It’s been hard for me to gather my thoughts. But, our newest Ferguson post was old and getting full of replies.
It’s hard because it’s difficult to put into words the level of rage that I feel.
I keep on going back to the following pictures:
These were the pictures that were on my mind as I went to sleep.
The unimaginable pain that their child isn’t even worth a trial.
Not worth a trial.
The entire proceedings were a farce. An absolute farce. From beginning to end.
These White folks have been so used to killing Black people and being unchallenged by it, that they are actually offended that they are being challenged.
I have one that believes in voting, and I still believe in voting.
But, sometimes, people have made themselves unworthy of the vote.
Claire McCaskill and Jay Nixon are two such people.
Black folks have never been folks going for the unicorn. We’ve never had the luxury of finding the ‘perfect candidates’. We’ve never been on that tip.
But, when you get from your supposed allies is utter bullshyt, one must make a stand.
Who the phuck cares if the alternative is a Republican, when, in the basest of cases, your ”allies’ can’t stand for basic right?
Your ‘ allies’ can’t affirm your humanity.
Your ‘ allies’ can’t affirm your rights as a citizen.
And make no mistake, Claire McCaskill and Jay Nixon didn’t absolutely NOTHING to stand for the basic rights and humanity of Michael Brown and his parents. If they want to get elected further, they should do it without BLACK VOTES. There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON for any Black person to ever vote for them period.
I would never tell someone to not vote. But, you can pull a ballot and leave offices blank.
The Republican elected would be MORE HONEST than McCaskill and Nixon have been.
Phuck both of them with their mealy mouthed inaction, and support of that racist McCullough.
There are bare minimums that Black people should expect for their votes….
McCaskill and Nixon have failed that test.
