I like and understand this Vanity Fair post. I absolutely get their fear and anger, but I don’t get their dismissal of white people trying.
They are trying!! Give them some credit please. It’s better than the alternative.
Yes. We have a long way to go for equality, peace, true beneficial cohabitation between human beings of all different variations.
But let’s not dismiss those that are trying to help, those that are trying to understand, those that are trying to make a difference.
We have to start to bridge these gaps somewhere. Let’s all have compassion and acceptance for each other and help walk each other home.
Barr saying police racism isn’t a thing is easy to do when you’ve never been on the wrong side of that transaction. So I find his opinion moot and consider it decisive and hurtful. To not acknowledge the truth many people have to live with on a daily basis because it simply doesn’t apply to you; it’s beyond incompassionate, it’s downright cruel.
Like Pence saying he doesn’t believe racism even exists (not in those exact words) but in using the words he did to defend not saying “black lives matter”.
I pity these man. They obviously are trying to run an agenda of hate for some reason. God save their souls before it’s too late and while they can still be a champion for true change and compassion in this world.
God bless everyone!
