We Black. We Mad. We Won’t Shut up.

DISCLAIMER: THIS POST IS ABOUT RACIST AND THOSE WHO WANT TO TRIVIALIZE THE FEELINGS OF AFRICAN AMERICANS IN THIS COUNTRY. IT IS NOT ABOUT AN ENTIRE RACE! I REPEAT THIS IS NOT ABOUT AN ENTIRE RACE! IF THE SHOE DOESN’T FIT…MOVE ON. I DON’T NEED YOUR DISSERTATION OF HOW THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO YOU, BUT IF THE SHOE FITS – LACE IT UP AND WALK IT OUT! JUST DON’T COME FOR ME, YOU WON’T CHANGE HOW I FEEL. YOU MAD? TAKE IT UP WITH YOUR ANCESTORS. (Republished, originally posted on my Facebook in Feb 2016)

You can counter attack all they want with the tit for tat bull-crap,
talking about the Black Panthers are a terrorist organization equivalent to the
KKK and it’s just as offensive as the confederate flag. PUH-LEAZE.

Listen…

UNTIL your kids are executed in the streets and murdered in jails while
their killers walk free,

UNTIL your culture is consistently equated with being “ghetto”, “dumb”,
“poor” and “worthless”, except when non-black people [poorly and incorrectly]
imitate it.

UNTIL you have to explain to your children how the color of their skin
somehow makes them a target.

UNTIL your heart races ninety miles an hour when you see a police
officer (even though you’ve done nothing wrong) because you understand that being
polite and cooperating with the officer doesn’t guarantee your safety.

UNTIL your son is walking home after picking up skittles and tea from
the corner store, or playing alone in the park with a fake gun, or sitting in a
car listening to music with his friends and he is shot down like a wild animal.

UNTIL certain races think so little of your race that they shoot first
and launch a smear campaign to cover their asses after the fact.

UNTIL a jury of your “peers” consistently fails to convict violent
thugs who murder your people, even when the murder/assault/violation is
recorded for the world to see!

UNTIL your government, that should protect you, passes laws to harm you
and assassinates those who rise up to fight against the injustice you face.

UNTIL you’ve watched as individuals set up funds that take in thousands
of dollars in donations as a show of “support” for the men who are killing your
brothers, fathers, sisters, mothers, sons and daughters.

UNTIL you have seen a young man, not of your race, walk into a church
and viciously murder nine people who welcomed him in love because of the color
of their skin; then [to add insult to ignorance] to hear how the police treated
him ever so gently when captured…

…meanwhile they’re choking unarmed black men in the street for being a
“threat”.

UNTIL so much as a heavy sigh equates resisting arrest because your
skin color automatically deems anything you do or say as “aggressive” …

…never mind their unwarranted
aggression towards you.

UNTIL male officers manhandle your women and girls, slamming them face
first into the ground like they’re violent criminals because they dared speak
up for themselves in the face of injustice.

UNTIL your women are labeled the “least attractive”/ “least desirable”
group of women in the world and it’s published around the world for everyone to
see…

… including your young impressionable sons and daughters.

UNTIL you endure four-hundred plus terrorizing years of brutal slavery
and had your families ripped apart and sold at-will.

UNTIL your women and little girls are raped by “massa” whenever he
pleased, however he pleased, sometimes in front of their husbands, brothers,
fathers, sons…

…and they dare not stand up for you lest they lose their life.

UNTIL your people have been bought and sold as PROPERTY.

UNTIL your ancestors are beaten UNTIL their flesh splits.

UNTIL you don’t know your full history because so much of it was lost,
stolen and re-written to remove or shed your people in a bad light.

UNTIL you are forced to grow up in a country that tells you everything
about you is crap while expecting you to be grateful for the horrendous
treatment you still endure.

UNTIL you can go back and tell your ancestors to eradicate the hate and
ego that allowed them to believe themselves superior and operate in a system of
slavery and hate while parading around as a “Christian nation”.

UNTIL your history reads like something out of a horror book.

UNTIL you know what it’s like to be valued less than a dog in a country
YOUR ANCESTORS built yet YOUR ENSLAVERS take all the credit, claim, power and
fame…then tell you “your people are lazy, that’s why you have nothing!”

UNTIL your ancestors have been hung from trees like ornaments as black
men, women and children posed and smiled in the background as if it were just
another day in the neighborhood (because to them, it WAS).

UNTIL systems of racism have been set up to keep you and generations of
your family in bondage, poverty, self-hate and cycles of despair.

UNTIL all of the above happens REGULARLY over several generations and
not in isolated incidents here and there.

Please do us a favor and MISS US WITH YOUR B.S.!!! This is NOT about
you! It’s NOT!

Just like you’re not here for our plight, we’re not here for your
privileged first world tears and tired laments about how life hasn’t been a
cakewalk for you and we (black people) should just “get over it”.

Your life may not have been a cakewalk but you [thankfully] didn’t have
the added struggle of being black and considered worthless in AmeriKKKa!

Multiply your struggle times ten and you might scratch the surface of
what it’s like to be Black a Country that hates us and does everything in its
power to hold us down while spinning it to seem like WE’RE the ones with the
problem.

You’re trying to detract from the real issue, the racist attitudes and
actions that created this atmosphere in the first place!

You are masters of the double standard with your separate but “equal”
back in the day. We were never equal, never have been [in your eyes], and as
long as you have hate in your heart and/or trivialize our pain, we will NEVER
be equal [in your eyes].

You call US “thugs”? What are your ancestors? Savages?

They were the original gangsters, thugs and destroyers. They came to
steal, kill and destroy! They started this!

We didn’t invade your lands, kidnap your people to a foreign nation and
force generations of your people to be slaves…your ancestors did that! They
slaughtered us just as they slaughtered the Indians

…BUT WE’RE THE THUGS? LAUGHABLE. YOU ARE THE REASON ORGANIZATIONS LIKE
BLACK PANTHERS EXISTED! WE HAD TO PROTECT OUR OWN BECAUSE YOU SURELY WEREN’T
GOING TO DO IT!

Some of you act like we should be thankful, but I WISH I WOULD THANK
MASSA! Your privilege (and that damn Donald Trump) has certainly gone to your
heads.

I’ll leave you with this: You can ignore the s**t in the room all you
want, it’s still going to stank; and UNTIL you properly clean it up, you’re going
to smell it. This isn’t the 1800’s, early 1900’s or even the 1960’s! We will NOT go
quietly and cowardly into the night because you’re uncomfortable with our truth. What did you expect? Did you think we’d just forget and move on? You
don’t even understand the damage done to our families. We are STILL overcoming
slavery [mental strongholds] and some of you want to act like it was just a
schoolyard fight.

It wasn’t, and we’re not going to act like it isn’t what it is just so you
don’t have to deal with it. We endured your hate, now endure our response.
