The Divided States of Murica
It’s so much deeper than the constant, senseless acts of brutality. It’s a whole system intentionally designed to demean and incriminate the colors of our people who aren’t pale and basically glowing in the dark. If it’s not a black person being slaughtered, then ICE is coming through to take children from their parents and forcing individuals to back to the place they originally left out of their own safety or whatever the case may be. There are people/industries profiting off of injustices and the mistreatment (ex. Private prisons). It keeps happening because the system of inadequates that is our government doesn’t want it to stop. They want us in a state of anger and panic so there is an excuse to keep stripping our rights away one by one.
It’s strange how the wealthy and government officials of the “United” States are thriving and safe, far away from the ones who are fighting to simply just be a human being, with basic human rights. Literally, black people are fighting for their right to simply be able to walk down the street without being ran down and interrogated about their existence.
Do not underestimate the power of humanity, because if the government isn’t doing anything for and to protect “we the people” then how can the people prevail when they have us hyped up and divided? That’s was their plan and execution all along.
I’ve had plenty of firsthand experiences of my own white privilege excusing me from these corruptions that people who don’t fall under the pale, glow in the dark or Karen categories.
Ps. Usually anything I post these days are pertaining to my dogs, so don’t be fooled, #hank sensed I was posting something that wasn’t about him and INSISTED on making a cameo so I used him as my blackout. #blackouttuesday #blacklivesmatter
