Black people,

If you haven't been planning for chaos all this year, you're behind the power curve.

If we've learned anything in 2020, it's that state and federal governments will leave and forsake you, and they lie.

You need to be prepared for chaos beginning January 2021

1/
2/ I realize times are tough, but understand when things go down, nobody is coming. We're all gonna be in the same predicament. On our own.

You should be getting your houses ready. Here are some tips that can help you prepare for 2021 emergencies.
3/ Prepare like you live in a hurricane zone, and prep for your geographical area's weather patterns. I live in FL so I can be outside in Jan. Northern fam may not have that luxury. Be prepared to survive a few days/weeks solo.

Hurricane prep guide:

weather.gov/wrn/hurricane-…
4/ Here is a FEMA prep guide as well. Get your stuff together early so you can put your hands on it when you need it. Have a plan for multiple scenarios.

FEMA prep guide and checklist:
fema.gov/pdf/areyouread…
5/ Food. It's gonna be hard to get stuff when shit hits the fan (White folks w/$$ will horde shit like they always do). If you are on a fixed income or if you can only purchase a few things at a time on pay day, start NOW.

Here is a food supply checkist: ready.gov/food
6/ Don't forget to get enough food, hygiene products, water, and supplies for everyone in your home.

You may also want to have alternative methods to prep food. If there is no power, you can't cook. If you can't access gas, there is no propane for a gas grill (maybe).
7/ No power also means you can use debit/credit cards to buy emergency items. Keep some cash handy.

I purchased a cast iron starter cookset that I can use on my grill. I used it this summer when we lost power to cook my frozen stuff first. 👍🏽👍🏽

8/ Kids: We often forget about children when we're in crisis. Plan for children. If you can, help older caretakers caring for grandkids prep too. In times of crisis, we must support family.

A disaster preparedness checklist for families with children : rcrctoolbox.org/toolbox/disast…
9/ Everyone thinks prepping is ridiculous until it's too late.

Some stores are already rationing items now. A pandemic AND an election/constitutional crisis is something we're not equipped to handle.

We are a failed state. America can't and won't save us, especially not BP.
10/ Compromised racist have sold us to the highest bidders. They have access to ALL THE KEYS to the government. They won't tell us how bad things are because it's embarrassing.

Racism was this nation's original sin and will be this nation's downfall.
11/ It's not IF a national emergency happens, it's WHEN.

It's gonna get worse before it gets better. Prep your homes. Prepare your families. Don't be caught off guard.

We all have limited resources, and those resources helping you today may not be able to help you tomorrow.
12/ Ain't no help coming. WE are all we got.

Surviving 2020 was a crash course for surviving 2021. Be ready, and get ready while you can.

Get your CWPs!

While toilet paper and paper towels are important, they are the least of your worries. Plan to survive.
13/ Make White folks mad and survive 🤣😂😂, because they are damned sure trying to kill us.

Be well, stay safe love y'all.

Please add to the list to help others prep. And remember, do no harm.

If you can't help us, please don't hurt us. ✌🏾

The End
Forgot one more thing, meds.

If you don't do anything but buy bandaids, pain relievers, cold and flu meds, antacids, rubs, alcohol and other things from the Dollar Tree, get it.

Also, buy quality vitamins and cold/flu meds in case you become ill and can't go to the hospital.

I have been listening to Biden's recording with Civil Rights leaders and his tone and bs was a trip I wasn't ready for.

The disrespect was absolutely unacceptable. No self-respecting African-American should be allowing old White dudes to talk to them this way. (THREAD)
The other thing that irritated me was his demand that we work with White Hispanics. We GOTTA do it.

Nobody is else is told they have to work with other racial groups except African-Americans. No other racial groups are ridin for us!

I'll show you. 2/
The NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) advocates for all people of colors. It was founded by Blacks, but looked out for all the Brown immigrants that came here AFTER us.

Black folks fought for and protected the rights of all non-White people.

I don't know who needs to hear this (wypipo), but this is classic casual racism practiced by White people who refuse to listen to the concerns of Black people.

Y'all haven't earned our trust, that's why we don't trust you.
What Dr. Fauci said may indeed be correct (they've lied and flip-flopped so much, stood by in silence to let liars, protecting their personal interests), but using the race of the Black doctor to try and convince AA the government and medicine is safe is SO casually racist. I...
The reason many Black people don't trust the vaccines or the government is because America has NEVER made right what its done wrong to us African Americans as a group collectively.

And when they do apologize it's decades, sometimes centuries AFTER the harm has been done.

Good morning to all the hardworking Black people whose momma taught them to work twice as hard, yet they can't attain what they've EARNED because White women and men like Amy Comey Barrett are GIVEN positions/power just BECAUSE THEY ARE WHITE and will sustain White

(Thread)
Supremacy. We all have worked with a White person and wondered how they got that position. Trumps, Mitch McConnells, Lisa Murkowskis, Lindsey Grahams help them.

The GOP just gave us a Master Class in gatekeepers of White Supremacy.

Never forget it. Be thankful for it.
Save this blip in time for your Black children and grandchildren. Teach them how White America works.

This happens in America everyday, with any employer, in any human resource office where White people get to make decisions on our employment ops and our upward mobility.

As a Black mother, I have spent my entire life softening the blows of racism for my sons. My job never ends.

I taught them how to navigate racism in school from teachers. Then the police and public. Then stores and businesses. Then college. Then the workplace. Then in cities.
I was forced to teach them code stitching and assimilating, because America won't allow us to just be. Softening blows.

My sons learned early in life their Black was bad in White America. Softening blows.
Now as a Black mother, I'm softening blows dealt by America for my sons.

I'm teaching them they'll never measure up thanks to racism and that allies often let us down, because they get tired, check out and they're often fragile.

That there is no justice, it's just us. Blows.
