Humaninty At It's Best?

Tell me, if your mother was in need of a kidney transplant, would she ask the doctor about the race and ethnicity of the person who volunteered to donate the organ?

Tell me, if I see your little sister on the side of the road badly beaten, partially dressed, and I offered to give her a ride to the hospital, would she decline that offer because I was born a black man?

Tell me, if your aunt was at night club, she had way too much to drink, and I offered to give her a ride home, would she decline that offer because I was born a Caucasian woman.

Tell me, if I witnessed your elderly father being mugged in a dark alley and I ran to his aid, would he decline my offer to defend him because I was born a Hispanic man? 

Tell me, if your daughter was in an unfamiliar town, she was lost, and trying to find her way back to her hotel, would she be reluctant to ask me for directions because I was born an Indian man?

Tell me, if your teenage son was hanging out with the wrong crowd,it was his first time experimenting with drugs, he had a bad reaction to the drugs, and  his friends thought it would be fun to play a cruel joke on him; so they strip him down to his socks and underware before kicking him out of the car, and leaving him in a remote area. Would he be reluctant to knock on my door to ask for help because I was born an Asian woman?

What makes you so different from the rest? Is this life? Is this love? Is this compassion? Is this humanity at its best?

Dedicated to all Men who continue to fall victim to police corruption, brutality, and misuse of authority.

"When you take one life, you affect the lives of so many others"

We need to stop gun violence, both inside and outside of the police department because no one has the right to take a life.

R.I.P to those of you that I never had the pleasure to meet.
