Why wouldn’t you be able to follow this blog? I have upward to almost 60,000 people following this blog, and I’m quite sure that a ton of white people follow this blog. My concern with white people following this blog is their attempts to invade and control the content that’s promoted here.
See, black truth has always been white discomfort.
There is a humongous disconnect in black people’s dialect, language, and experience than white’s people’s.
When you hear me sounding off stating that “I DON’T FUCK WITH WHITE PEOPLE!” What I mean is:
If you’re WHITE and following this blog, PLEASE understand that you’re welcomed here but this blog and space is NOT your therapy session. This isn’t a space for you to give your unsolicited white opinions in regards to the “Black Experience”. This isn’t a space where I’m going to give a shit about your white feelings over something I’ve written.
Admittedly, this sounds fractious and malicious, but understand that….
We as people of color have to cope with our innocent black children and family members being murdered in the streets by racist white people, we have to cope with being oppressed by white people, being imprisoned for profit by white people and being financially and culturally exploited by white people.
Imagine our psychological state when in comes some oblivious lilly white asshole attempting to cause more harm by pandering for our sympathy because we had the audacity to speak openly and honestly about the crimes against people of color at the hands of white racist people.
I’m not saying that you’re not welcomed here as a white person, I am saying that the psychological harm that you cause through acting like you’re the victim of being murdered, oppressed, imprisoned, ostracized, raped, enslaved, and dehumanized is NOT WELCOMED HERE IN A SPACE THAT CELEBRATE PEOPLE OF COLOR THAT HAVE EXPERIENCED ALL THAT AND MUCH MORE AT THE HANDS OF WHITE PEOPLE FOR 600 YEARS.
Unlike President Obama, I absolutely recognize skin color, poverty, police brutality, and the racist economic exploitation system of American capitalism. I’m aghast and offended by anyone who doesn’t acknowledge these realities in AMERICA- but I strictly measure people for their ability or inability to exhibit kindness, truth, love, character, and talent.
NEVER by the color of their skin, and the truth of the matter is that you have to forgive me if I don’t marvel over white people’s talentless being, white people’s undeveloped invective minds, or white people’s aggressive promotion of their white privilege of being celebrated for no apparent reason at all.
So, if you’re a white being following this blog please know that you’re MORE than welcomed to do so-but also know that this space isn’t about you or your white privilege. If you’re here, be here to be open, to learn, to listen, and to love.
NOT TO DENY FACTS ABOUT RACISM, TO HATE BLACK SKIN ANONYMOUSLY IN THE SHADOWS, DON’T BE HERE TO APPROPRIATE BLACK CULTURE AS A VACATION FROM YOUR STALE WHITE EXISTENCE, AND DON’T BE HERE TO RATIONALIZE THE HATEFUL ACTIONS OF YOUR WHITE FATHERS.
This isn’t directed at you per say, but I’m speaking in general to all the white people who follow this blog.
