With the death of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, along with the numerous other deaths, it’s easy to let out emotions to get the better of us and to assume it’s a race thing.
In 2015, 990 Americans were shot dead by police, and 494 being white and 258 being black.
It’s not a race thing. It’s not a black thing. It’s not even a white thing. It’s a horrific reality that involves all of us as Americans. We should treat the problem as if it effects us all, because according to the stats, it does. All lives matter!
People that say it’s a black make the police seem racially motivated, and the stats do not support that. The police shot dead more whites than blacks by a huge margin. But, like I stated earlier, this isn’t a race thing.
Based on the same stats, one could argue that the police really have it in for males. White males at that, but the media doesn’t cover. I honestly can’t recall the last time a cop received media attention for killing a white male. But, honestly, it’s not a race thing.
The problem is that our police are so eager to escalate situations and seem rather trigger happy. Not saying all cops are. They’re good ones out there. But there is definitely a problem and I’m willing to bet it stems from training.
Who doesn’t like money? Hipsters that already have money and don’t have to pay bills. This post is meant for the authors. A simple break down of the stories posted in 2016 and the views, likes, and comments. If your work for whatever reason does not earn more than $5, I’ll send you $5 anyway. Honestly, there are stories with stats that are less than desired, especially considering the quality of the work.
When do you get paid? I generally wait a few months after the work was published to send payment. You should know when your story was published. If you don’t, you can find the date on your work’s post.
If you write horror or if you’re an author of dark and demented fiction, then feel free to submit your work. Deadman’s Tome is growing, and its because of the constant release of material, the networking on social media, and the focus on community engagement.
