Oh The Injustice Of Being African American :(

I have a question for all of you out there especially to those that aren’t

of an ethnic heritage.   Why do some of you hate on African American’s?

It seems to me that the good majority love to hate on us simply by the way we look!

African Americans rarely get a fair trial in the American justice system.  We seem to

have the worst stereotypes of any other ethnic minority with the exception of the Native American

culture.  Here are some that roll off the top of my head.

We are hyper sexual ( applies to both the men & women)

We woman could be walking down the street & strange men will pull over in their cars

assuming that the African American women are in the sex trade! 

African Americans are out to steal your purse ( this applies to black men or women)

You women out there it isn’t necessary to pull you purses close to your body, we aren’t after your

stupid purse.

African Americans are treated less than on bank loans

African Americans it is assumed by the White establishment that we have no money.  It doesn’t matter how nicely we are dressed

Which brings me to the next issue I have with the White establishment, I have a question.  Why when African Americans or any ethnic minority but especially African Americans, why do you insist on following us around dept stores or anywhere else?  I just would like to know this.  Cause whenever a rich White man or woman steals something it then gets buried under the rug & the person pays a minimal fine & that’s that!  Hmm unequal treatment based on race.   Happened to a well known local White female news anchor who was a straight up klepto.  A slap on the hand was all she got!

I would highly recommend to all of you out there to read up on Black History, okay?  African Americans are responsible for inventing a lot of the things that you use today.  Don’t believe me? then do some research.  The traffic lights that everyone uses at intersections nationwide is one of many….and hey I will provide you all with a complete blog of a list of inventions made by us.  So stay tuned for that.

Today I had a PTSD episode.  What was the episode you may or may not ask?  Well in case you haven’t read my blog PTSD August 6th, I endured the most painful, humiliating, experience in my whole life.  I’ve had a lifetime of painful experiences which of course no one gave a damn about, now another one in a very long list of pain.

You can read the blog if you care to. 

What drove me to write this blog was that I had called the Police Dept who took my crime report.  An officer called me, she listened to me, then proceeds to say to me that they’ve forwarded my report which I wrote in great detail everything that had happened over to the Prosecuting attorney.

And guess what?  The prosecuting attorney didn’t think that my report was worth the time!  These were the exact words out of the officers mouth.  Gee, thanks a lot Mr. D.A.  

Justice is REALLY blind when it comes to people of color now isn’t it?  That statue with the blind fold & the lop sided scales? Is sure lop sided for a reason!  The person who sculpted it must have been African American or some other ethnicity I feel.

I also have another question which most of you who bother to read will shy away from, however I don’t.  I simply cannot afford to. 

And the question is this:  How come African Americans get profiled & pulled over when we’re driving a nice car?  Racial profiling is what my point is.  I never understood that.

How come when any man or woman is in custody or stopped by the Police we get the most brutal treatment known to man?

Here are some examples:

Go to YouTube to further check my claims:

An African American woman in Seattle gets punched in the face by one of Seattle finest.

A Hispanic young man gets his head stomped, and gets racial slurs + threats yelled at him by a group of Seattle’s finest

Rodney King (No explanation needed)

Myself:  August 6th 2010 I’m riding an express bus headed out to my martial arts school when I have the “N” word screamed at me several times but that’s not all.  My life is threatened with a knife that the perpetrator may or may not have had on her person.  And the good ole Redmond Police Dept didn’t do a damn thing!  But hey what did I expect right?  Can’t expect a bunch of rednecks to do anything about a racial hate crime.  Not their problem right?  These cops even knew this cretin, she has done this sort of thing before.  What a great Country huh? 

I live with this pain every single day! Counselors don’t know how to handle it, they look all scared to even help me process this! Counselors all they do is put all this in my lap!  Lazy to the core these people are.

I’m hurting, I’m angry.  And this is the only place to vent.  Cause guess what?  I now have occasional chest pains so who knows this might just kill me.  Cause no one listens, everyone I’ve reached out to including the wonderful Police Dept 😦  have ignored me.

And in conclusion I had one former friend who used to live here?  Become real judgmental of me during our brief correspondence 3 years ago saying that I was angry when she really didn’t even bother to see what it was that I was angry about! 

She is White so I guess I can’t expect for her to understand.  She may have been bullied over other things, but she sure can’t understand being called racial slurs or to have your life threatened.  But some people are like that.  Judge you & don’t even bother to talk to you first.

I recommend you all to read Malcolm X’s auto bio.

Know what he had said in his book?

“When I encounter a person who seems angry?  I go over & talk to that person to find out why.

What a concept.

In this day & age a person may as well wait for that Million Dollar prize from Publishers Clearinghouse.

It just won’t happen.

I’m going to make my future plans to immigrate to Canada once I’ve learned a trade.

That’s it for now.

Stay tuned for further developments kids.

Me: I grew up in an extremely abusive & disadvantaged family environment were both parents were really immature & their relationship messy! I was abducted by my Father at age 8 abused physically, mentally, degraded by his 2nd Wife, and I didn't see my Mother again until 4 years later, I had to risk my neck + my life to run off to seek help with the local police & this was way before there was any such laws on the books for child abuse. Think on that awhile. Had learning disabilities all throughout school by the time I graduated I learned nothing, was prepared for nothing out in the World. Think on that. Joined the United States Army right out of High School only reason I did join was that at the time there was an Army recruiter right on the High School campus & he took an interest in me. So I joined. I was really in over my head. But what else could I do? I lived with a single Mom who was emotionally unstable & I had ZERO support from anyone including the school staff + administrators. The military was hard & degrading to me as a woman but I got out with an honorable discharge. More about me: A series of dead end jobs, my mind was totally a mess after I got out of the Army, still had no support not even from the Veterans admin. My journey has been a total nightmare of: trying to find out about myself, learning about myself, how to live as an adult, all with no help. Now after long , and intensive filled journey I'm trying to get back on track with my life I want to go to school with the hope of one day attending University. I don't wish my journey on anyone. No one gave me guidance: as a child as a teen as a young adult I was all on my own! and it was real lonely , isolating, extremely frightening. Family? don't really have any. Now remember everyone I'm African American & I receive little to no respect I don't even warrant a speeding car that will slow down. "The person who sang the National Anthem sang the last note so high that no could reach it! That was intentional!" Belize from Tony Kushners play Angels In America.
