As i listened to Keith tonight i though of the fact if an old white woman had been shot? going to the store late at night? what justice then? Fear is killing all of us. My mother stopped going out at night at my age, refused to go to a movie alone or eat out. I am 54, for me that is too young to be old and afraid. At 16? to young to go and get skittles by himself in the dark? in a hoodie? chatting on the phone? I would assume I was being stalked also by a pedaphile, robber, rapist? just being paranoid? as it turned out.....I remember hearing a story when i was young of a woman raped and crying for help and people who didn't help, as she screamed and was murdered. This was all over the news when I was young....memory is fading. I remember little black girls being burned at church, I was there age. It never ends. I hope I live to see the day. I have never seen that mountain top.
Thank you for sharing your video ( it made a great point about perception). Your comment brings up so many valid points. We do live in fear and you're right it is killing us. I learned an important lesson years ago when I was boarding public transit and the young man behind me with his hoodie, stepped aside and most politely allowed me to board the bus in front of him. See we live in times where manners aren't a big deal anymore. I thanked him and valued the lesson and reminder that he gave me on that day.
We can't solve all of this in one day and sometimes new problems come to light and our attention is taken away. We've come a very long way and although we're not at the top; we're certainly not at the base of that mountain anymore.
Thank you again Percipi224 for a great video and comment.
