Dear White People,<br>The majority of people on welfare are white. The poorest county in the country is white. By cheerin attacks on welfare you’re only cheering for the demise of poor white people. Black people will be ok. We figured out how to make something out of nothing hundreds of years ago. We had to, our survival depended on it. We are very good at it, and can still look fly in the process… a fuck you for trying to break us. <br><br>Poor and newly poor whites don’t possess that skill. They never had to in a system that was built off our blood, sweat and tears for white success. Now white elites got y’all cheering budget cuts thinking it will hurt us. We’ll be ok, nothing this country has done or will do to us will break us. We built for struggle. Your poor and newly poor white relatives ain’t. If self medicating on opioids and meth to ease their fall don’t get them, the realization that they been bamboozled all their lives will.

Dear White People,
The majority of people on welfare are white. The poorest county in the country is white. By cheerin attacks on welfare you're only cheering for the demise of poor white people. Black people will be ok. We figured out how to make something out of nothing hundreds of years ago. We had to, our survival depended on it. We are very good at it, and can still look fly in the process... a fuck you for trying to break us.

Poor and newly poor whites don't possess that skill. They never had to in a system that was built off our blood, sweat and tears for white success. Now white elites got y'all cheering budget cuts thinking it will hurt us. We'll be ok, nothing this country has done or will do to us will break us. We built for struggle. Your poor and newly poor white relatives ain't. If self medicating on opioids and meth to ease their fall don't get them, the realization that they been bamboozled all their lives will.

Trump thought Only Black People Were on Welfare

In fact, the vast majority of welfare beneficiaries are not black. .repubhubembed{display:none;}

Especially when you take under consideration how the Ferguson Commission came about...

"The people who support the concept of Black Lives Matter are not the same, nor do they have the same ideological orientation as the organization or its founders. You may disagree, but to date there is no BLM chapter in Saint Louis.

Moving right along today, 3 years ago as Ferguson was still in unrest, local black people in the Saint Louis region, with a few allies, little or no resources other than what came out of their pockets, unarmed, but fearless were building the momentum towards generating intergenerational solidarity across class, gender, and other boundaries. Little did they know that other forces from across the country were about to descend upon the city, infiltrate them and appropriate their struggle for their own ideological purposes.

But before I get carried away, as that event was still a couple weeks away, on Aug. 20, 2014, at Harris-Stowe State University the first higher education response to the unrest took place. There was a symposium that was organized to bring together progressive elements of Black civic society to try and bring infrastructure to the change the movement called for. This symposium generated the formation of what would later be called the Ferguson Commission.

In the early discussions I privately informed key people I had no interest in serving on that entity when I realized it was developed to serve the interest of the business establishment. I was not alone in declining to serve. There are several prominent people I have had quiet conversations with who also declined because they had integrity.

3 days earlier on Aug. 17 the Civil Rights community tried to convene on the campus at the invitation of the youth chapter of the NAACP that was radicalized by events and participated the protest. 2 headline speakers were Judge Greg Mathis who ultimately in his rhetoric and actions was little more than a voice for the Obama Administration and was quietly dismissed by the organizers.
