Avatar: the Last Airbender

Although it’s a cartoon, there’s a lot relatable truth to what’s going on currently.

The power-hungry nation with one agenda, to seek more power even if it destroys homes and kills innocent lives. The rest of the world living in fear, separated from one another.

Aang, the Avatar, came back to find that his nation had been wiped out by this power-hungry nation. His friends, Katara and Sokka, lost their mom to the same nation. Together, they fight for justice to restore balance and unity in the world.

I’ve rewatched this show several times before, and just finished rewatching it. It’s amazing how a kid’s show can speak truth on so many levels.

Human Decency

It is amazing how there are so many “privileged” people out there feeling the freedom to speak negatively about certain races / communities.

Why are there so much negativity? Why do you have to go on a racist rant? What is it resolving? “Your egotistical-self, thinking everything has to be about you” issue?

“Somehow I clicked onto some live event,” he said after catching himself.

Just don’t be rude and you won’t have to be worried if you’ve accidentally gone live on social media. It’s. Not. That. Hard. To. Be. Kind.

Someone has told me “thanks for proving me that saying no to your hatred is exactly what I needed to do.” This was after putting my owns struggles aside to help this person through a difficult time. This was after being forced to open up and having to talk every day. This same person had the audacity to say that I wanted to talk all day. If anyone knows me, knows I hate talking.

It’s become clearer now than ever that people will instigate until a person or group stands up for themselves and speaks up for themselves. Once this occurs, said person or group are seen as “bad parson” causing trouble and chaos.

Why target a black man running, just running, and kill him?

Why barge into a black nurse’s home and shoot her multiple times, killer her?

Why have the weight of your knee and your whole entire body on top of a black man’s neck for 8 mins and 49 secs, killing him?

Why treat the Black community differently?

Why are we still fighting for equality for communities still?

We are witnessing all of these riots and some are thinking “is this necessary?” Was the Black Wall Street / Tulsa Massacre necessary?

I am tired. The Black community is tired. The LGBT community is tired. It is tiring fighting for equality and to be seen / treated fairly for so long. Let’s learn some human decency and be kind. Treat everyone with kindness. All Lives Cannot Matter until the Black, LGBT, Asian, Mexicans, Indians, and all minorities (not white) are treated fairly.

Sometimes it may require to experience it to understand, but sometimes practicing empathy helps too. If you and your family were treated with such unfairness all of your lives, would you be okay with it or would you stand up and fight for your rights?
