White people of my generation have found a new excuse to dislike Blacks. They are looters. They destroy property. Well so did the early Americans during the Boston Tea Party.
Sometimes you have to go to any length to get people's attention. What do Americans love more than anything. Money and property. Early in our history you could only vote if you owned property. It gave you prestige.
Today destroying property is a death sentence for black Americans. They are shot like the guy in Vallejo, California. White people are pushed or arrested but never shot in the back. Have you ever seen or heard of a white person getting shot in the back for running away from the police. No. The police chase them or let them go.
This is my radical side. Raising a black man has taken off my blindfolds and I am sure he keeps some of the racism against him a secret to pacify me. But now I am seeing it unfold on the news.
A video of a brutal beating did not get a conviction for those who assaulted Rodney King. Even the death of George Floyd is going to be swept under the rug like always. They will just say the policeman was afraid for his life.
Enough ranting for today. I need to stop watching the news. I made it through the first civil rights movement, but I was not this angry because at the time I did not have a black son.
