A *Different* Kind of 9/11 Post: NEVER Forget

1801
“Never Forget”?
Ninjas, please. How about “Never Forget That As a Black Man You and Your Children Will Always Have to Wonder If You Will Be Victimized or Discriminated”.
You better teach your kids THAT ^^^ shit….
Teach them their history.
Teach them how to speak to authority as a Black man/woman/child.
Teach them that they must always have their guards up, and not to let that fact interfere with their relationships, personal and professional.
Teach them where our people came from, what our people can do, and that although they are EQUAL to all others, not everyone will see it that way… even those in positions of trust, like teachers, employers, doctors, judges or police. (Or their mates’ parents)
Teach them to always strive to be the best so that in order for someone to discount them or discriminate them–they will have to make such a thing *obvious*.
Teach them the one-drop rule, so even if they are racially¬† mixed, at any point they may still be “niggerized”. #realtalk
Teach them that always be on their best behavior, treat themselves and their counterparts with respect so that they never will be seen as inferior–and will never dishonor those who sacrificed so that they could act as equals.
Fuck a war. Trust me, the enemies of America have never called you a Nigger, and no matter what fools out here say… this ain’t your fight. But fighting on behalf of your country does NOT make you a traitor. Just don’t be surprised when, after returning from deployment, you are still treated as any other nigger off the street.
But enough about me…
Thanks for visiting my blog.
