Nothing more to say. This long ugly walk to America of old is about power. The fear is that White power, no matter how many trick they employ to maintain the power, will be given to Brown people who have been historically exploited, mistreated, overlooked, and devalued. They are not going down without a fight, and this is fight is being fought under the auspices of “civility.”
Civility is shut up and let us tell you what’s right for you because you don’t know how you feel. Civility is the farce of voting for one “unbiased” leader to lead hundreds and thousands of you, as if one person has the pulse and understanding of the varied cultures and issues in every corner of any one community. Civility is being pushed the falsehood of living in a democracy, when we’ve really never lived in a democracy. We have a republic (re-read your pledge of allegiance, then get the dictionary to learn the differences between the two).
If there was ever a time to be unreasonable, uncivilized, civilly disobedient, and vocal about being in the minority, this is it. Silence is consent to fascism and some Gestapo shit. Anyone asking you to be civil is a secret agent of the enemy, and should not be trusted. They are comfortable, and likely have never been uncomfortable. I am thankful I grew up in the South. It prepared for me for times like these.
