I know that whatever I say, someone will be critical of it or just not like it, so here it goes.
If I was to write anything a post about what’s right with this world right now, it would nearly be a blank page. That being said I don’t want to make this too long of a post. Honestly I don’t know what to write. After the protests, riots, lootings, etc. over the weekend I’m speechless, especially now after so many people have said a lot of things MUCH better than what I’d ever come up with.
It’s 2020 & look at where we are? If this is what evolution is, WE failed at it as a GLOBAL community. Evolution didn’t fail us.
2020 and yet we’re dealing with RACISM, how advanced are we? How does anyone take another person’s life? Because of the colour of a person’s skin? That doesn’t make any sense? How do bystanders, Caucasian figures of authority, allow this to happen? Now it’s expected that those of any colour are supposed to trust figures of authority that are Caucasian? Good luck with that.
A person had to die, millions of people around the world went out to protest peacefully. Some turned into riots. The people that began the riots, I ask how does burning a building, looting, or harming another person make you any better than a murderer? Does anyone think that’s what George Floyd would want to come from any death like his?
We all saw or heard the same thing, but not all of us chose to protest in violence. You’re undoubtedly supposed to feel some emotion. Don’t focus that anger on a random fellow protestor or police officer.
For those of you in the USA & are able to vote, take your anger to the voting booth & change things from the top. “The pen is mightier than the sword”. For anyone in any country dealing with this & you’re able to vote. Do so if there needs to be a change! To those in the USA, this is an election year for you, don’t forget any of this when casting your vote.
After watching the news on Monday & watching the president, I had to just shake my head in not only disapproval but complete disappointment.
