Black Officers Creed

When he or she initiates a career in law enforcement…

He or she is often the motif in political agendas; agendas that lack the political substance and support, therefore…

He or she often endures the trials and tribulations, reserved for culprits, although…

He or she is proficient and dignified; to their taskmasters he or she is falsely depicted, incompetent and a prevaricator, withal…

His or her accomplishments are often exploited by their taskmasters; therefore tutelage and honors of distinction are far and in-between, whereby…

His or her comrades often ignore their dedication and character; but are cognizant of their Nubian features and the melanin within, moreover…

He or she is often the target of an offender’s agitation and a comrade’s violence, still he or she remains their protector, eventually…

He or she is celebrated by most for their obligation to public safety, but they are still, despised by some for a commitment to justice and equality…

Yet

He or she is in possession of a strong sense of morality; as seductions will beset his trail…

He or she is methodical as a human and in his thoughts; for his or her confidence and aspirations will plead for this…

Tolerance and fortitude is his or her partner; tolerance smoothes the approach for his or her balanced pondering, while his or her fortitude is infinite…
