Eric Casebolt, Savagery and Emotionless population!

The only thing that makes a person a human being are the feelings toward others. Sometimes I feel like the way European-American police officers act towards African-American kids strips these police officers of their humanity. Their actions towards these kids put them in concert with the wild. If a kid tells an officer 'I'm sorry!' and the officer says 'I don't care!' then you know either European-American personhood is morally challenged or America hires wild beasts in the name of police officers...or the American system is as it was since the 1600s. America is slowly drifting back into the past.

The recent footage of a police offer pinning down a McKinney (Texas )14-year old  girl and talking to a bunch of kids as if they are adults requires America to reconsider the state of mind of their officers. If an adult looses himself because kids who pose no danger to anyone turned up at a suburban pool party then you gotta wonder how this state of affair is different from Jim Crow era! European-American home owners in the area told Zahid Arab of Fox4 that the officer was justified in this action. This is heartless!

A conscientious European-American kid at the scene portrayed an attitude that is admirable; something that I believe should be the future of America. “Everyone who was getting put on the ground was black, Mexican, Arabic...The cop “didn’t even look at me. It was kind of like I was invisible.”

The calm and mannerism these African-American kids showed made me proud. While some of the young African-American men that are routinely killed by European-American police officers have questionable characters, these kids were just celebrating the end of school year.

And what makes me even more horrified is the fact that an adult civilian (European-American) simply watched emotionlessly as a 14-year girl was being assulted by a police officer without this adult saying a single word. A human population that feels nothing toward another human population is a dangerous human population. We are human beings because of our feelings. And if the adults, who called the police, believe the police action was justified then something is terribly wrong in American moral conscientious. I know European-Americans have always been morally challenged hisotrically but I'd assume a level of evolution toward the positive. It's 2015 in the name of the son of a the Jewish Carpenter!

How come young European-Americans have more hearts and human emotions than their parents? Perhaps these younger generation of European-America is the future of America. They are more human than the parents with robotic hearts!

My main concern is the emotionlessness with which these people act. What makes them human, exactly?

And what is even more appalling is the fact that Eric Casebolt, the offending police officer, is a decorated officer. Seriously!  This man has a position of responsibility in the police Union and has won several medals as reported by Washington Post. You just have to wonder, if that's the kind of the officer who winds medal, then how bad are the rest?

Eric Casebolt was foul-mouthed, unprofessional, emotionally savage, yet he's the kind of officer who winds medals! "God Bless America!"

ON CULTURAL IDENTITY & BELONGING

Dear Melbournians, the South Sudanese people to be precise. Do you think we have seen it all? Do you think we have seen that: I mean in the aftermath of yesteryears, in regard to our culture and the notions around identity and belonging? Do you think we have seen the true reaping of what we sowed years ago? Do you really think so? After all, did we really sow anything like seeds and that there’s something to be reaped? Did we really live it out well to be seen today?

I am sorry to have bothered you, my potential readers, with questions regarding our social, economic, and political location in our host society: Australia. I think we have not seen it all and as a whole: The idea that people are bound by certain values and beliefs of significance to them. This requires cooperation and role-specific obligations on the roles of every man and woman across a given people and their society.

TOLERANCE & INCLUSION


While it is possible for us to racially discriminate or judge people we know, the chances of judging people we know diminish significantly the more we know them. An easy example of the importance of understanding others is the attitude people develop when they want to harm others or when they want to deny them something valuable. Essentially, before you fight someone, you insult them. Insults are attempts at diminishing the value of people, an attempt at estranging them, as Toni Morrison argued in The Origin of Others. It is easy to discriminate against strangers or make others strangers or dehumanized in order to discriminate against them.

Transformational Leadership, Inclusive Institutions and Service Provision

Leadership, given what is happening now in South Sudan, and generally in Africa, fascinates me. And it fascinates me not in a good way but because of the sociopolitical and socioeconomic ills facing the African continent and most of the so-called 'Third World.' To me, South Sudan, now, is a classic case.

Rebellion by disaffected politico-military leaders and repression by the government of South Sudan in Juba have stunted institutional development and leadership growth. This has made service provision almost irrelevant as political survival has taken primacy and supremacy. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE

‘Black’ as an Identity Oversimplification and Mockery

Black as a universalized cultural identity of the African Person (AP)* is a residual effect of slave and colonial mentality; a racial/race paradigm. It is a malady I call, conservatively speaking, stuck-in-the-past syndrome of color constraints. Black could be an on-the-street ‘social identifier’ of race figures not a meaningful phenomenon of deep cultural identification on a universal scale.
