You become a victim? Well, that’s what they’d like you to think. That’s why those who perpetuate bullying tactics would really like for you to remain unable to respond.
But what really happens? You stop falling for their lies, and you start speaking up for yourself. You get louder and louder, until someone hears you. Until someone listens.
Be a victim to no man.
During the past week, a man who had been a friend for some while engaged in discussion on a facebook post. His engagement started out in a rather benign fashion, casually asking questions, and some responded to his questions. I recognized the tone right away, but had errands to run so I left.
I had been offline most of the day while he was commenting, and when I returned, I recognized the tone of his comments had continued, and he’d verbally bent every rule known to Ms. Manners and then some. I stated what needed to be said, and asked him to take his “debate” off my wall. He became more fully engaged. PUSHING his agenda even harder than before. No amount of pushing back was going to end his bullying and verbal shoving on my wall.
The pursuit of his “end” was obvious. I unfriended him, but my wall is set to public, so even unfriending wouldn’t stop him. He’d posted a graphic on my page implying racism. He’d called me a racist. I finalized a situation with work, away from the computer and when I came back, he’d blown up my page with propaganda. I deleted and reported him, then blocked him on facebook. Within minutes, he was blowing up my phone with text messages. I started out blocking his number, he found another number, used someone else’s phone and started in again. Then after calling my phone company to explain the problem, the tech who speaks little English misunderstood the plight and eliminated all the blocked numbers from my list.
This strange fellow began texting again from the original number.
The battle is real. There’s nothing less significant these days than justice in a world demanding social justice.
The criers don’t get it, because they’re so busy whining about all the wrongs of the past and how horrible they feel because of ancestral wrongs. But what wrongs do they have a right to complain about?
Almost every race has at one point or other been slaves in some part of the world. So, slavery is an issue for today’s blacks, in America? Really? Isn’t that kind of looking a gift horse in the mouth?
I’m convinced it isn’t about skin color. It’s about the condition of the heart. And until you fix that condition, threats like the man made to me earlier on his cell phone, and idiocy like the NFL kneeling during the pledge and the National Anthem, are just going to continue.
Something I find incredibly hilarious is the argument that skin color is an issue, when I watch something such as this by a black woman. I suppose, you can justify the difference in context from the message above to the message below, based on color. I can’t. Adrienne is making fun of ads by ancestry.com Let’s get real here…
I’m willing to listen if there’s truly something of value that you have to say. But if you’re spouting more social justice bullshit, and arguing who owes you for some silly historic wrong done to you before my time. You’re missing the point, and you’ll still be missing the point in twenty years if we’re still here, and you haven’t lit us up with a civil war.
