How Stupid Can People Be?

I just read and article where the Maryland Governor said the ‘lives of people of color are valued less’ than whites. Now, I’m not sure what world he’s living in, but ALL human life is important. Personally, I find the number of black on  black murders to be just as disturbing as any terrorist attack. No one, I repeat NO ONE, no matter who they are, deserves to have their life taken from them without having a trail to defend themselves. 

Every time I see the death of a drug dealer, I see two tragedies and a wrong. The first tragedy is the person losing their life. The second is what happens to the parents, sibling, children and friends in the aftermath. And the wrong? The crime of ending someone’s life. 

Now, with that said, how is that valuing life more for some than others? Are there people I think are utterly depraved and are probably better off removed from this world? Yes. Do I think it needs to be done? No. 

Whether someone believes in God or not, we’re all made in the image of our creator and if He is upset by the death or a sparrow, then what does He feel about us? Indifferent? I doubt that. 

It’s long since past time for us to learn how to coexist as a species and move forwards. Our future is in space or we will die off…plain and simple. Let’s get going.
