Whether you agree with the means by which black people organize for their freedom or not, the Black Panthers, Black Lives Matter, or any other movement for black liberation would not exist if white people had not kidnapped and enslaved Africans, created racism, and then continued to this day to oppress, exploit, and exclude black people. The white supremacist founding of our nation and ongoing oppression of the black community and other communities of color is the precise reason black people build movements of resistance. So, if you really can’t stand Beyoncé’s race politics popping up on your television or YouTube feed, you’d be wise to get to work on dismantling white supremacy. It will be a lot more effective than calling her a racist.
