Until we get these NRA gun pimps out of our politician’s pockets and find a way to loosen the grip they have on their balls, we will be stuck with good ol “thoughts and prayers”. Which by the way are nice, if I’m sick at home with a bad case of the flu. But when my six year-old child is shot like an animal and their body riddled with bullet holes from a military style assault rifle, do me a favor and put some action behind those thoughts and prayers!
What our white friends, associates, co-workers and in some cases family members need to understand is all people of color don’t have the same level of tolerance for your “ally-ism”.
To be honest, some POC don’t even want your “help” in trying to navigate the waters of racism, sexism, discrimination, micro-aggression and all the other fun adventures that await us the minute we open our eyes every morning.
I wonder how many folks would proudly stand up, remove their hat, put their hand over their heart and “honor” a flag by singing a song (written by a black dude) that talked about killing white people fighting for the rights of other white people…
All black women I know have been in a perpetual mode of SMH at the foolery surrounding the fallout of last year’s election. Our collective mantra has been “WE TRIED TO TELL Y’ALL!” White women on the other hand…speaking strictly about those who voted for 45 and/or “against Hillary” dropped the damn ball. POINT.BLANK.PERIOD!
White People, get you some Black friends!!!
Whether you understand it or not, whether it makes sense to you, no matter how cool we may become, let’s be very clear white people (or any other NON black person). I don’t care if it ends with an ER or an A you can NOT use the word NIGGER. EVER. END OF DISCUSSION!
No build up, let’s take this one straight no chaser. Imagine that next week, I go shopping and buy some slaves…
