Yes sirrrr….! You’re on point as always Herbert. My dad went and got shot gun ammo last week for home protection. Its the first time in my 49 years I’ve ever heard him talk about the urgency to protect his home and property. Southern Black people who lived pre and during Jim Crow know the smell in the air. The terror, the disrespect, and the destruction of life, limb, and property is unforgettable.

I would add a special warning for Black men. We know they are historically the primary targets of raging White men. Please talk to your loved ones about being out at night alone, walking from working, hanging out, etc. They will be looking for easy prey. I told my sons to practice Sun down town mindsets.

Be in your house when possible when the Sun goes down. Be aware of your surrounding at all times, and be prepared to be provoked. The ugly has been unleashed and it’s not going back into the shadows without a fight.

I write intelligent, unvarnished thoughts on anti-Blackness, racism, politics, Black people, and White Supremacy. White Fragility🚫|
