getting out of negative situations
I think the show cops was like baby steps into our psyche, allowing us to sit back and watch the police beat and brutalize and murder us the way they do today. From laughing at the dumbest criminals to fearing the dumbest police. Flipping the script, and using GOONS as the COPS logo because in reality they are the Negative Situations we are trying to get out of most times in minority communities.
I remember seeing “Cornbread, Earl, and Me” for the first time and thinking “man this is some heavy shit!” Now police shoot somebody in real life and you kind of just shrug it off... My point is I want to continue to bring awareness to the ongoing issues of people of color being mistreated by the Police in this country. Breaking down the psychological effects of police brutality in the media. In an attempt to reverse that numbness by revisiting some of the most notorious police brutality occurrences in History and Hollywood.
Salute to the New York Times for a powerful think piece by Meek Mill who has had a tremendous up hill battle with our nations judicial system. (view here.) The statistics show that colored people in our country are treated worse all across the board and I want to be a catalyst for change in my community. Spreading Awareness and sharing this knowledge can help someone Get Out Of Negative Situations!
Ive had my share of run ins with the law and how they treat people of color in comparison to non minority communities. Violent and unruly like dogs off the leash with a license to kill, harm, discredit, and lie. not every officer is this way but the good doesn’t make up for the percentage of those out here doing bad. The court systems are inconsistent and flawed. I want Getting Out Of Negative Situations to be synonymous with Prison reform and a staple in the fight against Police Brutality like the Black Lives Matter movement.
