Is Equality Feasible
Throughout history inequality has always existed and one race of people hold themselves superior to another. However does this whole concept stem from scientific evidence or just plain stupidity? The color of one’s skin does not define a man. All men are created the same. One race of people do not possess superior brains or body organs that another do not possess. To say the goods is better because the packaging is different shows ignorance and stupidity.
Ignorant and stupid people we can live with. However when these people are so driven by hate of skin color that a person is hurt or killed just for walking while being black we have a very serious problem. Most serial killers are white males, does this mean every time we look into the face of a white man we see a potential serial killer? There are black men who break the law and yes they commit crimes but does that mean every black man is a criminal?
While we cannot change a person’s thinking and make a stupid person smart those who take the oath to protect must do so without prejudice. They must see people not in terms of skin color but as human beings. They must stop looking through biased lens where they see a white man as a decent citizen and the black man a potential criminal just by looking at their skin color. If you give a mad man a loaded gun a catastrophe is likely to happen. Presently we have power given to biased perhaps even racist law enforcers and catastrophes are taking place.
The killing of young unharmed black male must stop. Law enforcer acting like thugs and beating up on black men must stop. The policy of shoot first and ask question after must stop. Lead by example. There is no need to kill a man unless your own life is in danger. Do not abuse the power you are given, when you do so it makes you no better than the criminals. This is for all law enforcers irrespective of skin color for the black police officer is just as quick to beat up on his own as the white one is. People are people and we must move forward by accepting and respecting one another. Too many black males have already lost their lives unnecessarily. Let good judgement and fairness prevail. Let there be equal rights and justice for all.
I wrote this article six years ago. Since then nothing much has changed and it is just as relevant now as it was back then.
