this is a horror.
this is a tragedy.
this is a reminder.
this is not a fashion statement.
it was to the white slave masters back in the day,
slave masters use to send these pics as christmas cards to their family members.
pregnant female slaves were hung and their stomachs were cut open to see who died first.
families of slaves would be forced to watch their relatives die slowly as they hung from the trees.
abel meeropol wrote the poem “strange fruit“,
which billie holiday sung originally in 1939,
was ( x about the lynching we endured ):
ye used the song on one of his past songs:
remember ^this one said slavery was a choice.
a foxholer sent me the following “fashion statement” the other day…

imagine wearing that shit to a job interview for a corporate job?
why is he skinnin’ and grinnin’ like this was a brilliant decision?
i hope he isn’t the brains behind this nonsense.
if he is the model for the fuckery,
i would have declined the offer.
a noose around your neck as a tie isn’t a badge of honor.
it’s a source of pain and a constant reminder of the lynching of black people,
then and even now.
( x the story of frank embree is the one of many stories )
some people truly continue to baffle me.
i know i’m not perfect but i couldn’t even imagine cosigning some shit like this.
Some white and black folks love living happily in their ignorance.
they say and do shit without giving proper thought,
but when they get backlash and a foot up the ass,
they’re confused as to why.
lowkey: when some white jackals say their freedom is being taken away by wearing a mask,
it reallllllllly bugs me.
it makes me want to throw paws tbh.
how dare THEY talk about freedom being taken away from anyone.
