Police Brutality and Black Culture

Black Lives Matter
The police enforce the laws by protecting citizens of crimes against humanity; however, what happens when the men in blue who took the oath to protect us becomes the enemy? Racial intolerance has existed for centuries among society. Not only have whites discriminated against blacks, but blacks have discriminated against blacks. 

When a person is devalued and treated differently for possessing a different skin color and ethnic origin--we must question why? After I watched the video of George Floyd my blood boiled. I saw it first on Facebook Watch where it was originally shared and was utterly disgusted and deeply appalled by what I witnessed. 

As a huge supporter of police, I was so shocked to see such corruption right in front of my face. So I decided to write the fifth episode for the Even Salt Looks Like Sugar podcast about it. Hosted by Billy Housh, I discovered so many cases in the 20th and 21st century that really bothered me. Featuring clips of Malcolm X (who is one of the most brilliant minds of all time), this podcast was put together incredibly. 

I have to admit, I am not a fan of looting nor a fan of rioting, but I am a fan of protesting. Protesting peacefully. I believe no human right should be subverted or undermined. I believe the time is now to use your voice to and for a higher purpose.
