Today, I saw a picture being passed around on facebook. Most of the shares were from the stereotypical angry black people that I know. (Excuse my bluntness… I have no racial discrimination by the way) Here is the picture:
First of all, who still thinks about the titanic? Not many people remember family members affected by that and it didn’t have an effect on our security as a nation. Then there is the attack on the World Trade Centers. I remember that day 11 years ago. It was shocking and overall a sad dark day. My mom remembers watching the second plane crash into the tower on live TV. This is extremely relatable to our life time.
Now, I fully recognize the fact that racial slavery was a humongous issue and still somewhat remains to this day. BUT on 9/11 don’t you think you could atleast just show a little respect to those that died on that day. Thousands of people died. African Americans today are not slaves anymore. It is not a risk to your race anymore either. Terrorism is though…
I don’t have any confirmed sources of this but I am assuming black people died during this attack too. I could say alot more but I feel that I would be stepping on a lot of toes if I were to keep talking even more than I already have. But please, show some respect?
These are my initial thoughts. They aren’t always thoroughly developed and might be mildly offensive. I apologize to those but this is the very nature of “my initial reaction.”
