I guess I’ll address the white elephant in the room…elephant because it’s huge…white..well because whiteness.
It is with great sadness that I write this concerning white people. Mostly because so many of my friends are of the lighter shade of life. Even my white adjacent friends (light-skinned black folks) don’t get the perks of the porcelain-hued – a little kink in the hair, or if it looks like you’re mixed with something, then the darkness of reality sets in -and you’re treated like the rest of the cattle.
Black people live in a perpetual bad dream – where sometimes we wake up from the nightmare only to be faced with hellish reality. It’s like you’re asleep and you get Freddie, if you’re awake you get Jason, you try to cuddle with a doll…and the doll is chucky. You kill yourself to escape, and you’re met by Pinhead (he was the scariest btw).
The fact that I’m now at a point that I have to assume that a white person is racist until they prove otherwise is disgusting. And even if they prove it, they have to prove it over and over again, because what I’ve learned is that if you push some of them to a limit then they will go clean smooth David Duke on you. The amount of times that my mouth has dropped at the response of some white people that I considered friends is alarming. And to know that they did this because I was speaking truth is worse. It’s like the empirical evidence and claims brought up by a victim of the American experience is offensive to them. Are you offended because I say “white people” and you somehow think that it includes you? Well good, because it does…Just as much as I’m included into the black populous of thugs, criminals, and sketchy individuals that get killed for existing.
The difference is, my true statements about what white people have done is merely stating fact. Your speculation about blacks, gets us killed. Your whiteness is LOUD, the LV shootings speak to that. The fact that the black community gave you all the media and white public responses before they were made public, is ridiculous. If white people EXPECT blacks to be violent…like I don’t know… at the showing of STRAIGHT OUT OF COMPTON – you all beefed up security and started checking peoples bags, as if we’re the ones that shoot up movie theaters. If someone of the muslim faith OR someone that resembles someone of the muslim faith has anything to do with an airplane, then all of hades breaks loose. NOT TO MENTION that measures are always taken to beef up security and detain and question muslims or brown people with funny names. Measures to unjustly stop, frisk, harass, or KILL blacks to neutralize the black threat to society are in place, SO WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP THE DEMOGRAPHIC OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE COMMITTED THE MOST ACTS OF TERROR ON AMERICAN SOIL? WHAT MEASURES WILL BE PUT IN PLACE?
Answer: Not never.
The people that have to make that change look too much like the people that are out here being serial killers, gentrifiers, eating people, wearing people’s skin, eating people’s faces, starting horrific slave trades, buck farming, passing jim crow legislature, attacking peaceful protestors of people that want equality, giving indigenous people diseases that didn’t exist, raping, murdering and pillaging, erasing and white-washing history, starting racism, perpetuating racism, being treasonous and then treating it like heritage (confederates), erecting statues to psychopaths (had Germany erected one of Hitler it would be distasteful but the “jews” are white so….consider their feelings), mass incarcerate people that don’t look like you for more financial gain, exist in privilege and then deny it exists, consistently kill leaders that help blacks progress (all of them), show a KKK movie in the white house….i could literally go on.
So I guess I say all of that to say – white people…please stop white people.
Stop yourselves – check yourselves – call each other out. Fight with us or this cyclical crap will be america’s portion. To the black – this country has never been great. Please help me experience the greatness that you’ve seen and experience. The old way of thinking has to and will die off – it is up to you to INTENTIONALLY raise your children to not carry on what has been – and unfortunately for you this means a relinquishing of power and authority.
I know I’m asking a lot – we are asking a lot. But I have to get this white ass elephant out of our country.
