As a 52 yr old black woman, who also qualifies to tick off each miserable box of the “new majorities” categories-if I had just one thing to advise young adults of all colors and creeds to do in this country, it would be to drop this whole “Black Lives Matter” BS into the trash. Run from it. Close eyes and ears to it.
Immediately. Because all of our lives depend on this very thing.
I don’t care if every major corporation has printed up banners and set into motion thousands of “Black Lives” campaigns and laws. As far as anyone should be concerned, they are hypocrites and they are liars.
If they are not liars then their approval and assistance of those who have blatantly harassed us, punished us and hurt us, still leaves them in a very dark light indeed.
Their blatant refusals to abide by, and bullying of us concerning, the “laws” of “appropriate social conduct” can be seen and heard in countless ways each day.
This is only one example. A photo which would spell disaster for us, if ANY one of us dare even say the words “black” and “face” in the same breath..
Yet, Adobe as well as each of the major corporations are free to do and present what they want.
Year after year, day after day, forever beating us over the heads (hypothetically speaking of course) for even looking at certain foods to eat while they sit back belching and scratching their bloated bellies after hoovering the same food up through their own shriveled trunks.
As with the COVID prison sentences we were forced into.
Masks for us, none for them.
Us forbidden from honoring our loved ones at funerals, them free to flaunt and taunt at will as they bury their own in Teflon coated solemnity.
Us, now not allowed to meet potential mates freely nor easily anymore, while they are free to carry themselves to their resorts, dinners and whatever other Mt Olympus events they need to attend.
It is blatant hypocrisy. And it is criminally spiteful.
The hate. The deviousness. The leaked and leaking sarcasms.
The pushing and exaggeration of white on black crimes aired over and over again on top of the blatant “favoritism” that’s causing disruptions and fear amongst millions of vulnerable and young minds.
When it is wrong as can be, according to the equality and discrimination laws we once honored and is as much of a fire starter pointed in the direction of encouraging civil strife as can be.
It is easily seen in too many bitty and sloppy ways.
Like the Bilderberg declaration regarding their expressed opinions about “lower classes” and how we are to be dealt with.
Or the raw expressions of hateful superiority from individuals-one which we’ve legally been instructed to honor.
Even though the separation of state and church couldn’t have been made any more clear. Especially when these records drip with the worst hate speech to be publicly ignored, supported and protected within our land.
It can be seen in the CDC’s lack of urgency concerning the lives of countless black women who will suffer unprecedented rates of cancer and hormonal damages from the hair care products these “concerned” companies keep making money from…while not expending a single fraction of energy towards warning black women of the direct dangers.
One example would be (or could be) how Amazon has taken its time to digitally behead the majority of “us” on its site in the clothing departments. Aside from one or two exceptions.
If it doesn’t say anything about hypocrisy, it certainly can cause a stomach to sour each time they blast their loud and hollow enthusiasms re: the “supporting of black businesses” and those constantly run “Black Lives Matter” banner pop-ups…
For those types of expressions above are anything BUT “caring” and are nothing but embarrassingly transparent -no matter how much they twist their lips up over how “much smarter” they have always declared themselves to be.
(I am quite aware that he digital beheadings sound like a far stretch. However, it is a tactic that has been noted in earlier instances, involving broader reaching and older advertising.
This documentary was done in 2003. Since then, the foretold issues of pushing androgyny and other situations have already unfolded full blown within our society.
And instead of only females “losing their heads”, Amazon now encompasses both males and females in this childish sticking out of its hideous tongue.
Unless they’ve the nerve to lock down the entire clothing department ads in some sort of “scrub” attempt…one can easily find this all over the place)
As if a single thing out of them can or should be trusted after being caught taking photos of our homes.
Or after mass mailing unordered “mysterious” packages to countless numbers of us, with that god damned smirk and no return addresses printed on the boxes.
As if thousands of us didn’t shudder after we saw their unmarked vans come deliver our packages after their blatant “casing” behaviors of the unnecessary photo taking; leaving more than a few of us unable to shake the “outlandish” ideas of their abilities to murder us in our homes in another mass attack…without being stopped nor challenged for their current and many overt “clues”.
(That is, if the packages even arrived…if not broken, busted or delivered three months after Christmas and buried near a bush…nowhere near the two entryways used for ten years)
I trust that “Black Lives” matter to Adobe, Amazon and every single major corporation about as much as all of our lives matter to them in general…which is clearly not at all.
They will do as they have been doing, that’s been made perfectly clear to us. They will work their juvenile “opposite day” hoo joo and keep smiling (smirking) in our faces as our very “brightest” and “best” stand by, ready and willing to punish us heavily for daring to challenge the lies of “such noble causes”.
However, there’s no reason in the world why we can’t begin (or continue) to defuse the instigations they’ve set into place to divide us. Irritate us. Terrorize us. Within our individual homes and communities.
To wake up from this foul spell put over on us so openly and for so long.
For they do NOT believe for one stone minute that our lives matter…and NEVER have.
