Well hello fellow zobopians! Yep, I’m still blogging! It’s still 2016 in the 21st century and I’m still waiting for my 2001 space odyssey. We’re 15 years overdue for it! Oh well, on to pressing matters on Earth.
Black lives haven’t mattered since…the mid-1990’s. I blame the Zero-Tolerance policies of those 1990’s. Instead of sending Black students to the principal’s office, and calling the parent(s), they’re sent to the police station. Instead of suspending Black students, with a crap-load of homework to be completed upon returning, they’re expelled from the school never to return. [Good luck you charter schools.]
Yeah…I don’t think Black Lives Matter. In this world Freedom without Security is useless. You can say #BlackLivesMatter all you want. We will always be looking over our shoulders for the rest of our lives.
Black lives, obviously, don’t matter when lives are being lost everyday. When someone gets killed by police who intentionally sought to deprive someone of their constitutional rights — you can’t get justice! When someone gets killed by police due to incompetence, bad training or mistakes — you can’t get justice!
You can’t win for losing your lives!
P.S. : In 1857, Chief Justice Roger Taney declared that, black men “had no rights which the white man was bound to respect.” Like I said above, Freedom without Security is useless.
Until neXt time…
