Racism and Politics…Humans

Note from the management of Padre Tatro’s Study: Today I’m going to talk about two maybe three hot-button issues. The biggest is mental health. We need mental health reform in this nation, more access to it, and better treatment of those who suffer from it. I will also touch on racism and politics in this post so now that you know what is in store let’s get on with the show.

Well, we all know about the current entertainment scandal involving Rosanne Barr.  While I think what she did was disgusting and filled with malice and venom, there is no excuse for racism.  While we are on the subject of racism…When are people going to wake up and realize there is only ONE RACE and that is the HUMAN RACE!!! (I intended not to preach so I’ll leave that alone).

Also since then, Barr — in addition to apologizing — has blamed her tweet on Ambien (Psychology Today, Fox News), and additionally blamed Dissociative Identity Disorder  {Also known as Multiple Personality Disorder…What is D.I.D? Here are some links for you to explore: D.I.D Research in DSM V., NAMI, Psychology Today, Cleveland Clinic }, (Larry King, ABC News Rolling Stone Magazine), that she says she has received 16 years of psychiatric help to cure (by the way there is no cure for D.I.D.) Rosanne needs to stick to comedy and put up her electronics at night. It is very hard to prove to a psychiatrist that one indeed has Dissociative Identity Disorder, so I do hope she is seeking treatment for it (if she has it).

The one question I have in this whole mess with social media… and it may just open a can of worms here…but why isn’t our president given the same respect that Valerie Jarrett is getting in the wake of this.  Hell why isn’t everyone in this world given the same respect?

Valerie is who crossed the line and made this political (Tone Starts with Him).  I’m sorry but the treatment of  Mr. Trump (Note Bene: I’m no Trump supporter) has received since before he even won the Presidential Election of 2016 is beyond contempt.

Tweets filled with vulgarity, comedians taking pictures with a severed head, etc… I’m sorry but having outrage over what Rosanne did is fine and dandy but when you do the exact same thing (Show Malice Towards Another) to someone who you don’t agree with,  there is something drastically wrong; in other words Two Wrongs Do Not Make A Right.   Now we know full well that Mr. Trump has his own issues with not thinking and Tweeting, so we don’t need to go fully into that.

Let’s give the President less negative attention and actually focus on what is wrong in our nation.  Like low wages, high costs of shelter/food/medical care/insurance/gasoline/oil…the list can go on almost indefinite.  We might just get a few things accomplished.

This country needs to take a deep breath, stretch and have a come to God moment.  We are all children of the Father.  We must treat each other like the Brothers and Sisters we are.  Just stop hating…stop the HATE…there is no reason for it.  Love comes naturally, and you have to be taught to hate.  I know I said I intended not to preach, but we know that is an occupational hazard for me. We must show love/kindness to each other…after all we have to live on the same planet so why don’t we just try to see each other as members of the HUMAN RACE and not spew hate towards each other.  Remember the Golden Rule (not He Who Hath The Gold Maketh the Rules, but instead Do unto others as we would want them to do unto us) and Pay Forward Kindness, Love, and Civility.

Remember God Loves You and So Do I!
