I seem to smell the stench of appeasement in the air.
As a nation, we need to stop appeasing the Black Live Matter extremist. We can’t continue to allow the civil unrest that takes over city blocks, overthrows police precincts, burndown businesses, and murder people. I have no problem with protesting, especially protesting that falls in the line of the Constitution. But riots and overthrowing of cities, murder, and looting is does not fall into that.
Yes, I understand that many blacks feel that they have no voice. But creating unrest like what is happening now is not helping your cause. As I mentioned before and still stand by, most Americans actually were on your side over George Floyd’s death. We were the closes to agree that some police are abusive and overstepping their use of force. But now those very same Americans, white, black, yellow, brown, and etc. have fallen away from your cause because of places like CHAZ /CHOP. I have even seen videos from a former Black Live Matter member calling out the current “protesting”.
The appeasement of Seattle and Washington State is probably one of the craziest things I have seen so far. Just today I saw that they have replaced the makeshift barriers with concrete road barriers. The city says that they are simply allowing the people to express their Constitutional rights to protest. However, these very people have made it pretty clear that they were calling their area CHAZ, or Capital Hill Autonomous Zone. But once they figured out that autonomous actual means they were calling themselves a separate country, they changed to CHOP. CHOP now stands for Capital Hill Organized Protest. Something that really covers up their true purpose and so people could help supply them.
Then you have Albuquerque. There you have a local government that thinks sending unarmed social workers will keep the peace. These social workers will be used for certain 911 calls. I can not think of a single 911 call that this will play out well. If the call requires a 911 call, that means in the nature of a 911 call it is an emergency. Can you send them to a family dispute? Nope, many cops would tell you those are some of the most dangerous calls. Disobedient teen, nope, especially teen boys that like to fight. The list goes on and on. Truth is the whole social worker issue in my opinion is going to get a large number of social workers killed in the long run.
Then we have the white people bowing down to blacks. Worst yet is the police officers that believe that is a good idea, let alone a chief of police. And before you say some of these cops are kneeing with Black Lives Matter and praying with them. That is not the same thing. Those are where the people of both side have their heads on right and understand that one bad cops does not mean they are all bad.
The bowing down is wrong of so many levels. For starters, no one alive today even knows what it was like for the slaves, no one today ever lived under slavery, and no one should ever bow down to another person in America. The next thing is that great black men and women like Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Frederick Douglas, and Booker T. Washington would have never forced a white person to the ground like that. In fact Martin Luther King Jr. even is quoted as saying such darkness only roots out more darkness.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Forcing or requiring anyone to bow down to another as no love in it.
He also told us what we really need to do.
I look to a day when people will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
When we can look past one’s color of skin we will be able to move forward. I will add to his quote because it seems that many black and white people can’t even look past their own color today without guilt, shame, or excuses as to who they can be today.
