It's been a good minute since I last wrote one of these but I believe it's time to renew because and to just say straight up what needs to be said and to give those in my race and in particularly my generation some real intense harsh and brutal tough love. As a Memphian, Native Memphian, and as a Young Memphian I’m ashamed, embarrassed, disappointed, and disgusted. It's been almost 2 weeks since the death of George Floyd by the hands of a Minneapolis police officer when he put his knee on his neck causing his death by asphyxiation and strangulation. In addition we also witnessed three of his colleagues who most likely are under him when I say under him I mean rank and years of experience just stand there and watch knowing that what the officer was doing was wrong but they chose not to say nothing because they did not want to deal with hell coming from their officer when they got back to the precinct. What I'm about to say is simple in this what happened to George Floyd was a tragedy and it should have never happened but what I am seeing in this country it's starting to scare me more and more after the riots and the assault on police the focus and the protest for George Floyd is not what it is anymore this is simply a protest and calls for civil Anarchy in the United States which is dangerous. I think we can all agree that what happened to George was not only heinous but it was downright disgusting and wrong.
For starters the protest over his death there in Minneapolis we can all agree that the protest should happen and the voices need to be heard. However let me be frank on this the moment members of your movement start divulging from the protest and combining with outside groups to reek violence and havoc on businesses to the point in they lose inventory or completely destroyed that's when people in general start to question the protest and really the motive of the protesters in general. Not that the majority of the protesters don't want peace but the fact that a lot of them will enable the violence and the Looting and destruction of property as Martin Luther King say riots and looting are the voices of the unheard which you got a question is it really the voices of the unheard or is it just a poor excuse for people to destroy property because they don't want to face the reality of hardships in tough times.
