I know you’re right Ray. I have no confidence in the majority of White people. I also know the government has never done anything about White domestic terrorism now. They are overtly in support of White domestic terrorists and have signaled they approve of their terrorizing Black and Brown folks. They even allow White racists to terrorize White folks too now. There is one to trust and you are correct I know we must save ourselves.

My well-intended pieces are going to turn into I told you so pieces for White people insisting we should have in them collectively.

My and my family are preparing for the worst. We’ve been prepping all year for out-right, in-ya-face authoritarianism. I know better than to put my trust, hope, and faith in White people collectively. If there is an opportunity to do right or make a change, they do the opposite. If there is an opportunity for us to make progress, they stop it. They do nothing unless we demand it via rebellion and/or violence. It’s the only thing White people respond to. As for me and mines, we have food, weapons, seeds, and other rations for the period when our money is useless and they take over everything. I’m the family government head, so I know when it’s getting ready to be bad before it gets bad.

White people wouldn’t know danger to us or themselves for that matter because they live an alternative realities. I don’t have time to risk my life and my grandkids’ lives on false hope. Thank you for lookin out though. That’s why I love my people (especially my brothers). You give to us straight-no chasers.

Two things can be true at the same time…White people should be saving us (and themselves), and White people aren’t going to save us or themselves. I think it’s America is a wrap like the rest of the ruthless civilizations in our history. All I can say is Black people tried to tell them!
