People telling African-Americans to get over centuries years of white-supremacy, and the colorblindness arguments, the rise in hate-crimes, and white-nationalist attacks on identity politics.

I believe it’s all related, that there's a strong correlation.
“This is what underpins the far-right's endless whataboutery and tendency to equate slavery in different contexts across different millenia. The goal is to empty the history of the transatlantic slave trade of its unique racial element and thus remove its legacy as a determinant"

By setting fire 🔥 to the past, they can remake reality to fit their lily-white objectives. And African Americans and Jews (due to our dissimilar histories) kind of stand in the way of that.
So, they have to encourage us to get over our histories, or fabricate history, or get rid of us.
Our lives are a living repudiation of their goals.
The fact that we escaped their murderous plots & plans for us must really infuriate them.
Haha we're still here bitches....😍😍😍😍
