Wow that blog post was spot on Lakitha. I couldn’t have said it any better. The slang “keeping the Black man down” didn’t just come from nowhere. It’s a collective thought about how America’s institutions and citizens work for some of them while working against most of us, even if it kills them. As long as they don’t have, I’m good! I’m happy. Mission accomplished.
That’s pure evil. Stupid too, but really evil.
And so when you have people in both political parties doing the same thing, we sit like watching a tennis match at Wimbledon. Both are bad, one is just less bad than the other. Which evil do I choose?
It’s a hard row to hoe being Black in this country.
