Let me A WHITE FEMALE just say something. Not every white person is racist and thinks that those white cops did nothing wrong by killing all those black guys. And another thing would it be ok if it were the other way around?Black cops killing the white guys? How about did you…
Oh goodness. I saw it coming. You have just proven your privilege caresses your soul very well; you feel your hurt feelings (being a part of the blamed white people) compares to the murder of an unarmed Black teenager. Obviously, not everyone is a certain way, in this case racist. However, since you felt the need to speak out on this matter, you must feel some sort of guilt as if it was your responsibility as a white person, or you just seriously have your soul caressed THAT MUCH.
To add and directly say it, yes, you are right, not every white person is racist, just like not every Black teen, hell, Black person is up to no fucking good. At least those cops can go home and change out of their uniform, shedding their mark of momentary hatred, and come outside and appear as an individual, I suppose, like you, free racial bias, all the while sucking up the privilege white folks get in this nation. But do you think Michael Brown, Kendrick Johnson, Jordan Russell Davis, Trayvon Martin, my Sisters and Brothers, I, can just go home and shed this beautiful and horribly envied skin we have, and sadly for four brothers mentioned above, had? Regardless of how Michael was acting he was unarmed. No shot needed to be fired. Even if it needed to be fired, which I can’t see being the case, why shoot to kill, especially if there was no weapon? They are trained to disarm. What do you mean, Ms. White Female? If Black cops were killing white boys it would be a government shutdown. When a Black man does something positive he is a bad guy; so, when it is BELIEVED that we have done something wrong, hell we are the Devil’s vessel.
So, miss my Black people and me with that “my feelings are hurt” shit because you are afraid of becoming the “bad guy”, like that never was the case, anyway. Don’t forget how you got this land, how it became prosperous, and how you got your privilege.
“You took my son away from me,” she told the television news station KMOV. “Do you know how hard it was for me to get him to stay in school and graduate? You know how many black men graduate? Not many. Because you bring them down to this type of level, where they feel like they don’t got nothing to live for anyway. ‘They’re going to try to take me out anyway.’”—
“The Buddhists say if you meet somebody and your heart pounds, your hands shake, your knees go weak, that’s not the one. When you meet your ‘soul mate’ you’ll feel calm. No anxiety, no agitation”—Monica Drake- Clown Girl (via yeezy2016)
