Cut Throat   

You wouldn’t know it to look at me but I am a cut throat when it comes to unfriending people who post disinformation to their Facebook pages.

I don’t need someone to put up political garbage which is false and misleading without doing even the tiniest bit of research themself.

I spotted what was clearly an inflammatory picture of a bruised woman and a statement claiming that she was beaten, kidnapped, robbed, and had her unborn child threatened by George Floyd.

I instantly suspected it was disinformation and a simple google search did in fact confirm it as such.

I removed this person from my friends list.

I just don’t have time to waste reading that kind of garbage in my Facebook stream.

I don’t want to cultivate friendships with people who harbor racism in their hearts.

I don’t need to maintain relationships with anyone who can’t complete a simple google search before passing on disinformation.

Nope.

Not gonna do it.

What happened to George Floyd was a tragedy and false attempts to malign him or try to justify what happened will not be tolerated.

I’m happy to report that I didn’t even need to post a response to this person’s Facebook post.

People were posting all over with links proving that his post was disinformation and completely incorrect on many levels.

The world is learning.

Perhaps slower than we’d like, but we’re learning.
