In other words, their credit is bad! I feel ya and I’m there too. We shouldn’t trust them or anyone until they are worthy of the honor. We’ve been conditioned to trust and forgive White people despite them showing us time and time again we shouldn’t. I don’t trust them until they show me I can.

Anyone can show you they are with you when things are good which is when White people show up. Good = good for them. When things are bad for us, they are silent, absent, apathetic, and confused about what to do. They don’t know how to fight. You are absolutely well within your rights to NOT trust them. It’s common sense not to trust them. When we go against our guts we get screwed each time. We should not feel guilty for not trusting them, and we should not be guilted into trusting them.

This is a domestic violence situation that has been going on for 400 years. It’s a continuation of human trafficking.
