MTV Video Promotes White Guilt, Mocks Police, Justifies Black Lives Matter, and More

OPINION – As their ratings continue to decline, MTV continues its far left-wing politics by releasing a short video entitled “2017 Resolutions for White Guys.”  The MTV video attempts to use humor to show the things “white guys” should change in 2017, including mocking Police, accepting Black Lives Matter, rejecting Blue Live Matter, justifying Beyonce’s actions, poking fun at President-Elect Donald Trump, bashing our legal system, and more. MTV clearly is making a drastic attempt to increase ratings by creating a list, narrated by millennials, who recite various grievances and blame “white guys” for them.

In the video, one narrator states “Also, Blue Lives Matter isn’t a thing.  Cops weren’t born with blue skin. Right? I mean, yeah. They weren’t born blue!”  This is an insult to every law enforcement officer, past, present, and future.  While Blue Lives Matter is an organization, a concept, and a movement, their insult goes much deeper than that.

As law enforcement officers, we do those thankless jobs with high risk and little pay.  We run towards danger, while others seek safety.  We would take a bullet for every millennial on that video and others as well.  It’s our choice to become a police officer, because it’s who we are in our heart and soul.  We chose this profession to make a difference.   And when one of us is hurt, all of us are hurt.  It’s why we’re called the thin blue line, and we refer to each other as our blue family.  That includes officers of all races, and especially black officers who are called ‘Uncle Tom’ for choosing their profession.

An average citizen has no idea of what it takes to become an officer, the annual training that’s involved, the inherent risks we take every time we put that vest on and go to work, If we even have a vest.  No idea of the stress of seeing a dead child, a woman covered with bruises from head to toe, a horrific traffic accident, or having to tell a parent that their child isn’t coming home tonight.  No idea of the stress our families go through, knowing when we leave to work a shift that we may not be coming home tonight.  Or the missed family time, children’s sports and school activities, family events, holidays.  The nights that we can’t sleep for the images that we replay over and over in our mind.  The toll on our bodies as we age, the toll on our marriages, our relationships with our grown children, our relationships with others.

Everyone in law enforcement understands we are a blue family, where we understand each other.  We get our weird sense of humor, why we have to sit in a public place with our back to the wall so we can see everything around us, why we are constantly looking over our shoulder while out in public, why we laugh when we want to cry.  We don’t understand why we aren’t supported and respected as we should be, and we are tired of judgment and perception from others who have no clue of the law, policy, procedure, or protocol.  Or the criminal justice system.

In the video, a narrator states “Can we all just agree that ‘Black Lives Matter’ isn’t the opposite of ‘All Lives Matter?  Black lives just matter. There’s no need to overcomplicate it.” Really?  All Lives Matter — not just black lives.  Narrators also called out Kanye West for his support of President-Elect Donald Trump, Fox News, and made a statement that America has never been great for anyone who wasn’t a white guy.

When asked whether other News Year’s Resolutions videos would be created for various ethnicities, MTV representatives had no comment.  Thanks MTV, for being a voice of dissension and driving the divide in this country even further apart.

We will carry on with our mission despite your disrespect and we will continue to work to make America safe again.
