I don’t get it.
Why is America being led to be more prejudiced by our media? By our politicians? By our actors?
BBC reported that an actor apologized to our first lady for offending her. His off hand joke was not directed at the first lady. It was directed at the ‘white’ contenders.
All of a sudden it is a crime to be white in America.
Maybe the writer of the BBC report wasn’t thinking. Maybe the actor didn’t quite say things that way. But, the Mexican guy who shot the black kid is being rolled over the coals because of race.
Murder is murder, if what is alleged is true. The charge is not “He hurt a black kid.” It is he murdered in the second degree a teenager.
Why does our leadership want to encourage such outrageous societal woes? Haven’t we enough scars as a country that we don’t need to rub acid on our country’s wounds?
Honestly? I believe our leaders are prejudiced. If you see prejudice everywhere around you, I only see three real options. One, there is prejudice everywhere. I am at least one exception. Or, two, you are a little crazy. Or, three, you are projecting your feelings on others.
The last one is usually the problem in any disagreement, in my opinion, regardless of race or religion.
