“White People: I Want You To Understand Yourselves Better” @IjeomaOluo https://theestablishment.co/white-people-i-dont-want-you-to-understand-me-better-i-want-you-to-understand-yourselves-a6fbedd42ddf
As my Dad taught me, Don’t Mistake Kindness for weakness.
At my age I’ve earned the right to speak out to speak my mind. I’m not particularly concerned about losing or gaining subscribers/followers. Nor am I trying to appease white folks.
Mostly I write this blog for me. If people like it. Good. If they don’t well they can go somewhere else. If you feel I’m that “Angry Black Woman” or that Black Woman with an Attitude then feel Free to go somewhere else. Find somebody more in line with your fantasy thinking.
Those who decide to Follow it’s all good. If they leave that’s good too. I stopped looking for affirmation or validation from people a long time ago and I never sought it from white people. I can be brutally blunt and Following/Subscribing to Blogs is like watching TV shows. If you don’t like what you read then turn it off. I’ve got a very thick skin.
My comments describe the Collective Thought process of many whites not particular individuals. In my nearly 60 years of living 99% of the stupid things said to me come from white Americans. Some people want or accuse me of painting with a wide brush well if the shoe fits wear it. I’m a Rebel with a Cause!! Black Power Salute!!
No apologies. Don’t really care what other people think of me because like I said I don’t need the affirmation. Now you don’t have to agree with me and I don’t expect most white Americans to agree with me because we are living in two different worlds. To me your world is filled with Fairy Tales but Fairy tales don’t have any people who look like me.
Pretty much I have a Fuck You Attitude towards the ruling class. I have No faith in the racist American system nor do I expect things to get better. Pretty much they’ve steadily been getting worse and as for the Joker in the “White House.” I did not vote for him. Nor did probably most African-Americans. We are only approximately 12% of the population. Therefore you know why Mr. Asshole is in there.
Yup! I’m unapologetically Black and don’t care who knows it! I Own my Race and my views! I don’t make nice!
If you feel Offended Feel Free to Leave because if you’ve looking for an apology you won’t get one from me. No sympathy nor any understanding. Middle Finger Up!! By the way I’m not going to argue with you or answer any foolish idiotic comments. They will be read and deleted. I encounter enough dumbfuckery from the workplace.
Drops mike. Leaves Room.
