We know white people hate us.

We know white people see us as inhuman.

We know white people love themselves way too much to fight for us.

We know white people want us either dead or gone.

We know white people are going to stay silent, even as someone’s mother, father, sister or brother may have been murdered today.

We know.

As I wrote this, it just came across my feed that someone died.

For the POC and allies who marched and fought today in Charlottesville, thank you. We will continue to fight.

To the person who died, your death will mean something.

That person who died, is white. Smearing people based on their race is wrong.
