Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.
My eyes are WIDE OPEN and I know what I see. I AM MAD! I’m not in the mood for any leaders or authorities of any kind, getting on national television, calling for calm and peace. We are under attack. Since the Zimmerman acquittal, there has been a Domino Effect in violence against Black males and people in America. It has barely been two weeks since the Rachel Dolezal mess, McKinney, Texas before that, and the Baltimore riots were just a few weeks ago.
This is beyond coincidence.
As a conscious woman who has been speaking out against the very issues that have been impacting the Black community ever since President Barack Obama was elected. It started with the Tea Party, then the birther issue, and one after another, the Republicans started talking in code to their mostly white base; and like clockwork, the attitudes and behaviors in whites became bolder and bolder. Not even fearing any kind of response as they directed their hate and fear, first, onto our POTUS; and now, on the Black community.
The worst type of Black on Black crime are for Black people to respond apathetically or not at all when any Black person is threatened.
President Obama’s perceived weakness and cowardice to speak on issues of race, racism, and the impact on Black people, have literally given white people an attitude of invincibility to commit acts of hatred on Black people randomly, and not expect to be held accountable. I HOLD HIM TOTALLY ACCOUNTABLE! And the U.S. Justice Department better start doing their damn job!
Apparently, there was a page on facebook in support for the shooter, Dylan Roof Storm in the Charleston, Massacre. A few of you here have reported the page. Yesterday, it was taken down.
I’m not in the mood right now for “peaceful protesting.” Our people are being persecuted. I’ll say it publicly: I have 0-Tolerance for Cowardice at this time.
In 1849. the Great Harriet Tubman escaped slavery, and for 11 years, she returned 19 times to the south to free slaves to the north and sometimes into Canada. Harriet was a brave woman. It was even stated that she had no tolerance for weakness; threatening even to shoot slaves that showed any form of cowardice. She is most noted for this quote, “I freed a thousand slaves I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”
If only they knew they were slaves.
And that’s where we are today. Many Black people still are psychologically attached to the sons and daughters of slave masters. Praying to a white Jesus that are prolific in many African American denominated churches; it’s a subliminal submission to admonish that if Jesus is white; then white people really should be worshiped. A sick irony and mental breakdown of consciousness of not only the truth of who Christ really was, as well as acknowledgement that there were no Europeans in the Bible.
NO MORE! There’s been a breach in the temple; we let the enemy in without a security check.
Conscious Black People, It’s time to do what needs to be done. We are the gatekeepers of consciousness and it is the responsibility of ALL BLACK PEOPLE to maintain spiritual order on this planet. The cowardice that has been tolerated; is no longer acceptable.
Get off your knees and FIGHT the enemy!
