Why do you always make it about race?

Because when you are a Black human being living in an anti-Black world, everything you do is always about race. Just existing is a political statement. Having moments of happiness is revolutionary and we have to actually be intentional to have them.

How Come I Can’t Act Mad?

“A riot is the language of the unheard.  -Martin Luther King, Jr.”

Hmmph!

By now you know about Trayvon Martin, and how his murderer George Zimmerman, was found to be “not guilty.” It gets pretty redundant, typing out all of the reasons he should have been found guilty. Discussing how dumb and/or racist the jurors were for not convicting Zimmerman. Acknowledging how much better his parents are then I, or anyone else would be, during this time when the courts have placed a value of zero on their sons life. I can’t even begin to know how the Martin’s keep their sanity with all that’s going on. I am still going to talk a little bit MORE about a few things that need to be said, besides all of that.
