Cause or Convenience?

The latest hoopla consuming the news includes groups of “minorities” taking action and demanding rights, which almost always takes away the rights of the people they are demanding from. The black men who are randomly killing white policemen is one example I’m talking about. And the news guy who kills fellow news anchor and cameraman in protest to his unfair treatment as a black, gay male. These people who commit crimes have legitimate gripes and anger. Every human experiences bullying and threats at some point in life. Heck, getting through middle and high school provides training on getting through those moments successfully. So what causes folks to snap, commit a crime and think that is acceptable in society? Television shows are one culprit. The main culprit is just the plain evil nature of man.

When we get to the point where we feel the anger boil and our brain goes into over-time pumping adrenaline which causes us to action, we have choices. Most of these choices are learned behaviors from home. If not learned at home, we learn from our environment. Killing someone who angers you to that point seems like an easy fix to the problem. Look at the news today. Did the problem go away?

Great men and women in history have made changes and their voices heard by getting their voices heard, their message out, and support. Martin L. King is a wonderful example of changing cultural norms and making a name for himself. He had a cause. He worked peacefully many years in order to make his cause a reality. These most recent folks are just looking for convenience. Getting rid of their immediate problem and keeping evil relevant in the news. They are wimps! They are simple-minded idiots whose names I will not remember.

 

“Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable… Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals.”

Martin Luther King, Jr.
