Dallas, Texas, June 08, 2015 — Mike Ghouse, president of Americans Together strongly denounced the mistreatment of fellow Americans who are Black by a police officer in McKinney. In a civilized society, this is not acceptable to either God or us. It will create distrust in the society, which will lead to anarchy and chaos. None of us want this to happen.

A few in McKinney police department lack sensitivity. There was no need for the police officer to use the foul language to show off his authority, was he trained to stereotype the Blacks, that they will understand foul language? There is discipline and there is an abuse, a police officer is a protector of the safety of our citizens and not an abuser of those who look different. All of this needs to be addressed and investigated thoroughly.
We have come a long way in learning to respect the otherness of others. Our founding fathers laid it out in our immortal declaration of independence that we were all created equal, indeed we are. That declaration pays the highest tribute to God, that he created all of us with his will. God is a good guy and we need to accept his will for each one of us to be different.
To those men and women who are biased towards the others, please wake up, and don’t live in fear and pass that on to your children. Don’t mess with their future, and don’t make them unfits to live in a pluralistic society. Very soon, you will find people of different faiths, cultures, ethnicities, races, nationalities and social backgrounds working, eating, playing, marrying, and doing things together. Prepare them for it, rather than prison them in your own tiny silos.
We need to prepare ourselves for those eventualities to prevent possible conflicts, and lay a good foundation for nurturing goodwill and effective functioning of the societies. Exclusive communities will become a thing of the past. If you live amidst others, you must also respect the otherness of others, as you expect them to do the same for you.
Let’s be brave and free and learn to live and let live.
