Tired

Wednesday, September 21, 2016


Tired of seeing my people slaughtered on national television like it's part of some prime time line up. 


Tired of the fake deep injustice memes that follow after; temporary pacification.


Tired of the redundant op-ed pieces and interviews with minimal action to follow. 


Tired of the excuse of "states rights" under the guise of complacency. There was a time when slavery and Jim Crow were "states rights"; the federal powers intervened. We have an uninterested POTUS, a useless DOJ, and entirely too many people willing to allow them to be above reproach when called on this. 


Tired of PIGS getting paid vacation for their kills. Tired of them not being held accountable. 


Tired of the "do the work from within" crowd, while Black judges and Black prosecutors exonerate killer cops. 


TIRED OF PRAYING. 


SICK and Tired of Black people appealing to whites to see their humanity, and understand our plight. 


Tired of this shit still, from 7,000+ miles away. 


Tired of having to exist on this planet.

  4. I completely understand. I think it's important that we all find our outreach because mental health is a thing. I hate that this is happening.

  5. I agree and I feel the same way. This is very frustrating and no one seams to REALLY care. After someone gets killed, they wait until all the commotion dies down and people go back to living their lives.

  7. I am tired as well. It was exhausting to read this pieces as it reminds yet again of the harsh realities that we have to face every single day! You are not safe on the streets, you are not eve safe in your own home! and that is a very scary thought.

  9. Girl I feel you, I'm so tired. I don't understand. I want it to stop. I don't know what to do. I fear for my black man and black son.

  13. I'm tired of everything going on as well. I do believe there are things we can do to help make sure our voices are heard, so I plan on participating on events to raise awareness and dialogue to make sure a change comes. I'm praying as well, which gives me an internal peace that I think is very necessary in this world that we live in.

  14. It's hard to live in a country where you don't think you are valued. It's hard to go on and advocate for hope and justice when you don't think change is ever going to take place. It's hard, but I refuse to give up. I will keep fighting and advocating for my people until I physically cannot.
