If Darren Wilson’s face was so messed up from him allegedly being attacked by Mike Brown (the unarmed kid Darren Wilson murdered), why did the all the Ferguson cops remove their name tags & any means of identifying themselves? Wouldn’t a busted ass eye have been identification enough?
I never liked the idea that choosing not to vote means you can’t have a political opinion. Some people choose not to vote because of their political opinion(s). They don’t believe in the current system(s), so why partake in it/them? Democrat, republican, or whatever party or form of government… It matters not, because time & time again, they prove to us that they only serve the interests of the rich. Our apathy with politics is a result of our dissatisfaction and exhaustion with systems that do not work—with systems that do not serve the interests of the people.
People are apathetic about politics because they are tired of their needs not being met, and they are tired of having no representation. People are tired and people are fearful—and that’s the worst thing that could happen. Thomas Jefferson said, “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.”
Poli + tics = Politics is full of many ticks (bloodsuckers of the poor)
Men have it all wrong: Women don’t mind having purely sexual relationships. It’s the stigmatization you and your friends put on us that is the problem. It’s the lack of respect that is the problem. Women would be a lot more open-minded, if men would stop being so stupid, hypocritical, and immature.
Religion is to be separate from government. If you vote according to your religion, you’re voting to infringe on the rights of others. I am not subject to the doctrines of a religion I do not follow—no one is. For the hundredth time, this is not a theocracy (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/theocracy). There is no state religion. Even the Christian and deist founding fathers sought to separate the two. You have to think what is fair for the group, and NOT “what least upsets/most aligns with my Christian/Muslim/etc sensibilities?”
I ask you again, since when is it okay for a police officer to execute an unarmed person? Even if Mike Brown stole something, that was NOT grounds to murder him. Was he not entitled to due process—or do a separate set of rules exist for Black people? When cops start “meting out justice” for themselves, rather than upholding the law and following the proper channels, they are nothing more than vigilantes. They should face the consequences. As people who hold a badge, swear an oath, and are SUPPOSED to enforce the law, are they not held to a higher moral standard? The fact of the matter is, cops don’t uphold the law. They protect rich, White interests and promote racist, fictitious stereotypes. They encourage White fear and paranoia. They break the rules, and think themselves “above the law.” They feel the law no loner applies to them, but I say it applies even more. How can you protect and serve, and uphold the law, but not be bound by its moral code?
For example, White people—statistically—do more drugs than Black people. However, more Black people are actually arrested and convicted of drug charges. Black people are more than 6xs more likely to go to jail for the same drug offense than a White person. Another example, stop and frisk laws in NY disproportionately target minorities, even though they rarely find anything on the minority people they harass. This isn’t even addressing the fact that stop and frisk laws violate the Constitution. But time and time again, we see that the Constitution—excellent, beautiful document that it is—does NOT apply to non-White people.
Why, thank you! My musical taste is something I’m proud of, lol. I love almost any genre, except country. But even with country music, I can appreciate a good song when I hear it. In fact, there are quite a few country songs that I like. An artist that I appreciate, though I don’t listen to her, is Reba McEntire. Countriness aside, I think she has a good, strong voice.
Anyway, just finished listening to
…It should greatly concern you that the KKK also supports him, and are raising money to support him in him “doing his job against that negro criminal (click here for info).”
It’s always a bad sign when a bunch of inbred, ignorant low-life White “supremacists” support your cause. As far as I’m concerned, any of you supporting the cop who murdered an unarmed teenager are nothing but Kowards without KloaKs. And the KKK are cowards, too. You only hide your face when you can’t be proud of what you’re doing. Shoutouts to all the anonymous donations.
