I was speaking with a Black friend of mine earlier today about this and he brought up a great point. The Elite, White media can literally stir an entire Nation into a frenzy over the massacre of 20 suburban white children but simply overlook the deaths of over 100 Black children in Chicago. Wake up,  People, you re being played by the Government and the Media. All children should be equal in the eyes of our Government.

Truth.

We talked about this in my history class last week. The media is absolutely absurd.

Tolerance vs. Acceptance…

In light of what’s been happening lately with the Sikh temple murders and Chick-Fil-A controversy, I’ve been hearing the word “tolerance” thrown around a lot. At first, I wholeheartedly agreed that there’s not enough of it in this world, but is that all we should strive for? We should challenge ourselves to move beyond “tolerance” and learn how to actually accept that people are (and can/should be) different?

Maybe it’s just the way that I define “tolerance”, but when I hear that word I think of something along the lines of, “Sure…they have different __________ than me. I guess I can tolerate it, but they’re still completely wrong.”

Think about it, we all have a certain tolerance for things — slow drivers on the freeway, people who chew with their mouths open, crappy music on the radio — but rooted within that is still a sense of frustration. It’s something we learn to live with, but never actually embrace.

I’m all about Peace & Love, but I’m also grounded in reality and not this falsely created Utopian mindset where we’re all holding hands and swaying together singing Kumbaya. There’s a lot of craziness in this world and there will always be different points of view. Tolerance is a decent start, but shouldn’t we hold a higher standard for ourselves and work towards Acceptance instead?

Sportsmanlike Conduct of the Day: A short while ago, LeBron James tweeted this photo of him and his Miami Heat teammates wearing hoodies in solidarity with Trayvon Martin’s family and friends.
According to the Palm Beach Post’s Heat Zone, James is the one who organized the photo and made it happen.
Earlier today, Dwyane Wade also tweeted a photo of himself in a hoodie along with the hashtag #trayvonmartin.

i may dislike this team, but i’m impressed with this statement



It’s no secret that I’m a Lebron-hater and that I adamantly cheer against the Miami Heat, but mad props to them for doing this and hopefully raising more awareness about Trayvon Martin.
