You know, I dont blame the Officer Wilson’s, the George Zimmerman’s. They are more or less “just following orders” in a society that still treats people of color as disposable, s undesirable. Michael Brown, Trayvon Martin, lay cold in Ferguson and Sanford, and enough dead black men besides to stretch from Florida to Missouri.
Every time a Islamic terrorist does something horrible, many of the Jews and Christians jump up and say that the Muslim leaders should publicly denounce the thugs, and usually most of them do, though as often as not, some of those complaining will say “They dont mean it.” When black folks riot because of some horrible injustice, white folks jump up and say, “You black leaders need to condemn this!” and usually most of them do. on and on it goes, when some member of the non male white Christian does almost anything, folks want that group to denounce him or her… well, I say its time for us white folk, especially us white males, and especially white male Christians to stand up and denounce people who support cops who kill unarmed people, white people who judge folks by their skin color, folks who wont hire a black man, and don’t want one for a neighbor and are happy with the status quo of redlining, of colored glass ceilings of all the immoral crap that is white privilege!
You, my fellow white middle class people who think nobody has ever done anything for you, except if you stopped you know, you got jobs never offered to an equally qualified person of color, you know you were never harassed for driving down the street white, or arrested for shopping while white, you never got beat up or shot by a cop of a nutty neighborhood “watchman” because you looked suspiciously pale.
STAND UP!!! DENOUNCE THE INJUSTICE!!!
ADMIT IT, YOU, YES, YOU, ARE NOT ONLY PART OF THE PROBLEM…
YOU ARE ALLLLLLLLL OF THE PROBLEM!!!!!
WE ARE, ME AND YOU AND EVERY OTHER WHITE PERSON.
We look at ourselves and say, well, Im not rich, I didn’t get into Harvard because my daddy went there, but in a million little ways every day, you, white person, (and me), while NEVER asking for a favor, always took it as a kindness and never thought about it as a favor.
WE ARE THE BLIGHT.
Lets do something, lets stand for justice. and not the “special justice” for white people.
OWN IT, PEOPLE!
