“Oh my Lord, bless Mike Brown & his family,” she. This is terrible. Why y’all? Why do we do this to each other? Why do we hate each other, harm each other, kill each other? We are brothers & sisters y’all. All colors! Peace is the answer. Stop separating yourselves through race. That’s the issue. We actually think that’s a thing. We are ALL family. You don’t stop hate with hate. MLK taught us that. If you want to end racism, start by not generalizing/grouping people with the thought that they all believe the same things.
If you’re tired of the pain, relate to people on something we all have felt. Stop finding ways to separate yourselves. The answer is how we are different, the answer is how we are alike. It’s true that we all don’t understand each other’s plight, but it doesn’t have to end there! Compassion takes you places. Thinking ‘realistically’ is not keep it 100, it’s thinking small & I never have done that! I’m not starting now! MLK had a dream and it came true! Those same dreams can grow if we stick together as ONE people.
“I allow God to use me by spreading his love & he don’t just love Black people or White, or Asian, or Hispanic. He loves ALL! I know what my people go through, but an eye for an eye makes the whole world go blind. Be the change you want to see. I feel bad for those who choose to believe they’re doomed. You’re doomed because you believe so. God bless Mike Brown & his family.”.
