Many medias today cover the graphic video recorded in late Fabruary, which recorded that exact moment of 25-year-old black man, Ahmaud Arbery, was shot, and died after subsequent brutal shot. His families and civil right activists now stress their anger against the irresposnible of the local authority, gathering outside the Gergia State Capital building. The footage later ended up in having revealed the definitive flaw of the federal judiciary of the US because this grim shooting was too late to be covered in the public. Some assume why this footage has withholded for as long as 2monthsis simply the autorities downplay the death of "Black Guy," period. I surely feel discomfort with this shooting as a black guy has died for nothing, regardless of his race, deeds, and thought. The people in the US are guaranteed their freedom right under the first amendment, but sometimes its freedom right are ignored or forfeited for thier race, religion, thought, and etc,.
I realized however that many might not realize what they should have realized. What if he was a white. What if both the father and his son were black, or Asian. During the coronavirus, I had some chances to listen and read articles over racism against Asian from white in the name of justice. I won't lambaste but the fact is that the US president Donald Trump called the virus as Chinese virus. Racism, gun violence and illicit arrest are prevailing the society but sarcastically, those are not necessarily known to every body except happened under the typical scenario.
When i put the words in either Japanese or English, I found an interesting fact. On Google news feed, I put three words "white," "black," and last one varies each time from violence to murder. The result is that almost all cases are by white offenders, meaning that black people are tend to be victims and casualities. It sounds weird, probably not to you, but at least to me. We are not even in 1960s or before. It is 2020. This tendency is quit interesting as well; when people hear racial segregation or racism, the first impression they come up with is "white did again." I am sorry if it sounds racist but no offence. I always write this worthless post from quit objective perspective so that I reflect my thought but do not reflect my ethical view at all and will not. What I want to say the most is racism does not always happen from one certain group to another, but it differs. We happen to see news over racism against particular group; for example asian, hispanic and black seem to be frequently subjected to be attacked but remember, that is not always the case. The fact is that there have been lots of segregation in the long history of America. Today, as such, news cover sometimes in exageratted way especially when the incidents happend to them; when the case is reversal, from namely minority group to white, it seems less remarkable because probably not all media do not tell the story about it: manipulating.
To make long story short, in this world, today, we can not have something always happen to one particular groups, but reversal is likely to occur only because we have less opportunity to see the kind of news. Once again, I am not in either side. I am always neutral because racism or dismissive mean nothing. Simply I wrote down what exacly I thought and I felt from every day life, but if you feel obnoxious reading this, I never mind your asking me to delete this post immediately.
