~ Forgiveness and Accountability are not mutually exclusive
~ Mama #BothamJean ain't told nobody to do what she's chosen to do
~ FORGIVENESS IS NOT ABSOLUTION
Yall HAVE GOT to get to a place where you can hold more complex thought. Jesus! 3/3
#FORGIVENESS and JUSTICE are not mutually exclusive.
It's WHITE SUPREMACY that tells you they are.
#Forgiveness should NEVER be abt proving your humanity to White ppl and that is absolutely what White ppl since the beginning of their raping & pillaging on this soil have and do make it out to be. If you gon do it, do it for you.
Is you free or ain't you? Forgive 'cause that's what YOU want or need to do. Screw everybody else & these bizarre inverted rationales
On the contrary, it's that person saying, "You ARE NOT WORTHY of my mental and emotional state, and I will not allow you to control it with your actions."
Which never means one cant work to stop their harm
And that's okay.
To suggest and assume this Black family chooses #forgiveness for White absolution and not solely themselves strips them of autonomy & yet again, centers Whiteness
Thereby, what? Conscribing us all to never be able to deliver relief TO OURSELVES from the torments forcibly imposed on us by another's savagery.
It's okay to be fully human.
It's okay if you struggle w it all and do the best you can. It really is okay.
God help us all.
