My mom once told me the fastest way to be offended was to go looking for offense. Given the current cottage industry of being outraged every time some genius gets himself killed by the police I sense the black community, at least in some areas, is looking pretty damn hard to be offended. Lets be honest here, according to the so called Justice Department over the last few years nearly twice as many white people were killed by police than blacks. It would seem, so says the government, the fastest way to be killed by the cops is to be white, not black.
Even so, I might could understand at least some of the outrage if the “victims” of the police had been straight A student choir boy types. The fact is that in nearly every case the “victims” were either street level thugs, had criminal histories and either resisted arrest or actively fought with the police. Given the mindset of todays average rap loving criminal they apparently felt they could escalate their way out of being arrested. One wonders if these gangster wannabes had visions of glory in their heads thinking they could kill a cop and gain immortality through a rap song extolling their exploits. Those of us who reside in the real world know and accept that no police officer is required to allow himself to harmed to satisfy a twisted sense of black entitlement. Hey all you poverty pimps and race hustlers, get over it.
To my mind, the rioters in Baltimore, Ferguson etc are proof that far to many blacks have traded in their humanity for a welfare check and an attitude. They base their actions on a lie that their own justice department has proven. Allow me to repeat myself, the fact is the fastest way to get shot by the police today is to be white.
Sadly, the facts are irrelevant. The rioters and those who egg them on, hide behind the twin myths of racism and poverty.
You want to talk about poverty? I knew a young lady in the Philippines who literally lived in a pallet built shack that had a corrugated tin roof and a dirt floor. Her only other possessions were the bamboo mat she slept on, a deck of playing cards and the few clothes she had wadded up in one corner. When I asked her about her poverty she said she didn’t have time to worry about it, she was getting an education and saving as much money as she could so that someday she could live in an actual home.
Sorry rioters, in the poverty game, you lose.
The only poverty the looters in Baltimore, Ferguson etc suffer from is a poverty of character, human decency, empathy and reason. I am sure after an exciting day of looting and rioting most of these so called activists run to their government paid for homes, switch on their flatscreen TV’s and stuff their faces with government provided food while they wait to see if they got their sorry faces on tv.
You want to talk about racism? Have you listened to the filth you call rap? Talk about mindless self induced abuse. How is rap even music? How does your choosing to wallow in the gutters of the music world make me a racist?
You want to talk about racism? I will wager a solid majority of these so called activists have chosen to abandon education to nurse pumped up grievances and run around in the streets. How does your choice to remain ignorant and act stupidly make me a racist? If you choose to remain uneducated you have still made a choice. And don’t even try to tell me the knock out game isn’t as racist as it comes. Racism is alive and well but only in the democratic party and much of the “black” communities “leadership”.
I will tell you something your rap music, public educators and race hustling poverty pimps wont. It is unpleasant. It is unavoidable. Drum roll please. Every choice you make comes with consequences. While you get to choose your course of action you do not get to choose your consequences.
Finally, a bonus for those who have stuck this out to its end. Bad choices often lead to bad outcomes. Sometimes bad choices lead to tragic outcomes and in real life tragedy cares not what color your skin is.
