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

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

(I wrote this on September 26th of 2016)

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 have been eye-witness to such type of 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.

 

Race is a big issue on these shootings because of the media trying to sell airtime and news papers. 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 shoot 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’s 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. Most likely 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 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 us. 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, to you? 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?

Racists Black Members Of The American Military: West Point Graduation Photo

 

A few days ago a picture was released of the first 16 black women to graduate from Americas best know military college at West Point. What these 16 women chose to do is absolutely not except-able for any military personnel especially for any Officer and upon their graduation they are awarded with the rank of 2-LT. These 16 people chose to show their “blackness” to the world and this action is nothing but racist. They all chose to have their graduation picture taken with their clenched fist salute to ‘black power’. This type of action is no different from if white Officers gave the Nazi salute or decided to wear white hoods for the picture. As a former service connected disabled soldier I take great offence to such racism in the ranks. This is something that the military can not tolerate especially among their officers. I totally feel and believe that the Army absolutely must right now discharge these 16 racists with ‘undesirable’ discharges. The Army must do this right now to make an example of them for the sake of the military as a whole. A huge part of being an Officer is the respect factor and I do not know of anyone who has served our country in the armed forces that has any respect for a racist being among them. I have no doubt that if the Army decides to take the cowards way out of this situation and not discharge these racist right now and any of them find their way into a combat unit they will be executed the first day they are in a combat situation. Respect, these racist 16 have no place in our military and the “Brass” had better grow a set of balls and do their job which includes getting these racists out of the ranks right now. If the ‘Brass’ does not do this then they have tainted the institution of West Point beyond repair as well as the reputation of the ‘Officer Class’. Why would anyone ever volunteer to serve in an Army that has racist trash as their commanders?

Why It Is Okay To Own Slaves: (Not Really)

 

Professional writers say that on a blog post people need to use a title that gets people’s attention so that they will stop browsing mail titles and stop and read yours. Hopefully you are not a person that believes it is okay to own another person. But, there in lies a point that in some people’s minds makes it okay to buy, sale, and trade in human flesh. I have learned in my years of travels that some people don’t really believe that other people are really actually human beings. Sounds rather ignorant doesn’t it? But I have learned in my time that God has given me that some people do believe that any other “Being” that is not of their own skin color, or religion, or even nationality, do not have Souls, that others are not really human beings with a Soul like unto their own race, religion, ….

 

Here in America most people would probably say that actual slaves do not exist in our country because it is illegal. Some people are naive, some people choose not to see, many choose to bury their own heads inside their own  so that they do not have to bear witness to the evil of the real world around us. I am very glad that in our country legal slavery has been abolished way before my lifetime but that plague still simmer here among us. Like in most cases in our world if you wish to see truth, follow the money, follow the ego’s, follow the hate.

 

When I was much younger I used to wonder how it was possible for human beings to do the horrible things they do to each other. How could a race of people justify to their God their own actions of bull whipping, raping, torturing, enslaving, and killing of other people. How could the English justify their actions toward the Irish people or the Indian, African, or even the Jewish? How could the European people come to another country like the Colonies and justify removing the Native populations? How did Americans justify removing the Mexican populations of the west and southwest? How did parts of a nation believe in the African slave trade to be exceptionable? Evil, Demonic hearts, hater filled, egotistical, greed filled souls? Yes is my belief to those questions.

 

Slavery has existed since man crawled out of their caves with the intent to take by any means necessary that which others possessed. To the most powerful goes the gains which others labored for, including their bodies. Why should the land owner, the governor, or the King pay for what they can get for free? When Europeans came to the Americas the wealthy purchased the law and the land just as they had in Europe. Still, someone had to do the work for them and why pay for that which you can take for free? First they tried to enslave the Native Indians but they knew the lay of the lands and they simply ran away. Then, came the indentured poor white folks who for the price of their ticket to the New World worked as a slave for usually about seven years for the Land Lords to earn their freedom. This wasn’t working all that well either so then came the enslavement of captured Africans who were to never be freed, ever. Most all enslavement’s of humans have always been about the rich owning the poor, this disgrace of enslaving the Africans is the only time in recorded history that I have ever come across that was totally color based.

 

I learned the answer to my question of how people could justify to themselves their actions against others, people who were different in some way than they themselves. I learned this answer in 1978 when I started going to a church in a small southern town in which I was told by the preacher that the people there (in that congregation) did not believe that non-whites had Souls. You read that correctly, this to his credit was the fact that made him turn in his notice to them that he was quitting as their Pastor. That moment in time was when the light, the answer to how came to light for me. How sickening that mind-set, how evil.

 

The U.N. recently stated that they believe that about 9 million people world-wide are living in slavery. They say that most of these slaves are in North Africa, the Middle East, and in Asia, most, but not all. Where there is not the heart, belief, and faith of ever human being’s being equals, there will be slavery. Where there is the heart of pure greed, there will be slavery, thievery, and unjust imprisonment. When a poor person is willing and able to work for their food and shelter they should be able to afford more than slop and a cardboard box. One simple example I will use is the case of the employees of a large/huge company cannot obtain full-time positions and a livable wage and company provided insurances for their families while the owners of the company increases their wealth by billions every year. Livable wage is a subjective term, to some a livable wage is defined as “if they are still breathing” then I am “giving” “these people” enough of “my” money. “Why should one pay for what they can get for free, or at least as little as possible”? Simple math, the smaller amount I have to give to “these people” the more I get to keep for myself. Ego, greed, evil, yes they are all bred into the Devils servants. Here in America we hear about the evil of the top 1%, the worst evil lies in the top 1/1000 of this 1% club. Is there slavery in our world today? You decide for yourself, what do you “see”?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is Black American ‘Culture’ Black Peoples Biggest Problem With Police?

Is Black American ‘Culture’ Black Peoples Biggest Problem With Police?

 

 

I know that throughout the history of the human race that there have been issues with race that has spawned violence and hatred one toward another. Here in America some people tend to even hate people because of the accent they speak with even if they have the same skin color. Some folks here in their limited knowledge are still fighting the Civil war in their own minds. Today’s note to you is not centered on racism of black people toward everyone else nor other races toward black folks, it is about today’s black culture issues though.

 

 

To the layman at street level who has logged about five-million miles traveling over the lower 48 States and Canada I have been a witness to how people at ground level act toward issues and toward others all over the country during a span of over thirty years. I know that race issues cannot be completely taken out of how cultures feel they are or have been treated by other cultures, I guess it is a taught DNA, sort of.  I am a conservative/moderate Christian white guy from the south-east United States who is a person who thinks that brown skin is actually the prettiest (why do white folks lay out in the sun for and go to tanning booths for, to turn the white skin brown). Really what it comes down to is that I really don’t care what your outside is. I do tend to judge from what comes out of the mouth and heart of a person though, human flaw I guess, any judging is, but I like you am only a human. I err often, but at least I try not to. I try to look at life from the spiritual view of Christian Scriptures yet I often fail at that. I am not trying to judge anyone with this note today, I am asking each of us to think about the issues I am bringing up here and to consider the thoughts, the suggestions, that all. This is a note just trying to get us to consider how we “can just all get long”.

 

I know that I have heard many times throughout the country black Americans, mostly males though talking ‘smack/ignorance’ about how the worst of behaviors like constant in your face vulgar language and walking around holding their version of manhood, or treating all women like whores and the unwillingness to work for a living as just part of their culture. Like the black lady Congressman from Watts CA who after the riots there after the Rodney King verdict referred to all of that rioting, violence, store break-ins as not really a crime being committed, just culture?

 

It is no secret in the Hispanic, Asian or White communities or in the Black communities that the uneducated act the most ignorant toward each other in general.  The Black people as a race must push education for their own people. What is the dropout rate among black teenagers compared to the other races here in America? What is the unemployment rate among black youth and black males in general? What is the rate of black youth compared to other races having spent time in the penal system? What is the poverty rate differences? What is the rate of violence by black people, mainly males, toward other black folks, white folks, ect? It is no secret the ignorance of the ‘gangster’ in your face ignorance of the young people in this country causes constant conflicts. One evening at a business (in Albany Georgia) I frequented I came in on a different shift and there were two thirty-ish black women working behind the counter. They waited on the thirty-ish year old black man in line in front of me, after he left they made mention of the BMW that just left. I looked out the window and noticed that he got into a Ford and the girls seen that I had a bit of a question on my face so they explained that BMW that they were speaking of was ‘black man who works’. They explained a few things to me, they said that around there that almost all of the single black men either ran drugs or whores, very few would actually work for a living that they were always looking for some woman to lay in on. Education, morals, non-aggression, faith in a loving God, importance of families with the dads in the household, these are taught things, they are learned, just like good habits are taught and learned. The black communities in America as a whole is horribly failing their own people. Another one of these two black ladies jokes was “how do you starve a black man to death, answer, hide his food stamps under his work boots, ouch”!

 

These so-called black ministers who have made personal million’s by always going around preaching hate and discontent would instead preach and teach as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr did during his life time many more black people and other people would be alive today. When a person comes into contact with a group of people, a race of people, and that person time and time again when they come into this contact are having trouble with this particular race or culture of people, they are going to get fed up with it, this in your face mentality.  A very good example of this can be shown in basic human nature. I as a former lifelong over the road truck driver knows that some police officer in general are crooked as a dogs hind leg that’s been broken a dozen times, but most are not that way. If you are a police officer and you see a certain trucking companies trucks several times a day and this companies drivers think they are all cowboys and don’t have to obey the laws like everyone else. Let’s say every time you pull over one of them that they are stoned or drunk then you as a human being may well stop these trucks at their slightest infraction when another truck traveling with it wasn’t pulled. What if every time you as a cop pull over a tractor-trailer unit that the driver of almost every truck gets out being mouthy with the cop and refusing to obey the cops’ directives, what kind of attitude do you think any human being would get toward all truck drivers and trucking in general? The same exact thing happens with a lot of police officers when they encounter belligerent people who time and time again are of one race, nationality, gender, age group etc.

 

What I am saying is that here in America the Black community has got to as a whole look inside their own actions, their own culture, to see if we by our own personal actions and those of our families, communities, churches are making problems worse with society as a whole and /or with the police in general. Every culture faces these same questions, what actions by people are okay in a civil society and which just cause conflict. There is no doubt that police departments around the globe have officers who are less than stable, less than decent, less than honest, less than mature, thugs, etc. This is a constant issue for every department everywhere and not just police departments, warehousing, offices, factories, etc. Race, morals, violence, these are all personal issues and until we decide to quit blaming others for things that they had nothing to do with, then our own personal experiences will be unpleasant at times, especially when we are having a face to face meeting with Police Officers. Everyone on the planet needs to understand that if you have any encounter with any Police Officer anywhere, that if that Officer happens to be dirty, he can mess up the rest of your life, or end it. So when we encounter an Officer during our day simply always be kind and decent to them and do obey their orders to limit the opportunity for a moron to show you how big a moron he can become. O, and always hope for dash cams and Officer Body Cameras, for everyone’s sake, to protect the civilian and to protect the Officer from lies being leveled against each other.

That moment in time was when the light, the answer of how, came to light for me. How sickening that mind-set, how evil.

 

The U.N. recently stated that they believe that about 9 million people world-wide are living in slavery. They say that most of these slaves are in North Africa, the Middle East, and in Asia, most, but not all. Where there is not the heart, belief, and faith of every human being’s being equals, there will be slavery. Where there is the heart of pure greed, there will be slavery, thievery, and unjust imprisonment. When a poor person is willing and able to work for their food and shelter they should be able to afford more than slop and a cardboard box. One simple example I will use is the case of the employees of a large/huge company whom cannot obtain full-time positions and a livable wage and company provided insurances for their families while the owners of the company increases their wealth by billions every year. Livable wage is a subjective term, to some a livable wage is defined as “if they are still breathing” then I am “giving” “these people” enough of “my” money. “Why should one pay for what they can get for free, or at least as little as possible”? Simple math, the smaller amount I have to give to “these people” the more I get to keep for myself. Ego, greed, evil, yes they are all bred into the Devils servants. Here in America we hear about the evil of the top 1%, the worst evil lies in the top 1/1000 of this 1% club. Is there slavery in our world today? You decide for yourself, what do you “see”?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Comments Resulting From Yahoo Article About A Rash of Middle-East Suicide Bombings

  • On Sunday October 27th, 2013 I read an article on my Yahoo home page about a rash of recent car bombings and suicide bombings in the Middle-East. At the bottom of the page as you probably know, there is a space where you can make a comment if you wish to. I am now going to show you what I said in my comment. It will be word for word so that nothing can be taken out of context. Now it is up to you to think whatever you wish. After I read this gentleman’s response I then answered him back what I think of his comment. I do not ever try to do a tit-for-tat because I think that is a childish response to anything, I just try the best that I know how to just be honest in what I write.
    I wrote,—“The most violent religion on earth, it is really sad that a person can convince themselves that God wants them to commit suicide and murder. If God wants people killed, God is completely capable of doing it Himself. He does not need anyone’s help. If a person says to himself that the Deity that he is serving as God is telling them to go out into the world and maim and kill, then it is not God who he is listening to, it is Satan, not God”.
    Anthony C. wrote me back the following, again word for word.—“It was Christian white folks that oppressed and enslaved the black africans, and with their corrupt doctrine of a bible that support the oppression and killing of slaves. you have killed over 8million indians to make your U.S.A..just like you now killed and miss place and murder over 4million Palestinians and jews to make a dirty and un-holy state called israel with over 50,000 gays and lesbians, all in the name of christianity”.
    Now, this last part is my response to Anthony C.

    Anthony, on some of the history items you mentioned you are correct or at least close to correct but on some things you may be a bit amiss. It is obvious that you are doing some of your comments from a hate filled view, so, if you don’t mind too much I will go down your list. Yes it is true that a lot of wealthy white folks of times past had and traded in slaves, scripture does not say that slavery is wrong as it was an accepted fact it that time era. Slavery is something that I personally think is horrible. In the (new world) rich folks tried enslaving pretty much everyone to work on their plantations ect but the poor whites and the Indian people would  run away asap. This is when it was decided by these rich white folks to import Africans to do their work for them because if they tried to run away they didn’t have any place they could blend into and it was thought that the African slaves could physically handle the heat and the hard work. This was the first time that a people were enslaved by being a certain race, which at least in my thoughts is horrible. I have learned through much reading that the biggest slave market in the world today is in the Islamic world and still of mostly black people from northern Africa. There is also horrible systems set up like in China and India with their Caste system, it is horrible how humans treat each other.
    Christianity has never ever okay’ed the beating or killing of anyone, ever. The people who call themselves Christians and act in these manners will see very plainly what Hell is like. Bible doctrine does not give anyone the right to harm or kill. The Crusades of the Catholic church of many hundreds of years ago were evil, Popes who ordered these military events were evil to the point of Demonic. These did kill many, many thousands of people and the blood of these people will be put upon these so called Christian leaders who did those acts.
    Now the Indian event you speak of Anthony, yes it is a horrible truth that most of the Europeans that came to the Americas considered people who were not white as being savages, soulless, and even non humans. This is how they were able to justify to themselves taking/stealing the land of these “savages” and in killing them if they fought back. In our southwest we have a state called New Mexico that has the largest Indian reservation in our country, it is of the Navajo people. In America some peoples yell loudly about how badly they were treated in time past, and most certainly they have the right and the grounds to do so, but by far the People who were treated the worst by the so called Christian white man are the Indian people of our country.
    Here now is a point that by the tone of your hatred you will not like or except. If the American Indian people decided to stage a revolt today in this time era and by force took back all the land of even one state, like New Mexico, would it be okay for the rest of our countries people to bitch and complain about those Indians stealing OUR land? That rings of total stupidity doesn’t it. After all, it was their land that we stole from them correct? Very hypocritical of the non-Indian people to think or act as if the Indian people stole our land?
    Here is the point I know you won’t like. There was a world before 632 A.D. The Jewish people were on the land that belonged to the nation of Israel for about 1,700 years before Muhammad was even born. Muhammad and his armies invaded, stole, and murdered their way through many regional nations including Palestine.
    In 1948 a small sliver of the land that belongs to the nation of Israel was forcibly taken back by their rightful owners. The Arab nations in the middle east still possess about 99% of all the land, if the Muslim people of the middle east wanted to they could have easily assimilated the Palestinian people into their culture, Jordan tried for awhile but even they threw them out. There could easily be peace in the Holy Land but both sides have to want peace and the Palestinian leadership and military wings will not tolerate peace with Israel. And in regards to the gay and lesbian stupidity, the Bible does not okay these actions, the Bible is strongly against such things, so saying this STUFF about “in the name of Christianity”, you don’t even have a clue what you are talking about, your hatred precedes the activation of your knowledge, if you actually have any.

    Now folks, it’s your turn, what do you think? Was I to harsh?—Goodnight and I hope and pray that God will bless and keep you and all of your loved ones safe in this hatefilled world.

    Sincerly,

    ted
