Humankind has to evolve beyond artificial boundaries to create a better, more equitable, and humane world when everything is based upon a person's merits and what he/she has earned.
We agree on that , especially the artificial boundaries created of our media as they fester and energize most all cultural division , . most issues of racism being among them . I posted this photo while at the same time thinking ; its still quite a jump from the actual incident in Ferguson Mo., even to this photo ! In that , the actual creation of a racial incident is being pretty well groomed by the media , when in all actuality it had little to do with race relations , and far, far more to do with "selling newspapers ". Racism in itself seems to be by media , pretty well fed , mostly the need to keep alive truly philosophical differences , as if divisive hatred , rather than healing , somehow is more important - to be kept alive ?
...and owed: (edit: but, NOT owed by the govt.) kindness, compassion, empathy, appreciation, sympathy, help, respect as a child of God…( No fair delegating these considerations to the govt.)
Love the photo!!! It is very heart warming. So many people make race a huge issue and desire separation. It is good to again confirm that not all blacks hate whites. Thank you for the visual.
Sometimes I really believe that 99.99999 % of us don't hate anyone at all . Does the media simply want a divided people? I think so !
I think you should cut your percentage by three quarters. Most of the world really hates. Its the way of the world. The media can only do so much.
The "real" government wants a divided people... good crowd control.
In such way , you are right , cuz each person has a little of goodness in his heart , I respect your opinion anyway ,but let's be a little realistic , this percentage can't exist except in heaven maybe 65% good people and the rest for bad ones ( this percentage can change depending on which kind of people you attract more , or how you feel and think about people ....if you didn't get it , you can google for "law of attraction" it explains it all ).
I respect also Miss Cgenaea for her reply , that point of view can be due to bad experiences that she had with people in the past , but I think she was too pessimistic when she said to cut this percentage by three quarters , good people are still exist in this world , all what she need is to change her way of thinking about people , and she'll notice a big change in her life ...
Hello my dear , No I don't believe in the boogeyman that many portray of OUR government ,---twisted and incompetent as they may be - ,......the media though -Yes , the hysteria that our media constantly t promotes and fine tunes to the tenth degree is the real culprit in most all of the cultural divide in America . Its all about how many "hits " can they get . To hell with the truth or balance or peace, love and tolerance. .
Do you lock your doors at night??? If so, why?
Do you lock your car door at the mall? If so, why??? Do you walk down dark alleys in the city? Do you pin your dollars to your lapel? Or wear your credit cards in the band around your hat? Are the passwords to your accounts posted on the bathroom mirror at work?
Have you gotten my drift???
Need I ask any more questions???
Just a second ago, your pic was featured on Chicago's own WGN news... so much for the media's neglect to report anything good. They said he was crying because of police brutality, the officer asked why, then asked for the free hug.
Whatcha think of my boogey man now? lol.
(Just a joke please don't talk about the boogey man)
No , there is no government conspiracy to keep us on a path to hatred , That happens in human nature all by itself ! Hatred in the streets , the press , the schools , even in the churches . Al Sharpton hates , Jesse Jackson hates , the media just pumps the blood along in the veins that already exist in humanity ! You cannot blame Uncle Sam for what happens in the ghetto !
It seems that violence and hatred is by far . to complicated an issue , we want to blame the easy target and blame the government for not "fixing" it ,....... the condition , element is the hardest to comprehend or even to discuss ? Now for instance I have chosen to love you even though we disagree sometimes LOL.
I choose to love you agree or no. As a matter of fact. I didn't have to choose. Never had other options presented. Im just a loving kinda gal. but I do i now violence and hatred when I see/hear them.
Are you referring to the shooter as easy target? I think the black (I mean raceless) boy was the "easy target" and came (I mean went) with no consequence.
I think it's sad that if the cop died because of bullet ricochet, we would have buried the boy in procedings and locked him up on many charges. Not a secret jury to think about. Public barbecue...
But you see that's what can NEVER happen , that is why the American justice system is probably the best in the world ., Because we have evolved far and away from a "public barbecue", the days of public lynching's ,of everyone wearing six guns to insure" justice " are behind us !?
And that is why we don't try people in the media , we don't have a cyber public lynching , an E- lynching if you will , thinking all the while that we know better than the system itself who walks free and who hangs on a pole .!
Having served on a jury a couple of different times , I have walked away rather frustrated that emotionalism and personal supposition is as important a part of the process as law itself . In fact , I believe that more people who are guilty walk away from the process of trail unscathed than those who are processed into it ! , and I do tend to be a conservative in my beliefs of law and order .
In the Ferguson case , the cop IS being tried in a vastly uninformed public forum in spite of the facts themselves , Yet that IS the way of public forums isn't it ! " Hang him high " , Why ? Because he seems guilty ! No , that's never going to be the way of justice in America -- Again !
The human element in almost all controversy demands answers to our emotional fears , our angers and our confusions , Yet once you walk into a jury room we must leave all those human frailties behind and I'm more than sure that grand juries do just that , for the most part .
I sure am glad you're a "loving kinda gal " , That in itself makes you awesome ! And a great part of the necessity of public debate ., Here's a human element for you , In spite of all the emotion and political debate in this issue , of the fact that I believe the shooting was more than likely justified , I still see the eye's of a young boy in the photo's of Michael Brown . There is the real tragedy - That such a beautiful young man has to die because of his questionable upbringing .and because of the grey area's in right and wrong of inner city, anti-social sub-cultural lifestyles .!
Surely you mean, no public e-lynching for anyone we deem worthy enough. Because Michael Brown, and "his upbringing" have been raked over imaginary e-coals, continually, so that we may justify his death. And exonerate his killer of any responsibility for that.
Are grand juries inhuman? Do they make mistakes? Do they ever get their decisions overturned? Sorry for bringing old wineskins to your new wine. We may discuss it over at peoplepower's "...racial creep?"
There is hope. But it lies within the fluidity of "liberty and justice for ALL." The systems still seem slanted. And we MAY all just get along. But a few of us feel a bit too lofty for mingling. I mean, those of you/us who were "raised right" like to feel a bit too good for the rest of us... we make decisions based on that.
I wonder how "good" Darren Wilson was raised...I have a clue, but...
I believe what we all must do is to look at real statistics ! And then ! In the end , decide if One , African Americans are only eleven percent of our population , are they only then responsible for eleven percent of all crime , of all drug abuse problems , of all domestic violence , of all people on the social welfare system ? Of the populations of the inner cities ? Lets be fair , All fairness in race relations has to be supported by statistical equations ! Not just that which media choses to imbellish by hyper- hysteria !
While I agree we have to change it ourselves , I still believe there is far greater good than evil in us all ! okay..... okay ! 89% give or take a couple !
The laws of attraction are valid points. Black people attract police like... well we know.
Pessimism can be the result of having been dogged out by a system supposedly set up to help.
A change in the way I think about people will never depend upon numbers, but my interactions with them.
To my relief, I have no pessimistic views about any group of people, ESPECIALLY blacks. I know them.
I even have a certain amount of hope for white police officers sent to serve and protect my kind, without micro/mismanagement and disrespect.
A big change in my life???...
Thank you, no... My life's ok, but I pray that you see at least one big change in yours.
