when Black people ask me why dont Black Lives matter to Black People…
I wonder what fucking planet they live on.
“do they speak English in WHAT?”
I live in a society that tells me at EVERY turn that I and mine ain’t shit.
When I rant about oppression, I am called “militant” and “revolutionary” and “troublemaker”.
“we aren’t like you, Dee” “I cant be angry all the time” “Girl you need JESUS”
and then some fucked up shit happens to a child and there is the ritualistic wringing of hands, gnashing of teeth and weeping and wailing…
“LAWDY… WHY DONT BLACK LIVES MATTER TO BLACK FOLKS?”
I believe that a community as oppressed as ours,
needs to stop blaming itself for evidencing oppression.
we don’t control guns, schools, policing in our community.
we don’t even control most churches as too many and ooftah crazed doing MASSA’s bidding, instead of BlackLiberationTheology.
we beat our children as if time has stood still and beating was good enough for my momma, why not me. there was a time that we beat children so Massa wouldnt sell them away, so that the KKK wouldnt lynch them, and the world has changed some and maybe we need to at least think about changing too.
we abandon children to the system- I remember the first time I saw the smoldering rage in the tears of a child publicly betrayed and humiliated by teacher and parent… I promised myself that I WOULD NEVER DO THAT TO MY CHILD. I will kick that ass all the way home, rant and rave all night and start again in the morning, but not in public.
I recall the snear on the face of the white teacher who wanted me to help her emotionally lynch my child. first confusion, then disbelief and then anger. while I sat calmly, ‘no miss ann, that is not what my son said” ” my daughter said the event occured differently” ” how is what you are saying respectful to me or my child”
we have failed to educate our children/ History is both a shield and a sword. Black History Month is most of CPS is driffle about Martin’s Dream and Rosa’s Seat . they dont know Frederick or Harriet or Langston or James.
when was the last time you heard or said “Nigger’s aint Shit”
Black Lives Matter to Black People who have been taught that Black Lives Matter…
