How many young people can speak right, let alone debate anymore? My own niece (who is white) portrays herself like the poster child for Walmart. Kids need to wake up and act intelligent and dignified. A friend of my posted the following on Facebook after the Zimmerman Verdict. I agree with a lot of the sentiment. Except the praying. I'm off prayer & religion. Due to my problems lately I've decided I prefer no god at all than one who ignores/tortures me.
"TODAY I WAS IN MY CAR AND I SAW 3 YOUNG MEN WALKING AND ALL OF THEM HAD THEIR PANTS DAMN NEAR TO THEIR KNEE CAPS. ONE PULLED DOWN WORSE THAN THE NEXT. I LOOKED AT THEM WITH DISGUST AND THEY GAVE ME THE "WTF U LOOKIN AT" LOOK BACK. WHEN WILL THEY UNDERSTAND THEY COULD BE THE NEXT TRAYVON MARTIN? I'M BLACK AND I LOOK AT THEM THAT WAY, HOW WILL ANYONE ELSE VIEW THEM? THESE ARE OUR SONS OUT THERE. EVERY PULLED DOWN PAIR OF PANTS REPRESENT PULLED DOWN DIGNITY. IT TAKES A VILLAGE, IN OUR CASE, IT TAKES A NATION. LET US KEEP OUR CHILDREN IN PRAYER. GOD BLESS!! ?#?PULLUPYOURDIGNITY?"
