Systemic Racism

“Systemic Racism Kills….LITERALLY. DAILY.” -Bree Newsome

Black History: Special Delivery!!

Another powerful quote from a SHEro on the frontlines Bree Newsome!

Systemic racism kills. Literally. Daily. This is why I have no space for folks who try to reduce the issue of racism to a mere “culture war”, as though racism is just a bad idea held by otherwise decent people & not a brutal system that deprives people of humanity

I Will Survive?……Disabling The Drive To “THRIVE”

Black History:  Special Delivery!!

I WILL SURVIVE

DISABLING THE DRIVE TO “THRIVE”

 Systemic change is UNPOPULAR because it is UNPROFITABLE.

It is difficult to get to the ROOT of the problem when there are systems, institutions, and individuals who profit from the FRUIT of the problem.

Oppression runs largely (but not entirely) unopposed in its pursuit to disable the “THRIVE” reflex of the oppressed.

In fact, there are even instances when the OPPRESSED align with their oppressors; blindly accepting the lie that success can only be achieved by dependency upon the oppressor .

Survival” skills are administered by the oppressor in small yet lethal doses to the OPPRESSED. Immunized and inoculated against THRIVING; survival is equated with success.

Eyes wide-shut, WE seem oblivious to the parade of professionals and programs that THRIVE (at our expense) while we merely SURVIVE.
