                                             The Talk...

This week a grand jury voted not to indict the two police officers involved in the shooting of 12 year old Tamir Rice;

Incidents like these have made it almost mandatory for parents of children of color to have the talk with their kids. Something that seems inconceivable in this day in age in a country that professes to be advanced and civilized;

Imagine if Timothy Loehman's parents;
had had a similar talk with their son when he was a teenager.
Perhaps the out come of  November 22, 2014 would have been much different...

I can't help but wonder what the out come would have been if Tamir had been white?

When set next to the case of Ethan Couch;
it is difficult not to wonder what if...

We wish you a happy New Year.

Noodle and crew


  1. No comments from me/us on US politics, since it's not our country! We'd just like to say thanks for taking the time to stop by and that we wish you a fantastic new year, one that brings you everything your heart and soul need and much of what you want too. :-)

  2. Hey Noodle, I sure do wish everyone could just play nice together. Even cats and dogs do it.

  3. You always look so peaceful Noodle. Have a happy and blest day and 2016.

    Luv ya'

    Dezi and Lexi

  4. We really dont unnerstand the Bein stuff about not liking differnt appearances...

  5. Happy New Year, Noodle and crew. I hope and pray things will change in 2016 and humans will become civil but sadly that doesn’t seem to be in the cards.

  6. Great photo, Noodle!

    Humans should learn to respect one another and animals too. We are all one.

    Purrs xx

    Happy 2016 Noodle; thank you for your social awareness. As an observer outside the USofA, must admit I shake my head at times... but such disparities are also present in other Western nations. Sadly, it has ever been thus and, I fear, will ever be. YAM xx
