In light of the continuing violence & destruction in Ferguson, MO which erupted as a result of the police-involved shooting death of Michael Brown (6’4”, nearly 300 pound teenager – just committed a robbery), it may be beneficial for some HONEST self-examination by us all to determine what our individual perceptions of this ongoing disturbance (and the re-occurrence of similar incidents of violence & destruction) really indicate about OBAMA’s American Society in 2014.
Metaphorically speaking… CLOSE YOUR EYES. (Obviously you can’t read this post with eyes closed… hence, the Metaphor reference).
With your eyes closed, CLEAR your Mind of all thoughts and prepare to receive a VISUAL IMAGE when you hear the next Word:
Now… did you envision throngs of Asian Foreign Exchange students overturning trash cans on college campuses, protesting tuition costs?
No ? Neither did I.
Sadly, we as a society in America have become so conditioned by the constant VIOLENT DESTRUCTIVE BEHAVIOR that follows practically every police-involved shooting of a “Black Youth”, that we Americans not only EXPECT such violent behavior, we resignedly ACCEPT it.
Our self-destructive passive tolerance of INTOLERABLE actions by criminal thugs who capitalize on tragedy to foment insurrection, violence, and destruction (Burning, Looting, Assault, Firebombs, etc.) is truly indicative of just how LOW our American Society has been dragged down by the “Political Correctness Police”, Race Hucksters, the Liberal Progressives, and even by the President (who has dispatched Eric Holder & the DOJ to Ferguson, MO).
What business has the US DOJ in investigating a local shooting incident (other than to further inflame an already inflammatory issue)? What message does it send when the President issues statements to the Liberal Mainstream Media before ANY investigation results of the incident have been made public ? The issue of minority shooting deaths could better be investigated by sending Holder and the DOJ to places like Chicago or Detroit, rather than to Ferguson, MO. But, the essential element of RACIAL TENSION simply doesn’t exist when both victim and shooter are of the same race. So, Obama gets much more “RACIAL MILEAGE” out of stoking the flames of “Civil Unrest” when he can. And any criticism of Obama for shameless pandering to minority “interests” at these times is immediately called RACISM.
America in 2014 is being dragged through much of the Racial Mud that the hard work of the Civil Rights movement of the early 60s sought to wash away from our collective soul.
And, sadly, current-day Race Relations are now suffering badly for it.
So now….. back to our visual image TEST…..
What vision popped into your own mind at the word: RIOT ?
Does that image make you a RACIST ??? Or merely a REALIST ?
If you can honestly answer REALIST, it’s a harsh new reality, isn’t it ?
Welcome to Obama’s Transformation of America in 2014.
Which begs another question in search of an HONEST response.
How’s all that “HOPE & CHANGE” feel now ?
