I grow tired of people using black people like a political football, throwing us from one cause to another to manufacture outrage for policy change & to appear virtuous. You people are our villains pretending to be our saviors. *thread*
Since the verdict of Kyle Rittenhouse, there has been an abundance of people, especially white leftists, who feel the need to invoke black people because they don't like the way things turned out. If you are this person, fuck you.
I normally don't speak this harshly but you people always grab microphones to speak for black people as if you are our saviors. You believe you're these virtuous heavenly soldiers here to save us weak black people, when you're the exact devil we don't need.
You are our villains. Let me say this again, you are our fucking villains. You are the type of people who record themselves giving homeless people $20 so you can try to trick people into believing you're a good person. God knows what you really are. He can't be swindled.
Every time you people stand up for "black people", you're not helping. You constantly interfere by manufacturing narratives that are unproductive for many black people and you constantly group us together like we are monolithic beings.
The fact that you think you NEED to carry signs and wear T-Shirts letting us know that you think our lives matter is the problem. You're not convincing anyone else but yourselves.
You people are selfish, manipulative elitists and every time you attempt to use black people as a manipulative tool to get something you want politically, I will be sure to call you out.
We do not need saving, you do. We do not need your help but you sure as hell need some help. Quit transferring your insecurities onto a group of people. And quit using black people for your political motives & your Twitter clap backs because it only displays your low character.

I once had a friend, a white liberal female, who used to joke with me about woke people, post riots, suddenly sounds just like them. As we were arguing she said "Well, I listen to black voices" and I said "I'm black, does my voice matter?"
We used to have conversations about what it means to be black from a philosophical standpoint. Then suddenly, there is only one black thought. My voice was no longer acceptable. Matter of fact, I was now tainted as a friend.
This is a person that I would spend holidays with her family, hang out routinely and have long conversations with. Suddenly, my voice no longer matters as a black man because it's been overshadowed by ideologues who only see one proper way of being black.

I wanted to start a Jeff Foxworthy style thread called "you might be woke". I'll start.

"If you think burning down black businesses helps black people...you might be woke."

Your turn!
If your college professor asks you what grade you would like...you might be woke...
If you were breast fed by your dad...you might be woke...

Funny Honeymoon Story Thread: We decided to go to Turkey for a mixture of city exploring in Istanbul and beach life in Antalya.

After walking a lot in Istanbul and being sore, I figured I would throw out the idea of getting a massage while in Antalya...
We found a place nearby with good reviews. Went by early and made an appointment and clearly stated we just wanted a massage. We showed up a few hours later and they were ready for us. We changed and now wearing just a towel. There is a clear language barrier fyi...
They tell us to go into the sauna for a few. Then a man comes in with just a towel on and asks us questions in broken English. "Scrub?" We look at each other and say "massage". He says it's not extra, part of the cost we agreed upon. So we're like okay...
