It seems like every corner we turn, we see folks in the community, prioritizing they type of WAR, they need to be aggressive for.
Yes..WARS shouldn’t happen but will continue to happen because people LOVE power and control. Innocent lives will continue to be lost because no one gives a shit, since it’s not their family in harms way.
We see Black folks prioritizing which war they should partake in and which they should have on standby. If we can get actual data on which war continues to be ON HOLD, and far from a resolution, we can almost be certain that the WAR AGAINST THE BLACK COMMUNITY holds that top data spot of…CONTINUANCE.
Black folks know that we have always and continue to have a disadvantage in society AND every where we go, internationally. Yet, we show little to no effort in being aggressive towards ending THE WAR AGAINST US.
We show major support for issues that doesn’t concern us such as changing profile image to a flag in support of a specific country, jumping on the bandwagon of anti-Asian hate, fighting for the rights of other cultures when our community is struggling, allowing “other” individuals or groups to make derogatory comments about us, battling with your brothers and sisters because they’re from a different continent, supporting illegal border crossers when Haitian people are getting the raw end of the stick…the list goes on.
If we took all the effort placed for nonsensical issues that has nothing to do with us and redirect it back towards growth and development of the Black community as a whole, we would be in a WAY better position that where we are at currently.
The WAR in Ukraine is none of our business. It does nothing for us. It does not take us out from our deteriorating situation. It does not sympathize with our problems. It does not change the heart and minds of racists.
It does not economically sustain us. It does not give us a political advantage. It does not bring hope to our community. It does not bring Justice to our love ones. It does not stop genocide against the black community. It does not stabilize our foundation. It does NOT bring the world together.
IN ALL, it does not matter because everyone comes together ONLY when there’s tragedy but when that tragedy is over, it’s back to business, destroying what’s left of the Black community through politics, medical, education, technological etc..
Be smart. Every fight is NOT our fight.
