That’s right dear reader(s), you get not one, but 2 different posts in this blog-type-thing today! Why? Because I was going to post a poem, and then another post on my thoughts about a current, awful situation here in these far-from-United States; but then I’d have two posts very close together in your news feed, and since I just blasted Thought Catalog for their blog-spam yesterday; I don’t want to be a hypocrite. Being a hypocrite can wait for another day.
So first, let me share a story, in case you haven’t heard.
If you don’t want to follow the link, I’ll sum up. Though the officer who shot Michael Brown was not charged with any crime, at any level, the investigation into the shooting did reveal wide-spread racial bias within the Police Department, according to the Department of Justice. Last night, 2 officers were shot (though thankfully not killed) when all of this fucking violence restarted.
Now for my opinion. It isn’t controversial at all, so don’t worry. I just think it isn’t being voiced enough.
Stop generalizing and categorizing people!!!!!
Even if this particular department has a lot of racist fucking pieces of shit, you don’t know if most of the cops in it are. I honestly believe that some cops are fucking pricks, but most really do just want to help. Conversely, just because someone has a different skin color, features, hair, background, economic situation, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, level of ability, nationality, religion, etc, etc…DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE BAD!!!
Quit with the hate! You will not gain anything by fighting this war. No freedom to be won, no victor to be crowned. This, is just a downward spiral that only advances the cause of death.
And now for something completely different…
This is a poem about the risk of trust.
