A Letter to my Home State after #Charlottesville

CW: Imagery of Charlottesville Attack
FUCK YOUR MONUMENTS. FUCK YOUR HERITAGE. AND FUCK YOUR NOSTALGIA.
blm
If you haven’t gotten it by now, let me break it down as clearly as I can…..
#MAGA for white people means and will always mean PERPETUAL LOSING as long as winning means taking the HUMAN rights of PEOPLE OF COLOR.
We have 152 years of evidence of this, and we can go over it again and again and again, OR you can just get it like you DIDN’T the first time… the second time… the third time… like dear God white America, I’m embarrassed for you……………….
AND if ur white and reading this with a light sigh, “oh she doesn’t mean me, I’m x, y, z whatever fragile bullshit you tell yourself to sleep at night”, I’m 1000% TALKING TO YOU! Your friends.. Your family members. I got em too, and in my closest quarters, so don’t act like this isn’t touching you!!!
FEEL THE WEIGHT OF THIS…
IF YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO FEEL, FEEL LIKE SHIT
CUS THAT’S WHAT IT IS AND WHAT IT WILL CONTINUE TO BE until we look at the way white supremacy has rotted the very foundation of our country, and rip out all it has decayed. Tell your white fam to stop waiting for America to be great again (which it wasn’t. ever.), and start working to make America UNITED for the very first time in our 400 year history.

WE CAN BE THE GENERATION. WE HAVE THE TOOLS. WE HAVE THE KNOWLEDGE. AND CLEARLY… CLEARLY… WE HAVE THE WILL!

 

Solidarity with all the siblings and allies on the ground in the US right now. My heart goes out to EVERYONE who has lost their lives to this fight. From across the sea, we are working over here too. We are working beyond the West. We are dedicated, and we won’t stop until the work is done.
