I see all of those protestors out there fighting for a redo of America, teaching about CRT, wanting reparations, dismantling the hierarchy, etc, etc.
Seems to me that Black people are angry about the wrong things. They are angry about racism so they want to teach more racism. They are angry about statues honoring racists and schools named after them, but the real racists are the ones in power now that you think has your back. Those old schools and statues are past history, and your leaders want you focused on the past, not on the present.
Who benefits if education standards are eliminated? Your children, that’s who. They call math racist, but if your kids don’t know math, that makes them ignorant, just the way they want it, it seems, like it was back in the slavery days so slaves didn’t know the difference between a dollar or five, nor could they read a map so they couldn’t escape. If the government makes it so you can’t figure out what they do, it’s intentional.
What happens when your kid can’t read any old books because the school said they wanted to protect your kid from racism from white education? When older will they lack certain knowledge that could aid them?
When they hand out those stimmy checks to keep you at home in poverty, who benefits? They do, because you are under their control, not causing any problems, not advancing in society, just the way they like it. This is how they treat the mentally ill. Just enough to keep them happy.
And when they say ‘defund police,’ who gets to deal with the crime because police are not allowed to do anything? You do, that’s who.
If you live south of 17th Street and Western in LA, or in Chicago on the Southwest side, you are out of luck if you call the police. Ain’t nobody getting arrested, and you know it.
When all of that cartel cocaine and drug money hits the street, whose children are they recruiting to sell it or buy it? Yours, you fool!
You think your life will be better because they are letting your brothers and sisters steal shit up in Portland and Seattle, now LA and DC, too? The stores will leave empty, only to become demolished or left to disintegrate, just like the rest of your neighborhood.
Your life won’t get better no matter how much you protest, because in the end the same people will still be in office crying about how bad it is for you back at home while doing nothing but being rewarded for their power. People like Kamala Harris, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson-Lee, they are millionaires and they laugh about it while you aren’t focused on them. When Harris was California’s DA, she was quite busy putting Black people in jail. She even tried to kill one when she knew the guy was innocent (thank you Tulsi Gabbard for remind us!)
Once again the people who said they were going to help you are not helping you, they are helping everyone else but you by allowing people who shouldn’t be in America to take jobs and housing so it becomes even more crowded in your school, your local store, your local clinic and in your neighborhood.
Oh, and the media you also think has your back? people like Joy Reid, Don Lemon and and Donna Brazil? Think again, these people spew racial hatred in your defense, then take home big fat checks from white CEO’s who benefit from the ratings stirring up rallies and giving promotion to BLM organizers, who themselves enjoy their own behind-the-scenes funding and also live in homes you and I will never own.
You see it. You know it. But what you don’t see are the fat cat politicians who are only too happy to have your vote because they have convinced you they were going to fight against systemic racism.
The only problem is they are and have always been the system.
