iTanya – Dumping Capitalism

Civil Rights, Community, Liberation, Me, Sacramento, Self Care

I worked for Apple starting June of 2013.
Apple paid very well.
I gained hella knowledge.
I am a muthafuckin Black techie till I die.
Apple had a great cafe.
Apple had a bomb ass gym for 6.00 a month.
I had good benefits.
I worked hard and moved up the ladder.
The customers tho….abusive as fuck.
Like, I don’t get anxiety attacks but I did there.
Then Apple implied a lot that I needed to hide who I was when it came to BLM.

Black Women Aren’t Women to White Men

Civil Rights, Community, Me, Misogynoir, Sacramento

Today was the second time in the last week where a white man came up to me and spoke to me like I was another man. Like I wasn’t a woman. They wanted to confront me and fight me…physically. I didn’t provoke. I know I can and will but I didn’t. Last week someone was filming us and I asked who he was with and he ran up on me in a rage telling me he can do whatever he wants whenever he wants…that he can record me if he wants. Then he rushed off. Today a white man came up to me telling me that if I bring this specific sign to the DA’s office again “there is going to be a fucking problem.”

He said, repeatedly, “we are not pigs” (naw actual pigs are better). He was probably 2 inches from me with his chest in my face….normally im on some “nigga what” but all I could think was that I didnt have anything on me to protect myself from him …and the capitol…and getting stabbed up. He made the threat again and then walked away.

Where are we when nazi’s feel bold enough to walk in these streets declaring their whiteness?

How about the police?

I know in Sac we are out here dying every couple months from law enforcement, nationally its fucking more ridiculous and GLOBALLY we are trash to this white ass world.

They keep calling people of color minorities but we are the majority of this world!

A few days ago a security guard got killed by police for doing his fucking job!

DOING HIS DAMN JOB!!!

And the police that took his life are trying to paint this like they honored him as if he was an officer….Hey and maybe they do cause Black officers and Brown officers will go down before white ones.

Preface

Before you read this, please note that not everyone does these things or has selfish intentions. Some people are genuine. I know who they are. I know who my family is, and isn’t. I know that I have a lot of genuine and beautiful love around me in the spaces I spend time in. I don’t fault anyone for being intrigued or their admiration. This about folks being selfish and masking their selfish needs with the false idea of love. This about manipulators and vampires. People that suck the life out of you and compliment you while they do it. This is about the dehumanization of the people burning themselves out for their actual love for people. We show our love with our work.
