This morning, 29 snot nosed little punks were arrested because they decided to wake up early, grab a dunkaccino, and go play in traffic. Literally. Like, what my mom used to tell me to do when I was being…. me. These kids decided to stop morning rush hour traffic by tying themselves together with plastic piping and laying in the middle of the 93 South in Medford, all in the name of police brutality,
Now, I’m all for freedom of opinion, I promise you, I really am. But….. WTF. This is our generation’s hippies. No more burning bras or chanting around campus. We’re taking to the streets (highways, rather) for something that may be a HUGE issue elsewhere, but a case that I highly doubt these community college kids have ever dealt with. I’m not that old, mind you, but I know that if I was underage and drinking in the woods and a cop car pulled up…. if my @$$ wasn’t already halfway home it would be “yes sir” “no sir” or “I don’t know any of those crazy kids, I was the one that called” while talking to cops. Not, let me back talk to the cops and try to steal their gun. Pretty sure it takes little intelligence to realize that like your momma, they’re gonna slap you. But not that stinging open handed slap on the forehead with her ring hand, but with some damn cuffs.
But beyond that. Back to today’s playing in traffic escapade. As quoted from the Lowell Sun;
“The protest was intended ‘to confront white complacency in the systemic oppression of black people in Boston’ the Boston contingent of Black Lives Matter said in a statement.
‘Today, our nonviolent direct action is meant to expose the reality that Boston is a city where white commuters and students use the city and leave, while black and brown communities are targeted by police, exploited, and displaced,’ protester Katie Seitz said in a statement.”
I’m going to bet RIGHT NOW, and I’m not a betting (wo)man…. but I HIGHLY doubt that 100% of the commuters and students that were late today were white. So, basically what my homegirl Katie Seitz was quoted as saying was that only white people go to work and school and commute. REVERSE RACISM! I’m calling it now. These kids were the same ones who voted Obama, not because of his policies, but because he was the almighty “CHANGE”. (I’m not basing Obama right this second, I’m just saying the majority of his votes were first time voters who weren’t informed on politics)
So yes, congrats children of the highway, you got your wish- I’m talking about you and getting your word out. But…. I’m just going to stop right there and say good luck to you in your future endeavors. I can’t wait til your white protesting ass is pulled over for a traffic stop, and the cop sees your last arrest was for laying down on Interstate 93 because cops are bad.
