“First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.” I always say; First, they came for Black people, and the world said, “Who cares?”
More from the blog.
This world has NEVER listened to Black people even while we are screaming! Black people REPEATEDLY tried to tell you BEFORE this RACIST was in office. But noooo you didn’t want to listen to us, a people that have COLLECTIVELY ALWAYS gotten it right. Black people are the moral compass of the world! If Black people are WARNING YOU, LISTEN!!!
This racist fool gets into office, and y’all want to knit pink hats, and make cute signs with Instagrammbale slogans and take pictures and selfies and share hashtags and show that you are part of the resistance and it is so cute to be a part of something. You have your Black friend that knows all the latest slang, and you weave words like yassssss, intersectionality, inclusion and diversity in between ordering your avocado toast on multigrain bread with your almond milk latte. You really think you are doing something. You aren’t. You have effectively PLAYED THE PART of someone that gives a damn about justice because it is TRENDY to be “down with the Blacks and Browns and Resistance.” And you have done NOTHING outside of creating an illusion of giving a damn, and those in power know that you are more committed to tweeting the illusion than truly doing ANYTHING about dismantling systems that ultimately benefit you.
I strongly encourage you to head on over to the original blog. Nothing that I could say would do it justice. Believe me, you will understand after you have read the blog in its entirety. I only wish that I had written this but as my readers know, I am so enraged, I am suffering from a prolonged apoplectic fit and can do nothing more than foam at the mouth over this vile shit that’s hitting me in the face, daily.
I had to take a little break because I am so damn tired of the shenanigans of whites. Two parties of whites; the Democrats and the Republicans pretending to fight over who is more powerful when both are ruining ALL of our lives since it is patently obvious that neither party could give a damn about any of us. When I hear any Democrat or Republican deign to suggest they speak for me by saying, “The American people want this and the American people that,” I just want to scream because we don’t count for shit! We never have and we never will. And no, I am NOT voting because I am tired of the pretense that my vote counts for shit! The House Democrats knew that the Republican controlled Senate would not get Trump out of the Oval Office and can you just imagine how much money was spent on that dog and pony show called an “impeachment?” Too damn much!
What we need is not more typed words, what we need is not more re-blogging. What we need is not more truths in our face. What we need are not more hashtags. What we need are not more Facebook posts about politicians. What we need are not more Youtube videos talking about what we need. What we need is action and since that is never going to happen, this is what we get; a world that is getting ever more difficult to live in, run by some things that should not even exist, but they do. And we just tell each other over and over, the same damn thing and nothing is done. I don’t want to hear no shit about the “pen being mightier than the sword.” In this day and age, that is meaningless because the pen produces mere words that call for action from a planet filled with brain dead zombies that just shuffle along, aimlessly searching for a way out of a mindless existence that gets worse by the second. It is no wonder that drugs and alcohol are an escape route for so many, for what is there to look forward to? And for those of you who continue to bring babies into this madness, what the hell is wrong with you?
I just throw my hands up! What more is there left to say! It has ALL been said and then some!
