Let’s get started with a few thoughts and pictures:
I am not a racist. I do not believe that any one race is superior to another. I also don’t care what race, sex, gender or religion you are; no one deserves to be discriminated against. A person also does not deserve any special privileges depending on what race, gender, sexual preference, or religion they may be. I also do not believe that anyone should enjoy special “privileges” in getting a leg up on any other race or group to equalize a perceived “social injustice.” – Tom Roland, “What Lives Matter?”
The political agenda of this Administration has been one of division, not unity. The election of Barack Obama to this nation’s highest office with the expectation of uniting this country from a racial standpoint has been a woeful disappointment.
Every time that there has been an incident of where a white (or white-Hispanic) person or police officer has killed a black person (often while committing a criminal act), the President has rushed to defending said black person without allowing the investigation process to be completed, often indirectly blaming the police officer. Now when a police officer has been killed (eight within the past week alone), the President has said NOTHING! When a white person has been killed by a black person or illegal immigrant, the President has also said NOTHING! When blacks kill blacks in an almost daily occurrence in our large cities like Chicago and Detroit, the President says NOTHING! Worse, when riots and protests erupt demanding the prosecution and conviction of said police officers or white people, the President says NOTHING!
The result is that the police have been withdrawing from putting themselves on the line. In cities like Baltimore and Ferguson, crime is up and arrests are down. Why should police officers put themselves in potentially dangerous situations that could require them to defend themselves? Let’s remember something:
The Black Lives Matter crowd and Farrakhan’s Nation of Islam have called for a war against police and white people. We have seen what appear to be executions of various police officers, and black against white crimes have increased. What does the President have to say about these obviously racially motivated statements and actions? NOTHING!!
We do not have a leader in the White House. This has been proven in both domestic and international issues. We have a pretender, a person who believes his own hype and ego, and is interested only in the perks of the office & what havoc he can inflict upon the country.
America, we chose poorly…
