The “Ferguson Case” …. so much more than just a “case”!!

The Truth About The Ferguson Case That Some People Really Can’t Accept

Adam Mordecai wrote the following post in Upworthy. I feel a need to share this and continue to give a voice to that African American (Black) community in this country. I feel a need to add my “white” voice to their concerns … that’s the least that I can do.

I’ve read post after post about the current (and previous – seems like it’s never changed) plight of the black young men in this country. How many have been killed? Most of them unarmed …. I think we will never know.

~ADAM WRITES~

“Some things I have learned:

ProPublica recently did an in-depth analysis and found that black kids between ages 15-19 are 21 times more likely to be shot and killed by cops than white kids of the same age. That’s an insane statistic. That’s per capita, not total. If you are a black teenage boy, you have a 21x higher risk of being shot by police than a white teenage boy.

Also, in 2010, federal prosecutors took 162,000 cases to a grand jury. You know how many DIDN’T go to trial? Eleven.

Mike Brown’s family will never get a state criminal trial to get justice for their son. And the testimony that denied them that right technically doesn’t make any sense. Seriously, go read it.

CrimeB

Police have a hard job. What they do is something I couldn’t ever do. But you know what they rarely have? Accountability. In this case, the prosecutor, Robert McCulloch, always gets indictments — unless it’s a cop. He’s had five cop-involved killing cases and zero indictments. Again, five cases against police haven’t made it to trial at all. He could get an indictment if he wanted one.

The fact that this didn’t at least get a trial infuriates me. But my being upset isn’t that interesting. I’m white. People will take me seriously because I don’t have the “bias” of being black. But actual black people, who live with this every day, are constantly second-guessed because they are somehow “biased.” As though not wanting to get shot by police at a 21x higher rate is a bias. It’s a daily reality of being black in America.

Danez Smith experiences this every day. He is 21x more likely than me to be shot by a police officer. And so he wrote “Not an Elegy for Mike Brown.”

I Went 16 Months Without A Cell Phone And My Life Was So Much Better

By: Tom Grotewohl in Culture

“I’ve spent the last year and a half without a cell phone.

You’re probably reacting to that line as if it read, “I’ve spent the last year and a half without breathing air.” Cell phones have become such a crucial part of our daily lives that most folks rely on them more than the majority of organs in their bodies.

In fact, you can get your spleen removed and continue living a normal existence, but the same cannot be said of a cell phone.

Without it, you cannot expect to have a job, a consistent network of friends or a GPS guiding you to your destination, not to mention porn on-the-go.”

Being in two places at once means you aren’t anywhere

Instant communication has transformed us all into paranoid, over-protective moms

Eye contact is the 21st century dodo

We’ve mistaken being alone for loneliness

~~PARTIAL TRANSCRIPT FROM VIDEO DESCRIPTION~~

There are an estimated 7.2 billion people on earth, of which we’ve labelled as humanity

in 36 years there will be an estimated 9.7 billion, as you can see, we’re increasing rapidly.

Roughly 3200 cities, 195 of which are capital

we’re destroying our planet just to make more areas habitable ….. 

The problem is our empathy, our lack of responsibility

we’re all guilty, we’re all filthy, we’re all riddled with impurity …… 

This isn’t about me, this will never be about me, this is about the world that put us here and is begging us to see

because if we want to see the change then we have to be the change

sacrifice personal gain and gain world peace in exchange

stop supporting fame, stop playing the game

find ourselves and realize that us humans have so much.

~~The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement~~

In late 2009 Prince Ea, upset at the present state of the music industry, decided to form a movement named “Make ‘SMART’ Cool”. The “Make ‘SMART’ Cool” movement (SMART is an acronym for “Sophisticating Millions And Revolutionizing Thought“) attempts to “promote intelligence to everyone, everywhere and integrate it with hip-hop.

To create and nurture, without discrimination or preference, a community of free-thinking individuals under the singular purpose of promoting the ideals of education, intelligence, unity and creativity throughout the world at large.”

~~September 2, 2014~~

There is so much division. There is so much conflict.

Our world, the only place we have to live in as one human race, is divided by so many borders. Borders which, at a distance, can’t be seen. Differences which are man-made. We come from the same Source. The similarities are divine, the differences are created and assigned by humans.

“From A Distance”

From a distance the world looks blue and green,
and the snow-capped mountains white.
From a distance the ocean meets the stream,
and the eagle takes to flight.

From a distance, there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
It’s the voice of hope, it’s the voice of peace,
it’s the voice of every man.

From a distance we all have enough,
and no one is in need.
And there are no guns, no bombs, and no disease,
no hungry mouths to feed.

From a distance we are instruments
marching in a common band.
Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace.
They’re the songs of every man.
God is watching us. God is watching us.
God is watching us from a distance.

From a distance you look like my friend,
even though we are at war.
From a distance I just cannot comprehend
what all this fighting is for.

From a distance there is harmony,
and it echoes through the land.
And it’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves,
it’s the heart of every man.

It’s the hope of hopes, it’s the love of loves.
This is the song of every man.
And God is watching us, God is watching us,
God is watching us from a distance.
Oh, God is watching us, God is watching.
God is watching us from a distance.

Looks like Jamie Dunmore came to America this summer …. and had a ball!! This video reminds me of what America can be. It portrays the beauty that is inherent in the country that we call America. 

It shows wildlife, wilderness, cities, urban, country, facilities. It’s inspiring, serene. There’s great potential. Let’s work together to keep it this way …. the way Jamie saw and experienced it.

Since the “creation” of “It Is What It Is” in March 2013, we have always ended all posts with this phrase: “We ALL are ONE!! …. because we are.

We all come from one Source. This Source can be called by many names. Our origins are the same. The human anatomy is the same. The physical characteristics may vary but at the deep genetic level we are the same. The color of our skin, the texture of our hair, the facial features, the needs, the desires …. may vary. Deep at the cellular level, we are the same.

“We are the voice of every living thing there is.” Thank you Sandlephon.

Narrators of We Are All One: Floyd Red Crow Westerman, Oren Lyons and Russell Means. Native American words of wisdom and our link to all life and the future of our planet.

Whether you know it or not, like it or not, want it or not, we are engaged in a struggle that concerns every living being on our planet, the human spirit, and defending the earth against further environmental destruction. All life is sacred and a beautiful gift that must be respected and protected at all cost.

Earth’s dependence on fossil fuels, coal mining, fracking and nuclear plants are not needed at all. Yet the powers that be continue to keep humanity chained to dirty energy, create wars for it, destroy the environment, poison ground water and harm Mother Earth so we can continue using the same old techniques that generate trillions of dollars for those at the top of the energy industry. This can’t go on.

We need to change things now, not in 2015, 2020, 2030 – NOW!

The future of our planet and all life depend on it.
