With all of the supporting evidence along with accompanying smart phone videos, there is no question that there are reasonable grounds to acknowledge a problem between some of our law enforcement and our black American community.
I don’t use the term “African American” as I don’t feel it applies, most black American’s have never set foot in Africa so it’s not a correct term in my opinion and it mostly just adds to the ways that segregation is imposed on the people of our nation.
Too many of these stories are becoming more and more public today, but what is more disturbing is the fact that they even take place.
However, we cannot always take these stories as factual truths because we don’t always get to see the entire video footage, beginning at the very moment these altercations take place.
Most of these as seen on many social media outlets will depict a “helpless black male” perpetrator being shot by a police officer and is usually presented in such a way to make it appear the officer shot the person simply because he is black.
I think in all of these situations, there is a lot more going on within the altercations than meets the eye. Many would have us believe otherwise, however I feel that law enforcement officers in most cases do not want to be involved in a life or death altercation with anyone.
Take this photo for example, the activist is most definitely trying to intimidate this officer by getting “inside his personal space” if he hadn’t been a police officer, and trained to do his best to implement self control in a situation like this, this guy would probably have a black eye.
A distance of at least three feet should be kept at all times between yourself and another person in order to keep that person from feeling threatened. Go inside that barrier and the person is already in defense mode, no matter what you have to say or even if you say nothing at all, he or she is more interested in your movements that what you have to say.
These people have no respect for themselves, much less the rest of us and they couldn’t care less if they are impeding your personal space or not, it’s just not within them to understand because of the way they have been “programmed” since birth.
It’s also alarming that these individuals are more and more showing a gross lack of respect for law enforcement but more importantly, a lack of fear when in the presence of a police officer.
When this happens, it is highly likely any altercation that evolves will not turn out well, for one if not both involved. Such as a scuffle with an officer, if he or she can, you can bet they will get you off of them, no matter what it takes, and rightly so, you shouldn’t have been there in the first place.
If the people of the movement (BLM) want to bring on any kind of positive change with these demonstrations, they are going to have to look inside themselves and find a way to do it peacefully and through the right processes instead of hiding behind the movement as a way “To Express Their Anger” as one individual from Ferguson had stated a year ago.
America doesn’t want, need or except the BLM as a vessel for the black youth of America to reak havoc on it’s citizen’s and law enforcement and as it grows in that direction, so does our intolerance for it.
I and many like myself cannot and will not support a group of people with the sole purpose of assaulting police officers or attacking white Americans for the long outdated reasoning of the “White Man Owned Slaves” mentality.
That is simply an excuse for many in the black community to continue fueling racial divide, and implying that there should be some sort of self guilt within the white communities of this country.
All of our nation’s people most likely have ancestors that suffered atrocities just as the black slaves did but we don’t see them hundreds of years later using it as a cultural mapping tool like black people do even today.
It’s time for that one to just simply go away and for the people of the black community to stop looking for excuses to not be a productive part of society and for Pete’s sake, stop teaching your kids “whitey owes the black man mentalities“. You are doing them harm by telling them this garbage.
Instead, why not teach them about the many wonderful things that have been accomplished by our fellow black Americans and how they have contributed to our society? Teach them to make peace, not war against others and to not listen to those whom feed them poison about their fellow man. I wish this for all mankind, not just the black race because we all have those few that wish to keep the divide in place.
I think the BLM at it’s origin was a Ideal that had some merit as far as bringing to light a concern that something just seems too frequent when it comes to altercations between young black males and law enforcement. If nothing else, it brings to light the behavioral issues some people have when they are involved with law enforcement and how their very own actions may bring about negative outcomes.
Unfortunately I think the movement has changed, grown into something for those who want to do more poisoning of the minds of our black and white youth of today, and offers a avenue for delinquents to abuse the movement to reek havoc on society and unleash a lifetime of hate spawned by those who raised them and taught them to hate. But don’t take my word for it, do your own research so you too can see and know this to be true, just start watching the coverage of these events and you’ll get all the proof you need that “The BLM Isn’t What They Want Us to Believe”
