Okay, I know everyone has been hearing about this on the news. Terry Schiavo, a woman who became brain-damaged after an adverse reaction to an eating disorder, was ordered to have her feeding tube removed. So-called Christians and other Republicans are rallying vigorously to ensure that she be able to keep her feeding tube and that her parents will be allowed to care for her. Now, while I do have my own opinion on this matter, when I read about this case it makes me so angry. Because, although I think all human beings whether brain-damaged or not should be treated with some form of dignity, why do so many in white culture make a campaign on issues like this, yet don't seem to have any problems with the torture some black men have gone through by the police? They'll rally for a brain-dead woman who probably can't feel pain, or protest against 'animal cruelty', but let a policeman who BRUTUALLY attacks unarmed black men who aren't brain-dead go! It makes me sick! Anyway, what are your thoughts?
