If You're Not About Justice I Want Nothing To Do With You


If you're not outraged about police brutality against Black Americans then I want nothing to do with you.

Maybe that's blunt. But let me go further.

If you're not in recognition that Black people--and Black people in particular-- are being targeted by law enforcement then I want nothing to do with you.

If the word "thug" or "hoodlum" is in your vocabulary then I want nothing to do with you. If you believe there's ever a reason why lethal force needs to be used against an unarmed person then I want nothing to do with you. If you aren't about the chant "Black lives matter" then I want nothing to do with you.



I have no time to coddle people. And I'm certainly not going to debate my right to life in the United States. It's sick and disgusting that many people think I am willing or even emotionally capable of debating whether people who look like me should or should not be shot down by cops.

This is a civil rights issue. It's a human rights issue. And if you don't recognize that then I want nothing to do with you.

Circa 2012 I dealt with folks who wanted to argue with me about if Trayvon Martin deserved to die, if he deserved to be stalked and subsequently murdered in his own neighborhood. But no more.

We're not arguing over Mike Brown, Darrien Hunt, Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Akai Gurley, Tanesha Anderson, Rumain Brisbon... I don't need to continue.


It's a free country (at least for some of us). And a person has the right to be a racist. As I have the right to not deal with racists as an elective decision.

As it is the United States has sent a strong message that I have no right to my life and liberty if I'm at the mercy of a cop seeking blood. And after my death, I have no right to justice.

I charge genocide. And if you don't then I want nothing to do with you.

  2. Yes, girl! I have no patience for any kind of racism from any white people, anymore EVER. I simply refuse to mince words when it comes to racism and white supremacy. People need to be grown ups and call it what it is as opposed to equivocating it away. And my tolerance for willfully ignorant racist white people [or any brainwashed peon of any color who takes it upon themselves to enter a conversation JUST to DEFEND or MINIMIZE white supremacy] is at less than zero - meaning that I have absolutely NO tolerance for their bullshit. I refuse to tolerate racism or racialized misogyny at in time in my personal space, ever. I don’t give a FLYING FUCK about white approval, unless I’m at work and I’m getting PAID to put up with casually racist whites. So I refuse to let any racist, willfully ignorant white people into MY personal space on MY free time unless I'm getting paid for it.I don't HAVE to deal with callous, ignorant, and HATEFUL white sociopaths on MY free time unless they pay me. Period.
