Thought of the day
May 26, 2020
"Racism is a learned behavior. And, like a
petulant, spoiled and entitled child, racists
will continue to do what you allow them to
get away with. Strictly talking about the
justice system here. From the all white male
jury that exonerated the men who beat,
tortured, and shot #EmmittTill for allegedly disrespecting a white woman, to the killers
of #TrayvonMartin , #PhilandoCastile ,
#AltonSterling , #MikeBrown , and #EricGarner
to name too few, being set free after a "trial"
because they claim self defense or "stand your
ground" laws that are enacted only when
convenient to the oppressor.
#GeorgeFloyd was the last straw. Racists have
had the knee on the neck of Black people for centuries. It finally played out on video for the
World to see. It ripped off the band-aid of pacification from the passage of the Civil
Rights Act. It never went away, it just became
illegal. The inflammatory rhetoric of the
current "leader" of this country has emboldened
those who continue to practice generational hatred based on skin color.
W.R.E.a.C Havoc do not condone acts of hate
of any kind. We stand with the peaceful
protestors and condemn any instigators of
needless violence against person or property!
White people, from the street corner, to the
suburbs, to the affluent neighborhoods, to
celebrity row, your voices are needed now
more than ever. You must exercise your privilege
to live and walk freely without the fear of
being harassed, profiled, beaten or shot to
express your disgust and displeasure with the treatment of Black people in this country.
Maybe the ignorance will CEASE if people
that don't look like us STAND UP for US!
It must. We are all human beings. We are
entitled to be treated equal, with access to
the same rights. One Nation, Under GOD!
That's what the Pledge of Allegiance says.
We spoke those words as a kid in our schools.
We don't feel that way and haven't for a long
Enough is enough! Black people existed long
before being brought to America. We will be
heard in the streets, in the media, at the
POLLS... so that you can finally see us.
One Love. One Voice. One Accord."
