Renisha McBride is the latest Black person on a long list of extrajudicial killings by White cops or White vigilantes with structural power supporting them; a list that I couldn’t fit in a single tweet and a list that existed long before I was born. Painful. Tiring.
And for any Whites seeking to inflict more pain as a source of pleasure to mask the emptiness that the delusions fostered by White supremacy create, or bring up President Obama or drones to derail from what Black people experience here, or derail via the old lie that “nobody cares” about intraracial crime, read the post with her linked name and the links within it. Your opinions aren’t needed on this particular tweet.
Wishing her family a lot of kindness and strength right now.
