I’m saying when people blame the culture without the causes it’s shallow and stupid. Because just about everything we find in Black culture is a consequence to racism and white supremacy. And, there are good and bad consequences.
If Black people have an issue, it’s racism

Bravo for this line.

I disagree with 90% of things said about racism by almost everybody (white, black, or otherwise) so I’ve decided to usually keep out of this dangerous space since I don’t see my voice helping. In this case, though, I wanted to call out how well you captured some points I don’t hear enough.

also: “We need fingers to get the hell out of the way. And, most of all, we don’t need fingers at us.”

well said.
