What a shame.

Why do we show these things?
Today, we are giving a new look into a recent gun down, as two police officers took the life of 37-year-old, Alton Sterling, after they had him on the ground. Sterling was said to be armed and dangerous, which led to both officers pulling their gun on the young man. The video has went viral, leading to the FBI opening a civil rights case. Sterling was said to be deceased by the time the ambulance got there.

Of course, with the video going viral we will be getting a lot of response by different races, across the world. The responses have already began to pour in, and they are what I suspected. One side of the argument is “He is a criminal, he should be shot,” and the other side is “They only shot him because he’s of the black community.” The fact that a man got shot and the first response is to make it a racial thing, sickens me, and the media is to be blamed.

The media will use anything like this, in order for them to sell another story. There are a thousand things going on in the world, but they choose to make the black man getting shot the biggest story, why? Because racial differences are sensitive, and they know that there is money waiting in the story. They know that this will flame up both whites and blacks, leading to people to talk more about the story, and leading people to read it. Yes, the incident is horrible, but the important thing to remember, during these situations, is that we are all human and we all matter.

Whether the cop shot him on purpose or not, we will never know. I am sure that there was some foul play, but either way, we can’t do anything about that. We can’t change the fact that a father is gone, but we can give his family time to heal. Its selfish for us to bring in race, when there are children hurting from the loss. We need to give them the time they need, and maybe one day we will have answers, and Sterling will have his justice, but until then, we can use this time to unite, as one.

All lives matter. It is horrible that the cop shot him, but that doesn’t change the fact that we all matter. Whites matter, Hispanics matter, Blacks matter, Irish matter, we all matter. Once we get that, the media won’t be able to take advantage of these situations, and use them to turn us against each other. I stand with all people, no matter the ethnicity. My prayers go out to the Sterling family, as they face the hardest days ahead of them. I am truly sorry for your loss, and pray for the best that can come. Again, sorry.
