DAY 10

Write about something for which you feel strongly

This is a tough one. I feel strongly about one thing but I seem to always talk about it on this blog. Love it or hate it, I’m going to talk about the police and racism. I talk about it a lot I guess because a lot of times a lot of the shit they do goes unnoticed by others. I wish there was some way you can have police fired for shooting down people who didn’t pose as a threat.

It doesn’t seem like suing them does anything. Most time they justify their actions as reasonable. If roles reversed I would get a life sentence for half the things they do. Then most feel as though there are good cops out there. But where? The good don’t speak so I start to look at them as bad too. I’m a black poet that would on any day speak about the violence portrayed by people that look like me but name one cop that will say that this cop is wrong for shooting a man 55 times while he’s sleeping in a car. Name one? Oh, right it’s reasonable because there was a gun in sight my fault. *Sarcasm. Name one that will defend a family being harassed by two cops for a toy doll. Or how about one that will defend a cop saying a kid was running from them and shot himself in the back of the head. Or how about when a cop tells you to turn off your car and in the same breath yells he got a gun. Name one? If you don’t speak on it then your part of the problem.

I know there’s going to be a comment that I delete that says something stupid like black people kill each other too. No shit Sherlock. But comparing two situations doesn’t justify a cop shooting a man down. While attempting to wake him up. Who do you call when the police are the threat?

Nobody. I often read blogs and other sources where they state cops shoot white people too. Well, we have a common enemy. Now what?

Post some words of wisdom that speak to you.

Your comfort zone should be like staying at a hotel meaning it should be temporary. Because if you want to reach your goal, then you have to leave that temporary space.

I know I wrote it but it still speaks volumes. Because it’s something I struggle with. My comfort zone is like my toxic soul mate that’s no good for me, but I stay with her because I have gotten use to her and change is the one I really want. But I’m too shy to ever partake in her.

Share something you struggle with

Talking in front of a lot of people. When around a smaller group of people that I’m familiar with I could talk all day. But when it’s more than them I’m quiet as a mouse. That’s something I have struggled with since I was a little kid.

Quick post but it’s for the challenge. Expect another post later. But for now, view my previous posts. Like and leave comments below.
