One more day of this painful watching of people at their worst is going to make me nuts. What in the Himmell is going on? Men want to not be men. Some want to be women some goats or infants. Women want to be men, children, unicorns whatever. The queer want parades to show themselves off as..well..queer. Anyone refusing to watch or bake them a cake gets sued. Losing their businesses, homes and property. Nobody should ever be offended, oh my!
All these groups are developing weird, dangerous, scary reputations. Having looked I can not find a good one, a good reputation anywhere. A reputation is the combined views, and opinions of another’s actions. It’s a noun. A thing by which we often base our judgements .
Black people suffer from the reputations of other black people’s actions. Because as is our nature we remember the worse things, the more potent, the shocking or salacious behavior. Hardly ever the good. Not first at least. People who apparently performed acts anathema to good works. Have provided the world with a fear creating reputation.
Sadly regular gentle everyday God-fearing, hard-working, black people can’t escape it. Just about every description, caption of the hard core angry violent black, criminals, includes the color of their skin, black. So now, it has become subliminal in everyone, blacks are to be feared. It is their reputation.
We need to watch our language! The media needs to stop depicting all of us by the color of our skin! They continually describe everyone by some biased moniker that they want to get out there, for viewers, for more subscriptions, ad revenue, etc. In other words it’s for greed. But by putting so much importance on ones skin color, ethnicity, a gender, a profession or political stance these things take on an importance that is not deserved. It just focuses tighter on the issue the writer has decided you should know. Because well, it is important. No it is not.
Why not eliminate the adjectives of color or race from the media. The media are the main form of reputation makers, so let’s start there. Not enough trouble in their world? Now they are trying to make us bad because we were born white…This is so counter productive, It is pure evil. We do not have to go along with them or the radiculous ideas they try to plant in us.
Why not just say for instance in a news clip, a man or a woman, from anywhere, did this or that, to someone else?. Eliminate the use of color or race in descriptions.! They are not needed. We are not the police who may have to have a full complete description, but the rest of us do not. Not today or tomorrow. We can describe people by age, height weight, hair color complexions, nose sizes etc. Chinese, Asian, White, Black, Yellow, Purple, are not required in describing anyone or anything. Well almost anything, like nations, we need to name that characteristic, like China rules the Chinese. And COVID 19 that’s from China. Their reputation is not good now either, nor was it yesterday.
So I am advocating censorship? Well sort of.
Today the violence perpetuated by the media’s encouragement is radical, ugly, tragic and is further ruining reputations.
The looters, thieves, violent, fire causing, screaming chaos building people have ruined the reputation of decent protests and protesters. No good message was allowed to escape due to these anarchistic rioters . The Association with those of bad reputation has obscured the message. That this entire country already knew and agreed with you on ,regarding the tragic death of George Floyd. That was prior to the rioting of your protesting buddies ! Ruined reputation of grieving protestors. Obscured the reality of the event. Changed the focus.. We are known by the people we surround ourselves with.
