How Much Does it Cost to Whistleblow?

There aren't too many people in this world that would give up their clothes, shoes, food, and other basic needs in this life for a fellow brother or sister.  Matter of fact, they are the ones who will tell you to be quiet when you should be speaking up and speak up when you ought to keep your mouth closed.  Those who remember what it was like to have nothing, don't want to go back so they have a master's degree in C.Y.A.  In case you don't know, you may have heard this out on the street, "Cover your own a**!"  Others who remember everything from the butt-whippings to the threats that were made on their lives for telling truth have long been beaten into submission.  This is why, dare I say it, some of our so-called "wise" elders aren't good for too much of anything except taking us back to the days of haves and have-nots--what did they really learn?  Does this describe you?  Look around and what do you see in our communities?  Enough said. 

Has someone closed up your mouth, backed you into a corner, or told you in so many words, "Say something again and I will..." so you said, "I don't want any trouble, all I was trying to do was..."  Maybe I'm not talking to you, but your friend.  Well I have seen this sort of thing, not just offline with relatives and friends, but online too!  People who once were very vocal speaking truth about this issue and that one, gaining some steam and a following, and sharing real truth, have been watered down.  The fire is out!  They are reaching for topics to talk about that are, dare I say it, safe, nice, sweet, and politically correct, etc.

So how much does it cost to whistle blow? Well it all depends on who you ask.  If you ask someone 70 plus, they might not care much about what this one and that one says/does, "I'm dying anyway so I don't give a d*mn what anyone thinks.  I will tell you like this..."  If you ask a rebellious teen who has been in so much trouble that he can't see a way out, he might say, "I don't care whether I live or die, so I will snitch on whoever!"  Then you have many who rather just live life quietly, "Don't get me involved!  I'm not interested in what they are doing on the umpteenth floor...just let me be!"

If you are going to live long in this life, sooner or later you will be put in a position to have to open up your mouth on this issue or that one whether you want to or not especially when it has something to do with your bread and butter. 

Someone or a group is going to expect you to say something and if you move right, there will be a consequence and if you move left, there will be a consequence.  Either way you look at it, you are stuck!  Some will just take the plea bargain, others will keep quiet until someone beats them so bad that they wished they had talked, while many will just lie, fake ignorance, or run their mouths to the point that everyone in the group will be in danger.  No matter what one does, the truth is going to get out and many will be asking in the future, "Where is God in all of this?" 

I alerted you to how the media uses stories to make them black related in a previous post then low and behold if the manifesto, allegedly written by a black man, wasn't circulated all over the news!  I tried to see us in it and posted accordingly even with doubts about the whole thing.  

But the question remains, when it is your turn to speak, confront your enemies, will you come forward and say, "They are lying...they don't know what they are talking about...that man is innocent...that woman didn't do it...You a lie, I didn't do anything!"  Notice, no one connected to Dorner declared his innocense while he was supposedly on the run.  Would your family get on every television screen, be in the news, and elsewhere saying, "I know my child...He is an honest person...There is no way my brother did this!"  It seems that the programming is working, blacks beaten into submission, keep quiet.  "Don't start organizing, putting hoods up, and all that...we know you're kind.  You just believe what we tell you, that Obama type of black did it--that's right a nice looking, intelligent black did it!  Yeah, we know you saw him throw some stuff away--oh no we didn't prompt him to do anything... Oh the video of him killing and shooting officers, no we don't have that, not yet...but keep on spreading the word, he did it," says those who know how to work the media to their advantage.

The civil rights leaders of yesteryear are getting old, dying, or paid off which means there won't be any one to call, come to your neighborhood, or name drop when non-blacks wrong you.  "I'll just call Al Sharpton, Louis Farakhan or Jessie Jackson..." 

It's only a matter of time that someone or a group will rise up and sway public opinion systematically against any one of us, edit our videos, mishandle our quotes, lie on us or our loved ones, then what?  "Don't do what they think you might do, flip the script on them," an older gentleman told me one day.

Just something to think about.
