RDP Monday: IMPETUOUS
I’ve seen it in the comment sections of blogs, I’ve seen it on FB, I’ve heard it on the train and on the buses.
” Why are people making such a big deal out of racism now? It’s always been around. Obviously it’s all politics. But it has to stop. People have to tone it down. It’s just so negative.”
I’ve actually got an answer for that.
People have been passionate about it, people have been beat and shot and not hired for jobs or fired from jobs because of it and they cried out for justice and relief from it literally from day one.
They’ve NEVER not talked about it because people have been living it.
And maybe you missed it because you weren’t listening.
Or maybe did hear it and just didn’t care.
At any rate, no you don’t get to tell anyone to tone it down or not be so loud or to stop protesting.
Whatever bubble you were in before, may you find it and float away to your happy place:
Where seldom is heard
A discouraging word
And the skies are not cloudy all day
