The political nativity and inexperience of black people doesn’t just make us targets for exploitation by the establishment, but our own.. in many cases the very people who claim to be ‘changing the system from within’ and fighting on our behalf.

Random thoughts… thinking about all the times I got kicked off Facebook since Ferguson… wasn’t by establishment folks. Wasn’t by law enforcement… but by black people… movement leaders and ‘prominent’ protesters. My crime? Telling the truth, pointing out opportunism and exploitation by the very same people. Folks who sacrificed justice, historical truth and our collective progress for a personal comeuppance. Folks who would march black people 10 steps backwards so they could move one step forward. These people exist throughout the movement, elevated to black faces in high places where they sell us all out on a daily. They justify it by telling themselves white folks validated them, they must be doing something right. The rest of us simply ‘don’t get it’, are homophobic, patriarchic or jealous aka ‘intersectional talking points’. They parrot that. Soon as they get in position, they sacrifice our struggle to push the very neoliberal agenda that put in this position. And got the nerve to call this ‘woke’.

A wake up call for those who felt sorry for her… Again, not new, the Trumps are just more open and honest about it. They’re not even gonna pretend.
