Wisdom Wednesday with David Simon

David Simon | Trayvon
Today we are going to visit the blog of David Simon, creator of the cable series the "Wire."  David Simon takes a stand against the zimmerman decision. Providing an open letter discussion about America's democratic personality and shares a real thought. The commenting has closed, but there is one comment that stands out. This viewers says,
  1. "I’m glad i do not live in your sick racist country. You simply cannot build a nation on race hatred and expect it to go anytime soon. Im happy the world is watching how your fucked up nation truly operates. Do you really deserve to claim you are the home of democracy with shit like this going on?.

    Forget Iraq, Iran and Afghanistan, don’t mention these places when you want to make a point about democracy. I have seen your disgusting overweight populace, obsessed with self gratification, greed and ignorance (80 per cent of you do not own a passport) make judgements on the rest of the world with no authority whatsoever. Thank you trayvon for Reminding us that none of this has really gone away. Rest in peace."
The first paragraph of his comment hits hard. How can America claim to be a place of democracy; when democracy is not practice. America spends so much time watching, judging and applying force to establish a democratic society elsewhere; but cannot practice this characteristic at home. Now, the eyes of the world is watching oppression here.

David Simon, please forgive us at Create-A-Voice. I wanted to share your wisdom and a comment here on Wisdom Wednesday. Thank you for expressing what other Americans may hide, within themselves. Please visit his blog, for the full story.
