AGENDA CONNECTION: AIMING TO FIGURE OUT WHY WE TAKE CERTAIN STANCE

“I wish I felt what they felt.”


In society today, we all have these stance we take in regards to feeling a certain sentiment. And they are stance that people are so passionate about. But are all stance taken justifiable in the our spread of it? Are there times where a stance is taken and we should disregard the stance? When I hear about a message being spread; the awareness for an issue in society, I have a series of questions. First is why are people taking the stance, who is truly benefiting, and what is the solution? But a question that no ne seems to ask is of themselves. What if I were that person fighting for a particular cause. Sounds simple, yet so many don’t even bother.

Now, what I gain from hearing this all is, some days I wish I were a member of a certain fight, or even go as far as morphing into the bodies of the people. Then I could see their real sentiment. Because we have these editing systems as it pertains to how we converse. Yet the sentiment is something totally different than how we talk. Being able to place myself in the life of the person, I could see why they follow a movement. See, I pride myself on being a more transparent person, but it’s hard to get people to be just as honest. It’s hard to get people to move past the violin playing in a conversation.

And what do I mean by violin playing? I mean asking someone a question and then, you hear them playing a fine tune around the language. But why do we do it? We do it because we have formed these coalitions to take on anyone that says anything honest. So we teach other to be dishonest. And we remain silent as these groups take power. And by the time we have had enough, it’s too late, we have lost our voices. So I want to know, what is the end game of a lot of these causes? They say they are hoping to accomplish something, but are they really looking for a solution? Because a solution would mean dismantling the organization. And I don’t see that happening anytime soon.

See, in the end, I think that there are real causes. But with these causes is a certain segment of the population that go overboard. Why, well power corrupt that’s why. When a person takes your money in school, the bully won’t say thanks for Monday lunch. They take lunch the rest of the week. So even with an agenda that may be in the best interest of a group, we have to also make sure they are not dipping into their popularity in the process.

A LONG STANDING DIVIDE: HOW POLICE AND COMMUNITY BICKERING EFFECT THE UNITED STATES

Related image

“The divide that can cause a collapse.”


In the recent years the topic of police brutality has come up in America. But on the other side police advocates are stating that they are just doing their jobs. Now my question is, is this really a problem, or because we have so much social media access, it’s bigger now? Because this has always been going on (the relationship between the community and police), but now it’s bigger because we can instantly see the problem. Now, previously I said community. The bad blood is not in just any community, it’s the predominantly Black community. This has been a long standing relationship in this country for decades. Longer than I have been alive, my parents, and grandparents.

But my topic today is not to discuss why it goes on or who is to blame. My topic today covers how it could ultimately effect the country. You might ask how so; how could the community and police relationship effect America? Image result for criminalityFor starters, it will give rise to the criminality in society. Once the police become pariahs, then the criminal element is able to take more control. With the relationship fragmented, they have more voice. Because the community’s way of punishing the cops is to make their job hard by not cooperating. And the police become fed up and allow the criminals to reign supreme over law abiding citizens.

And think about what it does to a younger generation when watching all this television coverage. A age group is growing up witnessing killings before their very eyes. Now, they will grow to have an even higher level of disdain for the police than previous generations. Just think about it, posted videos of the shootings on top of a 24 hour news cycle. We are engineering a Related imagegeneration where you are made to fear those sent to protect you. Imagine growing up a young Black male right now in elementary school. Nothing but live coverage of Black males shot by cops. The respect and trust in the law will diminish. And you’ll create a new era of rogue individuals in our society.

Lastly, what about keeping our borders safe in America. We live in a country where terrorist threats from outside are all around us. So when we have in-fighting, it can put us in a very vulnerable situation. Police officers are our first line of defense in case of a terrorist attack. So if the community and police are fighting that is an in for outsiders. For instance, while the people and police fight, the real threat could be operating within the community. We are so programmed in America to watch each other, we’re not watching outsiders. What’s more interesting is that outsiders see us as more of a collective than we see ourselves.

In the end, having fighting between the community and the police is more of a problem than issues within. We have to to now make sure that people from outside don’t use this against us. Because no matter what the fight, there can’t be fighting between the citizens, and the men and women hired to protect them. This nation becomes too susceptible to homegrown and outside potential threats. So what is the solution because this is not some fly by night problem. It has been a long-standing issue for generations. But whatever the case may be, continuing will create a divide that only hurts the people and law enforcement. Thus giving rise to real outside threats.

HARD TO FOLLOW HYPOCRISY FOR JUSTICE: THOUGH I DISAGREE, HARD TO FULLY FIGHT TRUMP

Image result for trump protesters

“Do you not like, nor hate him either?”


Since the election back in November of 2016 for President Donald J. Trump, people have been doing everything from debating to protesting. I myself have written a few posts on Trump as well. But what I have not done was write from the perspective of being on his side. Most people would say, “How could you be on his side?” And they would be right to an extent. There are things he says and done that delve into petty. But when I see the types of people coming after Trump, it puts you in a strange position. You have so many awful people, or people who never question the awful behavior in their own environment question Trump.

What do I mean by strange position? This is what I mean. When I hear people make statements regarding Trump, then turn around and behave that same way, it really hurts their argument. It’s hard to go along with someone who is behaving like the man they rail against the most. So, who would I be referring to as it pertains to people who fight the hardest? I am referring to athletes, entertainers, politicians, business executives, and newscasters. People who have just as much, if not more influence than Trump exemplify their own poor behavior.

Who would fall into the category of what I am talking about. On of the groups is the fashion industry. Trump’s daughter Tiffany attended a fashion show awhile back. Patrons refused to sit next to her amidst her father’s comments about women. Understandably so, until you delve deeper into the fashion industry. When you see how they have had such a negative impact on young women. Everything from telling young women who are already underweight they need to lose more, to being forced to create more diversity with it’s advertising. And still, the attempt is made to further hold on to such principles in their industry.

So when you hear people who themselves are so immoral and unethical, it’s hard to only point the finger at Trump. Or better yet when NBA player Lebron James states there is no room for the type of locker room talk that Trump was engaging in. Then you say to yourself, “Really, now athletes have become the moral compass for how women should be treated. An over 90% divorce rate, mainly due to infidelity. Domestic abuse cases, murder, attempted murder, rapes, and now they are all of a sudden the voice for the women’s cause. It really makes it hard to hear these types of individuals plead their case. And still, there is another group of people that go hard and that is the entertainers.

Entertainers have been poking fun and protesting themselves against Donald Trump. But every award season actors and actresses take to the stage demanding higher pay for women and expressing a lack of diversity as it pertains to minorities. It is hard attack someone at a restaurant for poisoning another patron’s food, when your own meal is being poisoned at the dinner table and you eat it like it taste delicious. And yet, you never hear about them out a studio executive for their practices. All you hear is, “the industry” is a certain way. But the industry is made up of people, who are the people. If we attack the president, I also want to know the names of these bosses as well.

And that’s my problem, why I may disagree, but it’s hard for me to fully follow the pack. There is just way too many hypocrites fighting the president. Too many wanna be righteous people who are not really being righteous. They talk about togetherness and are some of the main people pushing against their own agenda. Mass media has this narrative they push as well, but won’t admit it because it boost ratings. See, in the end, everyone want to act like a martyr, until the one you stand by does that thing that has you protesting. We will find every reason to denounce the opposition, but fight for the wrong on our own side. So it forces me, to now stand behind those I wouldn’t normally stand behind because of the dishonesty. And the more we are dishonest the more Trump types will come into power.
