Today, more than at any other time in our past, recent, history has there been a concerted effort to demonize a large majority of the public and that being white people. Even whites are guilty of blaming their own people for things that they actually had no involvement in. Sins of the past are being blamed on people of the present, and future, and in doing so, at the rate it's being done, I fear, is sparking a large and growing backlash under the surface of society.
I've known people I've lived around, worked around, and talk to that never have had a racist bone in their body start to talk like someone developing racial tendencies against black Americans. These are not African Americans they are Americans and while Black lives do matter so do White lives, brown lives, red lives, yellow lives, and yes blue lives or in other words ALL LIVES MATTER with no distinction as it is with our creator, God.
I was just listening to ABC News tonight where a young bi-racial woman was highlighted as being attacked by four Whites, being set on fire, in what was deemed as a hate crime. It was a detestable act worthy of harsh penalties if they are ever caught but it's also something that I worry will only increase as more and more groups (newspapers, news outlets, magazines, politicians) demonize one race over others casting blame things that they never, themselves, did, and blame only because of the color of their skin. It is Reverse Racism at it's worst and the real monster and demon, Racism itself, continues to live, thrive, and expand.
If racism is wrong, which it is, it is wrong against all peoples regardless of their skin whether they are black, red, yellow, or yes white. What's going on is an explosion and revelation of racism against white American and I fear, as many people do, some people who believe they are attacked, then in turn, attack back and all of it is wrong.
Are there some white police that are racist that shouldn't be police? Of course and hopefully, they will be discovered, revealed, and dismissed. The cure for racism is to recognize it and eliminate it not perpetuate it and give it a new target or group. I fear that what is happening will only grow and increase with horrible, unjustified attacks against innocent people of all races and leaning toward yet another uncivil war among us. Today you have people destroying historical monuments not for a valid reason but out of their own ignorance for they don't even know the history behind the monuments or the people depicted by the monuments or what they actually did for our nation. These are mind-numbed individuals who mostly come from affluence and never themselves understood anything about democracy, our constitution, and/or freedom itself.
Are we at a point where all of this can be stepped back from and the escalation stopped? I hope so but it will take rational people, of all races, and principled politicians as well as honest media to stop it and affect change. We aren't perfect but we also aren't as bad as most make us out to be. The bad thing is many of those who we need to make sure we don't go further down a dangerous road is either beyond their ability or desires for many today, politicians, media, etc, put their own parties and employer principals above the better good of the nation and our Constitutional republic.
