A BRIEF EXPLANATION ON MY THOUGHT PROCESS WHILE PUTTING TOGETHER THIS VIDEO.
My videos so not typically come with a disclaimer but I thought this one deserved a little explaining. I know this is a touchy subject. I just think it is time we started fighting fire with fire and had an open conversation about some hard issues. Whether you agree completely with my message or not, it is difficult to refute the facts. I am a realist and common sense thinker. Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
WHY I DID IT?
This is a rant I wanted to do after the Treyvon Martin murder but I was too late and missed the news curve. After hearing about the Chris Lane murder and hearing how the media was covering it compared to the Zimmerman case, when the racial undertones of the Chris Lane case were so apparent pushed me to the brink.
This video is made with the intent of stirring emotion, sparking dialogue and engaging bystanders in a conversation that needs to be had. My use of controversial and derogatory language in this video is to prove a point. Political correctness has completely taken over our society and people fear being attacked by a society that encourages and propagates the very behaviors we hide and excuse because it is easier than dealing with the issue.
I DON’T TAKE THIS LIGHTLY!
I thought about whether or not to actually publish this video, even after spending the time to shoot and edit it for fear of blow back from the community, my friends and the world in general. I know this is a touchy subject and I know I am opening myself up to a barrage of racial comments and typical skin deep responses from people who wont even take the time to understand the view point of someone who would have the courage to put their opinion on a subject as controversial as this out for the whole world to see it.
I AM NOT A RACIST!
I do not judge people based on the color of their skin and hopefully the people who know me closely, especially my black friends can understand where I am coming from with this video. I am just sick and tired of where our society is headed, the double standards surrounding racism and the willingness of the mass public to ignore the truth about what is happening right under their noses.
IF THIS VIDEO OFFENDS YOU…
then please don’t watch it. In all honesty I am offended at the behavior and actions of the people I talk about in the video and our society as a whole. I a not a perfect person but I believe in a freedom and America as a great country. That includes my right to offend you with a message that I think the world wants to hear. If you do not want to hear it then maybe you are part of the problem.
AMERICA SCREWED UP. PLEASE FORGIVE US, AND LETS MOVE ON!
I understand the mistakes we have made in race relations and do not intend to diminish those experiences with this video. I do however have a problem with people who claim that the world is racist against them and holding them back when in all reality they are often the ones standing in their own way.
CAN YOU AT LEAST SEE WHERE I AM COMING FROM?
Even if you cannot agree completely with my message, I hope that you can at least look at my work as a whole, and understand the vision behind what I am trying to do and appreciate the balls it took to put this video out to the world. You never know what the ripple this causes leads to over time.
