FORGIVENESS AND RACE

forgiveness is a tricky thing.

I see the stereotype of the loving oppressed Black person  as a person co opted by racism and white supremacy.

in the political theater of history it has been the duty of the oppressed to forgive the oppressor, to avoid greater oppression, or to earn the privilege of less oppression without fear of retaliation.

Yes, on a metaphysical level, forgiveness frees me from the hate and anger and hurt of the wrong done to me,

but in history and literature the forgiveness of the wronged Black is given to the oppressive white without atonement or supplication.

and in this type of situation it supports the notion of most white americans that Black people really dont feel pain, hurt etc.

On 9/11 America vowed NEVER AGAIN.

Richard Gere was booed for suggesting we work toward forgiveness.

The forgiveness of the oppressed is a necessary part of the oppressors daydream, suggesting that it will never become a nightmare.

The oppressor fears, perhaps knows, that he cant withstand a portion of what the oppressed have endured and that twice of what the oppressed have endured are due as his punishment.

It is as much the fear of retaliation as it is of a level playing field.

A HISTORY LESSON:

Y O U

IT IS IMPORTANT, IF NOT ESSENTIAL TO KNOW THE TRIUMPHS, TRIALS, TRIBULATIONS, AND TACTICS OF PRIOR JUSTICE MOVEMENTS

WE STAND ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS

Black Lives Matter to Black People who have been taught that Black Lives Matter…

the struggle is real

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”. im black yall
“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?”

when did we teach Black folks that Black Lives MATTER?flag bondage

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.flag-noose

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”white womens tears collection

“cause you cant sell my baby away from me anymore and BITCH you dont own me either.”patsey pinky tea

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 DreamMLK hands up and Rosa’s Seat . they dont know Frederickfrederick douglass 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…

By Any Means Necessary!malcolm x

We Still Rise… We Will Win

how is it a people who have been subjected to being
Kidnapped,
Transported against our will,
Enslaved,
Bought and Sold,
Lynched,
Raped,
Murdered,
Segregated,
Subjected to NO or SubQuality Education, Health care, Nutrition, Housing..

All while being told it was Our Own Fault…

Stripped of Our native languages, traditions, rituals, and relations…

Subjected to all types of theories of our inferiority, justifications for our mistreatment…

How is it that WE ARE THE BACKBONE OF THE AMERICAN CULTURE?

HOW GREAT ARE WE!!!

and know you know why some work so hard at keepin us down.

after all the racists, sadistic, genocidal, murderous, shameful and sinfilled oppression that they have thrown at us…

WE STILL RISEstill rise black proud

Black in america – the struggle continues.

white privilege allows

fragile white people to ignore that

white supremacy denies the

humanity and citizenship of

Black People and kills us.

it allows white people to ignore

structural and systemic racism and its generational effects.

it is the ignorant and arrogant energy behind “all lives matter”

behind justifying death for a toy gun or knowing your rights.

behind  the humanity and humane treatment of white male mass murderers, domestic terrorists.

to treat Black children like adults.

to consume their own souls denying Black Humanity.

to destroy themselves attempting to destroy Black Livesblack power salute

protect fragile white tears -NOT!!!

white privilege allows fragile white people to ignore that white supremacy denies the humanity and citizenship of Black People and kills us.

it allows white people to ignore structural and systemic racism and its generational effects.

it is the ignorant and arrogant energy behind “all lives matter”

behind justifying death for a toy gun or knowing your rights.

behind  the humanity and humane treatment of white male mass murderers domestic terrorists

what Price Racism?

when the police wrongfully kill an unarmed Black citizen and there is a civil lawsuit.
the money comes from the taxpayers. the city of Chicago paid out over 50 million in the last fiscal year. what is the CPS budget shortfall?

when peace loving protesters march engage in civil disobedience. the cost are born my them and the rest of the taxpayers. overtime, extra shifts,
HOW LONG WILL YOU LET RACISM, WHITE SUPREMACY AND FRAGILE WHITE PRIVILEGE TAX THE CITIZENS?

AND DON’T ASK PEOPLE NOT TO PROTEST INJUSTICE dont be lazy and stupid and shortsighted with a irrational kneejerk response..

DEMAND JUSTICE
DEMAND ANSWERS
DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY
DEMAND RACIAL EQUALITY

I have always wondered why a country that prides itself on EXCEPTIONAL-ISM wouldn’t pour a lot more money time and energy into education across race,gender, class lines.

what is the cost of racial inequality and social injustice?
