We heard lots of stories from others regarding race this, and race that. We heard lots of people saying that darker skinned people are using the “race” card when things happen. We heard how others rally behind police officers when they are shot or killed, yet nothing is mentioned about the lives lost by police. I am not against the police that honestly serve the communities and connect with people in communities. I am not against the police that have to honestly defend their life in a situation that is life and death. What I am against are the innocent killings and the lies other people give to make the police believe they have to destroy a family’s life.
I saw a YouTube video of a SWAT officer that shot and killed a seven year old girl with a bullet directly into and through her head. On this YouTube video, the SWAT officer did not answer why he did it or what was his intentions as he broke down the door in this home… a home raided to where only a grandmother and her seven year old granddaughter was occupying. The gentleman that was doing this video provided information that was released by the American Psychological Association in regards to how police see dark skinned people. After some research, I had found an article that tells how police view dark skinned people and how lighter skinned women view dark skinned people. This came out in March of 2014 and here we sit in 2016 with the same issues going on. I believe you should read the article for yourselves. It is a good source of information. Please share.

There are a lot of people always say America is the best country ever. People say there’s no racism. People say America is just for everyone. No one wants to talk about racism or how it affects us as “Americans.” No one understands what it is like to be of a darker pigmentation in America. The constitution states ALL men, not some men, but ALL men are created “equal.” Is that true in the eyes of the law? Even the Governor of Minnesota said this was race motivated. My take… this police officer is not going to do any time for this act.
I read were a police officer in New York was convicted by his peers (the jury), but the judge made the sentence where the police officer did not serve any jail time. He only receive house arrest and probation. The person that officer had killed cannot tell his side of the story. That person cannot defend himself in a court of law. Police officers have bullet-proof vests and yet they are afraid of their life of someone who does not have a weapon. Even so, the military don’t wear bullet-proof vest and we are deployed in some of the most dangerous areas known to man. I would love to see a police officer deployed in a “hot zone” where he or she cannot wear a bullet-proof vest. I bet they will shot everyone in sight.
Incidents like this were known in the southern states, and now they are being done by police officers in the northern states. Videos that show the truth, yet not admissible in court, or the police get the videos first before it can be released. If the police officer did nothing wrong, then why are they so much in a rush to obtain the video before it stream live?
Sooner or later, America will pay for their sins and those that had gotten away with so much will have to be judged by God Himself, one day. I would love to be a fly on the wall because no matter what excuse a person gives of taking a life that is not just, would it be the correct answer?
Wherever this life puts you through,
I am there with you.
Whenever you feel like all hope is gone,
I will be your strength to encourage you to fight on.
When life leaves its battle scars,
I am in the midst so don’t look far.
Look upon the Horizon and you will see me,
I will forever be,
So, put on that lovely smile,
for sorrow will only last for a while.
No matter where you go, I am by your side.
So, when you cry,
When you fight,
Do you want to know what is really fucked up (and excuse my language)? Man. When I say man, it includes women as well. God put us on this earth to have dominion and to worship Him, not to kill off creation for OUR own glory. I know I may offend some people, but this is coming from my heart!
Too many times, people hunt for the purpose of a trophy. To many times, people hunt just to give them a reason to kill an animal. Countless of wolves, dogs, cats, elephants, lions, and many others are killed for the purpose of just because. Man is so vicious and mean. Man is so corrupt and selfish. No wonder why this place called earth is in shambles.
My mother made a point to me earlier today. She said God did not intend on animals to be caged and put on exhibits. There is a difference in showing compassion and raising that animal the correct way compared to abusing it because man say it is an animal. Animals are smarter than some humans. I told my mother that is what slavery is about… taking someone or an animal from their native land and putting them in cages. Don’t get me wrong, I love the zoo. I enjoy animals and my heart cries out to them because they are innocent and only do what they do instinctively.
At times, I get pissed at kids or humans throwing popcorn to animals when they are not suppose to feed the animals. They give the animals things they may not suppose to have just to get the animal closer to them to watch. Then I see mothers put their children on top of rocks to watch the animals closer when they are not suppose to have children on the rocks. People breaking the rules that is for THEIR protection in order to selfishly see captive animals and then want to cry and scream when their child falls into a pit or get into an exhibit due to their negligence. Keepers would rather kill an animal than to tranquilize the animal due to the negligence of a human doing something they were instructed NOT to do. Is that fair for the animal? Is that fair that other people that obey the rules get to see an animal get slaughtered due to someone else’s negligence? Is it fair for that animal to suffer and have pain from hot lead piercing their bodies because man wants to do what they want to do instead of obeying the rules?
The joy of raising a dog or a cat correctly have many benefits, yet some people leave their dogs or cats outside. What is the use of having a pet? Why have a pet if you will treat is like it is nothing? My dog has free reign in the house. My dog sleeps in the bed with me, sleeps on the couch, walk anywhere she wants, plays in any room she pleases. She does her business outside and outside only. She has free reign of the fenced-in yard as well. I enjoy her and she enjoys me. It gives me great pleasure to see her wag her tail, instead of wondering when her next meal is, or wondering why is she subjected to extreme conditions because man refuses to house break a dog or cat.
It’s funny how man can say they love animals and respect animals, yet their actions does not coincide with their words. Some people treat their kids like animals as well. So when man say they love animals… do they really?
One thing I had noticed in this video? The ones that looked upon those that did things to help out, are the same ones that helped others and so on.
I had a thought that entered my mind as I was reading a yahoo news post just a few minutes ago about Delta Airlines. Delta Airlines states they will not allow hunting trophies (animals that are killed in other countries by humans) on their aircrafts. I think this is almost the best thing since sliced bread. Why?
Think of the mind of a murderer. Someone in the state that has the death penalty commits murder and is arrested for that murder. That person would likely give up certain information because he/she would not want to receive the death penalty. But why not? They had killed someone, thus according to that specific state they should die as well. Most of the deaths by jury are done by the electrical chair or by lethal injection. These two forms of the death penalty are supposed to be approved and more “humane.” However, the murderer’s victim(s) could had suffered a wound in the lung, a busted heart, shattering of the spinal cord, or other things that may cause extreme pain. Yet, the murderer will try to negotiate life in prison instead of the death penalty.
An animal who is hunted for their tusks and fur does not deserve to die either. They live on instinct where as we know the difference between right and wrong, yet us humans hurt down and destroy the life of an animal. Most animals don’t even have a chance, such as a deer, moose, and other defenseless animals for the purpose of having their heads on the walls of those that murdered them. I would be willing to bet that if such murderers would be caught and tried for these crimes, they would negotiate not to be put to death, which is a more humane way to die than to feel hot lead piercing through your organs as you struggle to breath or become scared of what may happen next.
Let me go on record to say I am not a believer of the death penalty. One of the ten commandments are “Thous shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13). I know some may say that we kill cows and some other animals for food. Technically, all animals were forbidden to be eaten until after the flood. After the flood, the animals are revealed in Leviticus 11 what are considered clean and unclean. Again, this is considered as food, not as trophies.

Watching Inside edition this evening after the Chicago Bears game, I was deeply moved about two things.
1. Napa Valley Wine Train Tours kicked off 11 women of African descent due to, what they call, laughing too much. According to information provided, the person who worked on the train escorted 11 women of African descent off the train at a stop where police were called and waiting for them. Other non African descent customers said it was not fair because there were others that laughed and acted the same way, if not worse, yet were not approached. Why does this bothers me? Because the company issued an apology and will make their employees go through diversity training. Can we conclude if this was done by a man or woman of African descent against European women, this person would be fired and not recommended for diversity training. People say we are created equal, but we are not treated equally. Nothing conflicts me more than those who say they are Christians who continuously judge others when the chosen people were not Europeans, but Israelis. No wonder why I stopped going to church.
2. Police officers caught on camera trying to make drivers buy tickets to a police function or he will take their vehicle for not being registered. Again, this is evident on a cell phone video, yet they only get desk duty or some other duty while the incidents are investigated through Internal Affairs. Really? What is there to investigate when the proof it right on camera or video?
We live in a world where we call bad good and good bad. We life in a world where people judge those of African descent, or even judging those that are of mixed race and receive b.s. apologies because they got busted or found out during such things. It is a shame where people of African descent has to prove themselves a worthy employee or a worthy friend almost five times more than those of European descent.
I believe not all police officers are bad or do negative things. Just like people, a few officers give the good officers a bad name, just like a few people of African descent give us good ones a bad name; and just like a few European descent people would give the good ones a bad name.

Another prime example of how destructive man is. When I say man, I am speaking of all mankind which does include women.
A Minnesota dentist (Palmer) traveled all the way to Africa to kill a lion (Cecil). Little did he know, this 13 year old lion is special to the region and has a GPS on him. This is his excuse…
Palmer issued a statement that reads: “I hired several professional guides, and they secured all proper permits. To my knowledge, everything about this trip was legal and properly handled and conducted. I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt. I relied on the expertise of my local professional guides to ensure a legal hunt.”
So, if someone was to go to his neighborhood and shoot a person because they heard that person was bad and they have sources that would confirm that, would that be justifiable to take a life and have a trophy of the deceased?
Sure, you can say there is a difference between an animal and humans, but I don’t think so. An animal protect its family just like a human would. An animal can learn words just like a human can learn words. An animal bleed just like a human. An animal has feelings of sorrow, hurt, and fear just like a human. An animal desires to be in good hands and needs love just like a human. Funny! Animals and humans are the same in many aspects. Even today, people are being hunted like animals. So you tell me?
Man has messed up this earth in so many ways. Man believes their every excuse is valid for their actions against another or against an animal. Man has marked human beings and animals for death. Man is his/her own worse enemy and yet when we kill, we want to avoid the death penalty ourselves. Isn’t that just like human nature. We don’t want to die, yet we can kill animals and each other without a care in the world…until we are caught.
It appears police officers get a medal (get set free) for killing unarmed men and woman in America. Police officers are granted a bullet-proof vest, something used to protect them, yet they are fast to shot unarmed people, in their chest or back; places where the police officers themselves has protection.
Lives are forever changed because of a police officer’s decision to use a weapon of “mass destruction!” Explain how can a police officer be afraid of their life when the person is either running away from them, or unarmed and instead of grabbing their taser, they see fit to grab their weapon. Their weapon that is used to pierce through flesh. Their weapon that is used to tear up nerve endings and send messages of pain to the brain constantly until that pain has subsided in some way and in these cases… death. Their weapon that is used to tear apart organs such as kidneys, lungs, and much more. Their weapons that is used to pierce and tear through bone(s). Their weapons that is used to burst a person’s heart.
It is very troublesome to hear a judge set a person free that kills another. It is very troublesome to hear a jury refuse to indict a police officer that literally kills another by bursting their heart in little pieces due to a bullet from their police issued weapon. I would love to see what would happen if a judge’s unarmed child was killed by a police officer. Would that officer be set free? I would love to see what would happen if a jury member who is serving on a jury trial just received word their child, who is unarmed, was killed by a police officer. Would that police officer be set free?
Everyone is so quick to pull up a person’s criminal record, or say they are a bad person and their past caught up to them. It is troublesome to hear what others think what a black person’s life is worth. There are many whites that had served jail time for a variety of different crimes and there are white people that are on the sexual offender’s list. I am not trying to make this out to be a black and white thing, but take a moment to look back at your own life for a second. You see a black guy and a white guy, who will you judge first? When we were kids, we did not know about black and white. Movies, peers, and family mold us to believe how we believe today about race.
America does not want to talk about race and for this, we will never grow as a people. I am not just black. I am not just white. I am of mixed race (black and white). So when America see me as a black man, and police officers see me as a black man, we will never move forward. I am of mixed race and both races makes up Boston Brian, not just the black and not just the white. I used to have a lot of respect for police officers. Just as society say… “One bad apple can spoil the bunch.” How are we to view police officers then? Are we to view them as one bad police officer means all officers are bad? After all, this is what society say about people right?
People jump’s on society’s band wagon when it is convenient for them. People say society is right for judging a person by race. People say society is right for saying police officers cannot do any wrong. People say society is right for saying one bad apple spoils the bunch, unless it is their family member that society may be talking about.
So many people want to live in America, but why? We are not America, the beautiful. We are America, the Tyrant. The cruel and oppressive ruler as police officers get away by being their own judge and executor of the law. The cruel and oppressive ruler of shooting first and never ask questions. The cruel and oppressive ruler in turning their head the other way when they know the police actions are unjust and cannot be truthfully justified. When people can say they want their country back and this is not right when President Obama was elected into office and then re-elected into office, it really show the true color of most Americans.
In closing I will say this. America better wake up. So many police officers have open season on black people and people with disabilities. So many people are quick to say the police are justified in their killings, even though the person is unarmed. Before you judge another black person in this county, remember and recognized a few things. Us Americans uses a lot of things that were made by those that are black. Just to name a few, for there are a lot more than few, as we appreciate the traffic light from causing accidents and long traffic build-ups, compared to stop signs, you can thank Garrett Morgan. He also invented the first gas mask used in World War One and by fire fighters. Whenever you turn on a light, you are using one of the first inventions by Lewis Latimer. When we all get to that age where we may need cataract(s) removed, the doctors will use a tool made by Dr. Patricia Bath to help in that process. When you complain about that 90 degree heat and need some comfort via air conditioner, think of Fredrick M. Jones. Whenever you need to dry your clothes, rather commercially or at home, you can thank G.T. Sampson for the invention of the clothes dryer. For those rock stars and people that enjoy rock music, Robert F. Flamming Jr invented the guitar. Your loved one is in the hospital and need open heart surgery. Now, procedures are in place to improve the surgery all the time, but it could not had been done if it wasn’t for Surgeon Daniel Hale Williams, who performed the first successful open heart surgery in 1893. Had you sent a text message today? Had you called someone on your cellular phone, or 911 from your cellular phone? Henry T. Sampson invented the first Cellular Phone. There are many more, but why is this important? Anyone can create and invent things to make life better of course, but would these things really had been created by the blacks listed if they were shot and killed by a police officer or a judgmental person as the bullet races through their bodies; destroying everything in its path?
