The STRIPES of Healing
This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own. The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty. Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience. “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.
Issue 7: Time to Descend?
Writing this issue has been delayed on purpose until after the trial of that police officer that killed George Floyd. Now to be sure and inform you that this issue will be written in strong language that may be unsuitable for sensitive eyes. Be careful if you choose to continue absorbing this issue because I’m about to reveal some ugly truths about how we got to this position of illusory justice in America.
“This is what happens when you cover yourself (America) in darkness thinking you will not be engulfed by it, but you end up in a straitjacket void of buckles or ties unable to wiggle your way out of it”.
The US Supreme Court for decades willfully leaving it up to the police to define what they think is reasonable. The US Supreme Court for decades abdicating their responsibility to clearly state or uphold the law. The US Congress for decades has failed to legislate a set of just laws that created one standard for law enforcement nationwide. Why do rational human beings think that giving anybody God like powers enables them to restrain their base impulses? I would rather that police officer Chauvin exercised his right to testify. Got on the stand and told the courtroom and the rest of the world that I killed (that nigger) George Floyd because I knew a jury of white people (Christian folk) would let me off with a wink and a nod.
The police say they are being characterized unfairly? When a police union official states that killing a boy with his hands raised was perfect police conduct? Right! I have to contrast that statement with what I was trained to do in the US Army. Warfare is not chaotic in reality. It requires professional soldiers that identify the target (PID Positive Identification) before firing your weapon. For those that do not know it simply means that the enemy must be clearly identified before discharging your weapon. Yes, civilians could be innocently there in urban environments going about their daily lives and shouldn’t be killed because they were inadvertently close to your target.
Police want your respect and admiration even when they act with indifference to human life? Say that again. The police want your respect even when they are afraid and they shoot first and kill a citizen? Maybe the police want a blank sheet (US Supreme Court) so they can write what happens to fit the lies they so easily tell. Yeah ‘EvanDevilcals’ the police lie as easily as anyone else except they are the ones with the guns and the law backing up whatever bullshit they pull out they ass.
Now to the Lawyer for Officer Chauvin and don’t tell me the smirk on his face didn’t mirror the one on Chauvin’s the day he chose to kill that nigger. Why I say it like that look no further than the ‘Devils’ that worship whatever God they do in their churches on Sundays. Why does everything have to take an act of government to say that it is wrong? Why can’t these so called ‘EvanDevilcals’ ever say lynching is wrong long ago. Killing other human beings because of the color of their skin is wrong. Why these juries like the one that could not convict that Officer for shooting Walter Scott? It was on film was it not? Maybe it was not really murder when an Officer shoots an unarmed human being in the back no less. Kind of cowardly isn’t it?
Yet a Christian couldn’t see that it was wrong. Tells you everything you need to know about what they are learning in their churches doesn’t it? I will tell you what I would wish for if I had one wish. I would wish that I could just be allowed by God to witness one of these evil men or women when God asks them did they do it and why. Of course God knows already what was on their heart when they did it, but I would like to be present when he caste one of those evil folk to condemnation in Hell. Yes juries of all white people past, present and future you’re going to have to answer for why you didn’t vote to meet out justice when the truth was clear as day to you. I am not sorry for telling you this. You will be standing right next to them in Hell so I hope being in power had its’ carnal benefits. There will be a day everybody will have to answer why these killings have gone on this long.
Now do you understand why America is stuck on a descending ride to darkness. Guns absent just authority led to this. You can’t hope human beings will do the right thing. The US Supreme Court are supposed to be made up of smart people and even they don’t want to do their jobs! I went to one of my favorite burger joints the other day and ordered a chicken sandwich meal. When my order was ready the young lady put the sandwich in the bag and slightly threw it on the counter while saying my order number. I come up to the counter and shake the bag and then point at it. You know what the young lady said? “What, I don’t know what that means.” I said, “Read the ticket where are my fries.” She said something else smartly and then I just couldn’t hold back. I said, “Do you job, I shouldn’t have to tell you your job. You work here.”
It seems that in every position of power at every level of government from State to Federal no one wants to take any ‘heat’ or criticism for God forbid doing what’s right! Why are you in the position? If you don’t want to do your job then resign and let somebody else make the tough decisions. “You can’t dance in darkness all the time because sooner rather than later you won’t see your feet and who knows where you’re dancing off to.”
TIME TO DESCEND will last how much longer? God help us if we continue to care so frivolously about life because we can’t create a just society if we allow the ‘voice of evil’ to guide our path out of the darkness. Healing starts at home with the truth being told. All those ‘EvanDevilcals’ that stated God sent us President Donald Trump need to repent openly their statements. Or not. Either way I am reminded of a verse of scripture. “Be not overcome with evil but overcome evil with good.”
