I originally wasn’t going to comment on the Charleston shooting but seeing the purveying reactions on Tumblr and Twitter left me with no resort. It comes as no surprise that those entrenched in their ideologies are already spreading false information and spinning narratives. Its times like these where you can see the underlying stupidity and repulsive nature of the general populace. People know that racism is a problem yet are continuing to perpetuate a climate where racism can’t be discussed in a constructive and equitable fashion. Instead of any progress being made we are essentially stuck in the same rut with one side apprehensive to discuss due to “guilt” while the other feels they are not capable of being racist at all. Furthermore we are now subject to the tireless amount of politicized opinions of people who wish to capitalize on the murders. And of course we can also look forward to the pointless array of bills brought forth in order to make the populace feel better emotionally. However, these hardly ever amount to anything but more conceded control i.e. government surveillance programs, gun controls, etc. But yes go ahead and focus your outrage on trivial things like a flag even though a couple days ago nobody cared about such things at all. Lets guarantee that nothing will be accomplished but widening the schism in America.
