i’m gonna say a controversial statement:
Not all white folks are evil.
not all white folks want to see the destruction of blacks.
many realize their privilege and use it when fighting for equality.
there was a story of how marilyn monroe helped ella fitzgerald book a particular club gig.
she called the owners and told them to hire ella for a week and she’d sit front row every night.

jane fonda is out here doing her thing with her privilege.
“Because we’re white, we have had privilege. Even the poorest of us have had privilege. We need to recognize that, and we have to understand what it is that keeps racism in place: the policies, redlining, banking policies, mortgage policies.” — @JaneFonda pic.twitter.com/HcQmihaF3v

she appeared on “the view” today and had joy behar stuttering.
jane was asked about defunding the police,
where joy thinks is problematic,
a couple years ago,
there was an article that was written about a powerful white hyena who was moonlighting as a movie mogul.
it spoke about how he would use his power to make actresses do unspeakable things for roles in his movies.
even though one black actress spoke out,
it was the majority of a-list white actresses that helped make his disgusting behavior go viral.
that once powerful hyena was brought down to the pits of hell and the #metoo movement was born.
the end result is he’s powerless,
sitting in a wheelchair at rikers,
while sexual harassment was highlighted in the entertainment industry and corporate.
it’s no secret that black people have a lot to endure a lot within those spaces.
when we finally make it to a company that is “for us; by us”,
you often feel like a refugee coming into a new world.
the first few days or weeks can be absolutely amazing,
but it’s a whole different story once the honeymoon phase is over.
i was engrossed in an article i was reading yesterday by “black female anonymous” on “medium”.
it was a bombshell about what black vixens allegedly go through working at essence magazine…
some of ya’ll don’t believe nascar wolf,
recent tango with racism.
so at the beginning of this month,
bubba proudly wore a shirt in support of “black lives matter”:

and even decked out his car in “blm” greatness as well:
someone couldn’t contain their vile behavior because bubba found a noose in his car stall.
he addressed it on his ig with a statement…

straight black males have this notion that “blm” is only about black males.
i started to notice that before folks started to say breonna taylor’s name.
(ex?) porn wolf,
isn’t happy about sharing blm with gay pride month.
this is what is put in his ig stories that a foxholer sent to me…

after scrolling through my twitter timeline,
looking at friends ig stories in protest,
and seeing all frustration within the black community,
i just laid on my couch for about 20 minutes staring out the window.
things are so horrible right now.
All this racism
Black lives being taken
Unemployment at an all time high
The President doing absolutely nothing but just ranting
…and then my own personal life and the issues going on with mi.
it’s like i have no words at this moment about it all.
this is all i could muster up…
both so handsome and gone too soon.
you would think folks would be more emphatic during this murderous pandemic.
you’d think people would give a fuck about human life,
as the rona is showing how easy it can be taken away.
the last thing i’d ever be fonting about right now is black lives being lost.
ahmaud arbery and sean reed are the latest in senseless murders…
