LAND POLICE: WHO ALLOWS WHO TO SAY WHAT

“Why do we judge others by the stuff we say ourselves?”


Don’t say the N word, don’t say the R word, don’t say the C word. Over the recent years, the use of language has been a topic of discussion. Who can say what and how they can say it has caused many debates. We give passes to certain people to use certain language and not others. We chastise one person for voicing their opinion, then turn around and say something just as inflammatory. Yet no one sees it that way because we all want to have our say. Everyone wants to say that one magical word that will turn everyone around. But it never quite pans out that way. Well why, why have we become such a duplicitous society lately?

One of the reasons we give passes to speak for certain people and not others is because we are not a together nation. If the nation came together against the sensitivity, you would eliminate a lot of the confusion right off the back. Because in society today, we have this really loud minority group that does not represent the slightest percentage of the masses. But since their voices are so loud, we give them a pass. Yet if the masses stood up against the sensitivity, and didn’t give people this pass, it would cease. But are there any other reasons why language has been a problem in America?

Another reason is that we don’t want people to see the real us. It’s easy to look at a public figure and judge. But could you do it; could you live your life in the open 24/7, not say one word to tick off anyone? The answer is no, it’s not possible. Why isn’t it possible? The reason being is that people just need someone or something to be made about in life. You could post on social media, “Good morning, boy do I feel good.” You’ll get positive feedback, yet you’ll still get a wave of disdain. But the people very rarely come out as their real selves. They usually hide behind a private account or an Avatar photo. Now is there more that has led to the sensitivity?

A major problem for our phoniness in America today is from the idea of policing  ourselves. But not policing ourselves in a positive manner. I’m talking people who want to find any little thing you say or do on camera or any other audio/video recording device, then hurt your livelihood. We have become so satisfied with watching people spiral out of control that it becomes almost like a form of entertainment. We like to see the spiral so we can say we witnessed the greatest show on Earth. In the end, we will continue to play these games until we live in a system where you can’t say anything. By that time it will be too late to push back against.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
