When you’re in the process of tearing down monuments that remind you of badder sadder days in the USA, Don’t Forget the Vietnam Memorial, the World War II Memorial, the Holocaust Museum, the CIA torture Museum.
Nobody wins wars. Everybody loses.
Don’t make this only about Africa’s fight in the USA and elsewhere. Remember, elsewhere isn’t where you’re allowed to act freely.
Africa still buys, sells and steals slaves. Nobody is free in Africa. Africans invented slavery if we are to believe that humans grew first on that continent.
If you want to get rid of slavery, then you must get rid of all the tribes – everywhere.
The Native Americans have to go too. They have a big slave history.
A black slave isn’t any more worthy than any other color slave of any other tribe.
Remember also that achieving success through fear eventually turns into failure.
Don’t Forget Mount Rushmore.
In fact, the entire human race must go. You’re all slave owners. You enslave, torture and slaughter billions of members of the Animal Kingdom every day of every year. You are a slave master. You hold prejudicial and discriminatory court against all those you consider the underlings in the kingdom. You’re a dictator who thirsts for the taste of blood and flesh – theirs.
There is no issue of moral equivalency here, since the other animals do you no harm. You go looking for them, because you’re too lazy to grow your own food – you steal from them their lives. Then you brag about it. How good they tasted. You keep their heads as trophies – monuments on your walls or as pictures that you show everyone to let others know your power so they too will fear you.
Yeah, but I ate him.
That’s supposed to make me feel better?
Don’t Forget Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial DOWN.
When somebody starts talking about moral equivalency, all they’re really saying is that their motives for lighting you on fire are better than your motives for lighting them on fire. You both use the same violent methods, but you’re right and they’re wrong.
It’s best you backtrack to the MORALITY OF THE METHOD used to achieve your goal.
Moral equivalency talk doesn’t belong in the conversation until you address the Morality Of The Method. If your method is as bad as theirs is, then you are as bad as they are. Period.
The ends justifying the means hasn’t worked long-term – ever. It only works short-term, before the problem arises once more and will keep rising, since you can’t kill a problem. A problem must be solved absent fear and absent violence.
What blacks and whites consider violence differs dramatically, depending upon who is the target and who is delivering the message.
Don’t forget Nelson Mandela the King of the tire necklaces. Take his statues DOWN! NOW.
He freed himself from slavery only to become a slave owner. How often? Every time. It happens wherever and whenever the methods used are the same violent, horrific methods as the opposition. The methods change you, they do. Either way they change you.
Did you learn from Syria? Tell me who is the good and the bad? You cannot answer accurately without lying or without responding like an ignorant fool.
You become the offender or you liberate by living the peace, by being the peace, not by manipulating somebody into giving you their candy without having to punch them in the face for it.
What’s the matter with your brain?
Don’t Forget that statue you have of yourself in your mind. Yes, it’s time.
I’m not going to respect them unless they respect me? Who are you kidding? You don’t know how to respect someone.
So how do I do it?
Are you sure you want to eat the soul of the animal you murdered? Killed? Slaughtered? Had someone snuff him/her for you? Because you don’t like the gore you prefer eating it all cleaned up?
