Another equally obvious example of white folks' lack of concern for anybody but themselves is the so-called "opioid crisis." Black and brown people have been begging and pleading with the "white power structure" for decade after decade to stop punishing drug addicts and low-level dealers, and provide treatment instead; to treat drug addiction as a public health issue and not as a criminal matter.

Thank you Herbert. This is my pet peeve along with the legalization of marijuana AFTER White folks figured out it could help their White children stay alive and not have seizures. No one has said the war on drugs was bs or discussed repairing the damage done by both Democratic and Republican presidents to Black men, women, and children. Now that they’ve shipped our jobs overseas for “globalization” they need other ways to sustain their local and state economies. Legalizing weed is a way for White folks to get rich after penalizing Black and Brown folks for decades. It’s a new tax to replace corporate taxes that left either with tax breaks or trade acts.
What goes around comes around, and White America ain’t seen nothing yet. No matter what happens though, let’s make one thing clear. White people need us. They can’t survive without us, and they hate that. I just have to shake my head sometimes at their lack of self-awareness. But it’s times like these where I actually get to see them worried and suffering because of their own apathy towards others and I feel as though they are getting what they deserve.
Life and bad times are the best teachers.
They gonna learn in 2020 how to vote like Black people and understand what that really means (lol). Trump is trying to stay out of jail and he’d take away his mammy’s vote if it mean he gets to stay free. White folks are just Trump’s collateral damage — and we all know how they hate not being centered.
