Just Go Ahead and Say Nigger

…….because- we realize that, even you………., have come to vilify the horrors of the Jim Crow South. We are aware that you, upon your observation of the photos of lynched African men and women, you are as horrified as we are,…………maybe.

We are aware that you are not likely to have been personally involved in any type of action that has caused physical harm to, nor brought about the demise of anyone, much less any persons of African descent.

We are aware that there is no sympathy within you, for us. No energy to be given to the cause of re-humanizing the African, who’s humanity, *America* has sought, for so many centuries, to destroy.

We are aware that you have no desire to, nor any anything to gain if you were to, face down the true history of what we have endured as a result of our having been snatched from our homelands and FORCED to be………… Americans.

We realize that your perspectives on the true identity of the African race in America has been shaped by your own fantasy. By your own willingness to invest in the machines that churn out negro ignorance as a faucet does water.

We know exactly why you’ve done this.

We are also aware that we have accepted your perspectives on the nature of our being, as our own.

We know that you believe that all matters on race are closed, and that all racial inequity died with MLK.

We know that the crime that exists in our communities comes into direct contention with your ability to recognize the true sources and causes for the pathologies of that criminality.

We can see that you will tolerate only the images that will reinforce your narrative of African inferiority while you simultaneously feign disdain for the idea that you are somehow supreme. We know that the language of supremacy has evolved.

We know that you feel that all lives matter. We can only see that you value white and blue lives. We know that you aren’t ………racists — and that you have……………. black friends and that you treat the cashier at the local Kroger the same as the cashier at Whole Foods. We also know that you are disgusted at the idea that Black lives, too, matter!

We are under no illusion that you harbor any affection for our culture or for our contributions to this society. We also know that you enjoy watching us create, and somehow feel zero guilt once your observations give way to full blown theft.

We watch you make humor of the tastemakers, and artisans of our communities from generations of our past- while simultaneously sucking the very life from the innovations of our most gifted producers of the current generation. We know that it won’t be long before you come with your bags of green freedom to offer up as payment for our souls. I hope we will not accept.

We fully understand the meaning of the word victim. Thus our victimhood is undeniable, while simultaneously being inconceivable to those who share your reality. We are aware that your orientations and perspectives to history, are different, by necessity than those shared by us and ours.

We are aware that we, are not a part of you. We are aware that at the very moment when the numbers of us migrating to your communities rises above 8 percent, you will pack up, en masse, and move to a place where there is ZERO infrastructure to rid yourself of the burden of sharing space………… with us.

Here’s the problem — not enough of US are aware, YET, that there even is an US. To many of us, believe we are a part of YOU.

They believe, about you, as you do, about yourselves. They believe about themselves, as YOU believe about them.

Your narrative is powerful. Your truth, to them — is real. They have accepted their own inferiority and surrendered to your truth as a means of SURVIVAL.

To challenge this dominant view of reality has caused the demise of a great many African persons. Who are they, to challenge 4 centuries of consistency?

Your technology though, is increasing the rates in which awakening is happening. Your technology is putting the uncomfortable truth before the consciousness of the sleeping masses and causing the arousal of the people to a heightened state of consciousness. The responses, in the beginning, are chaotic. The variance of perspective, abundant, the absence of perspective is, however, SHRINKING.

I pray the creators blessing over the world in which we must coexist as this BLACKHEAD in the skin of America ripens, and readies itself to be popped as we know where you stand!

We know where we must stand, also!

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
