It’s Not About Race!
John Metta
3K409

While you make some very valid points, you seem to have tunnel vision
and the daisy chain of connections you used to support those valid points is flawed. Here is some required reading if you truly want solutions.
Solutions are found when you understand why and how people 
can be so inhumane towards each other and yet passerbys
can put their own life at risk to jump into freezing water 
or run into burning buildings to rescue someone they never met
or put their spouse and children at risk of being shot by hiding a Jewish person because it was the right thing to do.

DEHUMANIZATION DOES NOT NEED RACE TO EXIST
See the “ Blue eyes — Brown Eyes Social experiment “ by Jane Elliott
( a white woman inspired by Martin Luther King who made it her life mission to stop discrimination ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jane_Elliott

They also made a documentary 
about the “ Blue eyes — Brown Eyes Social experiment “ by Jane Elliott
called “ The eye of the storm “
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAE3UqxIhfE&feature=youtu.be

DEHUMANIZATION IS UNDER THE SKIN ONE SCRATCH AWAY 
Or if you have the stomach for it watch “The Stanford Prison Experiment” 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZwfNs1pqG0

Spoiler alert. The Stanford Prison Experiment got so out of hand
when the pretend guards became so cruel and vicious 
with the pretend prisoners that they had to stop the experiment 
and never did one like it again.

DEHUMANIZATION IS NOT RACE BASED
Jay Van Bavel tests for for how quickly we dehumanize others perceived 
as not belonging to our group. 
Even though the groups were of mixed genders and races
and the group you were assigned to was arbitrary 
and it was all in a safe environment with pretend events.

MORE THAN ONE WAY TO FLEECE A SHEEP
Oh, those horrid Russian Tsars!
“Abraham Lincoln, 
enshrined as the great emancipator, freed the slaves 
by inciting a war that killed somewhere around 750,000 Americans. 
Emancipation came to the slaves by previously unheard of violence.

In contrast and at about the same time in history,
the autocratic Tsar Alexander II of Russia 
emancipated more than 23 million serfs without killing a single person. 
 John Kozy
BTW Serfs lived an abject life worse than any black American slave.

WHEN OTHER IS THE ENEMY NO ONE IS SAFE
President Andrew Jackson put a bounty on the head of Native Americans
promoting a genocide against indigenous people
In his brutal military campaigns against Indians, Andrew Jackson recommended that troops systematically kill Indian women and children after massacres in order to complete the extermination

First order of business when he became president was signing a law 
that he had proposed — the Indian Removal Act
 — which legalized ethnic cleansing. 
Within seven years 46,000 indigenous people 
were removed from their homelands east of the Mississippi. 
Their removal gave 25 million acres of land “to white settlement”

SKIP THE EMOTIONS PLEASE
“He wanted an “intellectual discussion” using logic so we could 
“really get to heart of the matter” without getting “derailed by emotions.”

- you are entitled to your anger but if you want your anger to be heard
your anger has to speak in a language which the listener understands.
There are many other cultures which require you to be emotive 
with your feelings when you are passionate about your subject, 
France included, just not the one you are in.

LANGUAGING 
Just what is your issue with French ?
There are more German sourced words in English 
than there are French words read a paragraph of German out loud 
as you think it would be said and you will be amazed 
at how English it sounds, and that is why English won the day 
over every other language
because it borrows, steals and absorbs words from other languages
sometimes even keeping the same spelling.

So what French became the official language in England
big deal.

The history of that decision is more complex than you are allowing,
it had to to with who was the rightful heir to the throne of England 
and the constant fighting between England and France 
as to whom was the legitimate heir to the Normandy properties.

Due to constant intermarrying and high mortality rates
the blood lines were blurred with many “legitimate heirs”

But, despite 300 years under the French language,
much to the consternation of the French, English prevailed.
Because English is so flexible.

Everywhere except United States and the UK educated people 
are required to learn a second language after their native language 
and it is always English.

There is no English Academy, as there is for French, German and Spanish, 
to provide linguistic discipline. English is a headless giant.

It has been estimated that 1000 rules are necessary to formulate English, 
and that there are 1,500 exceptions to these rules.

It would be difficult to find a more difficult language 
for multinational pilots and controllers to learn.

Yet English is the required language of all pilots
no matter from where they fly or to where they fly.

Yes English, where you drive on a parkway and park in a driveway.

Where flammable and inflammable are the same
but passable and impassable are opposite 
a slim chance and a fat chance are the same.

All of these are key words in pilot communication to the tower.

Harmless is the opposite of harmful
but shameless and shameful are not opposites

Where up is the opposite of down
and upright and downright are not opposites

What would happen if a non stop flight really was
What is a “ near miss “ 
you can nearly collide and you can miss but how can you “nearly miss”

Close proximity — is close close 
Put your best foot forward requires having three feet ( good better and best)

English poets are second to none 
and only the French think that their language is the “ better “ language
So again I ask what is your beef with the French Language.

CULTURE TRAPS. SNARE EVERYONE WHO IS OTHER
It is true when you say that 
“Culture defines all of our social expectations, but also our social prejudices. 
Every single thing we do and say, we do and say in the context of our culture.”

But then you go off the rails ruining perfectly good points 
with bad connections.

“The society here in America 
needed a way to justify the enslavement of a people 
for no other reason than they looked a bit different. “

NO NO NO ……NOT DIFFERENT JUST VULNERABLE OTHER
Slavery has been justified as far back as history was written. 
Every patriarchal-war-mongering culture
at one time or another throughout the ages
has used women, children, captured soldiers
and any and all improvised people as handy dandy “legitimate” slaves.

Slavery in Africa was alive and well for centuries 
long before the first white man bought their first slaves
from black slave dealers who had a sophisticated established network 
of slave trading, amongst themselves.

TAKE A NUMBER
“Slaves were made to speak English but were forbidden to read and write. 
In fact, the myth was promoted 
that they were slow and couldn’t even be taught.
White people saw slaves as animals, apes or at best, “lesser humans.”

-Native Americans 
were and are still considered to be drunken subhuman savages
incapable of being civilized or educated

-Irish 
were considered subhuman and born criminals

- Chinese 
were used as slave labour to build the railroad
and were considered so subhuman that burying the multiple hundreds 
who were killed because of frequent accidents
was considered a time waster.

-Gypsies 
everybody still hates the Gypsies

-Even Gypsies do not get along with each other
which is why they have difficulty finding a venue for their weddings 
which more often than not break out into fights.

-2016 Bulgaria 
has declared the language culture and music of gypsies 
as ethnically impure and it is illegal

-Jews 
same as Gypsies

Women
-The “ scientific” journals of the days of slavery taught that women 
 — have no souls
 — were incubators of the sperm of men 
which held the total foetus inside the sperm
 — had brains so fragile that they would “explode”
if too much information was inserted
 — to this day worldwide it is still a struggle to get girls educated

How sad is this
In 2016 there still has to be an American Campaign to get girls educated 
SEE “ We will rise” sponsored by Michelle Obama

1961 Florida actively prevented women from serving on juries
making sure that women were only judged by men 
and no men were judged by women
1961 may seem long ago but it was also 96 years 
after slavery was outlawed ( 1865 )

A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME IS STILL A ROSE
“West Africans were brought to this country as chattel slaves.”
Impoverished white Europeans were brought to America as indentured servants and before you start splitting hairs, they were slaves.

COMPLIANCE and SUBSERVIENCE AS VIRTUES for “OTHER”
“White people expected slaves to be subservient ”
-White people expected poor people to be subservient 
-White people expected paid workers to be subservient 
 ( hence unions were born at the end of a gun )
-White people expected women to be subservient
To this day scratch the surface of a white or black or Hispanic man, 
and they long for the days when men could punish women 
for not being subservient as in; beat the tar out of them.

RAPE IS RAPE IS RAPE, IN WORDS AND IN DEEDS
“White men objectified and raped Black women at will”

-White and black men objectify, raped and still do rape women at will.
-Even today the victim is too blame for provoking the rape
and in Haiti rape was not even an illegal act until 2010
made illegal by women who fought in the streets and in the government
against men who liked to be able to rape children with impunity.

-In 2016 you have fraternities who have initiation songs they sing in public
“No means yes and yes means in the ass” 
or this frosh week song condoning non-consensual sex with underage girls

SMU boys like the too young to consent 
Y is for your sister
O is for oh so tight
U is for underage 
N is for no consent
G is for grab that ass
you want to know what is really frightening about this frosh song.
Just as many women were singing it as men.
Sick sick sick,

Frosh leader said it was” never meant to be offensive”
Jeeeeze Louise………. !!!
Imagine the rioting if the song 
was about black women, black men, or gay men.

WHO HAS THE SEXIEST WOMEN
“while promoting the myth that white women’s purity 
was threatened merely by the gaze of a Black man.”

This one has me puzzled.
Even sci-fi movies would have you believe
that no matter how alien an alien, 
no matter how ugly, or how many tentacles
how many extra or missing eyes, heads or limbs, 
they all lusted after the Caucasian women.

What is it with white men 
and their image of how others see their women folk.
It is not as if they themselves hold their women folk in high regard.

SCALIA ONE DOZEN SHORT OF A DOZEN
Antonin Scalia said that Blacks “should go to slower schools.” 
This is a US Supreme Court Justice, folks.”

Scalia might just go down in history as the worst Supreme Court Judge ever.
Scalia thinks a Hollywood movie is real live 
and quotes one as his source for decision making

US, Supreme Court Justice Scalia 
votes to condone torture as a means to obtain useful information 
and quotes a Hollywood movie as proof of the validity 
of torture resulting in useful information.

It is bad enough the American public thinks that Hollywood action movies 
are historically correct
Hollywood is now the now legal source of reality for Supreme Court Judges.

Scalia references Jack Bauer and the Hollywood torture show “24” 
as relevant background for constitutional jurisprudence:.

“Jack Bauer saved Los Angeles.
 … He saved hundreds of thousands of lives,” Judge Scalia said. 
Then, recalling Season 2, where the agent’s rough interrogation tactics 
saved California from a terrorist nuke, 
the Supreme Court judge etched a line in the sand.
“Are you going to convict Jack Bauer?” 
Judge Scalia challenged his fellow judges. 
“Say that criminal law is against him? 
‘You have the right to a jury trial?’ Is any jury going to convict Jack Bauer? 
I don’t think so.

Jack Bauer IS A FICTIONAL CHARACTER This is nutso folks. 
A Supreme Court Judge thinks Hollywood is real, 
can it really get any stupider than that?

SECOND AMENDMENT PISH TOSH — TOSS THAT OUT
For 217 years the second amendment was 
“A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, 
the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”

Did everyone forget the FIRST 3 WORDS — A WELL REGULATED

Many thought that meant you could have a gun
if you were in the National Guard, but in District of Columbia v. Heller, 
five members of the Supreme Court (Scalia et al.) 
decided in 2008 that 217 years of precedent was for the dustbin
and for the first time the Second Amendment protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm unconnected with service in a militia.

Welcome to violent America where it is 5 % of the worlds population 
with 44% of gun ownership and 95% of gun violence 
http://www.vox.com/2015/10/3/9444417/gun-violence-united-states-america

THEM AGAINST US OR THINGS ARE WHAT THEY SEEM
And apparently countless Black men would not have gotten shot in the back 
if they had “just done what they were told to do.”

Sadly black men get shot 
- because they are black 
- when they are lying down with their hands in the air
- when they are walking home and pass your house
- when they are easily 200 yards from the nutcase police woman 
who shot a black man on the ground 
who had been tasered and restrained by two burly policemen.
Despicable.
Outrage and anger are appropriate feelings
because they energize us. But once anger has passed its energy to us
we have to put it aside and seek solutions because anger is not productive.

Like a drug we take to relieve anxiety, which gets us addicted 
because the drug starts to cause the anxiety we wanted to avoid,
anger becomes the problem when it is all we have.
 
The reasons and the solutions are to be found 
in the previous mentioned Required Readings
-Jane Elliott
-The Stanford Prison Experiment
-Jay Van Bavel 
-Scott Atran
-Gloria Steinem

NORMAL IN THE EYES OF THE BEHOLDER
Why do we teach the way we do? Write our laws the way we do? 
In short, why is our society the way it is?

Because it is MALE focused and MALE — WARRIOR referenced.

NORMAL IS THE NEW NORMAL
Why is it normal to eat with a fork instead of chopsticks?
- NOT IN CHINA

Why is it normal for a man to wear a suit to a business meeting 
instead of a loose, colorfully printed robe?

NOT IN AFRICA

Why is it normal to sit in a chair instead of on the floor?
NOT IN AFRICA, INDIA AND CHINA

Why is a woman in a long gown and a bonnet accepted
 — archaic, perhaps, but accepted?

Because a Gown and bonnet 
- is a fashion statement, worn today discarded tomorrow

Why is a nun wearing a black gown and habit accepted?
Because you have to work, and pray and sacrifice, for years and years 
to earn the habit, no one imposed it on you.

“Why is a woman in a burka somehow threatening?”
- because it is a 99.9% chance that is was not optional, 
not a choice freely given.
And please do not confuse choice with coercion 
as in wear it or you shame your family, 
wear it or we will shun you, wear it or we will kill you.

It is a superimposed attempt 
to make women disappear and be under the control of the men.

It can hardly be argued that it is a choice freely given, 
when “the choice” is embedded in culture expectations,
and at best you suffer the looks of disappointment from your parents
whom you love or at worst suffer an honor killing.

The one thing all humans fear is to not belong, to be shunned.
That is why solitary confinement is considered 
cruel and unusual punishment has been banned in many countries 
and severely restricted in others.

So the threat of being shunned will dissuade any nonsense 
a woman might have had entertaining the thought 
of not being fully covered in coffin clothes.

Did you not see, how fast they disappeared,
once the Taliban was ousted from Afghanistan cities.

The women who were left wearing them were asked why, 
and they said to a person.
We are afraid that the Taliban will be back.

IT IS ALWAYS ABOUT OTHER 
But it’s not about race. If it’s not, then it’s about them 
not obeying the cultural expectations of white people
 — which amounts to the same damn thing.”

Because it is about OTHER

It is bigger than race , 
It is Umwelt — I can only relate to you when I suffer the same pain
and if you do not get that then you will be pulling off the scab 
and leaving the disease behind. 
If we do not understand the real problem, 
then the problem will never be solved
it would be like trying to take food colouring out of a lake

NOT ABOUT RACE IT IS ABOUT “OTHER”
Tackling it as only a race problem 
would be like killing the cancerous tumours caused by smoking 
but you forget to tell the patient to stop smoking.
Both have to be done. 
Remove the tumours and stop smoking.

The tumours are created by culture norms 
where fear of “ OTHER” makes “ OTHER” equal to “Lessor” 
because FEAR NEEDS A BAD GUY
which leads to violence 
instead of curiosity, celebration, compassion and connection.

NOT RACE — NOT LANGUAGE EITHER
BLACK vs BLACK — both sharing the same language
In America more black men kill black men than Police kill black men
Gun violence is the leading cause of death for black men 
more than the next 9 causes combined.
Their lives matter too.

Idi Amin Dada the ‘Butcher of Uganda’ the most notorious 
of all Africa’s post-independence dictators. 500,000 slaughtered 
and all of his victims shared a common language, culture and race.

BTW to this day there are people who still worship him
Shades of Trump worshipers

Biafra Nigerian slaughter of people 
sharing the same language, culture and race.

The Rwandan Genocide, Hutu’s slaughtering Tuts
who all shared a common language, 
culture and race ( 800,000 killed )

Boka Harum — displaced 2 million people — scorched their homes and land
their stated objective the destabilization of Nigeria (200 million )
sharing the same language and race.

NO IT IS NOT EVEN ABOUT WHITE ON BLACK

WHITE vs WHITE — both sharing the same language
Croatian war against the Serbs 20,000 killed 52,000 wounded and disabled
All shared a common language

Stalin purges of fellow Russians 1 million slaughtered 
sharing the same language, culture and race.

CHINESE ON CHINESE — both sharing the same language
- Genghis Khan
China’s history of civil wars goes back centuries
 — hundreds of millions slaughtered.
All shared a common language and race.

CAMBODIAN ON CAMBODIAN 
Pot Pol slaughtered over 1 million fellow Cambodians 
who all shared the same language culture and race.

NO IT IS NOT ABOUT RACE IT IS ABOUT “NOT QUITE ME”

RELIGION ON RELIGION — all sharing the same language
Even the poster children of PEACE AND LOVE Buddhists.
Tibetan Yellow Hat Buddhists vs Tibetan Red Hat Buddhists 
Both were Buddhists the religion of non violence 
sharing the same language slaughtering each other for centuries differentiated only by the colour of their hats.
Looks like the yellow hats won.

Protestants vs Catholics both Christians
- in the thousands of years of cross slaughtering

The totally impure Puritans of Massachusetts 
despised the Quakers of Pennsylvania and the Catholics of Maryland.

Sunni vs Shiites both Muslims
Muslims are the primary victims of today’s Islamist terrorism
More Muslims than non-muslims 
are killed by the radicalized muslim zealots.
All share a common language and religion. ( same god different prophet )

NO IT IS NOT ABOUT RACE IT IS ABOUT ONE vs EVERYONE
- Kim Jong-un — killed off 70 of his inner circle
and impoverishes millions of his own people.

Trump 
”Kim Jong-un killed his uncle and deserves ‘credit’ for getting things done.”

- Mussolini killed and jailed tens of thousands fellow Italians 
who all shared the same common language, religion and culture.

- Stalin — kept killing off his inner circle over and over again

And of course the all time winner Hitler who was an equal opportunity bigot
( the same thing Trump supporters say about Trump )
Hitler who worked his way to the Jews 
by first doing away with 
- German mental patients, 
- then the homosexuals
- then the trade unionists
- then the Communists
- then the socialists, 
- then his political opposition by bombing buildings and blaming them
- then the gypsies 
then on to the Jews

See the poem “ First they came for “ by Niemöller
http://hmd.org.uk/resources/poetry/first-they-came-pastor-martin-niemoller

I am sure Hitler would have done away with the Mexicans also 
if they lived nearby.

Hitler was never a big fan of, but still surprisingly easy handed on blacks, 
never sent them to concentration camps
and allowed them to serve in the army but given enough time 
I am sure he would have eventually exterminated them also
because he wanted a pure race of 
Tall , Athletic, Fit, Blond, Blue Eyed, Germans.

Hitler was not German, 
was short, not athletic, not fit, with black hair and brown eyes.
Great salesman n’est-ce pas?
Remind you of anyone?

BLACK HISTORY DOES NOT HAVE CLEAN HANDS
At the same time slavery was alive and well, 
legally women were not people.
That was what the Suffragist movement was about.
It was not just about getting the vote but being declared “ legal persons”
Legally women were chattels 
equivalent to cattle, imbeciles and children but not “legal persons”

Black men were fighting for the vote ( legal personhood ) 
at the same time as the women.
They convinced the women to help them get the vote first 
and then they would in turn help the women to get legal status 
the women foolishly trusted the black men 
but when black men got the vote they worked tirelessly 
for the next 40 years to keeping the women from getting the vote.

An absolute shameful period of Black History 
which is typically not allowed to see the light of day.
I wonder if that was included in the new much touted 
Black History Museum.

COWBOYS WERE THUGS, RAPISTS, AND PEOPLE ANNIHILATORS
“After the Civil War, Americans pushed the frontiers of America 
all the way to the Pacific Ocean. 
They did it with the gun. The Winchester Model 1873 repeating rifle 
and Colt Peacemaker revolver of 1873 are colloquially known as
“The Guns that Won the West” for their predominant roles 
in the hands of Western settlers. 
Americans shot their way from the Mississippi to the Pacific.

American foreign policy for decades has consisted primarily 
of military misadventures — foreign policy through the barrel of a gun! Today, the gun has become the drone and the bullet, the hellfire missile. “

John Kozy
http://www.globalresearch.ca/violence-the-american-way-of-life/5318698

In the Pequot War, English colonists commanded by John Mason, 
launched a night attack on a large Pequot village on the Mystic River 
and burned the inhabitants in their homes and killed all survivors.

By conservative estimates, the population of the United states 
prior to European colonization was greater than 12 million. 
Four centuries later, the count has been reduced to 237,000. 
Four centuries of continuous violence against native Americans, 
and the violence persists.
John Kozy

BEING HEARD IS NOT CAPITULATING
It would be “better” to talk about it in a way 
that Western Europeans will be comfortable talking about it?”

Yes if you want to be heard.

In other words: 
“Let’s make sure everyone is speaking our language 
and knows who’s in charge.”
NO NO NO NO AND NO AGAIN
it is not about being in charge , it is blooming where you were planted.
The people you want to understand your pain 
can only understand you if you speak in a language they can understand.

CAN A FISH KNOW WATER IF IT DOES NOT KNOW AIR
“This culture is so normative that most white people 
never have to think about it or even know it exists “

Of course not.
You cannot know your own culture 
any more than you can be aware of the 15 lbs per square inch 
of pressure exerted on our bodies from the air which we breath 
and in which we walk.

Imagine if you were born and raised on the moon, your first visit to Earth 
would find you lying face done on the ground unable to breathe 
because of the enormous pressure of the surrounding air

You cannot know your own culture until you have stepped outside of it.
The only way to step outside of your own culture is to either live 
( not visit ) but live in a different culture or learn their language.

Learning another language is not about learning a bunch of words
it is how the words are used to express their culture.

English — bull’s eye
French — heart of the target
If you translated directly from English to French 
it would sound like this. The eye of the bull.
Whereupon they would look at you like you are from another planet.

And I do not know about you but “heart of the target” 
may sound more romantic
but nothing beats Bull’s eye for a celebratory high five.

English: it is worth the price.
French” le jeu en vaut la chandelle
Direct translation — the game is worth the candle

Why a candle, because 95% of the French come from a Catholic background
where candles play a very large role in their lives.

Most swear words in English are sexually referenced
Most swear words in French are religiously referenced

French swear words…..
hosti — from the word Hosti a Sacramental bread
or esti by children who are not allowed to swear
Or ciboire — from ciborium the chalice holding the hosts for communion

hosti just does not do it for me.

WHEN IN ROME
“Yeah, using the Socratic method to talk intellectually 
would probably be a good way for us to discuss systematic racism.”

Yeup if you want to be heard and understood.

PREJUDICE IS FEAR, FEAR IS STICKY , FEAR NEEDS A BAD GUY
“All of these prejudices still reside in white culture.”
Yes of course they do, because it is fear based.
And the fear is stoked by the fearful 
and can only be stomped out with truth and compassion.

SEE: If Men Could Menstruate. by Gloria Steinem. 
“the characteristics of the powerful, whatever they may be, 
are thought to be better than the characteristics of the powerless
 — and logic has nothing to do with it. ”
http://www.mylittleredbook.net/imcm_orig.pdf

YOU ARE IN GOOD COMPANY WHEN FEAR SPEAKS IN SLURS
Donald Trump said he believed that
 “Laziness is a trait in blacks.”

Trump also said
“The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day. Those are the kind of people 
I want counting my money. Nobody else. . . . “

Is that so much better a racial slur 
than his black, women, Hispanics, gay and transgender slurs?

Trump also said.
“You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write 
as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.”

BTW he also thinks that his daughter 
“is a young and beautiful , piece of ass”
and said
“ I would date her if I was not married and her father”
Did you notice that being her father was the second barrier and not the first.
Yeuck factor times 10,000 considering he cheats on he wives.

Trump said
 “I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing,” 
putting her to work? really? 
sounds like he is talking about a dog or an oxen 
which you put to work on the farm.

“and the sadness he feels once his female protégées 
reach their own level of success.
“The softness disappeared. . . . She became an executive, not a wife.”
and said “ a nursing mother is a disgusting thing”

VIOLENCE IS VIOLENCE IS VIOLENCE 
AND ITS’ BOUNDARIES ARE NOT RACE 
And apparently countless Black men would not have gotten shot in the back 
if they had “just done what they were told to do.”

These are intolerable, inexcusable, abominable racist acts 
and they have to stop.
Meanwhile thugs must be prevented 
from usurping the justifiable anger from these intolerable acts
and shutting down remediation with 
looting
= ( stealing from hard working business people black and white 
who never did you any harm)

and vandalism
= ( trashing property of hard working business people black and white 
who never did you any harm)

neither of which has ever been proven to increase the peace 
or solve any problem anywhere in the history of problem solving.

Lebron James
“ no one achieves greatness alone 
it takes everyone working together to create real change
I do not know what will finally end the violence but I do know 
we need to bring us together and keep us unified”

And it proves my point that the racial motivated shooting 
of unarmed black men is only part of the problem. 
It is the canary in the coal mine warning us of the putrid air 
of violence as a solution we are all breathing because

-There are more poor black and white women being raped and killed 
than black men being shot and killed by the police.

-There are more poor white men being shot and killed by police 
than black men being shot and killed by the police.

-there are more police being shot and killed 
than black men shot and killed by police

-there are more black men being shot and killed by black men 
than black men being shot and killed by police

So no it is not about race.

It is a pervasive problem embedded in an America culture 
steeped in violence.
Where
Violence is a solution
Violence is a form of entertainment
Male heroes are violent
Vigilante Violence is what Hollywood heroes are made of.
Everything is a war
War on cancer
War on drugs
War on terror
War on poverty
War on diabetes
Moving into the 21st century with energy is called war on coal
War on ……………….. you name it.

A killing takes place in America at an average of 87 times each day.

Going to war in the Middle East is less dangerous than living in Chicago.
And yet the term Chiraq is worn with pride by Chicago gangs, 
because they have more murders than Iraq.

AS SEEN THROUGH THE EYES OF A STRANGER
as Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in 1835

“ Nothing conceivable is so petty , so insipid, so crowded with Paltry interests 
in one word so anti-poetic as the life of a man in the United States”

You are entitled to your anger but once anger has served its purpose
 — to energize you then it has to be put on the back burner 
because anger is not productive

NO MATTER WHO IS THE TARGET THE SOURCE IS THE SAME
FEAR OF OTHER
Black
Women
 in recorded history more women have been killed 
just because they were women
 than all of them men in all of the wars ever fought.
 This is not counting the abortions of female fetuses 
and infanticide of new born girls.
Native
Jews
Hispanics 
Muslims
Hindus ( Americans cannot tell them from Muslims)

No one can claim dibs on being victims of bigotry 
because bigotry is not isolated to just one group of other.

It is all inclusive.
If someone has one hatred of one group the hatred spreads
to all the others who are not a part of my herd.

The difference between the problems now and the solutions tomorrow 
is one generation.
(paraphrased from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg )
