Commentary: Hating the Stupid Hating

by Placerville Newswire / Sep 24, 2016 / comments

By Michelle Toner -- A black woman posts a video of a police officer raping a female inmate. The black woman says in response to this...."I hate y'all I hate y'all!! My response to her was, " you're going to hate an entire race of people because of an individual?" Immediately I am accused of defending the Officer, and told I can't comment because I don't know what it's like to be black. Then I'm told by numerous people that they hate me just because I'm white.

I'm shocked at the pure hatred that's taking place in 2016. There's always been bigotry, but in my 51 years, I've never seen the sort of hatred that I see now. 

It's always been there but now it's...... I dunno, words fail. I can't seem to describe it. 

There's so much tension everywhere. And for what? The actions of a few in comparison to the thousands that aren't? Bad things have happened. Unconscionable things, but it happens to all of us. It happens to Hispanics, Muslims, Asians, and the Native Americans that nobody talks about. 

Anyone can be profiled. White Guy's with tattoos. It's not just a black thing..... but what do I know? Right? I'm white. 

I may be white, but I'm prolific in World History. This may come as a surprise but every nation has a dark past filled with racism and or slavery. 

Today, while you're espousing inequality and denouncing racism on your cell phones, modern day slaves are building your next model. All those cell phones used to record events that are further dividing people were made by slaves. How ironic. 

As long as people insist on using the past to excuse their behavior now, well then you better include all the other races and religions who suffered too. Wait, you didn't know other races suffered too? Yes, they have and still do. 

Have you ever thought about the food you eat? Did you know, in this country, modern day slaves are processing your food? Working for major companies that your Government/President gives tax breaks and subsidies to? Where's all that protest? Where's the anger? 

Sorry. Bad things happen to a lot of people, not just blacks. Americans are as stupid as sheep. They can't think for themselves. They have to rely on the media to be directed and told how to think. SMH. 

People are so stupid they don't even know why they hate. They follow with whatever feels good.... with what fits their own narrative, but they can't think. They don't want to. They're just that stupid.
