Some people killed some people.
Some people who shared similarities with the people who were killed got mad that those people were killed because it really seemed senseless.
And then it happened again.
And you see where this is going. Well each time this happened, the people who shared those similarities got mad.
Duh. Of course. Their similarities made then different from the people who shot the gun who killed the people, but it didn’t make them ‘bad’.
DIFFERENT DOESN’T = BAD
And they got scared. Because if they shared those similarities….could they be next? Is it just a case of wrong place, wrong time? It needs to stop. How do we stop it? We ALL know it needs to stop!
But when it comes to these police officer shootings, perhaps the media shouldn’t be looking to black community to see how they are going to fix this problem. This is a primarily white person problem. (I know the office in Minnesota was of Asian descent, but that is an outlier.)
WE need to fix this. It’s not up to the black community to educate us. To stop us.
Just like it isn’t up to the LGBT community to educate us.
Just like it wasn’t up to children of Sandy Hook to educate us.
Media-focus your camera here, to see what we are going to do, what I am going to do. And not on the grieving black community.
