If I Dislike What You Do: That Means I Must Hate You; Right?

If I Dislike What You Do: That Means I Must Hate You; Right?

 

I make these observations from sixty years of life, with thirty plus behind the wheel of a truck roaming the lower 48 States and all Provinces of the beautiful country of Canada. These are just a few thoughts, don’t mean that I agree with any or all of them, how about you?

  1. Being I don’t care anything for the game of Hockey: That must mean that I am anti-Canadian, right?
  2. I really don’t care anything for the sport of Basketball: So you know, I’m prejudice toward tall folks.
  3. I don’t care anything about Horse Racing: That means I must be anti-short people.
  4. I really don’t care much about Car Racing: Does this mean I’m anti-Hill Billy?
  5. I care nothing about the game of Soccer: So, that means I gotta be anti-rest of the world, right?

 

I am anti violence, what does that make me? A target, a patsy? Only a fool breaks into another man’s house to see if they will be carried out.

I am anti-hate, anti-racist, what does this make a person? Does this make one naive, or, maybe more Christ like?

If one is anti-Democrat does it then make them minorities and poor folk haters? Maybe a person just can’t personally back a ‘Party’ who is responsible for the death of millions of babies each year!

Of course if one is anti-Republican it must mean you hate grumpy, old, rich, white guys? Isn’t self-absorbed politicians of our time, whether they are Republican or Democrat enough to make the “system’ puke out a 3rd, 4th, or even 5th ‘Party’?

Bernie or Trump, these two ends don’t attract each other, yet millions flocked to them, for what, hope?

Anti-Islamic terrorism ideals are not anti-Muslim or anti-Persian, to not be so is, anti-humanity and anti-God!

What can people do when you are hated by millions? Do you let them stay and kill you? Do you physically remove them from your living area? Do you let them stay and you also stay and try to live with them, or maybe convert them?

Like I said at the beginning this article like most of my articles are for the reason of creating thought, hopefully among many, hopefully thoughts of caring about each other when possible, hopefully eliminating hate some day.

Do Young Black Americans Care About The Things Doctor MLK Taught?

Do Young Black Americans Care About The Things Doctor MLK Taught?

 

We here some these days about a so-called ‘angry white men’ generation that we are all coexisting in. Out side of angry black folks, usually under fifty years of age, I don’t recall hearing it outside of the media and their talking heads. Aren’t you as an individual person a bit tired of being told what we are and what we think by the media and the politicians? It does appear to me that by what we get to see and hear from the media is that the current world we are living in here in America is one where the slogan ‘angry black folks’ would be more correct. I never condone violence but anger is another issue all together. Doctor King did not condone violence either yet how could he and God Himself not be angered at the conditions of how non-whites were treated here in America, especially here in the South? Did black people of the 1960’s get treated as less than equals by white American? By what I have seen on film and read in books the horrible history of our Country is that it was pathetic how some folks treated others. Are things anywhere near that bad for black Americans today? Personally I believe that the correct answer is, not close. But do black folks get treated as less than equal in some people’s eyes yet today? Of course some do, by some, but absolutely not all. Black Americans just like all Americans have the right to voice their displeasure at the high crime rates and the lack of survivable income level jobs. If you as a person, black or not, believe that your group, race related or not, is being treated unfairly we all have the right to get mad yell, scream, holler and march all that we want to, and we have the right to vote. What we do not have the right to do is to be violent, to do harm to another person or another’s property. You Cops out there, the same goes for you. No one has the right to be the aggressor. Today a person gets called a white bigot for ‘their racist’ views. Yet if a person actually listens to the words that came out of Doctor Kings mouth, was he not saying the same things? Was Doctor King a white bigot? Personally I do not believe that Doctor King was any type of bigot. Personally I believe that Doctor King was an excellent human being. In my opinion I believe that he was an excellent Christian Minister. Do I believe that he had human flaws, yes, of course he did. Did Doctor King preach for or condone any violence, not that I have heard, seen, or read. Yet he did speak reality when it came to violence. Even in his famous “I Have A Dream’ speech he spoke of up coming violence if white America did not change their ways toward other races. He did not condone that violence yet he was being a realist about it.

 

I am a white male, I spent almost all of my adult life between 1981 and 2013 behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer unit driving all over the lower 48 U.S. States and all the Provinces of Canada. I came across a lot of Police during that time, to the best of my memory I never had any trouble with any black Cops nor any Oriental Cops. The majority of Cops that I had interaction with were white males. Of the white female Cops I had interaction with I would have to say that at least half were what I would have to call ‘smart asses’. Of the white males I would have to say about 10% were also smart asses. Mostly I chalked their attitudes up to being immature punks. Hispanic Cops, I would say about 1/3 were the same. American Indian Cops, at least 2/3 were the same, arrogant punks. What I counted their actions up to was that when they seen me they just expected me to be racist because I was a white guy, personally I found that to be a sad reality. I never ever was anything but kind and mellow toward Officers because I knew the power they had in their hands to ruin my life, or even to end it if they so chose to. Of the times Officers acted like punks toward me, how many was because of race, I don’t know? How many were just punks, I don’t know that answer either. I do know that maturity is an issue that every Police Department in the Country needs to address constantly, but, so does every industry in the world. When you are wearing a uniform and you choose to act like an ass, it just gets more people’s attention. Just like if you are driving a big truck, if you drive like a moron, more people notice your stupidity, you show up more.

 

Is there still racism in America, unfortunately that answer is yes. Is it in every race, yes. Is there violence in every race, yes. Here in America it seems like the Media always pounces on the cases when a White Police Officer beats up or kills a Black person yet they seem to pretty much ignore when a Black Police Officer does the same to a person of any other race. To me, all of these aggression’s should be a front page news story, they are all wrong, they should never ever happen. Yet here is the tie in with this articles main concept with the teachings of Doctor Martin Luther King. What I have notice in at least 80% of the cases when a video pops up of a White Officer being aggressive with  a Black citizen what the video constantly shows is the Black person almost never ever simply doing what they are told to do by the Officer. I don’t remember which Black Police Chief that said on camera a couple of years ago to the citizens after Officers had killed someone they were trying to arrest, he used a great common sense statement, he said “comply and stay alive”. What video’s have shown over and over again, Black suspects being aggressive and refusing to comply with Officers orders. Would Doctor King condone these killings, of course not. Would he condone people being aggressive toward the Officers and not following the commands of the Officers, of course not. What I have said/taught to my Son who is 25 now and he is on the Autism Spectrum, any time you are in contact with a Police Officer this Officer has the ability to ruin the rest of your life, the ability to beat the hell out of you even if you are being totally nice to them, or this Officer has the ability to end your life right there where you are at. So, I have taught him to always be nice and always obey them, at once, do not argue, just do what you are told. This goes even if you believe that you are totally right and they are totally wrong, obey at once and keep your mouth shut unless they ask you a question.

 

This articles headline speaks to young Black folks and their caring or not caring about the teaching of Doctor King, there is a reason for me choosing young Black folks for this title. What I noticed throughout my travels and what I have seen of TV screens throughout the years is the ‘culture’ of young folks being, acting, out as ‘gangster’. Is this just part of the ‘Hip Hop’ culture? Folks, I’m no Genius, I don’t know the answers to all that ails us as a human race. I just want peace and kindness for all, toward all. I try my best to look at all things from the eyes, the teachings of God. All this violence, this hate, this lack of love, of caring for each other is sickening to my heart and Soul, just as it was to the heart and Soul of Doctor King and just as it is to the heart and Soul of God. Will we as a people ever change?

Theology of Race and Hate

RACE AND HATE

 

God doesn’t care what color a person’s skin is, just who the heck do we think we are, do we think we are smarter than God? Racism is stupid and evil, so is hate, so is violence. Humans are so ignorant and so evil, it is sad. Truth will not be tolerated in our country because the tail is waging the dog. The 1% who control the media and the politics in our country are simply evil and they are doing everything they can to promote their views upon the rest of the world. This morning on GMA there was an advertisement of a very young girl, a singer, who is going to be on their program soon. I guess she is popular and she is very pretty but what my wife and I noticed was in the advertisement she was trying to be as sexy as she possibly could be through all of her actions and movements, if you didn’t know she was a singer you might well think she was getting ready to do a strip show. Our society is in sad shape. If we don’t very soon start viewing the world through Jesus’s eyes and not through the eyes of our races this country is going to implode. The problem is we are to stupid as a Nation to change the evil path we are on. It is sad to me because I love this country, I love the land and I love all the people because I just don’t care what your skin color is and I pity those who do put color first in their lives. For people whose hearts are ruled by hate the Devil is waiting on you to come join him in his retirement pad. If your heart is filled with hate you are already walking with him now hand in hand to your eternal home. I only feel sorrow for you, not hatred. I just ask all people to please, consider our ways before it is too late for our Country and for our own Soul.

52 Years Ago Today Black Muslim Malcolm X Was Assassinated By Black Muslims

 

When Malcolm X was murdered on February 21st 1965 I was only 8 1/2 years old and I had only heard of his name a couple of times, I am guessing it was from the evening news that my Dad used to watch with Walter Cronkite. I was a poor southern white boy living in an area where I do not remember anyone but other white folks were living. People were so dirt poor around there that news from the ‘outside’ world seemed to matter very little. The first time I ever even realized that there was an ‘outside’ world was when the NSA (my personal belief) murdered President Kennedy in November of 1963, I was in second grade at that time. What little I had heard of Malcolm X was that he was a Black man who was very racist against White folks and that he preached a lot of hate and favored violence, that is about all I knew of the man. I do not recall hearing anything at all about him being a Muslim until I was in about 9th grade, quite honestly at that time I had no idea what a Muslim even was. Once I started hearing his name mentioned I remember I started reading what material I could find on him, to get a jest of who the man was.

 

Now I am no expert on the man and I do not claim to have known his mind, all I can go on is the opinions I have formed through what others have written about him. I do remember hearing about his murder on the evening news, at that time the act of murder was quite new to me. Outside of President Kennedy I don’t believe I had ever heard of anyone being murdered. I have learned from reading an article from his daughter about the evening he was shot dead in front of her how her Dad was standing at a podium when three men came into the room shooting toward her Dad and I remember still of hurting for this young girl. She said that the first shot that was fired hit her Dad and he fell straight backwards onto the floor, evidently the first shot killed him instantly. How does a child ever get such a scene out of their mind?

 

By what I have learned about the life and times of Malcolm X was that he was quite the radical spouting hate toward White folks and demanding equality for Black folks by ‘any means necessary’, including violence. His doctrine at the time was one that I am sure scared a lot of White folks and just downright angered many more. He was not a man in the mold of Doctor Martin Luther King Jr who preached peaceful resistance for obtaining equality through morality. Not long before Mr. X was killed he took a tour of the Arab Nations and when he returned to the States his message had mellowed out, he was not preaching hate anymore. To me one of the things that is sad about the whole issue is that when his message turned to peaceful resistance he was murdered because of that change in philosophy. You see the Black Muslim men who murdered him did so because he had been their poster boy for hate and violence so when he changed his ideals on how to obtain equal rights for America’s Black Folks, they murdered him.  I am glad that the evil men who pulled the trigger on him were also Black or there would have been even more innocent people killed here in this country, all because of racism. Malcolm X was killed in 1965, Dr. King in 1968, I can’t help but wonder what each man would think of the America of today.

Do Black Lives Or Any Lives Really Matter In The Society’s Of Today?

 

Here in the States we see and hear of evil everyday on the different news feeds we have at our fingertips. Just this morning I heard of an active shooter in SW Houston Texas where a disgruntled lawyer went on a shooting spree wounding 9 people before the Police shot and killed him. As of the time of this report I do not know if the color of ones skin had anything to do with who was shot this morning or not. Just a couple of days ago an idiot shot and killed 5 people at a mall in Washington State. In that instance it appears to me that gender and the religious beliefs of the shooter had a huge role in those murders. Yet even when there are mass shootings here in the U.S. the mass media focuses most of its airtime whenever a Black person is killed by a Police Officer than on any other of these events. It seems that in our American Media there is always the effort to divide and take sides when this happens. I guess because hatred, racism, ignorance and criminal activities sell more papers and airtime.

 

Do I think that some Police Officers are racist and or just plain punks? Yes of course I do, I have lived 60 years here in the States and I am an eye-witness to such events several times. Do I believe that all Police Officers are racist or punks, no, not at all, that would be bias and quite stupid of me to think that. Yet it is my belief that some people do believe that about all Police Officers and if they do then I believe that they have become exactly what they hate, racist, hate filled punks themselves. Do I believe that the young Black man who was shot and killed by a Black plain clothed Police Officer in Charlotte North Carolina this past week was a racist act? No I don’t unless the Black Officer was a person who is bias against his own race. Also earlier this week there was another case of a young Black man being shot and killed by a White lady Police Officer in Tulsa Oklahoma. Do I believe that race had anything to do with this shooting? Yes I do. Each case of a Police shooting has to be analyzed separately. Every human case is different because the humans involved are different. The lady Officer in Tulsa has been charged with first degree manslaughter but the Officer in Charlotte has not been charged with anything, at least not yet. Personally I believed and still believe that the Officer in Tulsa should have been charged with second degree murder. I have known a lot of Officers in my life and I know that some do always carry a ‘throw down’ gun or a knife just in case they mess up and shoot an unarmed person they can throw down that weapon so that they don’t get charged with shooting an unarmed person. Is this what happened in Charlotte? By what I have

seen on tapes and pictures, it looks to me like this might well be one of those throw down situations.

 

The big issue on these shootings because of the media trying to sell airtime and news papers is when they can bring race into the forefront. There are far more people in this Country that are shot by Police Officers that are not black folks than the cases where they are Black folks. Yet we hear very little in the Nations media unless it is a Black person who got shot. The media and those ignorant enough to believe their bias hype could believe that Police Officers only shot black people. There are plenty of cases though where I do believe the person’s skin color got them executed by a Police Officer like where that young Black kid was shot 16 or 17 times as he lay on the street in Chicago. In my opinion this is a case of first degree murder and the Cop should be charged with first degree murder and nothing less.

 

How much ruckus do you hear in the media when any other race of person is shot by an Officer when the one shot wasn’t Black? How about when a White person is shot by an Officer? Now, when was the last time there were any riots when a Hispanic, Indian or Asian person was shot by an Officer? America’s media play the race card mostly/only when it is a Black person who has been shot. Our society has been groomed to treat Black folks different in almost all issues. Some of these issues are good but many are toward the negative. Before the 1960’s all non White people were treated horribly not just the Black folks. It is true that the only ‘legal’ slaves in this Country were Black people but slavery ended more than  150 years ago. No one in our Country today has ever even known someone who was a ‘legal’ slave nor has anyone ever been one. Slavery of any kind is a sickening thing to even think about and it is nothing to ever joke about. Have you ever watched the movies Roots or Django? How about the TV program on WGN out of Chicago called Underground? If these situations don’t make you sick at your stomach, have you no morality?

 

This ‘movement’ here in America called ‘Black Lives Matter’ in my opinion is nothing not much more than a racist movement of hate. Do Black lives matter? Absolutely they do, but so does every life, equally. Should it be okay for people in this Country to protest peacefully against the Government or against a Police Department’s? Yes, of course it should be okay for everyone in this Country to peacefully protest yet the word Peacefully is the key word. In Charlotte we have seen once again where folks, mostly Black folks have protested with violence and the Nations media has remained very quiet about it because if they spoke the truth they would be accused of being racist towards Black people. Think about it, people riot, burning vehicles, breaking into store and tractor trailers on the interstate and blocking off a major interstate and it is said by some that these rioters were simply ‘street cleaners’, how sickening! The media have created their own monster. The Black Race in this Country has been allowed to be racist in almost all venues. Think about these issues for a moment please. Here in this Country there are such things as the NAACP, the Black Miss America Pageant, the Negro College Fund, Black Colleges, Black Churches, Black Congressional Caucuses, Black Businessmen Associations, Black Lives Matter Movement and the list goes on and on. Now think about it, if there were such things as the National Association of White People, the White Miss America Pageant, the White Peoples College Fund, White Colleges and White Churches, White Congressional Caucuses, White Businessmen Associations, or the White Lives Matter Movements a huge amount of America’s Black folks would be livid, ranting and raving about how racist these groups are and how they had to be stopped from existing? The same thing would happen if there were Associations like this for Asian, Hispanic or Indian folks. There is a group of white folks that most everyone knows of called the KKK and rightfully so, most Americans have no use for their hatred. My question to everyone is, shouldn’t every single thing is this Country that is in any way race based be made illegal? Are they not all hate groups? Are they not all bias?

 

Racism is a huge problem in this country and racism does exist in some people in every race on the planet. Racism is simply another term for hatred of those who aren’t like we, that person is. I am a white guy by birth, I like everyone else ever born had no say so concerning my skin color when I came out of the womb. Skin color does not make me a good person or a bad person. My skin color had nothing to do with me being or not being a racist hate filled person, nor did it you. I have first hand experienced hate because of my white skin. This has happened many times from Black folks, Hispanic folks and from Indian folks. I have also experienced hatred from White people who were mad at me because I was daring to speak with a non-White. Now the question is, do Black Lives Matter? I think you know my answer by now so the question is to you, do Black Lives Matter? The question is also to all of the Black folks reading this article today, are you a racist, do you hate any other race of people, or all the other people who are not Black? Hatred like racism is a disease of the mind and of the Soul. Everyone on this planet are brothers and Jesus made it plain that if we hate our brother without a cause (something they can’t help or do anything about, like skin color) then we are condemning our own selves to Hell. I’m just saying, racism is an individual personal thing, we choose to be or not to be. So now my last question to you is, what have you chosen to be?

America’s Police Problem Is Far More Than A Race Issue

 

I am not here today to rag America’s Police Agencies. But I’m not here to give them or us regular civilians a free ride either. I am going to try to relay my thoughts to you on this issue so that you can compare your thoughts, with mine. I know that there is a race issue in this country and by a race issue I am referring to it as a hate issue, a lack of love issue, a lack of giving a flip about others, issue. American media outlets tend to want to paint America as a black and white country when it is not. There are many races of people here in the States, not just Black Folks and White Folks. There is also the issue of multi-race races, the so-called Browning of America. There are multiple police shootings within the country each year but the media only wants to display the ones where a White Officer shoots an unarmed Black Man. Where are the media when the situation’s is reversed? Why aren’t the Police Officers and their families awarded as much ink when Officers are murdered? Hey, I’m picking on everybody today, why not the glory hound media people?

 

I drove Our Nations highways for a living for more than thirty years. From 1981 thru 2013 I put over five million miles on our Nations roadways. During this time a person tends to notice how trends are headed more and more toward a Police State, but that is a debate for another time. Back in the late 1980’s I noticed a trend where Police when they pulled someone over to the shoulder of the road that the Officers started putting their hands on their weapons as they walked up to the vehicles. I totally believe that this was/is for their own safety why they started doing this. You used to almost never see that on a simple traffic stop. Then it became more and more common to the point now that it would seem odd (and unsafe) for them not to do so.

 

When Police Officers had to honestly be worried for their lives every time they pull a vehicle over it upped the game for every Officer on every stop. To help keep Officers safe they are taught to enter a situation with overpowering force so that no sane person would dare become aggressive. They are taught to always make sure that the one they are having to deal with knows very plainly that it is they the Officer who is in charge of the current situation. This style does work, but is it necessary all of the time? Also do we civilians somehow think we need to pick this time to act like a spoiled little kid who got their brain stuck in the cookie jar? Folks is this really the best time to start having ignorance of the mouth disease with the Officers?

 

When I was a very small child you used to hear on T.V. and in grade school that if you were ever lost or in trouble to find the nearest Police Officer because they will always be helpful. Are kids still being taught this in our society today? I grew up seeing Police acting in very unfriendly and aggressive ways toward everybody, well, except for the wealthiest of the residents. Folks I am a white guy who grew up in small towns where almost all the citizens with white with only white cops who acted in very unprofessional ways a lot. Race had nothing to do with anything, it is the mentality of the Bullies and the Punks that invade their Departments that Departments themselves must remove first, then get retraining. For there to actually be a civilized society the Police and the Population must be friends with each other, not combatants.

 

The aggressive culture of Policing Agency’s needs to be backed off a notch or two when it is at all possible. I have heard Sheriffs talking on radio programs referring to themselves as “para-military organizations”, Folks, no you are not. For the most part all American police officers are only dealing with the local population, except for when they are working on the interstate. Should an Officer be super careful when he pulls a vehicle over, of course, there are idiots and A-holes who will shoot an Officer and call it entertainment. There is also the issue of the population needing to pretend they have a brain when they are in contact with an Officer. Trying to act your ignorant big and bad self should be done at some other time. Reality is that most Cops tend to be alpha-males/females and they are in a very dangerous job. Even if you are an Alpha person if you decide to show the Officer that you want to play a game of low I.Q’s, it is you who will lose that war.

 

We as a Nation must become less hate filled and angry, so often just looking for anyone else to blame for our own moral short-falling (and yes I do mean a moral issue). Hating someone because of them wearing  a uniform is as ignorant as hating someone because they were born in or from a different country than what we call our own. Are they’re racist within policing agency’s? I believe the correct answer is, most likely. But unfortunately there are low-life type people woven within the fabric of every Nation, in every occupation, not just in policing agencies. If a semi tractor-trailer unit gets in an accident of any kind, we sorta of stick our heads on a neon sign, we are noticed easier. If a person wearing a uniform does something arrogant or illegal, they need to understand that sometimes they will get caught on at least one camera. As an Officer you should not have to be afraid of interaction with the public, we are not your enemy. Officers need to be more friendly when it is possible for them to do so, and to only become aggressive if the civilian becomes physically combative with them. Peace, kindness, and caring must be nurtured from both sides of this divide.

 

Here in America we have seen two cases of police officers acting in horrible manners these past two days on many of our news agencies. Two people are dead because of the actions of police that were way wrong. We have seen a man be murdered in Baton Rouge Louisiana and another murdered in Saint Paul Minnesota, both of these murders were committed by local police officers. What is even more sad is that both of these incidences happened because of a race issue and in a society for it to be civil or moral, these things must be stopped. Across America District Attorneys have for decades allowed the police officers to be bullies and thugs and this issue must stop or the police killings will not stop. In 1964 the US Supreme Court made a huge mistake, they passed a law where District Attorneys can not be held liable for their ‘mistakes’ that they may make. They did not believe that D.A.’s would be dishonest in matters like withholding evidence for the purpose of convicting people of crimes that they didn’t commit. The Supreme Court in 1964, in my opinion, was way out of touch with reality. The former Governor of the state of Illinois had to revoke all death sentences because once DNA came into existence it proved that many of the people who were on death row should not have even been in jail. Many of these people had been framed by lazy and crooked cops, most of them from Chicago and Cook County. Until Americas DA’s decide to do their ‘moral’ obligations to their communities and start charging the police officers when they commit crimes like murder with murder, nothing will ever get better.

The Human Race: We Say We Want Peace Yet We Refuse To Stop Our Own Personal Violence

 

In general terms, is the human race incapable of being truthful to our own selves? What gave me the idea for this article today was my reading the Times Of Israel article about the people they have lost to violent acts of terror against them since Israel re-became a Nation. The count was over 23,000 people taken away from their families by acts of hate. The article said that in this past year that 68 IDF soldiers and police officers had died in the line of duty and 32 Israeli civilians. Folks that is an even 100 Israeli people whom hate killed, these people would most likely all be alive today if not for the ignorance of hate. Yet when we through our hate carry it to “extreme prejudice” by on purpose killing another person we have lowered ourselves into the Devils playpen. As I hope you did notice, I did not include the people of the Gaza Strip or the West Bank who died from Israelis committing violence on them. Then there is the issue of how many people in those two conclaves have been killed by their own government officials. By the accounts that I have noticed it seems that on a loose average about 10-15 of the Palestinian population die for every Israeli that dies.

 

There is a line of thought that I would like us all to follow for a moment. If you personally were the leader of either Palestinian conclave and you really hated all the Israeli people to the point that you wanted them all to die, please ask yourself this question. How much is the lives and quality of life of the citizens under your flag valued at to you personally? Are they worth nothing to you? How about 15 for 1 person in Israel? Why would any sane human being be willing to trade even 10 for 1? If you are the commander of a unit and you know that you are going to lose at least 10 of your soldiers for every one you kill of theirs if you go through with your next attack, do you still go through with it? Buddy if still would sacrifice your people like that, you are a cold-hearted piece of the Devils shit, literally!

 

The point I am trying to get to is if you really actually want peace with Israel and you want your own families to live longer healthier and happier lives then stop 100% of all violence toward everyone, and I do mean everyone.  If the Nation of Israel actually wants peace and you are not committing any acts of violence toward them, let them prove that to you, your people, and the people of the world that they want peace with you right now and forever. When you attack, Israel counter attacks and you lose far more than they do, always. So, the point is, quit all violence, everyone, then we will see who is telling the truth about wanting peace. Yet if your own personal charter states that you will not ever accept peace, why should anyone including the people and the government of Israel believe anything you have to say about anything? The only way for there to be peace anywhere in the world is if every human refuses to harm another human. Don’t be fooled, I know that peace will never happen because the human race prefers to act like Demonic fools. This is why at the Second Advent of Christ the Nations of the world will fight against Jesus and His Angels and human blood will flow to the horses reins. In other words, folks we condemn our own selves with the ignorance we refuse to let go of, the ignorance of hate, and of violence.

If I Dislike What You Do: That Means I Must Hate You; Right?

If I Dislike What You Do: That Means I Must Hate You; Right?

 

I make these observations from sixty years of life, with thirty plus behind the wheel of a truck roaming the lower 48 States and all Provinces of the beautiful country of Canada. These are just a few thoughts, don’t mean that I agree with any or all of them, how about you?

  1. Being I don’t care anything for the game of Hockey: That must mean that I am anti-Canadian, right?
  2. I really don’t care anything for the sport of Basketball: So you know, I’m prejudice toward tall folks.
  3. I don’t care anything about Horse Racing: That means I must be anti-short people.
  4. I really don’t care much about Car Racing: Does this mean I’m anti-Hill Billy?
  5. I care nothing about the game of Soccer: So, that means I gotta be anti-rest of the world, right?

 

I am anti violence, what does that make me? A target, a patsy? Only a fool breaks into another man’s house to see if they will be carried out.

I am anti-hate, anti-racist, what does this make a person? Does this make one naive, or, maybe more Christ like?

If one is anti-Democrat does it then make them minorities and poor folk haters? Maybe a person just can’t personally back a ‘Party’ who is responsible for the death of millions of babies each year!

Of course if one is anti-Republican it must mean you hate grumpy, old, rich, white guys? Isn’t self-absorbed politicians of our time, whether they are Republican or Democrat enough to make the “system’ puke out a 3rd, 4th, or even 5th ‘Party’?

Bernie or Trump, these two ends don’t attract each other, yet millions flocked to them, for what, hope?

Anti-Islamic terrorism ideals are not anti-Muslim or anti-Persian, to not be so is, anti-humanity and anti-God!

What can people do when you are hated by millions? Do you let them stay and kill you? Do you physically remove them from your living area? Do you let them stay and you also stay and try to live with them, or maybe convert them?

Like I said at the beginning this article like most of my articles are for the reason of creating thought, hopefully among many, hopefully thoughts of caring about each other when possible, hopefully eliminating hate some day.

My 30 Day Challenge To Hamas And President Abbas: Demand 100% Stop To All Violence

 

I have a theory that I would like to see Hamas and the people of the Gaza Strip along with the leadership of President Abbas of the West Bank and the residents of your communities to try a 30 day total peace with Israel in every venue. I ask all the people of Israels neighbors, 30 days, please. A total stop to all forms of violence toward the State of Israel and toward any of their people for 30 days. What in effect that I am saying is ‘prove to the whole world’ that you only wish to be a non-violent neighbor of Israel, not Her enemy, prove it. The appropriate next question I think is “What about Israel”?

 

This same demand would then also be made of all the leaders of Israel and to all the citizens of Israel, prove you really just want to have peace with your Palestinian neighbors who live among you as well as all the residents in the Gaza Strip and in the West Bank. Prove it by committing no violence for a set 30 day truce. Neighbors, do not let your friends or neighbors commit these sins, prove you want peace.

 

Most people will say this will never happen and they will give many reasons, some good ones, some not so good. But now I bring up another question to you, the question of, what if? Just for the grins of it, dream that this 30 day, totally sanctioned peace occurred, now what? If you can control your hatred enough to allow a real peace in all of your lives for 30 consecutive days, then you have proven you can control yourself so now continue living in peace the rest of your days and of the days of your children and their children’s days.

 

To me Israel and the Palestinian people already have a Three State System if all the violence would stop between each other. Hamas Leaders, you have the easy choice of letting all of your people live in total peace from Israel, a major lifting of embargo’s against you and your people, and, you could end up with your own state. Or should the Gaza Strip and the West Bank be considered separate Palestinian States now? There can never be such a thing as a Palestinian State as long as they are proving themselves to be ‘far less than’ civil neighbors to Israel, Egypt, and the rest of the Middle-East.

Do Young Black Americans Care About The Things Doctor MLK Taught?

Do Young Black Americans Care About The Things Doctor MLK Taught?

 

We here some these days about a so-called ‘angry white men’ generation that we are all coexisting in. Out side of angry black folks, usually under fifty years of age, I don’t recall hearing it outside of the media and their talking heads. Aren’t you as an individual person a bit tired of being told what we are and what we think by the media and the politicians? It does appear to me that by what we get to see and hear from the media is that the current world we are living in here in America is one where the slogan ‘angry black folks’ would be more correct. I never condone violence but anger is another issue all together. Doctor King did not condone violence either yet how could he and God Himself not be angered at the conditions of how non-whites were treated here in America, especially here in the South? Did black people of the 1960’s get treated as less than equals by white American? By what I have seen on film and read in books the horrible history of our Country is that it was pathetic how some folks treated others. Are things anywhere near that bad for black Americans today? Personally I believe that the correct answer is, not close. But do black folks get treated as less than equal in some people’s eyes yet today? Of course some do, by some, but absolutely not all. Black Americans just like all Americans have the right to voice their displeasure at the high crime rates and the lack of survivable income level jobs. If you as a person, black or not, believe that your group, race related or not, is being treated unfairly we all have the right to get mad yell, scream, holler and march all that we want to, and we have the right to vote. What we do not have the right to do is to be violent, to do harm to another person or another’s property. You Cops out there, the same goes for you. No one has the right to be the aggressor. Today a person gets called a white bigot for ‘their racist’ views. Yet if a person actually listens to the words that came out of Doctor Kings mouth, was he not saying the same things? Was Doctor King a white bigot? Personally I do not believe that Doctor King was any type of bigot. Personally I believe that Doctor King was an excellent human being. In my opinion I believe that he was an excellent Christian Minister. Do I believe that he had human flaws, yes, of course he did. Did Doctor King preach for or condone any violence, not that I have heard, seen, or read. Yet he did speak reality when it came to violence. Even in his famous “I Have A Dream’ speech he spoke of up coming violence if white America did not change their ways toward other races. He did not condone that violence yet he was being a realist about it.

 

I am a white male, I spent almost all of my adult life between 1981 and 2013 behind the wheel of a tractor-trailer unit driving all over the lower 48 U.S. States and all the Provinces of Canada. I came across a lot of Police during that time, to the best of my memory I never had any trouble with any black Cops nor any Oriental Cops. The majority of Cops that I had interaction with were white males. Of the white female Cops I had interaction with I would have to say that at least half were what I would have to call ‘smart asses’. Of the white males I would have to say about 10% were also smart asses. Mostly I chalked their attitudes up to being immature punks. Hispanic Cops, I would say about 1/3 were the same. American Indian Cops, at least 2/3 were the same, arrogant punks. What I counted their actions up to was that when they seen me they just expected me to be racist because I was a white guy, personally I found that to be a sad reality. I never ever was anything but kind and mellow toward Officers because I knew the power they had in their hands to ruin my life, or even to end it if they so chose to. Of the times Officers acted like punks toward me, how many was because of race, I don’t know? How many were just punks, I don’t know that answer either. I do know that maturity is an issue that every Police Department in the Country needs to address constantly, but, so does every industry in the world. When you are wearing a uniform and you choose to act like an ass, it just gets more people’s attention. Just like if you are driving a big truck, if you drive like a moron, more people notice your stupidity, you show up more.

 

Is there still racism in America, unfortunately that answer is yes. Is it in every race, yes. Is there violence in every race, yes. Here in America it seems like the Media always pounces on the cases when a White Police Officer beats up or kills a Black person yet they seem to pretty much ignore when a Black Police Officer does the same to a person of any other race. To me, all of these aggression’s should be a front page news story, they are all wrong, they should never ever happen. Yet here is the tie in with this articles main concept with the teachings of Doctor Martin Luther King. What I have notice in at least 80% of the cases when a video pops up of a White Officer being aggressive with  a Black citizen what the video constantly shows is the Black person almost never ever simply doing what they are told to do by the Officer. I don’t remember which Black Police Chief that said on camera a couple of years ago to the citizens after Officers had killed someone they were trying to arrest, he used a great common sense statement, he said “comply and stay alive”. What video’s have shown over and over again, Black suspects being aggressive and refusing to comply with Officers orders. Would Doctor King condone these killings, of course not. Would he condone people being aggressive toward the Officers and not following the commands of the Officers, of course not. What I have said/taught to my Son who is 25 now and he is on the Autism Spectrum, any time you are in contact with a Police Officer this Officer has the ability to ruin the rest of your life, the ability to beat the hell out of you even if you are being totally nice to them, or this Officer has the ability to end your life right there where you are at. So, I have taught him to always be nice and always obey them, at once, do not argue, just do what you are told. This goes even if you believe that you are totally right and they are totally wrong, obey at once and keep your mouth shut unless they ask you a question.

 

This articles headline speaks to young Black folks and their caring or not caring about the teaching of Doctor King, there is a reason for me choosing young Black folks for this title. What I noticed throughout my travels and what I have seen of TV screens throughout the years is the ‘culture’ of young folks being, acting, out as ‘gangster’. Is this just part of the ‘Hip Hop’ culture? Folks, I’m no Genius, I don’t know the answers to all that ails us as a human race. I just want peace and kindness for all, toward all. I try my best to look at all things from the eyes, the teachings of God. All this violence, this hate, this lack of love, of caring for each other is sickening to my heart and Soul, just as it was to the heart and Soul of Doctor King and just as it is to the heart and Soul of God. Will we as a people ever change?
