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”

here is the disconnect and the myth of the level playing field

so here is the disconnect

if you believe that the playing field is level
that God is just and merciful

then oppressed people in some way deserve being oppressed.

you are not a bad person for oppressing these people
you certainly arent a bad person from benefiting from the oppression of these people by others.

and you are still a good person when you silently ignore the needs and pleas of the oppressed

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

you and your fragile privilege 

To all my nonBlack Friends and followers.
HAVE YOU EVER BEEN THE ONLY MEMBER OF YOUR RACIAL/CULTURAL GROUP ANYWHERE AT ANYTIME?
How did it feel?

Are you familiar with the concepts of cognitive dissonance and implicit bias?
I ask because today I experienced something that heretofore I had only read about.

Studs Terkel writes about a white woman getting lost in a Black neighborhood and freaking out when people start shouting at her from the sidewalk.

What she didn’t realize at the time was that she was going the wrong way on a one-way street and people were just trying to warn her yet in this situation she perceived only danger

.
Today coming home I followed behind a car off of Lake Shore Drive that didn’t seem real sure where it was going and it turned at my regular corner where I turn to head home and then again on the cross street that takes me to my block and then again on to my one-way street.
The car then pulled over to the side to let me pass by presuming that I was following them,

the problem is they pulled over to block my driveway.

First,I waited behind the car and signaled that I wanted to turn, thinking they would see my turn signal in their review mirror and realize that they were blocking my driveway.

Then, I pulled up next to her car window is signaled for her to rolled down her window. At this point I think the white woman in the car with the two children began to panic because Chicago is so dangerous at 1 o’clock in the afternoon. She shook her head, looked straightforward and

Window up, refusing to look around, she locked her doors.

At which point I developed an attitude and leaned on my horn until she looked at me.

She rolled down her window and screamed “leave me alone! what do you want for me”

To which I responded not so calmly “bitch you are blocking my fucking driveway! get out of my way so I can go home. ”
It took minutes for her to register what was happening.

Now another car is coming down the street and I pull into an open spot in front of a neighbors house. The woman pulls out and leaves my block.
I wonder if she realizes that while she might have been lost she was never in danger.

Implicit bias. Cognitive dissonance.

Blocking my mutha fukkn driveway

BULLSHIT!!! He was a great LION but PEOPLE ARE BEING KILLED

BULLSHIT!!!!
this is not about multitasking it is about prioritizing.

Foreign Lions have more value than BLACK LIVES.

the same people who are crying for Cecil are often claiming that Sandra was uppity and Freddie was guilty and Mike was a thief.

these are some of the same people who respond to BLACK LIVES MATTER with ALL LIVES MATTER or some other bullshit.

don’t come at me without a full appreciation and understanding or race in America.naomi check your lipstik

the mutilation and destruction of black bodies is as much a part of the racists structure of american psyche as privilege.

♫ say you want a revolution…

how do we attack, dismantle and destroy structural racism?flag-noose

some questions, the answers to which will lead to the solution include;
what is the historical context of the problem? IMG_1559
for the each of the factors that flag bondagecontributes to the problem there are communities and persons who benefit.
these must be identified in order to address and neutralize them.flag prison

the haphazard approach to addressing the problem has failed repeated at worse and have limited gains at best.flag lynching

You as a white person in America want to believe the lies despite all the evidence to the contrary.

Systemic and structural racism are real and killing people of color.

No I won’t apologize for it and won’t lie to make you feel better.
