This post may very well cost me some readers. Honesty has a power that very few people can handle – and I’m about to be honest.
Since #CecilTheLion was killed, I’ve seen posts on social media by African-Americans and white people alike claiming there has been too much attention given to an “animal,” and not enough given to the loss of black lives.
Yes, they do, but guess what? ALL innocent lives matter!
It’s almost as if we should ONLY care about the loss of black lives. Nothing else. And, if we do, we’re condemned for it.
“The next time I go out, I’m gone put on an animal costume so if I die, white people will care.”
Yes, this is a post I saw on Facebook. Really? Frankly, twatwaffles like this make me sick. There’s so much wrong with our world today. People and animals are starving, homeless, sick, abused, yet YOUR plight is the only one that deserves attention? It’s that exact ME, ME, ME! mentality that got our country – heck, the entire world – into the mess we’re in now. Not many people care about others, including wildlife and nature. There are over 7 billion people on this planet. None of them were born entitled to anything.
Get over yourself.
ALL innocent life matters.
I try to love everyone. I try to help as many people as I’m capable of. WE ALL COUNT. No one is better than anyone else, and children and animals are the only real innocent beings.
If you’re one of those whining about the fact that people care more about an innocent animal’s death than YOU, then you’re part of the damned problem in this world, and I don’t give a happy crap what color you are. How can you expect people to care about and invest in your problems when you’re too selfish to care about others???
