ferguson and beyond…

 

…the primary focus of conflict,
inequity and injustice,

in the United States of America,

at this moment,

is the conflict, inequity and injustice
inherent in the relationship,

between the African
American population,

and the police force throughout
the nation,

and it would appear,

that many liberal and progressive
Americans would believe,

that the police are either
the entire problem,

or the primary source of racial
inequity and injustice in America,

it would appear,

that many liberal and progressive
Americans would believe,

that the quality of life for
our African sisters and brothers,

will be significantly uplifted,

simply by addressing in
some manner,

the crimes, faults, bigotries and
abuses of individual police officers,

or, of the American police force
as a whole,

but listen here, sisters and brothers,

the justice or injustice of any war,

is not a simply a matter,

of the individual bigotry or brutality
of the soldiers on the battlefield,

and there is no manner by which it is
possible,

to select or train soldiers,

who will be just and
fair in the prosecution of a war,

that is unfair and
unjust by it’s very nature,

there is a long, cold and quiet war
being waged in America,

and African Americans have been
long suffering,

as primary victims of this quiet war,

but police officers in America
are merely soldiers on a battlefield,

and the relationship between the black
population and police in America,

is merely a symptom of political and
economic injustice and corruption,

far beyond the control or limits,

of individual police officers,
or the American police force itself,

if you want to lesson the suffering,

if you want to bring a greater
fairness and justice,

to Africans in America,

you need to look far beyond
the faults, failures and bigotries,

of police officers,

you need to look far beyond
the faults, failures and bigotries,

of the soldiers on the battlefield…
