Dear America, I am utterly in love with our racial tension. And I shudder to think of my life without it. Our racial tension is sweet and intoxicating. I confess, not only am I smitten with it, I find it insatiably addicting. In the face of racial tension, my knees are weak and I do not ever want to live without it. Or else what would I do with my time? How could I live with you?
Sincerely, Savior and Victim.
We avoid change like it’s it is a painful affliction.
Why do we eat? Why do we wash our hands? Why do we scratch? Because we’re hungry, they’re dirty, and we itch. We seek remedies to improve our condition. Remedies require change.
I’m not going to name the latest regularly scheduled racial tension news story. Because in six months there’ll be another one to take its place, compliments of the MSM. But I will say this, several bloggers have wisely pointed out that we citizens are once again being played like fiddles by the MSM.
This is our world. We’re not children anymore. We have to see our roles in every aspect of America’s changes. Should I scratch that itch for you? Should I feed you? Or might you want me to wash some part of your body? If you do, consider there may be something seriously wrong with you because that’s not adult or normal thinking.
And for those who believe the “little guys” are in perpetual need of your help to defend them against the “big guys,” there may be something really wrong with you too.
The “victim” and “savior” are simply roles some of us like to play. Change comes whether you’re on board with it or not. Change disables control and may cause confusion. But so does learning to ski, surf or riding a bike. Once we adjust, it is an exhilarating feeling!
Did 1950s America know what 1990s America was going to look and feel like? How did we get there? A number of different ways, but the most popular route was by individuals making changes in their thinking.
It’s 2012. Stop acting like it’s not. People die every day. No one death is more significant than the other. Are you the player or are you being played? It’s likely you’re part of our silent majority, living your lives and occasionally noticing the players.
Well I have a message for the players, saviors as well as victims. Maybe today’s not your day. But one of these days, your light bulb is going to flicker on and you’re going to realize that all along, everyone has simply been living their lives. And every happening in our great country was not always about you. Your antics have morphed into the ridiculous.
You may be crazy like a fox. But eagle eyes are on you and the snake won't let you tread.
That’s my truth and I’m sticking with it.
