warning - I'm pissed so this isn't going to be pretty
SAY HIS NAME!!!!!!!!!!
They kicked him and they stood on his dead body!!!! HIS DEAD BODY!!!!!!!
I DON’T WANT TO HEAR A DAMN THING DEFENDING THEM
DON’T YOU DARE GIVE ME THAT BS BAD APPLE THEORY
DON’T COME AT ME WITH THAT “NOT ALL COPS ARE BAD” ARGUMENT
THIS ISN’T A DEBATE!
Respect this situation enough to let it sit on your heart and understand that as long as you continue to believe that we are screaming and crying for no reason, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!
I have been giving some people a pass that I never should have because I figured as Non-Black POCs, at some point they would wake up. But they are still complaining about the interruptions to their daily lives.
They are STILL complaining about how they are tired of hearing about politics. THIS ISN'T POLITICS! THIS IS A HUMAN RIGHTS ISSUE!!!!!!
The bottom line is they're still complaining and they aren't complaining about what's happening to us.
Instead, they're still complaining about how our genocide is interrupting their free time.
Here are my demands - and they are minimal at best
No more posts about how tired YOU are of having to hear US talk about OUR rights.
No more posts about how upset YOU are of having to watch US protest during a pandemic.
No more Rodney King soundbites about, “can’t we all just get along?”.
No more borrowing our culture to try on like a jacket and then discard when our struggle inconveniences you.
Realize that if you are ignoring us in the streets, then any small usage of our culture in front of me will be met with the UTMOST RESISTANCE
No more, just no more. The line is drawn in the sand and if you are ignoring this, if you are brushing this off then don’t be surprised when you and I have nothing to talk about.
If these "demands" are too much for you then you need to think about how much Black people actually matter to you.
