The water is boiling and starting to spill out of the pot on to the burner.
Tensions are high in the United States of America…and a race war is brewing.
People who use to wear smiles and impart kind words are now angry and overflowing with hate.
No one wants what’s coming, but this train is very difficult to stop.
The mainstream media is fueling this discord, like a bully who pits two people against each other by pushing one into the other….
….over, and over again.
At some point, one will get angry and swing on the other. A real fight will break out against the two….even though the real enemy is standing right there…smirking.
Instead of fighting each other, they should have band together and whooped the crap out of the bully.
But that would have been way too easy, right?
Be careful what you allow CNN, MSNBC and Fox News to feed into your mind. They’re biased for a reason…and it’s not one-sided.
As a black woman, I’ve learned a lot about myself over the past week and a half, and how I intend to proceed to better the black community. Anything done on the micro level will also affect the macro.
While neither side is perfect, it’s disheartening to see the level of hatred and disrespect displayed amongst so many people. Surely your Mama has taught you better than that.
Or has she?
If you’ve been engaged in online battles concerning the recent controversy, I would implore you to find ways to help your community. If you’re already active in your community, try adding one more good deed to your list.
Neither you nor I want a civil war to break out, but if we don’t do something about it, then that’s exactly what we’re going to get.
And there’s no coming back from that.
Are you prepared for massive civil unrest? How will you protect your loved ones if it does?
