How TV crime shows erase racism and normalize police misconduct

I’ve noticed now some more people are clamoring to change television programming, so that it shows less police, and change team names, in addition to wanting racial justice and equality.

Down With The System?

Right now in the United States, there are many people that want to overthrow the current system and have an anger towards rich people, which I think they will use to overthrow some of them too, in addition to the system someday. One thing I think that fueled this anger and desire to get rid of the system was the recent college admissions scandal. But when I look at it, I think that’s an example of rich people doing things they shouldn’t be doing that’s outside the system. So, I think sometimes when people want to overthrow the system, maybe what they should really want and mean and say is that they want to get rid of abuses outside of the system, corrupt people like that. But sadly, I worry even if these people get what they want and the system changes, things still will not be perfect, there will never be a utopia, simply because I believe nothing will ever be perfect because people aren’t perfect. Like I said before, revolutions, changes in general, are tricky; sometimes they work out exactly as intended, and sometimes, like in the book Animal Farm, they do not.

Why Do Such Elderly People Run America?

This article answers why such elderly people are involved in politics in the United States. I think there’s some tension and resentment between old and young people in the United States and this tension and resentment might cause young people to radically change the nature of the country, like this writer seems to imply to me he wants.

Trump says he wants to “open” the country by Easter

I find the timing of this interesting. Easter is of course a holiday celebrated by people for Jesus rising from the dead, and is about rebirth, renewal, and the decay of winter and a move towards warmer months, sunshiny days, which people hope will cause the spread of coronavirus to lessen, as the common cold and flu does when winter is gone. If things do work out by this timeline, then I could see Trump doing what he always does, brag, and try to be more like Joe Biden, celebrating and preaching unity, in the buildup to the election. And with the economy he can have another The Art of the Comeback moment potentially. Me personally, I don’t see how you vote for him anymore with his failure to take warnings before it happened and be prepared. So he’s taking hits right now because of it, by people that think the same as me about him with the crisis, but I can’t get rid of the idea in my head he could still benefit from it.
