I'll be honest with you people : what happened in France some days ago is unacceptable.
The last days have been chaotic in place that are like 5 minutes away from my friends.
There's has been several big crimes after the Shooting in Charlie Hebdo. I'm shit scared for my friends and I am utterly disappointed in how people would shoot you for your opinion.
With that said, and adding that I support Charlie Hebdo, I am not Charlie : there's been a wave of "Je suis Charlie" in France and of course when it seems to be the right thing, everyone feel obligated to just jump in : with all due respect, I do not like the work of Charlie Hebdo, wether they are alive or not. I know, it's extremely harsh, but I want you to google Charlie Hebdo, check the pictures, and tell me what you think.
Before telling me what you think, answer this : does those picture look like "a symbol of liberty"?
For me it's mostly about sex jokes and dissing religion. I am not muslim, I am not a terrorist, and I am not saying that killing 12 peoples for sex jokes is acceptable, because it isn't : what I want to say is, I am not willing to say that I am something that I'm not because of what happened : it's just feel too easy for people to jump in, Charlie Hebdo has never been popular, and a lot of people hated this journal, but now everyone in France is "Charlie". Really? just like that.
And the worst thing about that is, you have right now in Nigeria a slaughter, with terrorist burning down village and shooting people at sight. There's probably thousands of victim, 20 000 people who left their life and home to move to a safe place, and I almost missed that news.
I tend to have most of the news headlines on social network, I haven't saw more than 3 people being concerned by that on my end. Why? maybe because they are not Charlie too.
I'll repeat myself because I know some people will read in diagonal :
I do not support the execution in Charlie Hebdo.
The journalists didn't deserve to die like that, and neither their bodyguard.
They have my support and if I was still praying I'd make a prayer for each one of them.
but I do not consider Charlie Hebdo as the jewel of freedom of speech.
And I sure don't like this mentality around buzz that make even media completely
ignore a whole country crisis.
