We rode along with Binghamton Police Officers to try to determine if there is a reason for People of Color, or any residents of Binghamton, NY, to have a concern or fear of Police. We thank the Binghamton Police Department for the opportunity to learn the answer first-hand.
Black Lives Matter
On a matter far from conclusion in our society, the reduction of individuals to checkbox categories while compelling speech and thought is a troubling trend.
A review of 2016, including three TOP 10 lists
The action of Binghamton University to embrace openly racist thought under the guise of sensitivity training, at a time in the nation where hate speech has been heralded and the violence that it births has been justified, should invoke a public outcry and deep concern from the general student body.
While most in the nation might question a right to parity that does not exist in the Constitution or Amendments, at least the Binghamton version of Black Lives Matter apparently consider this to be a fundamental fact that has motivated this protest.
In the end, do Black lives matter? As much, and no more, as all lives matter. But to have to say that is ludicrous, as preserving life is the major tenant of all religions and law and morality.
