This is the point.
White people tried to make justifications for Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown.
Tried to overlook Tami Rice and John Crawford.
Tried to brush away the countless murders of black people by police over decades.
Tried to pretend the issue does not revolve around race. Tried to pretend that we “couldn’t know what happened” since there was no video of the incident and that “they should’ve just done what the cop told them.”
We, white people, can no longer sit there in happy bliss, pretending the Real Racists are the “people who always bring up race!!1!”
A man was just shot point blank in the face in his car by a police officer for no reason. It was caught on video.
This is the point where anyone who is not woke, cannot stay asleep any longer. This is the point where white people need to face a cruel, hard, unsettling reality that racism never went away, and not only that, but remained a key component of our culture.
We have Neo-Nazis and KKK members walking around the streets with their heads held high, shouting louder than ever in the face of those they hate. We have our police killing these people for any reason they can think of. We have countless people who refuse to acknowledge that there is any kind of race issue even happening.
This is the point where you wake the fuck up and realize what a fucking mess your precious Land of the Free really is.
