Black Black Lives Matter Detractors

You know how people complain that big things happen but smaller things should’ve been handled first? Like when they say that we can land a man on the moon but we can’t cure world hunger? Or why is it that we can have a 200 Gig memory card but can’t cure cancer? You do realize that those things aren’t mutually exclusive right? Like…the same people who do the one job don’t do the other. That’s like being mad that your mechanic can get fix your car but can’t fix your relationship with your spouse.

Such as it is with the Black Lives Matter haters. Most importantly, the BLACK Black Lives Matter haters. You guys rub me the wrong way and I’m judging you. The same argument I keep hearing is that black lives need to matter to the Black Lives Matter supporters and that black people need to stop killing black people before we worry about other people killing black people and…you sound dumb. Here’s the thing, are you having this argument with black murderers or are you having it with people you know or see fighting for equal rights? Me personally, I’ve never seen a Black Lives Matter supporter that was gang banging. I’ve only heard it from people who are concerned and NOT harming other black people with violence. When I hear or see people arguing with people who AREN’T killing others, I just think to myself that you’re arguing with the wrong people. When you tell someone who ISN’T harming another black person that they should stop talking about NOT HURTING BLACK PEOPLE because people who ARE hurting black people are black is tantamount to getting mad at an A student telling someone to study more because that persons brother skipped school. You realize those things aren’t mutually exclusive, right?

You guys are literally like the NRA in that somehow it’s NEVER a good time to talk about this issue. If a shooting occurs, it’s too soon afterwards to talk about gun control and if nothing is happening then why talk about it? You’re mad because you see black on black crime which is a cop-out because you never get mad at white on white crime and the fact that 80% of serial killers are white. Not once have I heard a black person say that whites need to work on stopping serial killers before they balance the deficit. That’s because it’s dumb to think those things run together or that the same people doing one are in charge of the other.

And All Lives Matter? No shit. We’re saying ours do, too. Again, we’re treated differently and the black Black Lives Matter haters aren’t acknowledging this. The cops are killing, harassing and harming the black people who aren’t a danger. When you say that blacks need to stop killing blacks, it’s not as if Tamir Rice, a 12 year old with a toy gun was actually murdering folks. It’s not like John Crawford, killed while walking with toys in a Walmart was a threat to his community. Or the kid who had 5 officers beat him to the ground for jaywalking. Please understand, THE COPS DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THESE PEOPLE OTHER THAN THAT THEY ARE BLACK. Even if they had done something beforehand THEY AREN’T DOING IT AT THE MOMENT THEY’RE CAUGHT BEING ROUGHED UP BY POLICE! That’s why we’re upset. They aren’t fucking with the black on black murderers. They’re fucking with Emmit Till and Amadu Diallo. They’re killing Sean Bell the day before his wedding and you guys are getting mad and calling people out for saying that this is fucked up because somewhere else, other people are responsible for the behavior of all.

Basically you’re supporting stereotypes. You’re saying that because there are black people who kill black people, cops are allowed to murder us with impunity and we can’t say anything, even though we’re not responsible. In that case, don’t listen to rap music or support Hip Hop. A culture that speaks about this kind of treatment with Dead Prez, Immortal Technique, Killer Mike and Talib Kweli. You obviously think they’re full of it so don’t tell me you support my culture. I also don’t want to hear you speak kindly about Malcolm X, Dr. King, Marcus Garvey or Fred Hampton, Jr. People who knew that Black Lives Mattered and tried to show the world. Don’t say anything positive about the Black Panthers. A movement created because of the unfair treatment of black people that supported their own and were taken down by COINTELPRO. A government agency designed to take down the Panthers but for some reason not the Ku Klux Klan.

So lastly, when are the police going to be accountable to you? We’re now seeing weekly beat-downs and killings by police to black people and you guys complain about the black on black crime and nothing else. Why aren’t you complaining about the cops harming your own people? Are you complicit? You think all blacks deserve it? There’s now, way more instances of that on the news than black on black or white on white crime and you still don’t see it’s a problem? You realize that you’re allowed to speak up about the injustice of the so-called protectors doing damage to your community BEFORE we fix every other issue we have, right? Those things aren’t mutually exclusive.
