ONCE AGAIN, WE DEAL WITH THE IMPERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES TO WHITE AMERICA…BUT VERY PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES TO BLACK AMERICA…OF GEORGE FLOYD, ANOTHER BLACK MAN MURDERED BY THE POLICE. It is impersonal to White America because Whites do not have to deal with the dangers of racist policemen killing White males. Never have…Never will.
White mothers and fathers do not have to talk with their White sons about the police, like Black mothers and fathers must talk with their Black sons about the police. White mothers and fathers do not have to dread that late-night telephone call about their White sons, like Black mothers and fathers have to dread that late-night telephone call about their Black sons. White mothers and fathers do not have to talk with their White sons about Black folks calling the police on them, like Black mothers and fathers must talk with their Black sons about White folks calling the police on them.
Understand White America, police do not protect Black folks. Police protect You. It is your police department…mostly White…mostly racist…mostly not giving a damn about “that criminal element on the other side of town.” You have this reasonable sense of security because you know the White police force in the Black community…also called Occupation troops…will “keep the savages –‘the others’--away from you.”
You are upset because we tell you that you are racist with countless daily examples, and your response is, you do not have a racist bone in my body. You do not even know how racist you are, and you created racism. You do not see the racist police problem because the Racist attitudes on the part of the White police department is really a microcosm of you. You are Racist and the Racist police are your clones.
No you do not wear a robe and a hood…and Nigger might not be a part of your lexicon, but “urban” and “lazy” and “low-income” and “welfare” and “free lunch” and “service workers” and your silence fill your racist voids.
White police do not deal with White folks the same way…not even when they are White violent so-called demonstrators or even White murderers of Blacks. We saw that up close and personal during the “open up” demonstration or whatever the hell they were. White folks with guns, were all up in the faces of White police ...spitting in their faces....and the police said nothing, and did nothing. No arrests…no choke holds…no knees on the neck and head…no bullets fired at fleeing White folks…no handcuffing…no deaths…no nothing. And need I mention the name of Dylan Roof and his infamous Burger King trip?
George Floyd is simply another Black male murdered by White police. He joins a painfully long list. It is a ho hum affair for you, and yet, it is indicative of the pathology of Murderous and Racist Christian White America, and its personal armed security guards, aka police.
The Struggle Continues!
