A Double Standard?

Today was a day of rest and solace as I had the day off.  Unfortunately, a police officer died in the line of duty.  It is not known if the officer died of his injuries sustained in gunfire or in a high speed car crash after the shooting.  I do feel for the victim’s family as I feel for all others that fall victims to senseless criminal activity.

As I continue throughout the day, I see a gentleman holding a sign that reads “officers lives matter.”  This area is known for subtle prejudices.  I am not talking about a straight in your face being called out of your name or getting attacked verbally for your skin color.  This area is known for supporting in-town people and excluding those that are not born in the area.  This area is known for believing every outsider is stupid and believes those who are white and poor are better than those who are black and educated.  Like most other areas being covered by the media, there are shootings of innocent or unarmed citizens by police officers.  This brings me to something my mother always told me… “You reap what you sow.” This is what the Bible says, not what she says.  Again, I do feel bad for those whose lives are forever changed by a life-changing event.

When I fixed my eyes on the man with the officer lives matter sign, I was puzzled.  Why?  When this community voiced their opinions about black lives matter, non-African descent people were saying that’s crazy and called those supporting black lives matter racist.  They believed the police officers are doing their jobs by shooting and murdering unarmed people.  They look upon the police as the judge.  It is very hard to understand how the police get away with murder.  It is hard to understand how the police get away with planting contraband and other things.

We have Trump calling the person who murdered twenty-six people mentally ill.  This is no surprise because that’s the same others say about those who raided schools and other establishments with bullet holes; leaving behind the wounded and the deceased.  Even his former girlfriend would say he, Devin Kelley, is sick in the head.  Think about this for a moment. Don’t most people call others sick in the head?  Did they murder others?  I believe the police are sick in the head for planting evidence and murdering unarmed people, yet they are still patrolling the streets.

Let’s try an experiment.  After reading this next paragraph, I would like for you to close your eyes.  Imagine someone coming into a building with an automatic weapon and shooting up the place.  What would be the first thing that would come to your mind?  Is it the safety of ALL citizens; both European and African descent?  Is it the race of the person committing this terrible act?  Do you think it is a police officer?  Do you think it is a citizen who claims to be the perfect model citizen?

The bottom line is all lives matter.  It does not matter if the person is African or European descent or a police officer.  If we don’t get it together as a country we will all be doomed, which is something I am really afraid of.  People losing their jobs overseas due to the power of the all mighty dollar, people are required to have more education for a basic job, the cost of living is going up yet the rate of pay is steadily going down, we have kids in America with no food yet I see commercials of save the kids in other countries, we have animals that are in dire need of the basic necessities of life, and we have people that refuse to date others due to race or color; but we call ourselves Christians.  Really?

Do you think it is time us, as a country, reap what we sow?  Think about it…

Don’t Be Upset…

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.

Really? Not again!!!

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?

America the Tyrant!

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?

Police Officer gets Beat Up

I have seen videos regarding a couple of police officers who gotten beat up in Philadelphia.  I will not post the link for the fear of my post either getting reported or that person may contact and have the video deleted, but trust me when I say I have seen videos of it being done.

Now, I have mixed emotions about this, as well as other viewers of the videos.  I do understand a police officer is a human being, however, does that police officer or other police officers think about that before they shoot an unarmed person, or kill someone with a handicap?  I understand a police officer and other officers must protect themselves, hence the bullet-proof vest, however, do they think about just injuring a person that is unarmed instead of shooting in the chest? It appears the police officers are the hunters and citizens are the deers… innocent deers that are gunned down for the sake of just shooting as in relations of unarmed individuals that are gunned down for the sake of getting away with killing.

Juries refuse to indict, but the ONE thing I have is this… what if one of their family members were killed by a police officer?  What if their son or daughter was unarmed and was gunned down?  When an officer is not indicted, and they return to duty the very next day, something is wrong with our way of thinking.  I do hate to say I hope or wish someone from the jury will experience this in their family, but maybe that could be what is needed for indictments.

A Rant – CF Boston Brian Style

This is going to be a piggy back on my comment I made on Xena’s post regarding the funeral of Michal Brown…

You know.. seeing all of this senseless killing by those that we call to protect ALL citizens, not just WHITE or BLACK, but ALL make me feel very embarrassed to have been in the military.

The military – something that holds a beacon of freedom and unity, but it’s not so.  We actually live in a fa-sad.  We import a lot of things from countries we don’t know anything about, such as the water may be malaria-filled, or what type of pesticides used on things we eat.  Let’s not forget, things may not affect them, but will affect us.  I remember when I was stationed in Korea and they told us (military) not to drink their water, yet the Koreans drink it.  Just because a person jump off a building and live, does not mean everyone should do the same.

Our national anthem talks about land of the free and God Bless America, yet are we deserving to be free or blessed?  We have had the Civil War, and we are still living the Civil War.  How?  We are not using northern states versus southern states, yet it is more of white versus black, versus bi-racial.  America, a country that want to define me as being black instead of interracial.  America, a country that want to define President Obama as being black instead of being interracial (his mother is German).

I hate, and I mean HATE conceal carry.  According to the Constitution, we all have the right to bear arms, but as it was used by in the days it was created, it was to protect the HOME, not to venture outside the home and shot others.  Yes, we have gang violence, and we have robberies.  We also know the area(s) of these said gang violence and other malicious crimes.  As my mother had always told me, if you don’t go in the areas that are bad, why would you need a gun?  It seems like people are getting shot for no reason, especially in the back, where there is NOT a threat.  It all comes to JUDGMENT!

Matthew 12:36,37 – “But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.  For by they words thous shalt be justified, and by they words thou shalt be condemned.”  Jesus Christ said this, not CF Boston Brian.

Romans 14:10 – But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set a nought (badness) thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.  Who?  ALL of us, and our bodies holds our spirits and as others see us, we are black, white, Asian, etc… but our spirits is NOT a race.  When we need blood, it is not characterized as black o+ or white ab Negative.  It is what it is.. blood.

Why do we all do what we do?  I believe it is race driven.  Why?  Would you allow your daughter or son date and bring home a person that is of a different race AND not wonder if they are going to steel something?  We are taught as kids, and by music, about race and judgments that are passed down from our families of how people are of that race.  When America can talk about race and talk about it daily, maybe we can all see each other through our own eyes.

I hold true to two quotes that I love to use very much…
– “And you wonder why we don’t like you” – Chronicles of Narnia
– “Are we Americans when the mood suits you?” – Tuskegee Airmen

Something of Interest

It was conveyed to me, from a reliable sourse, that there are more black people getting shot by police since 2008/2009 than blacks being lynched since the Civil War.  Isn’t it ironic that this started happening AFTER the election of President Obama?  One thing I love (not) is how others can call him a black man.  He is not black, but bi-racial.  Is that hard to understand?  He has a German mother, who is white and an African father.  I too am bi-racial and get very offended and upset by others calling me black, or try to make me identify myself as black, when I have white culture in me as well.  It is the same as the term “African Americans” to describe black people.  I dislike the use of that term for blacks.  Why?  There are South Africans, that are white.  They too are African Americans.  Just like people from Egypt are called Egyptians, but they are Africans.  Either way it goes, all of Africa are Africans (South Africa, Egypt, Libya, etc.).

As I think about life in America, I think of how racist this country really is.  Most people refuse to talk about race, saying we are better since we have a black (but I call him bi-racial) president in the white house.  Most republicans talk about they want their country back and he is an Arab and things of this sort.  He was the one that got Bin Laden, not Bush. Bush wanted to do what his father could not do, which was kill Hussein, now we have a greater thread – Isis.  Funny how Hussein kept Isis at bay and killed Isis members until his death by his own people, which signify Isis want to gain control of the region. Now, here we are today right..

To be back on point – it is a shame police officers get away with murder.  Shooting of innocent people (unarmed) is something police has been able to get away with for YEARS; yet they will arrest you for shooting other people.  It is a shame that some cops make it bad for all cops, which is the same as cops judge others, yes?  They judge one black person or mentally challenge person as that is the whole group.

I heard about the Utah gentleman that gotten shot and killed.. shot in the back by police officers.  He had an afro and was not of fair skin.  After the murder, the mother, who is white, said if her son was 100 percent white, the cops would not have shot him, but because he looks black, they shot first and apologize later.  Who does this remind you of… George Zimmerman, maybe?

Racism used to occur a lot in the south, and now it is occurring a lot in the northern states now.  The statue of Liberty and the national anthem states, “land of the free and the home of the brave.”  Is it?  Are we really free?  Cops choose to be judge and executioner, even in states that does not support the death penalty.  As a former military person, I have conflict of how this country view me and appreciate the blood and sweat I have suffered for it; just to be called names and constantly looked at as I go shopping in stores.  Being of mixed race is just as bad as being black in society as we are judged as such.

We are good enough to play basketball for Team USA.  We are good enough to box (boxing) for Team USA.  We are even good enough for track and field for Team USA; but we are not good enough to be Americans AFTER we bring medals to the land of America.  They are being treated like military veterans injured in combat, lost limbs, and returned to America – rotten and cruel; often called names.  Funny how people say to me, as the movie of Tuskegee Airmen have shown as well – why do I want to fight for and willing to die for a country that thanks me by calling me “nigger.”  My answer, I really don’t know.  I have family members that are all former military, and I guess I have to keep that legacy alive, but that is a valid point.  Society only see black, white, and Latin.  Society don’t believe there is a such thing as bi-racial people.

Are we Americans when the mood suites you?
