I try not to complain too much, but what is going on in Cincinnati is out of hand. For more info click to:
Please understand that the following is my opinion on what I see and may not be totally accurate. I do not intend to offend anyone or put anyone down. I am NOT trying to sterotype or demean people of other races, just posting my thoughts and observations and venting my frustration in a peaceful and somewhat civilized manner.
Without going into a long story, Cincinnati has been dealing with "racial tension" between the black community and the Police Department over recent deaths of black individuals at the hands of police. With the help of the hyped up media the tension has broke into violence and riots throughout the city.
Now I can understand the repeated deaths of black persons at the hands of police (both black and white officers) sounds questionable. However using some simple logic and math lets look at the big picture. If an area is populated with 90% blacks and a crime is being committed, what are the odds that it is going to be a black indivdual? Then what are the odds that an officer shoots and kills someone committing a crime is black?
Now a group of people both black and white are going throughout the city rioting and vandelizing businesses and homes. What I don't understand is they are trashing their own neighborhoods. When this first started they stopped white individuals driving through some of these neighborhoods where they might live or work and would drag them out of their cars and beat them up and trash their car. If that isn't racism, what is? What do they think they are proving with this violence?
Please feel free to leave you thoughts and opinions, however I ask that it be done in a civil manner and if it starts to become a bashing of people then I would ask for it to be deleted!
