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.
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?
