I’m a dope that actually believes the American dream _is_ theoretically possible if only we could get a handful of asshats out of power positions that don’t belong there.

A lot of sports medicine works with Fascia and other structures. As it’s indirect communication (nerves are embedded but it’s the movement of these structures themselves that can transmit, much like hitting a tabletop to knock off a glass that’s sitting at the edge of the table) – it can get neglected by primary care physicians who focus on things you can pinpoint and not systemic problems.

Not sneak around the house. Not shoot the homeowner. Not go through with his camera to find a legal handgun that was ALL THE WAY in her BEDROOM, far away from her, not AT ALL ANY kind of threat to the officer, and documenting it to cover his ass.

But you see a picture of the black neighbor, who didn’t do a damn thing wrong IF an officer didn’t respond who saw black people as a threat. I’m sharing this post because of this one line: Black people are not a threat.
