Occasionally I put out a few simple facts on social media, especially when it comes to law enforcement overreach. It is no secret I am not a fan of the double standard of police overreach and community abuse, but I try and express it a logical manner (most of the time).
Anyway, I digress. How does a discussion of police overreach and victimless crimes get diverted into a discussion of illegal immigration when that had nothing to do with it? How do you believe in justice for some but not for all, especially simply because of skin color? How do you get to cherry pick who is subject to the protection of the constitution? How do you put out statistics that even a 6th grader can prove wrong and call it fact?
Memes are not a political discussion, and neither is name calling.
It is very difficult to have healthy and positive discussions with people right now, and almost impossible on social media.
How did we come so far with rudeness? How did we sink so low?
This is not a blame game, but a call to action! Remember who we all are! Remember that we all have rights and are entitled to the same protections equally in the eyes of the law. Also, not all laws are just.
Just a bit of a rant. #courtesy #politics #truth #civility #education #justice
