Open Season On Blacks

It appears that the season is now open.

The hunt is not for deer, though,

nor for the moose

nor for the elk.

It seems that the season is now open for blacks.

There has been a trend of police shooting blacks

who are almost always unarmed.

What we have here is a failure to communicate!*

Now I am not throwing you a curve

nor a breaking ball

but actually a broken ball.

Which should imply that you can’t hit it with a bat.

And even if you did, it would be a foul!

But all kidding aside,

the police officers do not communicate with the blacks

and the blacks do not communicate with the police officers.

This is why the blacks end up being shot by policemen.

The blacks don’t carry guns.

But hold on, that is not the only thing to consider—-

think about it—-

police officers carry guns

and also badges.

This implies that guns are carried with the the authority laid down by law.

Policemen should rule under situations requiring police presence.

And to maintain the peace they must control the situation.

It is then impossible to do just this if there are

contradictions to the police presence.

Contradictions like verbal aguments, swearing,

oppositions to police authority, and mostly

blatant exhibitions of disrespectful disregard

for police authority.

Whenever such incidents happen

the policemen lose their cool and draw their guns

in the effort to gain control of a situation

that he has already lost the moment he appeared.

Whatever happens then is just a matter of pulling the trigger,

if the policeman happens to be trigger-happy

or is just plain scared of a situation out of control.

Who is to blame for this?

It is clear that the police officers poclaim their authoity

in a loud manner.

But why the heck would there be a contradiction to this authority?

Would it not have been uneventful had the black stopped what he was doing

when the policeman said stop?

Wouldn’t it have been peaceful had the black got down from the vehicle

when the policeman told him to do so?

Wouldn’t it have been orderly had the black obeyed what the policeman

told him to do?

After all the policeman has the badge and the gun and the law to back him up!

Now why would blacks have the habit

of disregarding laws and rules and requirements

just to do what they want to do?

Schools make no difference in training them.

Neither do the parents in teaching them discipline.

There is no failure to communicate here.

There is just plain negligence to spank them.

And it looks like it is again open season on spanking blacks!

Singularity

Watch out for this word.

Or rather, watch for this word.

Something tells me that this word

will be a byword in the distant future.

It should imply that humans will lose more of their differences

but gain more in commonality.

Humans will grow similarities in more aspects than one.

And all because we try to make things better for us.

The next continuing post regarding this topic

may not be in the distant future.

UNpresidented

Unpresidented

 

Unprecedented is the spat between the US President and the Philippine President regarding the latter’s war on drugs.

Obama resents the words uttered by Duterte calling the Human Rights Commission with words coming close to the effing words.

Obama calls these words of Duterte as spoken from habit when in fact these words are what we may call as favorite expressions which are identical to the effing words that are favoritely and publicly expressed by the Americans.

A personal confrontation such as this between the two Presidents clearly provides what the term “Ugly American” implies. It comes to the fore the difference between Asian naivete and American arrogance.

The Americans built this country of the Philippines around the tenets of American democracy, and ever since the Liberation from the Japanese occupation, this country has been the showcase of American democracy. Schools were started then, and even the American Constitution and National Anthem was taught. Indeed the people of the Philippines learned and even surpassed the Americans in national fervor, politics, and even in governmental graft and corruption. Before anything novel is done, the question to be asked is : how would the Americans do it?

Except this time, this country has something to teach the Americans in how to deal  with drug traffickers.

But this unprecedented act of the American President is an eye-popper and a game strategy changer. The Human Rights Commission should have talked to Duterte first before they lambasted him for the killings of those related to drug trafficking in the Philippines. By then they should have realized that the orders to shoot the drug traffickers are done only when the police are fired upon first. Such hasty accusations are characteristic of the Human Rights Commission when it attempts to control heads of state. They should be reminded again that not all countries live the same way the Americans do.

Inside a shelled nut (whatever that means) what Obama did with his personal tirade against another President of another small non-nuclear country is unpardonable by foreign diplomatic practices. Very unlike some other regimes, the Philippines is not an oil-producing, non-exporting, non-trade dependent, non-belligerent country which would side with the Americans by choice against any other country that the US opposes. The Philippines earn its dollars by exporting people. These are law-abiding, American-loving, God-fearing people.

If the Philippine President would do what he promised to do to sanitize the country of drugs, then the rest of the world should mind their own business and just watch how it is done.
