Disrespect of the Black Race
Something has been troubling my mind for a very long time. After the murder of Eric Gardner, there has been some shootings going on. I recently heard a 18 years old black men has been shot by a police officer. Someone who was supposed to uphold the law...to protect and serve is the moto. But maybe what the police department means is to protect and serve ourselves not the black people... That is probably the truth. The more I am growing up, the more I understand where Malcom X is coming from...Maybe he was right about separating the blacks from the system. Maybe America is not our home. It is not a black man's home, a Latino's home, nor an Asian's home. I want all people who are white to not be offended. I know there are a lot of genuine people that are white: the ones in the blog for example, and some of my friends. I also know few of them that are well-known: Nikola Tesla, George Carlin, John Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, and many more. However, there are still some of them, if not a lot that still continues the suppression of black people. I don't know. If anyone ask me if I am proud of being American, I will just say straight: No. How can I be? The greatest country in the world, or should I say self-proclaimed #1, promotes racism, violence, negativity in the media and you want me to be proud of that? Are you kidding me? Never. I cannot be proud of something so corrupted. Look at what we are watching too on TV. We are so drawn into MMA, sport fighting, violent movies, fast food and all kind of shit. There is no way that I can be proud of such country. The people in power needs to fix it before I can be proud of it. I don't know maybe I will be the next target one day. The headline probably will be "FMK student died from police shooting!". And what even bothers me still is that the cops will still be around doing the same thing over and over again.... How can I have any hope for this piece of shit country? How... I am sorry I just cannot. That is why teaching the Martial Arts in America is too difficult. The population is not ready for that because they are too corrupted. I might as well just communicate the Martial Arts to the people that really understand me. Not to these police officers though because they might use it against you..especially if you are black. My thoughts are all over the place. I want to apologize for anything that I say to offend anyone but I just cannot hide my emotions anymore. I had to let it out somehow.
