This has been an interesting weekend to say the least.
I’m chilling when I hear news of a crazy protest in Charlottesville. I look to the Google machine and find that a bunch of white motherfuckers decided to go to Walmart, clear the outdoor section of all the Tiki torches and march into the streets to express their whiteness. These racists felt that their rights as white people were being violated and decided it was time to make a stand. Enough was enough, Tim and John Smith just wanted to be able to say racist shit without someone calling them out for it.
Judging by all the rage I saw in the streets of Charlottesville, you would think that that a teenager got gunned down by the police because they looked a certain way and the cop got scared.
You would think they’d be marching because they got tired of dealing with rules systematically designed to work against them.
You’d think they were still lamenting the fact that their ancestors got stolen away from their native countries 200 years ago, got stuffed on boats, shipped across the sea and were forced to do labor in order to further an economy that they wouldn’t reap the benefits from.
You’d think they were marching to express fear and disagreement of the election of a president who made it very clear that he would strip their rights and protections.
Nope, they’re out in these streets marching for nothing more than to express their whiteness.
They want to be free to not give a fuck what people think.
They want to be free to say and do all the racist shit their ancestors were allowed to do before Jim Crow laws were done away with.
You know those white guys who get all bitchy when you tell them that they can’t say “nigga” or the ones go get mad when you tell them that they can’t display that flag anymore? Those are the guys who cleared Wal-Mart’s outdoor section of all the tiki torches. So if you were planning on having a BBQ that day then take it up with those bratty racist guys who flooded the streets of Charlottesville.
It’s 2017 and we still have to deal with this shit. I would love to see these motherfuckers come to Boston. Bostonians do not fuck around. Just ask to two losers who decided to set a bomb off at a historic marathon.
I’ve just about lost all faith in humanity because of this shit. It’s a really sad day when racists are brave enough to come march in the streets of any city to express their hatred for change and tolerance. What I find even more troubling is that this is exactly how the Holocaust started.
For those who need a history lesson, some Austrian guy with one ball convinced himself that Aryans were the perfect race. After he got out of prison, he started a small campaign that consisted of spreading that message. It started slow but, it eventually caught on until it grew into a massive movement that would result in acts of segregation and eventually the deaths of over 11 million people, 6 million of which were Jewish.
It is often said that those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Clearly we haven’t learned a damn thing because we’re letting these guys march out in the streets. I’m not condoning violence, but we can no longer stand for this.
If you truly believe in equality for all, I implore all of you to take a stand against this bullshit. The last time a nation decided to do some shit like this, several countries banded together to bomb the shit out of it.
Thankfully it hasn’t gotten to mass genocide, so violence doesn’t have to sit on the table. I do ask that the next time you see someone being racist, FUCKING SAY SOMETHING. Hopefully we can all band together and remind these assholes that real human beings won’t stand for this shit.
