there is a heavy conversation that is brewing within the black community.
the other day,
i was asked to attend ^that room above on clubhouse.
it seems like after the mass shooting in atlanta,
the asian community was allegedly asking black folks to stand in alliance with them against white supremacy.
something that they have benefitted from tbh.
the answer from all the black folk on clubhouse,
and a majority of those i know,
have all said..
the black community isn’t going to celebrate innocent lives that were lost in a heinous crime,
but the main reasoning is how silent many of them were during our own injustices.
not only that,
some of them have also exhibited racism towards us.
i can name the number of horror stories i’ve heard of racism with black people in asian ran stores.
as much as i like lisa from “black pink“,
it’s no secret that many k-pop acts cosplay in black drag.
two wrongs don’t make a right,
but black folks are fed up.
we are tired of fighting for everyone and getting scraps in return.
our fights have benefitted many other races and we still get the shit end of the stick.
i don’t blame many of us for sitting this fight out tbh.
why didn’t they ask the latin community to fight with them?
the jewish community didn’t ask for any alliances when white hyenas were tormenting them.
black folks might be learning to mind our business when it doesn’t serve us.
who is to say we stand with them and nothing changes after?
they are getting a ton of support so do they even need the black community?
so i had to ask the foxhole…
Are black folks wrong in not pullin’ up for the Asian community?
lowkey: after being in that room and this one…
i learned that hateful white people have literally caused this confusion between all the minority groups.
they need to be held accountable.
