeze!
All of my life I observed people and often wondered why hatred between the human beings exists. As a black woman I have experienced it proliferated towards my people and me in myriad extreme and often subtle forms in which one could ever imagine toward a group of people.
One day, while meditating I asked the question why do people hate so much not knowing that this question would take me on a journey that would lead to an answer which has been one of the greatest deceptions in the history of mankind.
My journey has led me to the place that I am now, which is fighting against injustice, inequality, and enslavement of the minds of my people by the pharaohs of today.
Lord knows I am not perfect, nor do I profess to be. Neither are my people and no human being on earth is as a matter-of-fact. There are human flaws in every single race.
So, then my question is what gives one race the idea that they should have control over all others?
