How is Black on Black crime different from white on white crime?
We live in a segregated society and crime is often defined by proximity.
The police however have taken an oath and sworn a duty to serve and protect.
They are trained and armed and sent into our community by the government, by the state.
They murder us with the
equipment of the government.
generations of segregation and poor quality education.
generations of segregation and limited access to economic resources.
generations of segregation… poor quality nutrition and medical care access.
generations of segregation and internalized racism damaged, racialized self esteem .
AND WE ARE STILL HERE.
we SURVIVE and THRIVE in the most OPENLY HOSTILE environment.
generations of enslavement, lynching, police brutality, respectability politics, murder, poverty
and WE ARE STILL HERE
do you really wonder why they FEAR US!!!
we are a mighty and resilient people
WE GONNA BE ALRIGHT
Before you good liberal whites start off with It had nothing to do with race
Before you selfhating racial confused ooftah blacks start with it had nothing to do with race
He is not terrified. he is a vicious violent racist. He is blind to her humanity as she sits there screaming for her mother. He would loose his mind if some one did that to a white child. So terrified that he had to SIT ON HER. that is not terror. not for him. that is inhuman savagery. that is base and vile. what self respecting man does that to an unarmed child. that is the mentality that enslaved and lynched and raped and believed it was ok because white jesus said so in a book he never read and wouldn’t understand if he did. the list of what black people arent allowed to do grows and now includes swimming. But a comparison to Apartheid or reference to genocide would be inappropriate here. i cant wait for the comments -“It had nothing to do with Race”
Dude said that only bad black kids get murdered by the police,
good black kids stay put of trouble.
I asked: so an honor student has a greater right to live than a struggling student.
math and science students are worth more than vocational students. oh and wait. the killer knew what type of student they were when they were killed.
My sons dont wear a sign that says that state that
they are academically and musically and athletically gifted,
a list of courses taken,
from a close knit loving family.
my sons look like every other black man in America
(but more handsome and intelligent, I love them..).
none of what they know or do will stop some privilege racist cop from killing them and lying about what happened.
the fuckery and foolishness of the willfully uninformed, the arrogantly ignorant and the silence of alleged allies and terrified unaffected, damns this situation to fester and re-occur.
the life of every black mother’s son must matter just as much as the life of every white mothers son..
