This whole Black Live Matter phenomenem has me stumped.
The most recent bunch of rioting and looting started when
a black policeman shot a black man with a gun. Yet this
group still turns it around and calls it racism. I admit
to not being the sharpest kinfe in the drawer, but the
reasoning behind that eludes me.
I was listening to the Jim Fisher show when a black man, who
identified himself as such, stated the shooting was racist
because white cops made the black cop shoot. The caller
then went on to say that Mr. Fisher didn’t know what it
was like to be a black man in America, how tough it was
for them, and finished by saying the host was a priveleged
That got me thinking the caller was right, to a point. I
don’t know what it feels like to be black in America yet
do have a problem with those who use the phrase. The same
people who say that call us the “priveleged” whites. Well
Mr. caller man, do you know what it feels like to be a
white man in America?
And since you don’t, how can you judge me? The white men
aren’t your problem unless they are in Washington, D.C.
The cause of your problems isn’t the police, racism, white
folks, or the myth that you’re owed something for nothing.
Look at your state and local governments too. I would bet
they have been run by one political party for decades, you
still have problems, and you hate us? You have bought the
bull they’ve been shipping while taking the freebies and
ignoring the decay around you.
Then when an excuse arises you destroy your city, burn
half of it down, and steal everything that isn’t bolted
down. Yeah I don’t know how that feels.
Comments are always welcome.
