I’m going to vent my spleen today. And with good cause. The bulk of the white population of this country really does not understand what the black experience is. And if I see one more white twat on Fox News talking about it, I might just lose my mind.
In the Bay Area we’re pretty integrated. My friends are every machination of the rainbow. But here’s the thing, if you’re Filipino/black like one friend of mine, you’re black. If you’re Japanese/black, you’re black. If you’re white/black you’re black. And you’re now at risk. That’s right, perfectly innocent people who have some melanin in their skin are at risk. Every one of them in America today. And last night we got to watch it play out live on Facebook.
Philando Castile and his girlfriend and her 4yo daughter were driving down the road, minding their own business when a St. Anthony’s cop pulled them over for a broken taillight.
The big problem, besides they shot and killed a man for following instructions? The tail lights worked fine. He told the officer he had a gun, the officer told him to produce his identity. Conflicting instructions by a cop. Like that’s never happened before. Their adrenaline rushes and they give conflicting instructions. We pretend like they’re trained to the nines but they ain’t. And he pumps at least three shots into the man. In front of his girlfriend and her 4yo. That cop shot him like a rabid dog.
This must end. As far as I’m concerned the police state in this country needs to be dismantled. They’ve proven over and over again that they cannot properly due their job without shooting the brown public. Enough. Enough.
