If you can talk you can breathe

The Problem With the “I-Can’t-Breathe” Movement in Support of Eric Garner

By Ken K. Gourdin

Here, along with a link to news of a counter-rally, is the problem with the whole “I-can’t-breathe” movement, which ostensibly has taken place in support of Eric Garner and other purportedly-unjustified, purportedly-unjustifiable actions by law enforcement.

“I Can’t Breathe!”

(If you can say that, you’re breathing.)

And here is the promulgator of a t-shirt with another great piece of advice on the subject:

About kenngo1969

Just as others must breathe to live, I must write. I have been writing creatively almost ever since I learned to write, period! I have written fiction, book- and article-length nonfiction, award-winning poetry, news, sports, features, and op-eds. I hope, one day, to write some motivational nonfiction, a decent-selling novel, a stage play, and a screen play.
