David Brin, the famous scientist, once said, “When it comes to privacy and accountability, people always demand the former for themselves and the latter for everyone else.” John Thune, the US Senator from South Dakota, gave it to us like this, “I just think we need more accountability and more transparency.” Then Henry Cloud, the author, put it where the goats could get it when he spit, “If you are building a culture where honest expectations are communicated and peer accountability is the norm, then the group will address poor performance and attitudes.”
Well playas…it doesn’t look like many of these police departments are tryin’ to build a culture where honest expectations are communicated and peer accountability is the norm bruh. On Saturday the Minnesota Lynx of the WNBA wore warm up shirts that simply read, “Change Starts With Us” with the words “Justice and Accountability” on the back of it with the Dallas Police Department badge and “Black Lives Matter” on it. When the team came out to warm up four of the police officers that were workin’ as security left their posts. For all of you simple minded individuals that means that they quit.
Now let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Everybody and their baby’s momma’s momma keeps hollerin’ that bad cops or racist cops only make up 1 to 2 percent of the cops on the streets. So it’s not all cops that are the problem. Now I’m smart enough to know that bruh! However, if there are only 1 to 2 percent of duns out here bein’ reckless and mistreatin’ black folks when are the good cops goin’ to stand up and call their boyz out? As long as when something foul happens and the entire department closes ranks to protect the bad cops then it becomes more than just 1 or 2 percent. If the entire department is protectin’ the fools then the entire department is the problem!!
Every dun in America can see that there is a systemic problem when it comes to police brutality against black men but when nothin’ is bein’ done about it all you do is empower the next fool to shoot and kill a brother.
If my kid acts a darn fool at school (edited version), slaps his teacher and they show me the video tape of it and I simply do nothin’. What is my child goin’ to do the next day at school to the very same teacher? He’s goin’ to stand up in his chair, steal her purse and shoot spit balls at her all day! Why? Because I’ve empowered him to do so by NOT holdin’ him accountable.
When someone sees injustice and says that they want “justice and accountability” and all the freakin’ cops decide to take the side of the dun that wrongfully killed a man at a freakin’ traffic stop. What do you think’s goin’ to happen today when another brother gets pulled over by the same department? Now it’s not the 1 or 2 percent that you keep tryin’ to tell us about. The dun that walked out of the Lynx game has just added himself to that number bruh! He’s got the same attitude as the original dun that pulled the trigger on Philando Castile. Why? Because he supports his actions. Am I the only one around here that’s thinkin’ today?
Just because a dun has on the same uniform that you have on doesn’t mean that he’s always right. If a boy is dead wrong then he’s dead wrong!! No man deserves to be killed because he was pulled over for a busted tail light that we’ve now found out wasn’t even busted. But to support his actions just because he’s got on the same uniform as you do is foul. That’s like if all black folks supported the actions on the lone gunman that killed 5 innocent white police officers in Dallas. THAT’S IGNORANT BRUH!!! HE WAS DEAD WRONG and you’ve got to be a darn fool to support that type of behavior regardless of his color or uniform. And that’s the edited version.
Until people start holdin’ folks accountable for bein’ racist then nothin’ is ever goin’ to change. If you see someone at work tryin’ to sabotage another employee just because they’re black and you say nothin’. Then you’re just as racist! If you hear a friend talkin’ reckless and crazy about race and you say nothin’ then you’re racist too! Why? Because you did nothin’ to stop it. If you see another cop (your colleague) mistreat someone on the street and you do nothin’ to stop it or report it. Then you’re the same bad cop!
My dad always taught me that if I’m in the ride with some fools that rob a bank and I don’t jump out of the car and report it then I’m just as guilty as they are and I’m goin’ to jail too. And what does the law say bruh? If you’re with someone that commits a crime then you’re just as guilty as they are of the same crime.
So all of the cops that walked out on the Lynx on Saturday are just as guilty of murderin’ Philando Castile as the dun that pulled the trigger. Why? Because they don’t want “justice or accountability” for this foolishness! But I bet if Philando were their child or nephew they would have put on a freakin’ T-shirt in support of “justice and accountability.” Stop me when I start lyin’!
1) Spit: verb – to say
2) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.
3) Put it where the goats can get it: verb phrase – to make it as elementary as possible. To put it at ground level so everyone can understand it.
