"allies"

 

“If you are silent about your pain, they’ll kill you and say you enjoyed it.” Zora Neale Hurston

a "well meaning" white woman told me i should stop talking about racism today because i might start to lose money. lmfao! as if me being born a black woman didnt make me lose money/opportunities my entire life. it's 2021 & white people STILL DONT GET IT. you can afford to sit back with your head in the sand pretending like everything is ok. absolutely nothing going on is affecting you negatively.

your life is not my life. i literally cannot even walk to the store without others trying to hate crime me yet i'm supposed to be silent of all these things done against me.

instead of using her privilege to be an ally, she basically told me to sit down & smile. i am not a coward, i have NEVER been a coward. my ancestors didnt have a voice so i have to speak for them. if that offends you then that will continue to be your problem..........
