So last week, The Supreme Court passed a law legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states here in the land of the good ol’ Red White and Blue! Well if that wasn’t good news then I don’t know what is.
But lets look past the colorful distraction & pay close attention to some issues that have been outshone by gay rights…which I feel is more of a political move than civil rights one:
Just recently a church was shot up by an individual who’s motive was racism.
California passed a law stating vaccinations were mandatory in schools despite religious beliefs.
Washington state was engulfed in wildfires.
A Carolina court refused to remove a confederate flag while the biblical content was thought to be offensive.
Convicted murderers escaped a prison & remained on the loose until one was fatally shot & the other apprehended.
A slew of reported & unknown black murders were going on and continue to be going on all across America.
So much else is going on but what really grinds my gears is the constant comparison of gay rights to civil rights. Not saying either group has the right to be discriminated against because no hate crime should be tolerated.
I’m sorry but blacks in the US have been enslaved, brutally murdered & targeted for much longer than any gay person. I may be an advocate for gay rights but at the end of the day, a gay person can conceal their identity & stay in the closet but being black in this country is something you cannot hide/change.
The genocide & holocaust of slaves & their descendants not only continues to this day but also in other parts of the world…and has so for centuries. Even our native continent, the birthplace of creation has been raped & its natural resources constantly depleted.
My aim in this blog is not to discredit one plight for another but to shed light that black lives simply don’t matter…
Well Until Next Time Kiddies…
