Guys! I’m back. I haven’t done one of these in a while. I’ve been pretty busy getting all A’s in school. Being on the last leg of my first year of graduate school and maintaining a 4.0 GPA takes an immense amount of concentration. Not to mention my son is now 2 and demands a ton of attention. Then, there is the occasional “me time”(which doesn’t happen often) where I would like to turn the world off and try to digest what’s going on. I’m mentally and emotionally exhausted though, which has made me physically exhausted just trying to accomplish that alone. I could handle being “busy” no problem but the world is on fire folks and you are all burning in front of me. I’ve been trying to put some of you out but you ignorant asses love to roll around in gasoline and play with matches. I am not responsible for what you like when you’re done fucking yourself up and over.

With that said, I would like to welcome you to the Diary of a Madman. Buckle up bitches, I’m about to piss you mother fuckers off. this post isn’t the squeaky clean “guys lets all love each other” blog that the first was. Don’t get me wrong I stand by my beliefs and I stand by the principles of inalienable human rights and all the other jazz I was talking about but you guys….. holy shit, you have got to be fucking kidding me. I mean you ARE kidding me, right? Shit, I don’t even know where to start.
oppression, racism, discrimination, racial profiling in community policing, and the white privilege connection
Do I have your attention? I hope so. WHITE people! What the fuck man? You are making me look really fucking bad and its pissing me off. Some of you are very close friends of mine, others are acquaintances or people I used to have respect for. And regardless of your plain racist ignorance, I still like you. Most of you. Why? Because you can do so much to help accomplish change and do much better for the world helping me advocate for human rights in the fight against systemic and institutionalized racism and social inequality instead of working against me by being some racist tool bag with a shitty selfish opinion about race relations. Some of you don’t even know or refuse to become aware that you are being racist. You have no concept of whitesplaining and racism or how you are connected to the problem because of the ignorant shit you have the balls to say on social media. None of you have any idea about the concept of how privileged you are. Some of you work in the military, are police officers, or work in education. How the fuck did you climb that ladder so high to actually obtain careers with your heads in your asses? Seriously though, I mull around on social media. I see your tweets, I see your comments and your posts. I see you making excuses for bad police officers doing bad things. NEWS FLASH we have a serious fucking problem with white police officers shooting black people. End of story. Don’t debate that shit with me either, or try and you will lose the argument quicker than you can start your tirade of finger banging a response on your keyboard or phone all while shedding tears over your American flag that was made in Mexico because you felt disrespected that someone at a sporting event didn’t stand for the national anthem and salute the flag…..
Okay woah! I’m sorry we’ll tackle all this one topic at a time. Get the box of tissues though cause I will make you little bitches cry. #sorrynotsorry
So community policing and the Black community… we can’t even say the Black community anymore cause it seems just being black is a death sentence no matter where you are these days. Look, let’s get a couple of things straight. I am a white guy, I am very well aware of who I am, what I look like and the unfortunate privilege I am awarded just for being white that others of color and culture are not even considered. By the time you have finished reading this from start to finish and you still don’t think you are white and privileged or contributing to the problem (don’t worry you snooty ass minority individuals [who think they have one foot in each community] I will address you too) then I have absolutely no hope for you and you are beyond help and will continue to contribute to the problem. YOU are the problem.
Look I will never know what it is like to be afraid of the possibility I may lose my life when confronted by a police officer, neither will you. What I do know is that I have been called a traitor to my race, and been accused of perpetuating a problem that has existed for longer than I’ve had breath to draw in my lungs by attempting to bring awareness the disgusting nature of social inequality and injustice. I’ve been verbally attacked and threatened for speaking out on social media. I’ve been confronted by other white people who can’t stomach the truth about their ridiculous racist views and the only thing they prove is themselves stupid and unwilling to listen to the facts about what is really going on out there.
Look, I grew up in an urban environment and lets face it anybody living in the ghetto is oppressed but when I got out I wasn’t oppressed anymore, some of my other friends who also got out still sadly experience discrimination. Those who are still there don’t have it any better. That’s the difference between knowing where you stand and being naïve to believe that you earned your bragging rights through hard work. I fear for my friends and you know if I call you a friend whether we speak every now and again or we speak every day that I care for you deeply. That’s just my nature. Some of you guys though also know it means I won’t put up with your bullshit and have no problem calling you out on it.
I’ll give you a prime example of what I’m talking about in terms of the difference in experiences in police encounters based on the color of your skin. In 2004 on one Friday night during the summer I was pulled over doing 60mph down 11th Ave in Paterson. I lived on the corner of East 25th in a basement apartment in Paterson, N.J. at the time. I didn’t pull over immediately instead going an additional three blocks before I stopped. I pulled into the driveway of the house I lived in. Mind you this was a two car driveway with four cars in it already. So I’m basically parked diagonally in the street over the side walk. I don’t even wait to get approached. I got out the car and approached the passenger door of the police cruiser with my license and registration in hand. It wasn’t even my car. The car was registered in North Carolina and I had a Pennsylvania driver’s license living in New Jersey. I was the designated driver that night so I took my friend’s car home because she was too drunk to drive and we all had work in the morning. Two white police officers ask me if I knew why they had their lights on and pulled me over and I said I think I might have been speeding. One cop says, “no shit you were speeding”. I knew exactly how fast I was going. I explained I was tired, that I was the designated driver that night for my friends and had work early in the morning and that I lived right there and pointed to the house on the corner. He gave me back the registration and insurance card without checking to see if the car was stolen or running the plate period gave me back my license and told me get some sleep and have a nice night. The officer in the driver’s seat gave me some advice, he said, “when you get pulled over, don’t ever get out of the car like that again, especially around here. If you were anyone else this would have all ended differently”. I got the hint and I’m sure you do to. They didn’t frisk me, they didn’t even try to determine if my story was a lie or not, they didn’t run my license, and for all they know I could have had drugs and weapons in the car, maybe a dead body and didn’t really live in that house because nobody who didn’t know I lived there would have ever believed that I lived there. White people don’t willingly live in the hood. I did. Paterson was my home though, where I was born and raised. But I was left to go about my business because of the privilege of being white. Do you understand now?
So let’s be honest okay, the police are killing black people during incidents that should simply be routine. Stop, investigate, question and possibly detain and then arrest or ticket and send them on their way back to their families. Why is that so hard to master all of the sudden? It is easy to accomplish for certain other (white) peoples, like in my experience.
Before you start with your straight up stupid excuses let’s try an exercise to help you with your anxiety, because I know I have already hit a couple triggers harder than a head on collision and you may be disoriented.
Ready. Calm yourself. Relax. I’m being serious. I swear to you I am not being condescending. Think of a peaceful place you have either already been to, maybe have always wanted to go to, or imagined that could absolutely relax you. Are you there? Think of an activity, or a setting. You’re sitting under a tree, there’s a warm spring air and a cool breeze. You’re surrounded by the sounds of chirping birds in a forest and the tree you are sitting under is next to a babbling brook. Maybe it’s the crackle of a fire place and the sweet smell of hot chocolate under your nose as the snow falls pleasantly outside a scenic window overlooking a mountain. Are you possibly at an empty beach surrounded by loved ones enjoying the sounds of gentle waves crashing against the shore? Your children are laughing and playing under the hot sun and cooled by a gentle ocean breeze all while having an extravagant summer meal prepared for you and yours. Did you see that out there close to the shore? It’s a pod of dolphins playing in the light surf. Imagine an autumn landscape. The peaceful diversity of the changing colors of the leaves on the trees. You’re staring up at the sky as the clouds pass by and you’re imagining what shapes they are forming. I feel better already. Do you? You should.
Let’s get through this with facts first. Leave your emotions and personal feelings aside while we discuss the part you play in the current state of our country and how you could change things for the better. I think we first have to address the idea of privilege. White privilege (or white skin privilege) is a term for societal privileges that benefit people identified as white in Western countries, beyond what is commonly experienced by non-white people under the same social, political, or economic circumstances (Wikipedia). Some of you think privilege is simply being wealthy and we have to dispel that myth right now that while yes the wealthy are privy to a certain lifestyle awarded by an amassed amount of wealth as they can afford it, their being rich and your being either struggling middle class or poor does not mean you know what it is like to be oppressed or discriminated against or that they are simply privileged while you are not. Just being white makes you privileged. You have opportunities and considerations when dealing in all sectors of society that other minority communities do not have. Jobs, promotions, pay, legal matters, encounters with the police, etc. You can’t deny it either just because you’re naïve to the truth. I am your awakening. Don’t tell me “everybody has the same opportunities, that you simply just have to work hard for them and that black people are lazy and uneducated, thugs and criminals”. I will tell you “that isn’t true about all black people that all people regardless of race or culture can fit the criteria to define those personality attributes to a T”. You’ll say “well not all police officers are bad”. And I will then shock you with “then if that’s what you believe why don’t you agree with the country taking in Syrian refugees attempting to escape the horrors of a very brutal and seemingly never ending nightmare that is their civil war”? Not all Syrians are bad. I mean you’ll most likely be reading this blog on a mobile device invented by the offspring of Syrian refugees. See the point here is you CANNOT stereotype an entire community of people based on what they look like or what they believe if it is different from your norm. It’s absolutely okay to be white and I am not saying that you should go on an apology tour because sociologically, society is built to where the majority will always have the opportunity to oppress the minority. Being enlightened though is to stop with the labels. We all wear them. You’re either black or white or gay or straight a man or a woman and so on and so on in the realm of all the things that make you, you. One simply doesn’t just wear one label either. We are all many things. But seriously… stop living under the rock of how you identify yourself and taking pride in how you identify yourself too far by assuming you are the alpha and all those not like you are inferior simply because you fit the societal norm. That because you are part of the majority that you somehow are entitled to certain rights and considerations that others aren’t because of their being different. It’s absurd, it’s ridiculous, and it’s narcissistic.
Stop whitesplaining as well. I’m really fed up with that bullshit. Whitesplaining for your reference is a combining form extracted from mansplain, and meaning “to explain or comment on something in a condescending, overconfident, and often inaccurate or oversimplified manner, from the perspective of the group one identifies with,” as in ladysplain; whitesplain : racism being whitesplained to a person of color (dictionary.com). Being as how you have no idea what it’s like to get passed up for a job because of your skin color or pulled over just because you fit the description of a known “perpetrator”, or stopped and frisked for no reason, or forced to serve extended jail sentences for drug possession charges for having a small amount of marijuana on you for personal use while white people are out there getting high on demon semen and eating people’s faces, cause lets face it you mother fuckers like to get high too and all that means that you also have no right to explain the current state of oppression in America to someone who is oppressed because you aren’t oppressed. Just for the sake of clarity, oppression is defined as, 1 a : unjust or cruel exercise of authority or power b : something that oppresses especially in being an unjust or excessive exercise of power (meriam-webster.com). Can you honestly think to any time in your life where you felt you were treated unjustly or cruel by an authority of power?
By continuing to assert yourself in such a manner you help perpetuate the sense of entitlement that majority society has held for many decades, and centuries in other parts of the world where minorities are oppressed by being denied the same rights you think you alone are entitled to. I’m sure you need an example so here we go. It’s sad that all the examples you have witnessed in the media or that I have given you are not enough but we’ll go through a couple more just in case it hasn’t drilled far enough into your head.
A white kid named Dylan Roof with a radicalized racial grudge murders nine black people in a church and when he’s arrested, knowing he is armed and dangerous and a serious threat to anyone around him is taken into custody quietly, and driven to Burger King because he was hungry. I mean terrorism in cold blooded, premediated murder sure does build up quite the appetite, right? The media refused to call him a terrorist and so did you.
A black man Eric Garner, is allegedly selling loose cigarettes on a street corner and is chocked to death, another black man Alton Sterling, is selling DVDs out the trunk of his car outside of a laundromat and is shot multiple times and killed by a police officer, another black man Philando Castile, was shot four times and killed during a traffic stop in his car while he was still buckled into his seat belt, another black man Michael Brown was unarmed and shot by a police officer during a scuffle, Laquan McDonald was shot multiple times after he was already gunned down by police who initially said he faced them and threatened them with the knife he had in his hand. Police dashcam video eventually proved the police report of the incident false. Tamir Rice was only 12 years old when he was shot and killed for playing with a BB gun in a park, Terrence Crutcher was unarmed and had his hands up when he was shot and killed by a police officer who claimed he was allegedly reaching into the CLOSED window of his stalled vehicle, Keith Scott a disabled black man was killed by police after he was dragged out of the truck, Sandra Bland “committed suicide” in a jail cell after she was taken into custody after a traffic stop resulted in an unlawful arrest, Treyvon Martin was killed during a scuffle with a self proclaimed neighborhood watch captain who instigated the incident by stalking this kid, his crime, simply walking through a neighborhood wearing a hoodie while being black, Freddie Gray was taken into custody for having a knife on him and “suddenly” became unresponsive during transport to booking, John Crawford III was shot by police in Walmart for picking up a BB rifle off a shelf and talking on his cell phone while walking around the store. There are countless others who didn’t make the media scrum of incidents that have taken over our news coverage over the course of the past couple of years. I honestly don’t think I can name them all and I’m pretty sure I missed a few of the incidents popularized by the media.
Now, before you start going through each case and start bringing up the circumstances of the whys and whats and start telling me how difficult it is to be a police officer in the heat of the moment and pointing out who had a criminal record and what they were previously arrested for… consider the following.
Here’s some more white people who survived their encounters with the police as criminals themselves. James Holmes killed twelve people in a movie theater during a showing of the final chapter of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises. He’s in jail serving a life sentence plus 3,318 years but he wasn’t killed at the scene of his crime. Joseph Housman refused to identify himself and stood in front of a Dairy Queen waving a loaded rifle screaming that the revolution was coming. He was drunk, the police confiscated his gun and told him to pick it up at the police station the next day, he did and it was returned to him no questions asked. The man threatened police, and not only did he live, he wasn’t arrested. Lance Tamayo was actually shot by a police officer after he pointed a gun at police officers while children were present playing at a park eventually charging with his gun pointed in the direction of the police officers at the scene. It took police an hour to make the decision to shoot him and he was only shot once. They then spoke to him on the phone for fifteen minutes while maintaining a safe distance from him until he agreed to surrender. He lived. E.J. Watson threatened a man and his son with a gun during a road rage incident and when he was pulled over by police he had to be physically removed from the car where multiple empty beer cans were found along with a loaded Smith & Wesson. Jesse Deflorio is the knucklehead that shot a BB gun at police officers and lived to tell the tale. Two drunk white guys went into a Walmart, unpackaged and loaded BB guns and shot them in the store, and they didn’t die at the hands of the police who instead arrested them. Jed Frazier drove his car into a ditch and when police came to help him he pulled a gun on them. They removed him from his vehicle and arrested him without shooting him. Julia Shields was arrested after wearing body armor and shooting at other vehicles as she passed them in hers. She was arrested after she led police on a chase. She lived. Steven Whitlock was described as mentally disturbed when he pointed a gun at firefighters who arrived at his home to conduct a welfare check. He stole their equipment after they took cover and barricaded himself inside his house. Police forced themselves into this apartment after an hour and arrested him.
The difference between the first group of police encounters I mentioned and the second that I just described were that the people in the first group were black and the second were white so please do me a favor and save the bullshit excuses about how hard it is to be a cop in the line of duty and make split second decisions, especially if you yourself are not a cop. By insisting on making excuses for this kind of horrid behavior you are again further perpetuating your stance on race related issues. You are a racist. Here is my problem with you. Nobody said you had to take a side but you chose one and you chose one based on the people you can relate to the most racially. Hey guys Hitler was white, where are your swastikas? But when you decided that Black Lives Matter was a mob and not a movement and neglected the militarized and desensitized culture of police in America today you showed your true colors. But wait I heard you the first time, but you have black friends so you’re not a racist. You did community service in a rough neighborhood, so you care about the black community. Nobody wants your misguided charity what they need is for you stand up against the very system that forces them into needing charity to get by. Defeating the wage class is a completely different blog, not today my friends. We’re only talking about your racist ass ways.
By the way, if you are a cop and reading this and are offended because you do racially profile people or have planted evidence on a person for the sole purpose of making an unlawful arrest lawful, harassed or terrorized someone or misused your power in any way to purposely cause harm to a person based on the color of their skin or based your despicable behavior on your personal disdain for their culture you’re only offended because it’s the truth, you hate yourself and your conscience is killing you and you’re a self centered narcissistic piece of shit and you need help. I can help you; I haven’t counted you out so don’t count yourself out or get your panties in a bunch either. You can still be a better human being instead of a steroid raged racist troglodyte. If you’re a good cop and you believe in the oath you swore, to protect and serve, and you do right by the book and you want all people to know that all cops aren’t bad then speak up and speak out about what you can do to bridge the gap in community policing. You have a part to play that is more than merely making traffic stops to fill quotas and responding to crimes in progress. You can speak out against the system that continues to allow your fellow brothers and sisters in blue to bully and terrorize the community you serve all the while tarnishing your reputation and dragging your name down in the mud. I’m sure you tell your children what your parents told you about how you are who you associate yourself with and the same still goes for you now today as a professional adult. I completely one hundred percent support the efforts of the police and respect the job they do everyday but I will not stand by a dirty cop or hear some of your lame ass excuses for the dumb shit they do and get away with because of your white privileged perspective and racist ideology.
I swear to the stars that if I had a dollar for every time some of you ran to me with the headline of some media article where a black athlete, politician, actor or actress said something that was pro black or critical of the majority and you took it as “fuck you whitey”, crying about how racist that is because you got called out for you, yourself saying something that was overtly racist I would be a very rich man. I’m not your dad and we’re only worrying about how you conduct yourself as you are the only person responsible for your words and actions. That’s what you should be worried about, how you come across as opposed to how racist everyone else sounds because nothing that anyone else has to say about what they feel in their hearts whether it is in fact baseless or just a reaction of how they deal with the emotions of living in a world that vilifies them for being who they are, or even just absurd racist has anything to do with you. No subliminal messages here, I have had this brought to my attention by multiple friends of mine who are white and you guys have to stop because the shit is embarrassing. You’re making me look bad because other people are also reading your comments on my social media pages. I have to start somewhere and before I can start with the general populous I have to start with you guys because I also need your help to bring a better sense of awareness to others so they realize their place in all this and we can do something about it together because I can’t be the only one. And I can’t have you fighting the good fight with me still asleep.
Let’s also while we are at it get something extremely clear about the national anthem and the American flag. American sports media has inaccurately popularized the playing of the national anthem and saluting the flag as solely a tribute to the military. The military and American patriotism go hand in hand so I can understand where you associate the national anthem and patriotism with saluting the military. First of all, the NFL for example, does not sponsor the military tributes the government does who paid for them with your tax dollars. Second, standing respectfully during the national anthem and saluting the flag is pledging allegiance to the country and to democracy not to our military. It is your choice to do, not a law. When you are at home and the national anthem plays during a sporting event your ass in on the couch , so please shut the fuck up and get over yourself.
We all salute our very diverse military vets and active duty men and women and wish them a safe return home. We are very thankful for their service and their sacrifice. The problem is most of you haven’t been alive long enough to remember a time where we weren’t sending our troops into combat on foreign soil. The other problem I have with you is the fact that you would have balls big enough to deny a man’s right to peacefully protest the national anthem in a country that declared all men were created equal and actively know not all men in this country are treated equally but refuse to get as worked up over a VA hospital in NY refusing service to a Navy veteran that resulted in him taking his life in the parking lot. Wow, ladies and gents what scum you have become to declare such patriotism and when a vet in need dies you ignore those headlines to go after the black quarterback that kneels during the national anthem at the beginning of his football games in protest of social inequality. You ignored rampant systemic racism and oppression in favor of feeling insulted that anyone would disrespect your flag all while you went ahead and pissed on your own self proclaimed values of patriotism when you neglected the death of a navy veteran turned away by the very government you love so much. Come the fuck on man, wake up and smell the fresh blood on the concrete assholes! This makes you an undercover fucking racist. You had the balls to use your sense of patriotism to support your racist view of keeping minorities in “their place” just where you like them because it serves the agenda you were hypnotized into believing is in your best interest. You exposed yourself.
Look I get it. I truly do because I was fed the same bullshit you were growing up about who was superior and inferior and why. I overcame my biases. I wasn’t born to hate I was taught to hate. So were you, so think twice before you raise your kids with the same oppressive mindset you were raised under. That’s fucking child abuse to even subtly teach your kids to think themselves better than anybody else. Teach them to be kind to all because we are all equals that deserve the same considerations. Stop saying stupid shit like, “well if black people just obeyed the commands of law enforcement they wouldn’t get shot”. What you are really saying is they deserved it. THINK TWICE ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE SAYING BEFORE YOU SPEAK!!!!! Your kids are listening. You are their role models. Be a good one. When Colin Kaepernick takes a knee in protest of the national anthem because he says, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. That to me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder”… that “There’s a lot of racism in this country disguised as patriotism” (Colin Kaepernick) then what he is saying is exactly what he is saying. He didn’t say fuck the police and he didn’t say fuck the military. You’re all grown ass men and women and know the difference quite well between what he said and what you inaccurately interpreted his message to be because of your own narcissistic sense of race bating agenda. Don’t come at me with that silly bullshit because it makes you sound so incredibly fucking stupid. I read your comments, “Don’t like it then leave Kaepernick”! “Shut up and know your place”! I’ve seen incredibly condescending commentary from you white folk, slinging racial slurs and such. You disgust me horribly. Other athletes professionally, in the collegiate circuit and in high school are also kneeling to protest but you’re still focused on hating Colin Kaepernick and losing sleep over a man’s quiet and peaceful protest. You wish him harm and he’s received death threats. You continue to cheer for the demise of a man and insisted he put his money where his mouth is and do something other than hurting your so called fragile”patriotic” feelings. He did and it still wasn’t enough for you. If you aren’t joining the protest shut up and move along.
The moment you’ve been waiting for. Some of you guys are minorities yourselves. You know what it is like to be discriminated against. Yet you insist that Kaepernick is scum and a traitor because he didn’t stand up for the national anthem? You’re kidding right? Have you traced your roots. You think because you have had the opportunity to experience some token privilege as an accepted member of the majority community that you are excused from discrimination and oppression? You are so far gone wrong that it’s not even funny. Maybe you’ve made it to the top of the crop of your own community and you think that for some reason you are different and superior to the rest of your fellow minority community members. You’re spewing the same shit white privilege says about minorities about the people you share more in common with than they do further helping them oppress your people! In a sense you are oppressing yourself! Here’s an example. One of Donald Trump’s campaign promises was to build a massive wall between the US and Mexico and get the Mexican government to pay for it, that he intended to find every undocumented person here in this country and deport them without an immigration status hearing denying any human rights they may have. I saw a lot of concern expressed in the Mexican-American community but I didn’t see much other unity from other members of the Latino community. Once a rumor started that Trump also threatened to deport Puerto Rican people (which wasn’t true) everybody wanted to flash their natural citizenship and get angry. My Puerto Ricans, I love ya’ll but that was pretty brainless. Here’s my point in the grander scheme of things. People who are foreign born came to this country to live a dream, things are better here than they are where you came from and you know your fellow man is facing having to return to the same conditions you left. Let’s face it things are only slightly better here, greatly better for you but only slightly better period and you deny those people the comradery based on their immigration status? That’s cold man. I’m talking about those who have citizenship who look down on those who do not. Who treat them like dirt and discriminate against them because you feel accepted by the American people as the American people look down on you and discriminate against you.
Here’s the truth. We are either complacent with the way things are or implicit in the way things are going. Everybody plays a part. We are the six degrees of separation, like particles on a collision course with one another. I don’t have to tell you that it doesn’t matter who you are, we all have biases we have to overcome. Politics and social issues are dividing us. Some don’t care much for me lately. I’m too political, you don’t like my opinions. You can’t make peace with your friends, you make peace with your enemies (Barack Obama). I don’t have enemies. I won’t declare any. How you view me is your choice. If you heavily disagreed with me because of the position I have taken on injustice and the fight for social equality and I fell from your favor, I’ll still be there if I can and you ever needed it somehow. I am trying to say that I came across really crass to prove a point to you, to get you to see what it feels like to be so heavily criticized and have everything you say so strongly scrutinized. I’m not sorry, I don’t take it back and I stand by it. I’m imploring you to stop being part of the problem. I seriously love all of you. For all your flaws and for all you are. But you guys can’t continue to be so loose with what you say. Think very hard about your experiences and think very hard about your faults and the things you want to work on. Think about the things the world needs. Think about the injustices happening under your nose and do not for a second think they won’t impact you at some point. America is not the great nation you think it is. Wake up. Learn the real history of this country and accept the past to prevent it from happening again and again in the future. Take responsibility for your words and for your actions.
We must fight for equality in consideration for women’s rights, for civil rights for all minorities, for LGBT rights, for the rights to clean water, for environmental rights, and against injustice. We can fight peacefully. If anybody wants to have a legit conversation with me I am open to discussion. It’s not a hippy dream to accomplish peace and unity in this country and in the world and it is acceptable to denounce the establishment to force their hands to pay more attention to the issues we care about, that we are all facing instead of themselves and their personal agendas and each other.
Do better, be better.
