Listen, we ALL know you don’t get to be a pageant girl because of your big brains. Growing up, I watched Miss America every year… it was so exciting and seemed SO DOABLE to win the contest. When they came to the answer and question section the questions were so easy and the answers were so simplistic, that as a 10-yr-old I was pretty sure I could kick all their butts. Now that I’m older, I know a lot more goes into those pageants than what goes upstairs. What’s downstairs is 99% of the competition. With that knowledge I think it’s really cute that Miss Alabama, Kalyn Chapman James made a video trying to share her eloquent opinion on the massacre of Police Officers last week.
She probably used her tremendous knowledge of history and philosophy to develop it. I’m sure she took much time to reflect on what words she could use that would lift and inspire and not be divisive, incite violence or reveal that she’s really only… a beauty queen. Let’s watch her video, shall we (see below)? She said WHAT?
“I don’t feel sad for the officers who lost their lives … I know that’s not really my heart. I value human life. And I want to feel sad for them but I can’t help but feeling like the shooter was a martyr.”
YEP! A dude shoots as MANY Police Officers as he can with the intent to kill many because they are white and cops and he’s a martyr? That’s based on NO history or philosophy… maybe she got it from the school of pageantry and she assumed the shooter would have looked AWESOME in a pair of swim trunks. Thanks goodness the girl is pretty because well… at least she’s pretty and can’t starve. Wait WHAT? She was fired? Are you kidding me that a pageant girl was fired for her opinion? I mean, she wasn’t hired for her opinion was she? Well, she felt bad later (for feeling bad that she didn’t feel bad about the police officers deaths) and decided to recant what she said:
“My heart and my mind were conflicted because these are difficult and very emotional times for so many people. I went to church to address my feelings and deal with them from a perspective of forgiveness and love. Especially forgiving myself for feeling that way.
I regret that any people lost their lives this week and I am saddened by all of the shootings that occurred. But, this is not about me. When reading about the killings of those black men, I was mortified by some of the comments about them. Many People were not conflicted at all about those deaths. Some were okay with this.
These are raw wounds that are fresh and, while I apologize if I offended anyone, I cannot help the way I feel as I continue to process these events and deal with the flood of emotions that come from witnessing such atrocities – both against citizens and officers of the law.
The fact that my opinion was considered newsworthy makes me feel like speaking up was exactly what I should do, because I can voice what so many people are feeling and dealing with and they should know they are not alone.
I reiterate that I do not condone violence or killing at all. I offer my deepest condolences to all the families who lost their loved ones this week, including the officers in Dallas.”
She then concluded “And World Peace for everyone… except white Police officers” and walked away waving and smiling with so much grace and pageantry. WATCH Video Below… don’t get angry, seriously consider the source.
