Blatant acts of racism have got to stop. It’s time that we stop saying that it is just a coincidence.
So I’m sitting at work scrolling through blogs and the news when I come across this article:
Now the reason I’m upset is because, once again, another black man is imprisoned for no damn reason. Did he break the law? Yup. That’s why you give him that traffic ticket like you should. He could have carried on with the night mad that he must pay a ticket. BUT TO LOCK HIM IN JAIL OVERNIGHT?! AFTER he passed the breathalyzer test?! I’ve had it.
I’VE HAD IT.
It is just so frustrating to be guilty of everything in life because of the color of your skin. The blessing is that with all of the technology, the unfair treatment is coming to light. The amount of videos that flood Twitter and Facebook of minorities being abused by police is sickening. The problem is that noise is being made and no one is listening. This unjust treatment continues and minorities are just supposed to bear it.
The writers of this blog are both successful, masters degree holding, law-abiding gentlemen that would like to exist without being bothered. We would like to listen to Partition as loud as possible. Sometimes, a late night craving for Taco Bell calls and we need to get a Chalupa. CAN WE DO SO WITHOUT RISKING ARREST?! No I’m not bashing the police by any means. There are some TERRIBLE people out there and without the police, we would not be protected. However, can they worry about finding those actual CRIMINALS and leave me and my late cravings ALONE?! Damn.
