In light of recent events regarding Donald Sterling, a friend of mine, reached out to me, wondering where he could express his feelings on the issue. Looks like, the topic has been the source of a lot of anger and judgment with limited outlets to express them.
Well, long story short, here is a rant from “anonymous” on the issue. If you want to rant on the topic,feel free to do so in the comments section. With no further ado, here is “Anonymous”:
It’s not about Donald Sterling. It’s about us, as people driving the conversation with hate and anger in our hearts. Let’s realize as people, that when we do that, we are no different than him.
As a community we have the responsibilities and we are accountable for ourselves and each other’s action. We must ask… What are we focused on!? Are we focused on the reteric or solutions. Are we more interested in the “news” story or are we more interested in making a difference?
How can we ask of Donald Sterling to be a loving caring human being and live life with the absence of judgment, if we judge him and drive the conversation with a negative rhetoric? It is very obvious that Donald Sterling has unacceptable views. But, let’s choose to realize that as a community, we have a choice to embrace each other with love, caring, and compassion versus the anti. Ultimately,
Love is what can bring people to the light and compassion will only create more compassion if you choose to give it away. If we want others to be loving, caring and compassionate, then we have to choose to be it ourselves first, and then give it away to others.
