joe who


I’m not giving him the time of day. I’m interested in having conversations, Brooke, that will move people of all races forward in this country. I’m interested in having a conversation that will help us to admit the wrongs that were done in this country and how we move forward. I am not interested in trying to convince and change the mind of a bigot. Someone who will openly troll me and say things that are offensive, that he knows are not true.

I mean, it’s very frustrating and I’m tired of people telling me that black people are beneath a standard when we have to be twice as good all the time.  And that is why I said, I’m not interested in having a dialogue with someone like Joe who has demonstrated a propensity towards bigotry. And he did that on Twitter yesterday in 140 characters or less.

She said “Not today.”
She said “I shall not.”
She said “I have had it officially.”
She said “Don’t try me, try Jesus.”
She said “Go get a switch.”
She said “Look at these receipts.”
She said “Fuck yo couch.”
She said “No weapon formed against me shall prosper.”
She said “Bitch please.”
She said “I coulda had a V8.”
She said “Bye Felicia.”
She said “You got the wrong one to put you in the right place today sir.”
She said “If you feelin froggy, leap.”
She said “Bless your heart.”
She said “There’s the exit.”

Angela Rye is fed up and she is channeling all of us on today.  I feel so blessed.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
