The past couple of months we have witnessed numerous reports of police officers being caught on camera shooting or harassing unarmed black men. There are some in the black community that are outraged at the police attitude when it comes to dealing with black people –particularly black men. What we are witnessing from these shootings are white officers having a shoot-first mentality when it comes to black men. The attitude that white officers have toward people of color in this country is from the doctrine of White Supremacy.
White Supremacy is the belief that white people are inherently superior to other races, specifically the black race and therefore, should politically, socially, and economically rule non-whites.
Black people need to learn that rioting and looting are counter-productive to their fight for justice. I understand that they hurt and frustrated at the system, at the same time the actions of a few are hindering the process of the desired outcome for change in the legal and justice system in this country. The terrible actions of a few blacks give fuel to the white supremacists that they have to go out and restore order. When there is rioting and looting, the number one priority is the restoration of order. The call for justice will never be heard if there are rioting and looting the only reaction they will get from those that are in power are police with a white supremacist attitude.
They want the rioting and looting so they can show it live around the world, and it justifies white supremacists going in to restore order by any means necessary. Black people have to be smarter than this. The cause of the problem is “White Supremacy,” but blacks have to learn to fight the mindset of the white supremacist effectively. They will continue to defeat blacks because we react with emotions rather than responding with an effective approach.
The solution to this is blacks need to become educated on the legal system in this country and abroad. They must begin circulating their dollars in the black community before spending it out of the community its called economic empowerment. Stop looking for the Democrats to save them. There has to be black representation in all parties, but blacks must have an agenda and use their voting power to their advantage.
Stop giving Democrats 95% of the black vote and they give back crumbs. The Black Community must begin to chip away at the white supremacist attitude. White Supremacy has to die in order for humanity to live.
