Oh Desert Vista High School

An African American teacher by the name of Dr. Cecily Cobb filed a lawsuit against the school she worked for by the name of Desert Vista High School back in 2014. She witnessed racial discrimination and racism in the school and her reports went ignored. Fast forward a year and some change from now and you have these students who are joyfully expressing their racism. What is it about racism that people refuse to understand? What do people tell themselves to pacify the reality of this epidemic? How is this is any way okay? What don't people understand about this? This is so real and this happens all the time in familiar and unfamiliar forms. Sometimes subtle sometimes not so subtle. What is going on?

What moves you?

First blog in a long time but I have my reasons. Instead of drowning you with excuses let us just get right to it.

I was feeling froggy so I jumped and needed to get this off of my chest.

I have somewhat of a fetish or a passionate drive for fairness and justice. Today I finally watched the first three episodes of #MakingAMurderer and I just was flabbergasted with the neglectful practice of the law. To anyone who has watched this Netflix series you get a glimps into a man who was wrongfully imprisoned for a crime he did not commit. And the police of Manitowoc, Wisconsin seemed HELL BENT  on destroying Steven Avery's life. There is literally no subsistence or evidence to imprison this man yet they found a way to do so.

What is even more astonishing is that there seems to be no accountability whatsoever for the corruption over the people who are supposed to be the fabric of our society. Or so they say. Steven Avery diligently waited for his freedom and stuck to his guns by not admitting guilt to anything even if it ment less time for him or a chance to breath air from the outside of prison for 18 years. 

I'm at a loss for words as to how people are allowed to frame someone for something they did not do. Who do we call when something bad is being done by the people doing it? How do we restore trust in authority of there is no accountability of honesty?
