I’m so tired of seeing “Well POC kill more POC than white ppl” “Look at what they’re doing, burning down our stores” “POC aren’t oppressed we just had a black president”
You’ve got to be kidding yourself if you don’t think what we did to an entire race isn’t going to affect generations and generations to come. Black and white schools weren’t even INTEGRATED until 1954 and if you don’t think that our grandparents are still passing down that hate to their kids, who are passing it down to their kids, who are currently some of our own government and police force who get a slap on the wrist when they murder a POC, then you’ve got to be kidding yourself.
You’ve got to be kidding yourself if you think suppressing an entire race, for hundreds and hundreds of years, owning them as slaves, murdering them with zero reproductions, moving them into ghettos so they can’t make money, segregating them because of the color of their skin, and THEN expect them to return to society as if nothing happened when these senseless murders are STILL going on.
Instead of spreading more hate for them, why don’t we LISTEN to their cries. A riot is the language of the unheard. Meet them with compassion and empathy and say we see you and we stand by you. Nobody should have to feel any type of way because of the color of their skin.
I’m not black but I stand with you.
I’m not black but I see you.
I’m not black but I hear you.
I’m not black but I will fight for you.
