I'm not sure why I can never get a post about my opinion of what's going on outside of the world of college or dating or the typical lifestyle bloggers posts. Maybe it's because most people are stubbornly closed minded about their own opinions or the certain back lash you could get from said stubborn people. I know that's definitely part of it, stubbornly closed minded people are also why I want to delete most of my friends on Facebook.
Specifically right now, with the aftermath of Ferguson literally on every other post. I worry about liking the wrong post and getting scolded by someone who believes differently. Liking a post supporting the judges decision and then getting virtually yelled out because black lives matter, yes they do. He didn't deserve to die, but he shouldn't have attacked a cop either. Your religious views and political stand points are in no way something that you should get yelled at or ridiculed for.
Even just posting this, I don't want to say I was raised Catholic or that I'm not a registered voter because I don't want anyone trying to prove to me why my views are wrong or why I should vote for a certain someone simple on my race or working status. No; I was raised Catholic, I have my questions and doubts, but that's what I was raised to believe. And no again; I'm not going to vote for a man or women because of their skin color or gender, for me to go out and actually register myself and vote, I'd have to really believe in someone.
So why are some people, like me, afraid to post their opinions versus those who post so openly? It's simple, we don't want drama. I don't want to post my honest opinion on the current president and have some one who thinks they know better posting various long paragraphs as to why I don't know shit. Or how I support the judge because of physical evidence, I watch too many cop shows to know you can't mess with physical evidence, he didn't deserve to die but physical evidence is far more reliable then eye-witnesses.
We shouldn't be afraid to post our opinions, I just did and hopefully I don't loose any readers because of it, but why do people have the need to talk trash to those who don't agree with them? Just listen to what people have to say and if you don't agree with them, well listen to what most mom's should have taught you; if you don't have anything good to say, don't say anything at all. Your opinion matters, but negativity isn't going to get you anywhere.
