RACISM WILL PERSIST IF PEOPLE KEEP TALKIG ABOUT IT
NOT EVERYTHING IS ABOUT RACE
YOU BRINGING IT UP MAKES IT WORSE
"WHY DOESNT ANYONE UNDERSTAND"
Because you’re wrong.
The only thing that still exists is hate … Apparently spread by you.
I didn’t see this until AFTER I responded to your ask, so let me just hit you high and low real quick.
First of all, that “black on white crime is the most prevalent and it’s RACISM!!” Bullshit you left in my inbox? Yeah, no. But let’s talk about “black on white crime”, huh?
Like the white woman who said she’d been carjacked by a black man who drove off with her kids, and made numerous public pleas for their safe return. Turns out, she’d strapped them in and driven the car into a body of water.
Or the white woman who threw acid on herself and said a black woman did it.
Or the white man who claimed a black man forced his way into their car, made them drive off, then robbed and shot them killing his pregnant wife. Turns out, he just didn’t want to be a dad and worried it would make his wife a stay at home mom and threaten their financial livelihood.
Or the white woman who claimed a black man who was angered by the John McCain sticker on her car carved a B for Barack into her face to “teach her a lesson,” but it’s kind of hard to believe you when the B is carved backwards…as in the way one would carve it into their own face while looking in the mirror.
Or the white woman who claimed she and her daughter had been kidnapped by two black men and thrown in the back of a black Cadillac SUV. She turned up at motherfucking Disneyworld with her daughter.
And let’s talk about Trayvon Martin, shot while walking home unarmed. Now deceased. His acquitted murderer is now running amok and has been arrested for -GASP- violent crimes involving a gun. The same gun Trayvon was shot with, which was returned to him.
And Rekia Boyd, shot by an off duty police officer. Also unarmed, also deceased.
And Renisha McBride, shot while seeking help following a car accident and was subsequently SHOT IN THE FACE. Also unarmed, also deceased.
And Jonathan Ferrell, a woman called police because he knocked on her door to ask for help following a car accident and was subsequently shot ten times by police. Also unarmed, also deceased.
And DJ Maiden, who was SHOT IN THE FACE AT RANDOM, while outside playing tag, by a man who did not even live in his neighborhood. He is eight, survived, and now believes he looks like a monster, Oh, yeah, and he was unarmed.
Or, alternatively, let’s turn back the clock and talk about Emmitt Till, who’s case I will not link to you because the pictures of his dead body trigger me, but encourage you to google at your own risk, who was kidnapped by two white men because he was falsely accused of whistling at a white woman, then beaten, shot, and had his body weighted and thrown into the bottom of a river.
Pointing out racism when I see it is not hate. If you can’t take someone pointing out that you’re contributing to a harmful system then sorry not sorry. Your “feelings” on being called out or that stupid hippie “WE ARE ALL ONE PEOPLE” idea that’s clogging your brain is not more important than the fact that RACE. FUCKING. MATTERS.
I can’t stop being black. My race is important. Compared to white people, I am less likely to be employed and more likely to be raped because of my “unimportant” race.
I am also more likely to be a victim of a hate crime
more likely to be a general victim of crime, and more likely to be arrested than you are for the same crime as you due to my color. So yes, I am gonna fucking talk about it, and whether you choose to stay in that colorblind bullshit bubble of yours or not is up to you. But you’re still dead ass wrong.
Try telling the parents of those dead kids that “race doesn’t matter” and there is no oppression.
Oh, and one more thing?
You’re more likely to kill me.
