I am rooting for this guy:
but I do not have enough faith in Americans yet to count out these shitheads:
This is already a lukewarm civil war and Pumpkin is stoking the wrong side.
And let’s just remember – the “Bad Apple” phrase comes from the truism, “One bad apple spoils the whole barrel.” Which is exactly true – a rotting apple releases massive amounts of ethylene gas, which in turn causes the other apples exposed to it to rot faster.
OK, who still thinks policing in this country is not racist? Doesn’t even have to be in the South.
Read this story from Michigan. Read how that one officer was so annoyed when he found out it was a poodle.
I am also reading reports from Black men of being stopped recently… repeatedly… for driving under the speed limit. 65 in a 70 is now “obstructing traffic.” Yet another hazard of DWB. Driving While Black.
The potential for harassment is infinite. And when you are a Black person in the USA being harassed by police, harassment will too often turn fatal.
This country was built on unconscious racism. We have to consciously decide to take it into another direction.
