My high school history teacher had a cat-o-nine-tails on his wall and beneath it a plaque which read, "The floggings will continue until morale improves." I am reminded of this as I think of the racial tension in the United States.
Non-whites feel that they are treated worse than whites during routine police matters, even harmed or killed for no reason and insist on immediate punishment before any facts are out and the legal process begins.
Many feel they need to vandalize businesses, disrupt political rallies, taunt and shout vulgarities at police while holding their iPhone hoping they can push one or two past their breaking point and lately, ambushing and murdering the very police who are protecting what is supposed to be a peaceful assembly.
Why? I suppose some believe that by behaving this way they will earn the love and respect they deserve. In other words, "The floggings will continue..."
