And I AM DONE! I am a hypocrite. Here I am infuriated by the MURDER of SANDRA BLAND. I am enraged by the injustices shadowing Garner, Martin, Brown, Rice and countless other faces and names we do not know. Yet, I will flat out laugh, chuckle and applaud the mistreatment of my fellow brethren by watching us verbally and physically assault, batter and beat one another in these wretched (ratchet is a tool) shows we call entertainment.
Pardon me for a moment but I lost my mind. I must have to even fathom considering perpetrating the filth in these television shows that are the opposite of Upliftment, Enlightenment, Godliness and Evolution. Not only did I watch it, I'd DVR it just in case I missed something. Well no more.
I will continue to speak out and stand up for the Sandra Bland(s) of the world. I will no longer closet and perpetrate disdain, self-hate and insecurity and cloak it like a wet velvet blanket over my brothers and sisters. I will not celebrate the ridicule of people on social media and other clandestine forums I've yet to discover. I will not denigrate you because we believe and see differently although I will swiftly, curiously and sometimes firmly correct your missteps, misinterpretations and perpetration on me and in respect to mine.
Most importantly I will love. I will love me and I will love you even if that means from a far.
Yes the tragedy in Sandra Bland has reached far. I'm prepared to take the lesson to the stratosphere.
Whatever it takes to wake up, #StayWoke!
