I have so many emotions when it comes to the shooting of Michael Brown in STL. When I scrolled through all the comments I fine my self angry with what’s being said. One race saying on thing and another saying something else. Wrong is wrong plain and simple white or black. Society is so quick to call rioter thugs/mob/low life’s….we don’t live where they live or see what they live with daily…. Let’s be carful there. Let’s be real careful whenever we talk about someone who lives a different level of desperation than we do…I’m not saying correction is never needed-but let’s just be careful. A kid lost his life and although I don’t have all the details a kid is dead. And a community can only take so much…I would say put yourself in their shoes, but we all know that isn’t possible. A little food for thought when a sport team wins a Stanley Cup, Super Bowl or World Series then set cars on fire and throw bricks threw window it’s called passion. And when citizens are standing on the street corners pointing guns at cops they’re hailed as patriots, but a unarmed teen not seen as human shot 8 times by those same cops.
Jesus please come save us from ourselves. It’s getting harder and harder to be proud of this country.
