No dilly dallying, beating around the bush here. I just have a simple message to the (few) racist white people. Stop killing us! Sheesh! How wicked can your hearts be? Just how disgustingly wicked can you be to put your knee on a fellow human’s neck for so long that his life leaves his body? I mean, he’s gone. Dead. Does that even make you cringe at all? And your colleagues stand there in approval of what you are doing? The crowd is pleading along with George Floyd for you to let go, but it means absolutely nothing because the fallen system will back you up for lynching an African American man in broad daylight. It’s the reason why our old uncle in the White House has not yet addressed the nation about this… it’s almost like an implied approval. Sickening.
We are waiting. We are waiting for yet another “I am not racist” statement from those heartless cops. Just like Amy Cooper, the woman who called the cops on an African American man for absolutely no reason. I was angry when I read her “I’m not racist” statement. Honey booboo, you are. You hate black people, and you think we are criminals. That’s exactly why you pulled your entitled “Karen” caucasity card and called the cops, fake-sobbing like you were actually in danger. “Karen”, I mean, Amy honey, people only call the cops on criminals, and not on a man standing in the park, minding his business. Think about it. Just what if Christian Cooper did not record the stupid act that Amy put up? What would have happened to him? Days, months, years in prison? Or even worse, he could have had a knee on his neck and become another hashtag?
You know what’s funny? Amy or “Karen” or whatever her name is, could very well be a manager at her job with African Americans reporting to her. She’ll go around being fake-nice to them, because of course “she’s not racist”. Oh please! Now we know, deep down she sees them as a threat, not real people. So do you think they will ever get promoted over a “Logan” or “Wyatt”? Of course not. This is the ridiculous caucasity that we have to deal with.
Dear white people, we are tayad. But Jesus said if they slap us on one cheek, we should turn the other. We have turned and turned, and are out of more places for you to slap. JUST STOP KILLING US ALREADY.
My blood is so angry. Everything in me is angry. I’m angry for all the unjust deaths. And Ahmaud Aubrey who went running in his neighborhood? It’s cute and all that they arrested the killers, but they need to throw their entire family away. Let’s start with Lindsay McMichael, sister and daughter of the killers. Your father and brother kill a whole human, and you post a picture of his dead body at the crime scene, talmabout “I’m a true crime fan”, like this is all a joke?! She too needs to be thrown the heck away. Just lock up the entire family and their evil thinking so they don’t reproduce more of themselves. “Well, what about their kids?” You ask? Good question. They need to go to foster care just the way they take our kids away from us. Their parents have poisoned minds, and are not fit to raise the kids, or we will have another generation of ignant wicked people.
Harsh much? Absolutely. But you know what is even more harsh if there are no hard consequences for these racist behaviors? An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. Yes, Karen and Luke booboo. I said what I said. Or how long do you think you will keep killing other people’s children before they react in anger? That’s why there was a violent protest in Minneapolis, with fires and looting and everything. Was that right? Absolutely not. But we are sick and tired of being killed, darnit!
I always say this – if there are extreme consequences, people will think twice before they take action. Like if any man who rapes a woman is castrated, do you really think we would have as many rape cases? All of a sudden, tah-dah!, the ignorant men will finally figure out what “consent” means. It is the same thing for racism… I will let your imaginations wonder…
Did I write this post in anger? Obviously, yes; there’s almost no filter applied. Will it be an entirely different post if I waited two months to cool off? Eeer yes. But sometimes, we need to speak up when we are all up in our emotions so people understand exactly how the shoe pinches. We’ve said it nicely over and over again, but those at the back have not heard us. They say they are not racist, but it all shows in their actions. Why do I trust my friends at church who are majority white? It’s because their actions show that they are genuinely kind. They pray for me when I don’t even ask for prayers, they take care of my kids, and they give the biggest hugs ever. Don’t tell me you are not racist. I don’t want to hear it. Let your actions show it. We are not a threat. We are humans just like you. STOP KILLING US ALREADY.

For my white friends, and really anyone who wants to do something for racial justice, this link has a long list of things you can do. Yes, it’s hard work, but just pick a few and do it. Most importantly, please pray for peace and God’s love to penetrate all our hearts. Other ideas you have on improving racial justice are welcome in the comments section.
