You Bad, Bad Black People
Nothing burns me up more than stereotypes. Why? Because I recognize the danger in them. You would think that an educated Fire Captain would recognized that too and not buy into them, but apparently Captain Brian Beckmann of Miami Dade Firefighters believes in them enough to make this statement regarding Trayvon's parents:
"Failed, shitbag, ignorant parents" are to blame in cases like the shooting death of unarmed Miami teen Trayvon Martin"~~Captain Brian Beckman~~
Some people lack compassion for others in their hour of grief. These people are still grieving over the loss of their child. I've lived a long time, but I never thought the day would come when people would say some of the cruelest things in situations where families are grieving over their loved ones. Some folks don't even allow families to grieve in peace anymore. They'd rather pile on more hurt and pain.
Okie dokie! So, I wonder if the good Captain can tell us what type of parents George Zimmerman has?
While he is at it, I wonder if he could tell us what type of parents Representative Allen West has? Because West is crazier than a road lizard. It's obvious every time he opens his mouth. I'm waiting on his scandal to come out.
Well, for the umpteenth time, the Senate plans to bring a bill to the Senate and discuss racial profiling. Good luck with that considering the makeup of the House of Representatives.
