How I Got Into a Race Debate, Part 2

If you read last week's post, then you know what to expect. 

The gist of this debate revolved around police brutality and citizen responsibility. The image used to begin the debate was posted on an Instagram account created by a "conscious" brother who supports black unity and power. The person that I and another user debated with will be referred to as "@j".

@j is an 18-year-old girl that attends a high school in Arizona. (Baby girl should probably turn off her location function or something, I know where she gets her Starbucks from now.)To be honest, I'm really not sure how she found the picture in the first place, but, whatever.  

Since I do have an idea of what law enforcement goes through, thanks to former cops in my family, I asked myself, "Does SHE know what officers go through?"

Things escalated quickly...

And even though nobody asked for my opinion, I had to tell @j what was on my mind.

I am forever agreeing to disagree.

You get the idea.

One thing that I must commend everyone on who contributed to this debate was that they had an opinion. Having thoughts on important issues that affect the nation as a whole is a critical part of our rights as citizens; it's sad to think that there are some who truly don't care which direction the country is headed in.
