Trayvon Martin was a 17 year old, BLACK Child that was gunned down by George Zimmerman , a Hispanic man, because Trayvon was BLACK at the wrong time. Morning Joe Panel Discusses Trayvon Martin Case
My blog is about how I see the world and what is going on in it from MY perspective. Be prepared for controversial thoughts and verbiage, I'm just giving it to you how I see and understand it.
Did YOU see how stunning Viola Davis looked as she strutted down the red carpet, with her gorgeous dress, sexy husband and that amazing N-A-T-U-R-A-L hair?! She was breath-taking, but it baffles me that it took her decades to climb from behind the weave; the hair that allows you to become acceptable in the eyes of the majority.
Police officers are the worst breakers of the law; SERIOUSLY! Here is a short list of things I’ve seen officers do to break the law: run red lights, speed thru neighborhoods, put on sirens in order to not wait at red lights, jay walk, racial profiling, ignore cases that seem to tiny for their attention, etc….
Colorful weave. Long, acrylic nails. Gold teeth. Colorful cars with spinning rims. Designs cut into a haircut. Dilapidated houses. Dirty streets. High crime. Poor people. Over-crowded neighborhoods. When you look at everything I’ve listed, what words come to mind? When I asked a friend of mine about phrases similar to the ones I’ve listed, he instantly said that those terms are associated with being GHETTO, HOOD and/or RATCHET. Some might say those descriptions are what we’d associate with someone who is black or African-American, but why?
Why must black people continuously seek approval from white people? I've heard over and over again black men and women stating this phrase, "You're making US look bad." As I shake my head at the ignorance of my fellow black people, I can only help but wonder how many of us feel this way.
Honestly, I'm guilty of it, which is the reason for this piece. This morning I found myself thinking this same thing about a fellow, black co-worker of mine. This person comes to work late everyday they're scheduled, they check their social site notifications before touching work and if they aren't asked to complete a task, they will watch movies all day. Fortunately, our supervisor is driven by guilt, so she would feel guilty if she fired this individual and they couldn't afford to purchase food; but enough is enough, don't you think?
