Good morning my people. Welcome to my very first #blog post. Yay! Well, let’s get into it.
Although this applies to all, this particular topic is more geared towards my black and brown brothers and sisters. Why are we absolutely enraged when #police enact their “Blue Wall” in the aftermath of these tragedies? For those who don’t know what that is, its when the Good Cops don’t step up and say anything against the bad after they’ve committed an injustice of some kind. We as a community gather in the streets, file complaints, etc but….. Isn’t the “Blue Wall” code the same thing as our “No Snitching” code we use? Think about this for a second, just like they protect pieces of s**t on the force when they shouldn’t, we protect pieces of s**t in our neighborhood. But why though? What’s the difference between the two? How is one deplorable in our eyes but the other is completely acceptable? Furthermore, just like we group all #cops as scumbags when they refuse to step up, how do you think they’re looking at us when we do it. Let’s say you know someone that has shot, robbed, or raped someone in your neighborhood. The police come and question you about the crime and you refuse to step up. Haven’t you just lowered yourself to the same level as the person that did the crime itself? Protecting bad people is protecting bad people no matter how you look at it.
