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!
And now, we come to the latest victim of a police involved shooting, Justine Damond, who we all know was murdered by a cop who was spooked by a trash can lid hitting the ground or was he spooked by the sound of someone dropping a plate or by someone breaking wind or belching or sneezing, coughing or playing bongo drums in an upscale area of South Minneapolis?
All of a sudden, some white people are calling out Black Lives Matter and the NAACP for not coming to protest for Justine Damond. First of all, Black Lives Matter has been front and center in Minneapolis since this event went down and the NAACP has, as well. It is my opinion that neither group should stand up in protest over this police involved shooting because many whites have tried to get Black Lives Matter defined as a ‘hate group’. Apparently, stating that Black lives should matter is projecting hate towards others. Never mind the fact that the majority of police killings have directly impacted Black people for hundreds of years starting with the slave patrols. And if white America had ever stood up, en masse with us, would we still continue to see this play out in every city in every state in America in the year 2017? We know the answer to that!
Don’t sit on your pink ass now and point the finger at Black people and tell us that we should be standing in solidarity with you because of one incident that has happened to the likes of you. I feel nothing for your plight! Not a drop of sympathy do I have and there will be none. A gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of sympathy that I can drum up for you pink-assed motherfuckers. BULEEEDAT! So come on up in here and tell me that we are all in this shit together and like I always say, “I will be more than happy to mop the cyber floor with your pink ass!”
Black people have been saying for decades that police brutality is rampant; running unchecked in this hellhole and is even encouraged and we were paid no mind by the likes of you pink-assed motherfuckers who basically told us to “Fuck off!” And so now, I am telling you to do the same! “Fuck off!” Your ‘plight’ don’t hardly concern me. And you hypocritical shits have the nerve to now parade around with signs stating, “White People: Are You Awake Now?” Yeah!, You’re awake now, but only because Miss Upscale Neighborhood ‘pink-assed’ Goldilocks got herself shot to death by some Somali-American cop who was startled by her farting or belching near them. But so many Black men, women and children have been murdered by cops and you’ve not called for the heads of police departments on a platter, but now that Miss Australian Goldilocks has been murdered by cop, it is now time to fire the Minneapolis police chief, bring in a Black cop, who by the way, has experienced racism in the very department that he will now oversee, to the point whereas he had to file a lawsuit and received compensation. So that right there tells us just how far he will be allowed to go in attempting to reign in trigger happy cops or cops who are ‘spooked’ into killing people because of loud noises nearby. Seriously?!!!
We must all get out the purple crepe and black armbands and violins and take to the streets to protest over an ‘upper class immigrant from Australia getting herself murdered by those thugs in blue uniforms? Yeah! Right! Wait for me to don my marching shoes and dust off my lame ass, fifty year-old protest sign and git ta stepping and you will find yourselves turning just as blue as a cop’s uniform. Yeah! I’m going to git ta marching and shouting, “No justice! No peace!” for this here ‘white’ woman who chose to come on over here to America and live the good life until she got what millions of Black people have been getting for hundreds of years in AmeriKKKa! I am not even marching for Black people anymore and I’m damn sure as hell not marching for Miss Goldilocks. She’s got the Australian government fighting for justice for her. She’s got her Australian family to fight for justice for her and she’s got all the upper crust white folks in an uproar storming City Hall fighting for justice for her. But where were they at when Jamar Clark was shot dead by cops? Where were they when Philando Castile was shot dead by cop? They were certainly not storming the mayor’s office demanding that she resign just as she demanded the resignation of her police chief and received it, post haste.
You pink-assed motherfuckers will never understand that what comes around, goes around. It’s now come around to you. Deal with it or not! I don’t hardly fucking care! But you will not blame us or demand that we Black folks stand in solidarity with you simply because we have been protesting this very same shit for hundreds of years, ON OUR OWN, while you hypocrites simply sat back and watched it all go down knowing all the while that this vile shit was put in to play by those who are your own kin folks. Fuck you AND yours!
