Us 70s, 80s &90s babies are just…being shocked out of our laziness. Across the color scale. We thought what our granddaddies did, what mom & dad marched With John &Becky for was the final answer. We were lulled ìnto a dream that, though not killed, the beast had lost the taste of us. &we spread our wings, touting the changes that did manifest like wind beneath them.
We forgot…that beast was happy to kill them too for standing with us.
We need to understand… alot of#goodpeople Didn’t forget that.
It is easier to be #ledandfed no matter what your skin color is. &it leads to an empty life. Which is the goal. Controlling empty lives.
The people i went to high school with have kids coming of age now. &there IS a diff clip to these kids because even though WE didn’t recognize it as such…we dealt with a brand of pissed off systemic racism that would’ve bewildered our grandparents to be given the chance to face down. Making 6 figures doing the job is your dreams yet being called a nigger- we defiantly went into schools that didn’t want us unless they could brainwash is, saw the racket that was, kept exploring. These kids…scare me with how proud they make me.
We know how we got shit done. &we gave birth to a generation that has the potential to To HELP US END this madness. But we don’t get to stand down. Our multiethnic, multinational friends don’t get to stand down, either.
Regardless of what the System induced/introduced multiculturalism for…THIS TIME NOW is when we show them Why WE took to going beyond small town borders into each others arms. What WE knew was blatantly revolutionary about it as we did it.
This is our Revolution, #fureakingHippies #generationX #generationY #generationZ
We can’t let these wily #millenial offspring go this alone. We went through shit believing it was getting better. &it has. Which is why the beast is showing out. It’s in its #deaththroes.
#philandocastille &#altonsterling & the 121 other Black men &79 Latino men did not die in vain.
