like the foxhole,
always has a way of making me see another side of things.
if i didn’t,
i’d always be ignorant.
we were having a discussion about the whole ( x evan klinger ) situation today.
i believed the snow jackal was wrong.
she believed both were wrong.
this is what she said…
“just because one person’s weight is 300 pounds,
and another is 500 pounds,
doesn’t mean one is less fat.
she called him a derogatory statement first.
his was way out of line,
but she shouldn’t have addressed him by his race.
what if she didn’t react the way she did?
would he have responded to her?”
she also went on to say we as blacks need to stop doing “that”.
“that” being singling out every white because a few happen to be assholes.
she posed a question to me:
“i want you to think about this for a second.
think about all the things a snow jackal has done negatively to you.
but all the things that happen at your jobs.
liar liar is black and she was a complete bitch.
the vp’s assistant is white and she still speaks highly of you.
so now think about all the things black jackals have done to you.
it’s the same thing…”
she is right.
i have had my own fuck me over just as a snow jackal.
i’m sure i’ve said “that’s fucked up” when it’s done to me by my own,
but when a snow jackal does it,
i’m ready to call the entire race out.
“grimy is grimy.
blacks can be grimy.
whites can be grimy.
hispanics can be grimy.
asians and indians.
there are grimy jackals and hyenas in all races,
including our own people.
this is how racism keeps going.
when we don’t address individuals for their ignorance than the whole race.”
well she told me,
i don’t want to live a life where i’m always on edge.
a dumb ass is a dumb ass,
doesn’t matter what race they are…
lowkey: i also asked her thoughts on that “all lives matter”…
“black lives matter is and will always be a thing.
there are those who use their positions in power to harm others.
others being black people.
there is no all lives matter when someone of color is dead by a police officer.”
we share the same stance.
