Writer of intelligent Black thoughts. I'm pro-Black and antiracist. Unvarnished truths on racism and White people are spoken here. White Fragility = 🚫

Racist White folks are pulling out all the tops over the next two years to woo reliably racist, scary White folks to get back in line with White Supremacy so they can remain in power.

They are stealing our language and twisting the meaning of our words (AAVE).

Using politics.
Incorporating media, even social media to sow anti-Blackness and misinformation.

Whites have a code, and they are strategically aligning with People of Color to engage in anti-Black warfare.

There is a economic war happening as well. Not helping Black people is the goal.
Our own government cannot and will not say our group's name alone. It won't create policy and legislation for us. It won't create specific hate crime legislation for Black people. We have no specific Black economic initiatives.

We have to share with everyone.

My heart has really been aching for DMX. I usually don't twisted about celebs,

but DMX was different. He was a foster kid, neglected, abused, forgotten, literally left for the wolves. I can relate to his early beginnings because our lives were similar.
The fact we've made it this far is a miracle. I root for all foster kids and kids of the system to make it the same way I root for all Black people to make it because it's hard.

When people and systems neglect you, forget you, and ignore you, it's hard to get right.

It's hard.
I didn't have drug issues. I was tough mentally when I was a kid. I had something inside of me that protected me from a lot of bad things, but I got into a lot of bad shit too when I was young.

My mom was a combo of evil and crazy. She also kept me a way from my dad.

Black people really need to get real about America and what it is.

Nobody is hiding anything anymore.

Nobody = White people and non-Black POC in power.

If you can't see it's because you don't want to see. It's the same blindness and love for White optimism that's killing us.
All you need to do is open any history book on what happened after the Emancipation Proclamation to the Reconstruction Era through Jim Crow.

Every time we make tiny steps, White America puts you back in our place or lets us stay stuck in a place so long it gives racists time.
to plan their next moves.

Just like White folks retaliated when Obama won office, they're going to retaliate because folks outvoted them in 2020, and Americans put another Black/Biracial person w/proximity to Whiteness again, we are going to pay.

Black folks are going to pay.

Please stop excusing POC anti-Blackness and racism!

If POC who are able to exist in America as White, enjoy White benefits from their proximity to Whiteness and engage in oppressing and ignoring other groups, they deserve to be called out.

POC engage in White Supremacy too.
There are a lot of rifts, wedges, and discrimination between other ethnic groups and Black people because White people have taught immigrants to hate/oppress Blacks.

We're tired of being everybody's punching bag. We're tired of being exploited. We're tired of being silenced.
America has a lot of issues with racism, but let's stop pretending as if White people are the only ones who are problematic, exploitative, and oppressive.

And stop acting like Black people are not supposed to react to racism.

Just like we know our Whites, we know Otherness too.

Please stop comparing last Wednesday's insurrection to Hitler's attempted coup.

Doing so minimizes White America's history of terrorizing Black people via state and local insurrections, and ignores the victimization of African American descendants of those insurrections.
Before the Holocaust, there was the Wilmington, NC insurrection in during the Reconstruction Era in 1898.

The Holocaust happened in Germany between 1933-45.

Hitler learned how to kill Jews from White people in America via Jim Crow/racial discrimination.

Please don't follow up White people looking for a way to deflect from how terrible White people in America have been to Black people, minorities.

When White people say the FBI only monitors international terrorism, but not domestic terrorism, it's a LIE.

The FBI/DOJ/CIA has always monitored Black and Brown folks, just not White people.

As soon as Mr. Magoo (Jeff Sessions) became the Attorney General) the first thing he did was make Black Lives Matter an "Identity Extremist Group," a new excuse to keep watching Black people fighting their oppression, racism, and police violence.

Homeland Security produced a report in coordination with the FBI detailing 24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacks across the U.S. since 2010.

President Obama warned White people in 2010 and 2015. They did nothing.

Black people in America have NEVER had due process when it comes to White mobs.

White mobs began in the 1870s and we're still dealing with White mobs today in 2021.

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

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.

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

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.
