I've got two new terms to add to my growing hashtag glossary.

#Halftivist &

#Halftruist 🤣
#Halftivist = half ass activist

#Halftruist = half ass altruist

Basically, whenever people are talking about systems that require dismantling and who needs to give up privileges or do the bulk of the work, black women descendants need to be like:

"After you."
Black women need to keep one eye open, ALWAYS.

* Stop racing to the frontlines when it's not your fight.

* Pay attention to what people champion versus how they *actually live* & prepare their own children (see #LiberalThinkingConservativeLiving)

* Understand that we ONLY make up 5% of US population

#Halftivist
#Halftruist
5% of the population CAN NOT & WILL NOT bring about any drastic changes.

Yes, the work of our thinkers offering assessments & solutions to the problems are available for EVERYONE ELSE who make up a larger share of the majority to reference & act upon.

But you can sit your black ass down and stop doing ALL the heavy lifting, which does nothing but stresses and prematurely ages you, weathering your DNA in the process.

If our suffering could bring about a "revolution" it would have happened already.

We couldn't stop Tr*mp, because the other 90% didn't want to.

PLAIN and simple.

They didn't recruit their relatives, etc.

THEY didn't do enough.

The overwhelming majority of people who look like us, did.

We have no control over this.

The ball is in their court.
Immediately after the election, nearly 2 yrs ago, I had to see a specialist for what could've been a stomach ulcer.

May have been from food poisoning.

Or, it could've been stress over the election results.

I assumed the latter.

Guess what? I stopped caring.
No issue since.
The doctor gave me a round of antibiotics. And I took them.

But I also took my state of mind seriously too.

I stopped actually giving a real F.

I said, if it's meant to fall apart, so be it.

Like violins playing while the Titanic sunk.💅

If things get even crazier?

You need to preserve your energy for that.

That's my motto for America

I'm going to take care of myself right now.

And I think it's unethical not to give ACTUAL black activists, scholars & thinkers a break. They die early.

When you see them, you should always ask

"Are you okay?"

"Have you taken a break?"

Do you know that Thurgood Marshall almost died long before Brown vs. Education, from STRESS?

His doctor actually prescribed him a vacation to an island.

No. I'm not lying.
Do you know that Whitney Young died from a heart attack at the age of 49, likely due to the stress of his activism?

We now know that shorter telomeres can be measured in black people. They impact the fitness of our bodies to ward off diseases.

A lot of our stress is in vain.
Our stress does not speed up anything, it only hinders productivity and takes us from this world too soon.

Anyway. I'll stop here.

I just wanted to introduce those terms.

Stop being all in ALL the time.
It's not healthy.

#Halftruist
#Halftivist
And for the last time?

I will remind you.

Beyond the illusion....

The fight is really between *white people* determining what kind of humans THEY want to be.

They've already "conquered" us.

We're outnumbered and outgunned on *this land*.

Show me the lie.
