"Do You Know Why?"

With all thats happening in our nation I get a lotta questions from others as well as myself like...

Why does 30% of a nation (minorities) make up 60% of incarceration in that same nation yet some still believe racism is nonexistent? What does fair even mean to imperfect people like who gets to decide whats fair an whats not if were all human (meaning all imperfect)? Why do we celebrate criminals like Columbus (who stole land from the Natives) yet we criminalize those who attempt to bring harmony & awareness in non-violent manners (Kapernick)? How can a man be sent to jail for dog fighting (Vick) but hunting is done for sport & yet a man can be paid leave for killing a human being if that human looks like me an the shooter works for the nation? Is a dogs life more valuable than mine? Is a gorillas life more valuable than mine I mean how is it that some of my friends can be so adamant about justice for an animal yet they need the "whole story" when it comes to a humans life who just so happens to look like me? Why don't we understand that its hypocritical to call others hypocritical? Why is it the American flag is sacred to some & offensive or a sign of oppression to others an why is it neither person wants to walk in the others shoes to understand each others perspective? Wait so you mean to tell me its ok to have two huge Confederate Flags welded onto the back of a pick up truck in 2016? Why is it that two males can be convicted of rape yet one gets only 3 months because it would ruin his college experience while the other male is sent to jail for a few years an yet we still don't address the ladies violated? Why should women even report rape if the offender only gets a slap on the wrist? Why are women made out to be objects rather than human beings in the media? Why do we support it so carelessly? What am I doing to bring harmony unity & most importantly love to EVERYONE I meet? If I lump some a specific ethnicity together aren't I doing exactly whats being done to me when I assume based on an individuals outward appearance?

Theres a ton of questions I have no answers for & these are some questions I have in my own head all I know is I don't know much at all lol but what I do know is this same hurt, struggle, pain, has made clearer than ever why I'm here & what I wanna do I wanna change the world with unconditional love (crazy yup far fetched no doubt impossible alone but thats the best part) theres only One who can personally show that to every single human His name is Jesus an my goal is to share Him as vulnerably, artistically, diversely, an authentically as I can todays the day I stop fearing what others think or have to say about who I am todays the day I start focusing on whose I am an walk in that truth letting all i do be done outta love regardless if it is or is not returned simply because I know WHY... my Hope Exists, and Agape Validates Me.

(i wanna grow, discuss, bring unity, all in love so lets chop it up i wanna see conflict & struggle build our relationships stronger rather than separate us; theres only one enemy an its not each other)
