Sensitive Black boys fall through the cracks

howtobeterrell:

we dont speak about pain because thats not what any wants to hear. 

they want machismo. they want sports. they want fatherhood. they want bills paid..they want strength where there isnt any. 

when a black boy stares at the ground something GOT em! some emotion done come and grabbed hold of him..

“whats wrong?” they ask. 

Like he would tell them, everybody betrays their trust..everybody forsakes them. Crushed little black boys cant dance. cant swim. cant play..so they rob and steal. they sit on buses glancing out the window trying to keep pain down..

crushed little black boys DONT NEED FATHERS! THEY NEED LOVE, HUGS KISSES. REMINDERS THAT THEIR SELF WORTH AINT NOWHERE NEAR THEIR GENITALS.THEY NEED ENCOURAGEMENT. THEY NEED….THEY ARE NEEDY.. 

sensitive black boys dont exist because we turn them into monsters and then ask why theyre in pain.

Ayye I like Slacker's Playbook A lot. Did you produce Emotionless thoughts on your playlist??

Thanks! and no Emotionless thoughts is a song by the former Capital STEEZ. I’m not sure where he got the beat from.

Just your daily reminders:

  • Racists are a problem
  • White people are not
  • Homophobes are a problem
  • Straight people are not
  • Transphobes are a problem
  • Cis people are not
  • Sexists are a problem
  • Men are not

And most importantly,

  • Hating an innocent person solely because of their race, sexuality, or gender makes you a fucking asshole

Just some actual daily reminders:

  • All white people do racist things without being aware they are
  • All straight people do homophobic things without being aware that they are.
  • All Cis people do transphobic things without being aware that they are.
  • All men do sexist things without being aware that they are.
  • Saying things like ‘some men’, ‘some cis people’ absolves the blame of individuals and only seeks to comfort those with privilege and power.
  • When a post says ‘some X’, the X will always assume that they are not because THEY ARE NOT AWARE.

And most importantly,

  • It’s called metonymy, when anyone who is oppressed makes an exasperated statement like ‘i hate straight people’, they are substituting straight people for the concept of a system and a culture that teaches, incentives, and legitimizes homophobic acts and normalizes homophobic acts so that straight people constantly do honophobic things without realizing it and that’s really fucking annoying.

And just as important,

  • The concept of sjws dehumanizes marginalized people and categorizes them as an ‘angry and emotional’ stereotype and only adds to the oppression of marginalized people under the guise of being ‘fair’, while the only thing you are doing is cushioning privileged people from their own ignorance and privilege.

Seriously tumblr.I dont ever ask you guys for anything.But this is a time where we need your help.Please.Call. Email. Reblog. SOMETHING.________________*Edit.Due to the recent and sudden popularity of this post, I feel the need to go in depth a bit. This is a shorthand twitter post, so lets expound. People. We already know that this is not the man they want on the case. Here’s the thing. Governor Jay Nixon and the county refuse to remove him from the case. He has a historic pro police bias, including letting 2 cops off for shooting 20 rounds into a car with 2 unarmed Black men in it, killing them both. This pro police bias comes from McCulloch’s own father, a former cop, being killed by a black assailant years ago. Both his MOTHER and his BROTHER work in the police department. What’s even scarier, is that THIS MAN IS UP FOR INSTANT REELECTION THIS NOVEMBER, AS HE IS RUNNING UNOPPOSED. This shit is real folks.This is setting up to be like how Angela Corey purposely fucked up the Trayvon Martin case. Remember how she didnt arrest Zimmerman but could harass Melissa Alexander? So yeah. Let’s do the work and figure out what we can do to get rid of this man… or harass the fuck out of him until we get what we need. Which might not happen, but yeah.

Systematic, institutionalized racism is real folks. Heres your proof.
