No respect and an absolute disgrace. All lives matter and should never ever be questioned.
I wrote this post as I have a two year old grandson of mixed race so where does that leave him? Will he be safe walking down the street or be really caught in the middle in the future?
I do not like what I am seeing playing out in the United States and the UK right now. I am not political at all and just a normal human being who just want things to be open and honest. The leadership of their Police Forces is pathetic, being an outsider looking in it doesn't seem real yet it is. I don't think it is just the leaders of the Police Force however, but the mayors and political leaders of our regions as well. Snowflakes in power is not a recipe for success. How low does something have to go before it is fixed. Racism is being used to divide and conquer and people are scared to even raise the topic which is why racism will always be around.
I watched a video of rioters in London two days ago where the Police whilst confronting rioters sank to one knee. I get the idea of what they were trying to achieve, but it showed weakness when strength is required.These protesters are not protesting in peace and mustn't be confused with what we have seen in the past. Something bigger is at play and it is all about political instability.Most of the protesters are merely kids or youngsters and have been bought up with no discipline or proper parental guidance.
I understand the protests regarding the death of an innocent black man at the hands of a racist cop. This doesn't give the people the right though to go and cause mayhem where other innocent people are killed in the process. Two wrongs do not make a right. I have seen individuals beaten up for just walking in the street but no it wasn't just that, it was on skin colour. This is not going to fix things, but make things far worse.
There have been videos of people walking down the street and then being asked to go down on one knee. What is shocking is people are actually doing it and have no pride or self worth in themselves. If that happened to me I would be insulted and most likely severely injure the person asking me to do it. I think it is insulting and uncalled for and is taking this whole campaign way too far.
The movement for Black Lives Matter is racist in itself as every life should matter and not just black ones. I have said before I have lived on both sides of the fence with Apartheid and now Apartheid in reverse in South Africa and to be honest there is no difference. Both regimes work on hatred and no one can say there is no hatred. Anything that rules in favour of one race over another is racist.
I have been called a racist in the past yet I am far from it and I find it degrading,not humiliating when it happens. I know the person who raises it first is the racist as it should never happen and enter their minds if they weren't. If you are comfortable with yourself what have you got to be apologetic about?
The Police Forces around the world need to stay strong for everyone else's sake and I mean the leadership. It is as though everyone is scared of the press and social media as that is what the real weapon is right now. This has gone way too far and about time the military was called in and to take safety catches off. This is for the rioters and law breakers and not peaceful marchers. Warnings need to be released first and then there are no comebacks. Forget rubber bullets and tear gas as the safety of the people is more important than a few thousand trouble makers as they can just be added to the Covid-19 stats for all I care.
