Throughout the weekend multiple riots broke out in the United States over the killing of George Floyd by suspected white supremacist Derek Chauvin. But despite the fact that people of all races can be seen rioting, the mainstream media only seems to keep its focus on the black rioters while protecting the white rioters.

what i don’t understand is why “we” keep expecting fairness and justice on stolen land and think “we” can beg our oppressors into doin “what is right” by us….
we know there are separate laws & treatment for “us” and “them”, so why do we kept acting surprised and taken aback when shit goes left for us…. “we” know “they” want to get rid of us if they can’t profit off of us in some kind of way….
the “system” isn’t designed to benefit “us” so why do “we” kept expecting to integrate into a broken system and fix it from the insides…. u either gonna bow down or get laid down….
why do “we” trust “their” directives when time and time again, they fuck us over…. why do “we” even listen to them at all? is it because “they” taught “us” to not trust each other and to believe in a deity in “their” image to put themselves subliminally as superior in “our” heads? Even when most of “their” esoteric knowledge was taught or stolen from “our” ancestors and used to empower themselves….
Do “we” think dressing like “them” , looking like “them” or buying “their” brand labeled goods will endear them to “us” and make them like us just a little more? Or is imitation the best form of flattery and submission?
if u didn’t know, “we” ran this mudball at one time…. and some of “us” were not kind beneficent rulers…. tyrants even… and this is the key to why “we” have no friends…. no one wants us back on top of things….

And by the year 2060, a total of 22 states are projected to have what demographers call, somewhat oxymoronically, “majority-minority” populations. Continue reading →
When Hurricane Katrina pounded the southeast of New Orleans on August 29, 2005, the resultant flooding affected Greater New Orleans and claimed some 1,464 lives leaving damage worth $70 billion. Continue reading →
This is vastly different than that Hollyweird fantasy of the ‘Green Book’ .
