Stand In Solidarity With You? HA!

solidarity_fist__finger1

I am going to do a complete about face and I am going to stand in solidarity with the white motherfuckers who are now fucked up and ain’t hardly liking it. I am going to stand in solidarity with them because they stood in solidarity with me.

When I lost my job because I was the last person to get hired and when the economy tanked, I was the first person to get laid off. You white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You told the boss, “that ain’t hardly fair! She’s such a hard worker. If you fire her, you’ve got to fire me too. We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When my credit took a nosedive because I lost my job and couldn’t pay the rent and was homeless with my two kids, you white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You spoke up and said, “those goddamn credit reports are hurting those who have lost their jobs. It ain’t hardly right and we’re standing in solidarity to protest the foulness of that shit because shit happens to good people. We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When I had to get on public assistance because I couldn’t find a job and my kids were failing in school because shelter life ain’t easy, you white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You didn’t belittle me and call me a ‘freeloading, Cadillac driving welfare queen who couldn’t keep her legs closed.” You went to bat for me. You saw that I was just about broken and with your relentless reaching out on my behalf to city and state officials, I was able to pull myself up with the aid of the assistance that I had to take while trying to get back on my feet. You said, “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When the police brutally beat my teenage son, put him in a wheelchair simply because they could, you white motherfuckers stood in solidarity with me. You didn’t turn your back when you saw the beatings and heard of the outright murders that were perpetrated against other young Black men by racist ass cops. You stood in solidarity with me because you knew that shit was wrong. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you white motherfuckers saw that my nieces and nephews were not getting a decent education and the new catch phrase became, “the school to prison pipeline,” you weren’t okay with that. You loudly voiced your disgust at what was purposely being done to Black communities all across this country. You stood in solidarity with me because you know that shit just ain’t right. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you saw the incarceration statistics for young Black men caught up in the ‘for profit prison industrial complex’ over selling some dime bags of weed, you raised such a hue and cry, they let ‘em go. You stood in solidarity with me. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you saw the national unemployment rate inch down and yet the unemployment rate for Black people remained in the double digits, you decried the foulness of that shit. You said, “goddamn it! Crime is high in the Black neighborhoods because unemployment is so goddamn high! Something needs to be done!” You stood in solidarity with me. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

When you saw the abject poverty in Black communities all across this country, you…uh…never mind, you’re scared to come into the ‘hood’, but I am sure that you stood in solidarity with me. “We’re standing in solidarity together!”

Now, let’s fast forward to 2008 when the economy was collapsing and people were losing their homes and the Wall Street criminals were bailed out and then we began to hear about the ‘middle class’ getting fucked up. I went to pick up the phone because you had stood in solidarity with me throughout all of my troubling times but when I tried to find a number to call in the ‘solidarity group’ that had stood beside me, there were only blank pages!

When did you stand in solidarity with me? When did you ever give a goddamn about the problems that have plagued Black communities and just why the fuck are there so many ‘Black’ communities and not just ‘communities’ if we stand in solidarity together? Surely, you live right beside me because we’ve been in this all along, haven’t we? We stood together, side by side against those who have been oppressing my ass all along. Uh…no, we haven’t stood together in solidarity because my problems were never made your problems until now and now, I’m to stand in solidarity with you? Hell if that’s so!

We’ve had our ass handed to us and then some and now you want me to stand in solidarity with you because you’re just now starting to feel the impact of some shit that’s been finally let loose on YOUR ass? Ain’t gonna happen! Over a million of our Black men are in prison. We are segregated just as we’ve always been. We’re still suffering from the effects of disenfranchisement, rampant unemployment, extreme poverty, drug addiction, racism, bigotry and hate, but now, you want some solidarity? Ha! That IS funny! You left me to make it or not on my own and that is exactly where YOU stand. Make it or get broken by it because it don’t hardly matter to me what happens to you! You’ll get from me as much ‘solidarity’ as you gave me, nada! I’ve figured out what I need to do and now it’s YOUR turn! Figure it out!

    • Thank you HLJ! And I stand in solidarity with YOU, my brother!

      All of a sudden, I’m seeing “we ALL need to stand in solidarity together!, ’cause we’re ALL in this together against OUR oppressors.” Where was the goddamn call from the white motherfuckers to stand in solidarity with Black people when Black people have been getting fucked up and dealing with being oppressed eight ways to Sunday from way back when? There was no fucking call-to-arms and ‘solidarity standing’ over the plight of Black America in this here shithole. But let some goddamn shit fuck up the white motherfucker’s day and we’ve got to have some goddamn solidarity from every goddamn body all up in here now!! To hell with what’s been done to me and others who look like me, that shit ain’t hardly been a goddamn problem, but hell if it ain’t a goddamn problem now that it’s fucking up the white motherfuckers! Fuck THAT shit!

      Oh, yes, we’re ALL in this shit together and so we’re supposed to recognize and all join hands in fucking solidarity. Fuck those motherfuckers! I don’t hardly give a goddamn what they do to get through this shit storm that’s now fucking up their day. They didn’t hardly give a damn when it was just fucking up MY goddamn day! What motherfucking comes around goes around and I for one, am fucking glad that the shit has come home to roost all up their sorry ass! It ain’t motherfucking fun is it, motherfuckers? Well, just go stand in solidarity with some more fucked up white motherfuckers ’cause like I’ve already stated, the blue-eyed devils ain’t hardly finished with fucking you up! The goddamn writing is all up in your fucking mug and you can’t fucking escape from that shit now! Stand in solidarity with you? HA! You were deliberately blissfully ignorant to my plight and now one good turn deserves another, motherfuckers! I’m not blissfully ignorant of YOUR plight, but the thing is, I don’t give a damn!

      …and I sincerely thank you again for your comment HLJ! …and once again, I stand in solidarity with YOU, brother!

    • Now, Prince! You know the saying, “the truth shall set them free!” The truth ain’t got no business stingin’ ’em unless some of those filthy motherfuckers went and purchased a goddamn conscience and since a ‘conscience’ don’t come with complimentary brand new iPhone, and it don’t come with a big, gigantic, humongous complimentary HDTV, they ain’t gonna bother getting one.

      …and you know it’s true that Black folk was always held up as the ‘face’ of welfare even in the ‘face’ of statistical data to prove otherwise.

      …AND, when have they raised a goddamn hue and cry over the fact of rampant police brutality and mass incarceration of young Black men, not to forget that of those who have recently been exonerated and have been set free, the overwhelming majority have been Black men?

      Read this shit and weep!
      http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/apr/08/jonathan-fleming-cleared-brooklyn-killing-25-years

      “A man who spent almost a quarter-century behind bars for murder was freed Tuesday and cleared of a killing that happened when he was 1,100 miles away on a Disney World vacation.”

      That man had told those racist ass bastards that he was nowhere near the scene of the crime and his story could have easily been checked out, but hell no! Black people are guilty ANYWAY of just fucking being alive and we ain’t got to do a goddamn thing to get locked up besides be BLACK!!

      Hell naw, I ain’t standing in no goddamn solidarity with no fucking white motherfuckers! Ain’t gonna happen!

      …and unfortunately, there are many more innocent Black men still protesting their innocence after 10, 20 and 30+ years. Those white motherfuckers know what the fuck’s up, but it don’t hardly matter ’cause we don’t hardly matter. To hell with those white bastards. As far as I am concerned, the shit that’s gonna hit their motherfucking ass ain’t gonna get here fast enough to suit me!

      As always, I sincerely thank you for your comment!

  2. Prince, the ‘truth’ only hurts if someone has got some damn ‘feelings’ about who the ‘truth’ is about. Those filthy ass white motherfuckers ain’t got no ‘feelings’ for us. We’s(excuse my damn inner city misedumacasion, please!) only three-fifths human as claimed by them and so that exonerates them from doing anything about the injustices that are perpetrated every single day against our ‘not completely human ass’! Apparently, we’re somehow, missing two-fifths of our ass, all of us Black folk. Now, where it got to, I don’t hardly know, but according to them, we ain’t got it!

    So, in other words, the ‘truth’ can’t hurt when you don’t hardly care about the ‘truth’…and THAT is the truth!
