Miss me with the argument that Notre Dame was more important than blakc churches burning because of the history/age of the church. Black American churches will NEVER have a chance to be as old Notre Dame Bc racists keep burning them down.

You should be mourning that fact.
Even churches that stay have lost their historical significance Bc of gentrification. The building might stand, but the community is gone.

Imagine the freedom of building a church and knowing it will be a landmark for 500 years.

We can’t even guarantee a corner store for 20.
It’s just insult to injury that ppl are justifying tears over Notre Dame Bc of the age of the building while denying us the ability the chance to create our own works of art.

Maybe if our culture was as respected, we’d have something long lasting, too
being blakc in America is constantly starting over. White ppl get mad, they burn down your church. Your town. White ppl want your community? They gentrify.

We are literally starting over as a people every 25-100 years.
Now we’re told our buildings aren’t old enough.
Our shit isn’t old because it’s not respected. It’s seen as something to be taken over, demolished, or revamped based on whims of white People.

What a catch-22. Only old cultures landmarks matter, but y’all refuse to allow us to have old cultural landmarks.
So do we matter?
