SOMEONE’S GOTTA GO: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN PEOPLE SEE THEIR CULTURE DYING

Brown Concrete Post

“When one must go.”


making room means one must go

We all would like to think that we live in a world where we can all live harmoniously. But the reality is, is that it goes against everything we are as creatures on this planet. There have to come a time, where decisions are going to be made and it is going to affect some people. Well, what happens when you belong to a group of people where that could really hurt you? Meaning, an environment is fine until people on one or multiple sides feel slighted. That feeling like your culture is diminishing, then there will be problems. And you’re probably wondering how something like that could happen, but it’s reality. It could turn into a reality without even trying.

it’s a numbers game

Let’s say 10 million live in a city that is only capable of housing 5 million. And on top of that, 5 groups of people of different cultures. Then the city has a decision to make as it pertains to start scaling back the numbers. And if the city is unable to build outward, then steps are taken to lighten the load. Will it observing which culture matters? No so much so, but it will involve finances, education, crime, and poverty levels to name a few. As people get weened-out, someone’s group will suffer the most. And that group will be risk of losing the identity of themselves. But it’s all about the numbers. Someone will be effected on a great scale once you take into consideration these non-social factors. And there will be complaint, but what can you do. You may risk on the other end forcing out the group contributing the most, to appease the group lagging behind.

 can we save ’em

The reality is, you  can, but it is up to the group’s next generation to do so. Because it’s only important to that group, the preservation of that group. So if there is anyone that needs saving, it has to come from that group of people. Never depend on another group for the preservation of your group. Because the only important existence of humanity is the continuation of it, not a specific group of people.

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.
