Don’t fix your mouth to condemn an entire 97% peaceful and GLOBAL movement against police brutality and racism because one man was off his rocker.
Don’t convince yourself anyone is ‘living up to the stereotype,’ ‘proving them right’ or ‘giving them a reason.’
Vicious, racist police (notice the differentiation. Notice the specification. Notice I’m not grouping ALL police together), have been proving communities of color right, living up to the stereotypes and giving us a ‘reason’ for centuries.
The fact we haven’t burned this mutha down yet in spite of The ever abundant new and improved ways we are simultaneously disenfranchised and exploited is a testament to our sheer fucking awesomeness if I’m being completely honest.
