These days…

These days there is no specific stereotype for a person who experiences turmoil, like residing in section 8 housing or worse on the streets. Nope, these days all you have to do is be human and not blending in with what society has set as “acceptable” to be , that’s the only requirement. With this requirement who is their actually room for? I’ll tell you, an unrealistic plethora of people, that do not even exist in any way shape or form ever, that’s who.”

-Chántelle Agbro

These days, you can’t be gay, you can’t be black, you can’t be muslim, you can’t be honest and you can’t fight for what you believe in without being killed or viciously criticized.

There is a post trending on facebook that caught my attention and speaks volumes in pursuing your authenticity and highlights the outrageous mentality of the majority of people in the world today. It says:

“If you’re gay, it’s a sin. If you’re bisexual, you’re confused. If you’re skinny, you’re on drugs. If you’re fat, you look nasty. If you’re dressed up, you’re conceited. If you speak your mind, you’re a bitch. If you don’t say anything, you’re a punk. If you cry, you’re a drama queen. If you have male friends, you’re a hoe. If you have female friends, you’re a player.

YOU can’t do anything without being criticized. We live in a society where people can’t survive if they’re not judging the next person.”

  1. Any thought’s on this post?
  2. What kind of world do we actually live in?
  3. Why do people constantly feed off of negativity, ignorance and the concept of bringing down the next person like your shit doesn’t stink?

Life is really so simple but we make it complicated!

What good does it do to kill millions in war because of their religion? To rape women because you were abused as a child or because of your own serious insecurities? Or what about killing a community of people because you hate yourself?

How does any of this make sense?

The entire Orlando Shooting besides sad and pointless was also so confusing to me. How does killing the people you supposedly “hate” fix the “issue” you have with them? Also, how is your issue even valid if they literally have done nothing but be themselves and live their lives?

No one’s sexuality nor sexual preference should ever bother you that much that you feel the need to kill them, like that is literally insane.

Are we even people? I’m really starting to second guess daily the power of the human natural instincts because it seems as though lately they haven’t been kicking in with society quick enough.

When is enough going to be enough? Are we really not going to stop until we destroy ourselves?

I have so many questions and it irritates me knowing that I may never get the answer. I’ve come to the point where I’ve humbled myself so much in dealing with what others go through. I’m so sensitive in how I address certain things because I can’t stop thinking that that could have been me.

  • I could’ve been in that Orlando club, Pulse.
  • I could have been one of the Syrian people who are caught up in the middle of a senseless war.
  • I could have had a dad who raped, abused and sold me.
  • I could have been a prostitute.
  • I could have been the child of a serial killer.
  • I could have committed suicide because of lack of guidance and the depth of loneliness consuming everything that I am.

That could have been me. It could have been you. it could have been anyone.

That’s why we should care because we could have been any other person in this world whose situation we look down upon.

Think about it.

But see we never take the time to do so, like we really should.

It makes you more aware and compassionate for people who had different upbringings.

It makes all the difference.

The natural instinct of loving, caring, respect and being understanding of people, it’s there, it is in each and everyone of us.

So find it, use it, and spread it!

Recently, there has been so much madness in the media that mentally it is drowning me. I can’t take one breath or shed one tear without having to mourn for the next inhumane and heinous act of death.

It amazes me the lack of disregard we have for women in this world. The lack of respect that we have for human differences and the amount of ignorance that we are allowing to consume our younger and younger generations.

One story that brought me to tears seeing his photo in court was on a young boy by the name of  Davontae Sanford, from Detroit. He is black and was wrongly convicted of a homicide at age 14. He was kept in jail for 9 years!!!!!!! Mind you, the real killer had confessed somewhere during those nine years and the “justice system” just took their sweet time letting him out.

Things like that break my heart. How dare you abuse your authority like that. How dare you pretend as if your hands are tied up in helping an innocent person, when in reality you’re just waiting for an opportunity that benefits you.

It is so messed up, so messed up.

The false perceptions that we feed into from the media are destroying us. I do not know what to do at this point, does anyone have suggestions?

The system is not “just” at all and it hasn’t been for many years.

Being here in South America has opened up my eyes to the senseless actions of the United States of America’s government over the years and it sickens me.

The elections are coming up and we actually have the devil as the republican candidate?

Does that not open anyone’s eyes, just a little if nothing else going on in the world does?

I know that there are terrible things that occur every day that are not publicized on Tv, Radio, Instagram, Newspaper, or Twitter but that doesn’t make the things that we are informed about less sad, right?

God help us because these days are seemingly are last days …

  1. I’m so glad you found a way to put the thoughts and concerns of today society into something like this, in hopes that someone will read this years from now and learn from it, almost like a history book or time capsule lol. Continue to enlighten the blind and guide the lost 👏🏽

    Everyone seems to disregard this as if we could not have been born into any other circumstance. It is a blessing if we were not.

    Waiting on the day where the nation can come together as brothers and sisters and sisters and forgive each other for our hate and take a step in love together and turn from our wicked ways.

    I love this Chantelle, some people need to read this and form opinions vs being “used” to the hate that happens and just brushing it off.

    I loved it! Keeping opening your mind to write these stories of truth!😘
