I just got home a little while ago from clubbing with my friends & with of course one of my older male cousins my dad pays to watch over me by order of my dad who mistakenly thinks I'm still a child. Anyway, just out of curiosity we drove around to some of the Black areas like Glen Cove, Freeport, Roosevelt, Hempstead & Westbury & it was eerily quiet, not the usual post club carrying on & hoopla, it was like people were going to work or something, nobody made eye contact with the police who were maintaining an unusually high visibility throughout the entire county, nobody was getting quick bites before they went home, most of the police cars now had at least two cops in them, some had 4 cops, a lot of unmarked cars were prowling about too, driving very slow & just eying everybody, a few of the cops who knew me from my dad just gave me a perfunctory nod, no wave, no hello, no nothing. My mom came into my room a few minutes ago very distraught & told me that some of my dads retired Navy & retired police buddies have contacted him yesterday & are visiting him later today or tomorrow with intentions of inviting him to join "Oath Keepers", I said mom these guys are racist White militants who threatened, bullied & harassed the Black protesters in Ferguson Missouri over the Michael Brown murder, mom cried some more then showed me some articles that clearly reveal that a number of retired & on duty Black military veterans & retired Black policemen are now members of this group. I just went on their website & what my mom said is true. they actually have numerous Black members giving testimony as to the benefit of belonging to this whatever it claims to be, I don't feel too good about this, I personally feel an attempt to foster treason against my race is afoot here so later today I going to start contacting my family & we need to get together & try to see if my dad can in some way validate his reason for aligning himself with something like this, this, all of this what's happened in the last 96 hours in America is not good, not good at all.
