Most everyone in the country is suffering now, some more than others no matter where you stand. Many of us have lost people we consider brothers and some have truly lost family. Please take a moment to consider a few things of utmost importance.
There are people who are throwing gasoline on fires. They are staging marches and hailing the murder of people calling for more. This is not solving anything.
What it is doing is causing further tensions, preventing emergency services from being available to people who need them. Blocking roadways is not peaceful but deadly to people who need help as quickly as possible denying them emergency assistance.
There are people who are taking advantage of the situation and blaming guns to advance a political agenda. Guns did not do this, people did.
Some people are pointing fingers at whites, blacks or blues. NONE of this helps. Please don’t say that there needs to be reflection on one person more than another because of a skin color or what a person does as a profession.
Be careful what you take away from media now, they have done more to fuel the hatred without presenting facts than anyone. Their interest is in getting stories out fast, getting “the scoop” and making a long lasting impression so you go back for more.
While that makes for wonderful revenues in advertising dollars, it does not help the situation at all. It brings false narratives quickly without facts that sometimes take months to get through. It has ALWAYS been this way. That is the justice system and it may not be the best but it is what we have.
It works. But the results after media have tainted peoples minds may not be what they are looking for as a result. Therefore more hatred becomes the norm and the media does not have the ability to set the record straight in peoples minds once they have been made up.
There is a better way
The WideBlueLine has always had a mission to bring the Community and Police together and while reading over so much news there are two excellent stories that were found among so much tragedy.
The first was of two well-known icons who decided it is time to stand up and be REAL community leaders. They called upon their communities to break down the barriers between community and Police and toss out color.
They were Snoop Dogg and California Rapper “The Game”
They staged a march to the L.A.P.D. Headquarters. They asked for real men to join them and to put all colors away being unified as just Americans.
They posted the following:
- losangelesconfidentialOperation H.U.N.T Meet NOW at Joe’s auto park parking 1221 west 3rd street Los Angeles California 90017
Calling: ALL AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN, MEXICAN AMERICAN MEN & any other RACE of REAL MEN with heart to stand with us today & walk peacefully to the LAPD headquarters. [LEAVE ALL WOMEN & CHILDREN AT HOME… THIS IS OUR MISSION FOR THEM]
Do not: bring any weapons or anything illegal. Do not come high or belligerent.. We don’t need any HOT HEADS or anyone there for the wrong reasons… We will stand as we are, UNIFIED. I’m calling ALL GANGS, ALL RACES, ALL GROWN MEN affiliated or not & WE WILL STAND UNIFIED tomorrow !!!! Our numbers are all the weapons we need !!! We do not need to be dumb, retarded or uncivilized today… ALL WE NEED IS EACH OTHER… I will not lead any of you into a trap !!!!! Objective: to make the Californian government & it’s law branches aware that from today forward, we will be UNIFIED as minorities & we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us !!! Let’s erase the fear of one another on both sides & start something new here in the city of Los Angeles, a city we all love & share !
There are many things that have to be done to rectify this situation that has plagued us for hundreds of years & UNIFICATION is the 1st step !!! Again, I’m asking for ALL of my AFRICAN AMERICAN, MEXICAN AMERICAN & any other AMERICAN who has the heart to STAND WITH US to meet us at the above address & take the 1st step into altering our future for our children & our FAMILIES….I LOVE EVERY ONE OF YOU & WE OWE IT TO OURSELVES & OUR FAMILIES TO BE MEN & TAKE A STAND MY BROTHERS.. THE TIME IS NOW – The Game 📸 @derekdidit
Another way to work on this is one person at a time. When it happens, SHOW it off.
Please lets us know so we can tell more people about it as well!
Just like this one entry we managed to find.
The WBL doesn’t care if you are Black, White, Brown, Yellow, Blue or some other color. If you are being judged because of that color you are or you are judging based on that color you are thinking racist.
It is time to put that behind, remember, under that color is blood, bone, tissue, a heart and most of all a spirit. That spirit is what makes a person not what covers it. We should not care what clothes the spirit wears, how the spirit walks, talks or chooses to expresses itself as long as it does no harm to others.
We are Americans. We all live in one land, under one flag together. We share a common bond and should start acting that way. End the division, reach out and embrace others.
Do you agree? If so please share this!
