You know, it’s reached a point where if I actually think something and you or Sam think something else, I should just go with whatever you say because trusting most of white culture is just too faulty. Y’all would have been very proud of me last night, though; I had a political fight with my brother,…
Lol White culture maybe too faulty, but they are oh so predictable if you’re not entrenched in it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been right, especially with politics. None of my friends thought Hillary was going to lose…I told them Trump was going to win. Now, we all sat stunned in the aftermath, but after 8 years of the race baiting by the GOP, the tea party, the disrespect, and the White Nationalist/White nativist calls I knew this thing was embedded in White culture now. They had been given the green light to be violent, to lie, to be disrespectful to people of color with little or no checking by White men. They threw rocks and hid their hands, and usual.
Keep sounding like us Sherry. We need all the help we can get. People of color will never fight racism, and oppression of allies like you don’t rise to the challenge. This is no time to cower. For us, we have nothing to lose, we’re in this thing for the long haul. But calling a spade a spade has teeth when men and women like you do it.
Now, I’m going to give you my prediction. There is going to be no Blue wave. Republicans are striking the right dog whistles for White men and White women, and they’ve already shown a complete and utter disregard for truth. If you watched Trump’s rally when he called himself a “Nationalist,” and the White folks cheered like they were in a basketball game, that’s the truth of most of America. It’s the truth because the there are too man good white people who know better who are silent, and who will vote with the majority because they fear the bullies.
Hate is powerful my friend! They got it wrong on Trump, and I believe White commentators and political analyst are underestimating racism and White privilege. It shall be revealed.
