He's hurting the wrong people. While I believe many White people see what's happening to us, make no mistake about it, they are hurting too. Not like Black folks of course, but White people are uncomfortable too. They are unemployed and underemployed too. They have relatives who have died from Covid-19 just like Black and Latino people. Their votes are being suppressed just like the Black man's vote always has been. They know what that shit feels like now.

White folks are being evicted and having to go to food banks just like poor us. They were told they were going to be on top again so they remained indifferent as they always have. They thought a White woman was going to be in power and saw Black people and people of color did not want that for their lives. We've seen that movie. White people finally see many of the things we've felt. They are uncomfortable and impoverished like Black people and they want to make it stop.

I don't believe most White people possess the emotional intelligence to have learned a lesson. They only care because they are personally experiencing tragedy. Choices have consequences and their choosing White Supremacy over humanity has a cost. The bill is due. Now we all must pay the price. When are they ever going to learn?

Great piece. I'm looking forward to reading your work. I say your promo piece on Twitter.

I write intelligent, unvarnished thoughts on anti-Blackness, racism, politics, Black people, and White Supremacy. White Fragility🚫| www.ko-fi.com/marleyk
