With regards to what’s been happening in this world lately. I am broken-hearted over the two cop brutality cases. Shooting in a car with a 4-year–old in the backseat is SICK! I cried over both cases. It is clear that both were brutality cases.
That being said, I cried over the cops who were murdered and injured FOR NO REASON! Yeah, there are always bad cops but the majority of them are GOOD and risk their lives to protect us! Don’t take it out on them!
FINALLY, peace begins at HOME! Stop spanking and punishing children! There’s an epidemic of corporal punishment in the black community in combination with the fact that they don’t have dads around and usually live in poverty. See Beating Black Kids for more info. Teaching all children empathy and respect through respectful parenting would do A LOT to stop violence! Also, stopping them from playing violent video games and watching violent stuff would also help to stop violence as children get desensitized to the violence.
And social media seems to desensitized us because we’re behind screens and feel a sense of anonymity.
This ISN’T a Democratic or Republican issue. This isn’t a gun issue! This is a HUMAN issue and we need to come together to fix it. ALL LIVES MATTER!!
