Watching this play out again locally for the umphteenth time because most black activists and protesters prefer attention, and validation from the Dem Party/NPIC that comes as a result of abandoning our issues for performance, symbolic action, tokenism and chasing moral victories. THIS they prefer over black empowerment and liberation. White folks know this… they exploit/manipulate this and use it to misdirect our energy. That’s why this movement is out there fighting for everything except black empowerment and liberation.
