Is Face book the new “F” word?

Blog 60

Gee Knocker; Why would you ask a question like that?

Well, I asked the Question to grab your attention. First of all I don’t know a dam thing about Face Book or how it works. Oh I can look at it and post a few things, but once I get it posted I’m done they say you can get rid of stuff but dammed if I can figure out how to do that

I recently finished writing My book “A View from the street / River City Policing and I launched it as a Fund raiser for the VFW post 5564 In McCleary WA. I was at a district meeting hosted by our V F W post and soon observed that Vets in wheel chairs had more than a little trouble using the rest rooms. It took three or four guys jockeying the chairs around to get them through the doors. This post was built long before the ADA mandated that disabled persons needed to be accommodated in these types of facilities. I decided then and there that I would use my book to help raise funds to renovate this post and help these vets that served and are now stopped at the restroom door from being all they can be in continued service to this nation.

Well I went up on face book and started messaging the V F W Post all over the country with the message that we were holding this fund raiser I also messaged some of the book stores that claimed to be friends of the VFW

One Book store owner called me from Chicago and complained that I was spamming and he made a bunch of threats regarding this and said he was reporting me to Face Book. Of course I apologized and tried to make it wright with him. A few days later I was suspended from Face book for a day and then for several weeks I was suspended every other day then Face Book suspended me for 30 days

I was able to get word to my friends that this was going on and of course we are all laughing about it. I tried to explain to Face Book because they say: If you disagree with the actions they take you can send them a message and they will look into it.

I tried to do what they asked and they blocked that action too. I thought I could maybe post on My face book page, but no they Blocked that too. Must be the Great Leftwing conspiracy do the minimum get the maximum lefties, socking it to the conservative.

Too this I say bless your little cold rock hard hearts Face Book.

It’s Not All Black and White

Blog 59
Just like in the plot of an old Barney Miller episode: When a black man is confronted with a source of victimization in which he perceives he was unfairly targeted because of his race and then blames all white men for the perceived insult. The white man then perceives he has been victimized by the assertion that all white men are raciest.

We can conceptually understand the depth of his pain and the tendency to lash out at the white world he blames, for the hurt inflicted by the carless application of a stereotype, but we cannot feel his pain. Neither can he feel the pain of a white man unfairly lumped in with the original perpetrator of the original insult.

Now we come to the media: By Media I mean all the regular information outlets and the race baiters seeking a finical gain from stoking the flames of bigotry. The Al Sharpton’s and David Dukes of the world, the scumbag political hacks that infest the internet, all those who don’t give a dam about the hurt inflicted by individuals of any race.

This did not start with Slavery. Slavery has been around since the beginning of recorded history, it started with one person’s contempt for another. Race is just a convenient accident of nature seized upon to facilitate the acquisition of Money or Power or both.

When one of these dust ups gets started, we all need to remember that we are all just people, and none are without sin. When apologies are in order give them from the heart. What does it cost? A little pride? What is that compared to the pain involved. When apologies are given accept them and move on.

It isn’t anything a little Bar-B-Que and a beer can’t cure

I should interject here that I am not attempting to minimize the nature of tragic encounters involving race. We must at least attempt to keep those who would profit from it from stirring the pot.
