Take 5 minutes to watch this interview of Jesse Williams take on the Michael Dunn trial
If only I could be as polite and civil he was in the interview.
They not hearing you though Jessie. And the fact that she wants to note wealth as privilege. However, she doesn’t want to mention white privilege. These media shitheads make me so fucking sick.
Spare us the invocations of “black on black crime.” I will not respect the lie. I would rather be thought insane. The most mendacious phrase in the American language is “black on black crime,” which is uttered as though the same hands that drew red lines around the ghettoes of Chicago are not the same hands that drew red lines around the life of Jordan Davis, as though black people authored North Lawndale and policy does not exist. That which mandates the murder of our Hadiya Pendletons necessarily mandates the murder of Jordan Davis. I will not respect any difference. I will not respect the lie. I would rather be thought crazy.
I insist that the irrelevance of black life has been drilled into this country since its infancy, and shall not be extricated through the latest innovations in Negro Finishing School. I insist that racism is our heritage, that Thomas Jefferson’s genius is no more important than his plundering of the body of Sally Hemmings, that George Washington’s abdication is no more significant than his wild pursuit of Oney Judge, that the G.I Bill’s accolades are somehow inseparable from its racist heritage. I will not respect the lie. I insist that racism must be properly understood as an Intelligence, as a sentience, as a default setting to which, likely until the end of our days, we unerringly return.

This made me so upset.
Italians are racist as shit. So many black football players have to go through this. It’s disgusting.
My grandmother was of Italian and Mexican descent, but if they saw me they would probably cringe! And some of their blood runs though mine!
