Betta.

Standard

There’s been many social changes since The Civil Rights Movement of the 1960’s with the struggle for human equality but remains difficult 2 comprehend how another person can ever claim superiority over another.

The audacity.

Fast forward to 2016 where rights remain violated due to the color of a person’s skin, gender & faith.

Seriously?

This is why I see an importance of keeping this particular segment of history alive & brought to the forefront.

With the recent pulse of bold ignorance exhibited by insecure grumpy men young & old, the sacrifices of those before me who laid their lives on the line cannot & will not be dismissed.

Betta. (1955-1965) from The Weddington Adventures. on Vimeo.

Despite the dangers during that period, peaceful demonstration displayed the power of the human spirit & exposed the foul attitudes of those who oppose.

Regardless, heads remain high….

Sprayed with high powered water hoses, beaten with police batons, mauled by dogs, even killed clearly shows the true face of injustice that continues 2 this very day.

So ask yourself, are you part of the solution or part of the problem?

C’mon man!!

Why should we even have to explain such a basic life principle that should be considered common decency?

History has the tendency to repeat itself but is our responsibility 2 prevent such painful events from reoccurring.

So now is the time for all of us 2 do “betta” yall.

Here is the first installment of a series explaining the relevance of that time & what it means 2 be me.

Peace!…with 2 fingers;)

  1. Men are so terrified about giving up what they believe to be POWER OVER OHERS, that they are willing to enslave, torture and kill others, to make sure it doesn’t happen. How can that EVER make sense. Everything is about economics…so it’s all about money. They want it and they don’t want anyone else to have it. I’ve lived long enough to see that it NEVER seems to end. This is the worst it has been, however, and no one in the government is standing up to not my president because they are afraid of what he will do to them and to their families. There are no checks and balances. None at all. The Constitution has become just another piece of paper and what happened in Germany is now happening in America. It took a war to stop that and I’m thinking that’s what’s going to happen here. It’s insane and it’s a nightmare. Peace.
