I support the White Nationalists!
Who’s with me on the road back to Africa? Let’s Make America great again!
LOL I bet most of ya’ll clicked this post because ya’ll were thinking that I lost my damn mind…but if you know me well, then you already know that a plot twist is coming.
It’s pretty crazy to think that in 2017 we’re still fighting over racial disparity around the world (more so North America). I mean, I never thought that our generation will live to witness events such as what occurred in Virginia and what has been occurring in the last few years; but, it’s naïve ass thinking to assume we know to do better. Why do I say this?
Think of racism in America like an animal in the zoo. You take an animal from the wild, cage it, sedate it and do whatever is necessary to make the animal behave for the public eye. You feed into the animal’s needs, but at the bare minimum so that it survives but can’t cause massive harm in its pursuit of survival. You give the animal freedom within its cage, but you monitor the animal to make sure it doesn’t go bat shit crazy. The moment you unlock that cage and set the animal free for whatever reason, what do you think will happen? That’s America in a nutshell; the key holders are Trump and the media, and now we have a bunch of empowered butt hurt individuals crying for their “nationalist rights”.
I came across www.nationalist.ca, which is basically an unregistered political party in Canada that “promotes the maintenance of European heritage in Canada”. Honestly, read through their policies, because the shit is comicaaaallll.
Don’t get it twisted. I’m all for people having the freedom to believe and practice what they want, but it’s the audacity of this whole thing that kills me. Like how are you going to be foaming at the mouth about restricting immigration laws and foreign trade, when the clothes you’re wearing were literally sewn in China, and the people doing the shitty jobs for you are immigrants? Riddle me this. What makes a child of European descent, whose grandparents were “explorers” that developed this nation, more American than the child of African descent, whose grandparents were slaves taken from their countries by the explorers to ALSO develop this nation? Or what about the child whose grandparents were Aboriginals literally living life unbothered prior to European and African settlement? What is this entitlement though? America isn’t a white nation. It literally has never been and never will be.Why does this matter for us?
The reason I chose this title for today’s post was because I was having a conversation with a black brother about the shit blowing up in Virginia. He basically said that he doesn’t support the racism associated with these so called Nationalists, but he can resonate with the fact that they are just trying to preserve the American way of life (i.e. restrict things like sending jobs overseas, the LGBT agenda and the pressure to comply to Islamic practices). Here’s how I see it: as a person of colour, support for these people in any way is basically support for slavery. LOL no for real though, this whole Nationalist bullshit is coming from the people whose heroes were responsible for the Holocaust, whose heroes were strong advocates in maintaining the laws that gave blacks zero rights in America, and of course, LITERALLY lynched niggas. I was baffled by this conversation to say the least.
This shit fucking matters. This matters so much because we’re living in a time when people are on edge and are easily offended by everything. The media has done its job in creating a division and making white people feel like they’ve become political targets in the war on race. Now I know that not every white person thinks like this, but I can confidently say that a majority of white people experience a superiority complex with POC, even if they are all friends. POC know exactly what I’m talking about. It’s those subtle or nonverbal interactions we experience that make our eye twitch for a quick second (when you have to just pretend it didn’t happen). So take that complex in the time we are in now and pair it with Nationalist rhetoric….the Nazi era repeats itself.So where do we go from here?
Bruh, I’m tired of being the enemy. I’m tired of trying to have the conversations or trying to make people get it. I’m tired of having to tone down my “blackness”- trying to find the medium between not being too loud or too silent about my pain. I’m tired of the experiences like when I was a cashier interacting with certain white people that refused to touch my hands during cash exchanges. I’m tired of being treated like an outcast in the only place that I know of as home. I’m tired of complaining. I’m tired of advocating. I’m just tired. So at the end of the day, I won’t support them, and I will be the first to shut this nonsense down. But yo, I’m so drained that heading to Africa sounds pretty dope right about now. Of course, on the condition that all of us immigrants and children of immigrants leave and take back what we brought/ continue to give to Murikkka. LITERALLY everything!
So who’s with me on the road back to Africa? Let’s Make America great again! *wink* *wink*
In all seriousness now, a simple but not so simple solution is to never sleep on voting and stay woke. Things are happening at a rate that we may not be able to handle if we stay asleep.
