Blacks vs. Whites When Stopped by Cops

We are all too familiar with the realities and disparity that surrounds African-Americans and Whites who are stopped by police officers. Numerous videos have circulated that reveal just how bad the treatment can be for Blacks who are either pulled over by the police or who are merely interacting with them.

It is so bad, young Black children are fearful of the police, and they are forced to watch educational videos on how to behave when they encounter the police. This is no laughing matter, so please don’t take this video the wrong way. Although it does an excellent job of pointing out the problem of racial profiling and racial inequality in treatment, it still drives home the unfortunate truth that Blacks are forced to deal with daily.

In this video, you have a White police officer who shares just how “color blind” he refuses to be when he encounters Black men, and how that attitude changes when he then encounters White men. The circumstances in which he stops these men are all different, but the bottom line is obvious.

If the truth hurts, then this video will make you both cry from pain and then laugh from the mere ridiculousness of it all. Talk about taking things too far. Maybe the producer of the comedy skit wants to touch on the issue of racial profiling and inequality using comedy so that the message can get across without being too preachy. It works.

See for yourself the comedy, the ugly, the pain, and the reality that the video captures in only a few minutes. How do you feel about the message it shares?



A Cat Lover Like No Other

We all know someone who is an extreme cat lover, right? However, what happens when you have an actual “cat lover” that consists of a cat showing undying affection to a human? In this video, you will see a cat that refuses to be rejected by his female owner.

The cute cat gently rubs her face, and as she attempts to look away from him, he uses his paw to bring her attention right back to him. You can’t beat the level of adorability on this one! Just when others might want to argue that animals can’t feel affection or give affection, this cat proves that they have all that it takes to show love.

Are you feeling down right now? Are you feeling the need for animal affection? If so, this video will provide you with the love you are lacking. There are a number of hospitals and schools that use animals to heal. In certain nursing homes, for example, you have many elderly people who are depressed and in need of companionship.

Programs that understand the human need for affection have presented opportunities for people to receive the love and affection they need from animals that are trained to gear their attention to humans that emit low energy frequencies. You can’t get any better than that! So check out the love that this cat has for his owner in this video that proves that cats are lovers too!
