Hi fellow classmates and Prof. Seslow, this right here below is one of the blogs I have written and I am very happy to share it with all of you.
WHY CANT WE JUST LIVE IN A PEACEFUL WORLD WHERE ALL RACE AND RELIGION ARE TOLERATED
When living in America for almost 20 years, I feel that racism and discrimination will keep taking place and shockingly will never be resolved between black people. Even though before when Civil War have taken place between blacks as slaves and whites who basically owned them and would make slave’s lives miserable and even though this eventually got resolved, there are still conflicts going on between Muslims and black people. Especially in 2016, with the election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, the media and tv news networks care more about Trump, ISIS, than black people getting shot everyday by police.
Why do we have to witness or hear news of people like Eric Gardner, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Walter Scott, Freddy Gray, Alton Sterling, Philando Castle getting killed or shot by police for no reason at all, and Sandra Bland who was found hanged in a jail cell in Texas just because of a traffic stop. My brother is right when he said there should be no black guy getting shot unless he killed someone or was pointing a gun straightly at the police officer. I just feel mad and disgusted whenever I hear news like this happen everyday and the bad part is that nothing is going to happen to stop this from happening. And every time there was shooting taking place that ended up getting blacks getting killed, Barack Obama always said something even after the recent shooting in Minnesota and Louisiana. Why is that white people can have a gun on them and say that it is their constitutional right and when black people have gun, they get shot as a result, and there are so many white people have and are allowed to have as many guns as they want and not get the same mistreatment as blacks. Nothing is going to happen unless the same thing happened to them or if they lost someone someone dear to them like black families.The only way that something is going to be done is if everyone all come together and if they are really angry with whatever is going on, they themselves can write an email or letter to their local congressman.
And to follow up with the Dallas shooting is not worse than police officers killing black people everyday, and to elaborate more further the police has only a few things that they can do which is to protect people who are in danger and try to keep the community safe by arresting bad people from the streets, and it is definitely not killing black people who didn’t commit any major crime and as a result the families have to suffer and the family loses their husband or father from this horrific act. And Zaevion Dobson who got shot just for shielding girls from bullets and heart goes out to the family and there really has to be some major changes in criminal justice system and blacks have to be treated like they are not a threat to society. What is so funny that ever since Barack Obama was the president of the United States, that led to so many people being killed mostly African Americans by any type of police officer, and what is sad that this is happening everyday but everyone else cares about the useless things and it really doesn’t make a difference if there are so many shootings or killings that take place everyday, and instead we care about who is going to be the next president of the United States.
