If ever there was a time to make note of a very important social event… And this
occurs on the upcoming 4th and 5th of November… Black is Back Rally, march and conference in Washington, D.C., has arrived for the 8th year! If you think this is a year to skip out on, I ask you to please reconsider… Things have been escalating for for hundreds of years, but as we clearly see, things are getting even more increasingly out of control regarding hate crimes, racism and this government. So, any glimmer of hope a select few may have believed in should be more than clearly gone now (if it were ever even there.)
In my opinion it is more vital now than ever for social action and unity… SO! Below you will find all the information you need regarding the 8th Annual Black is Back Rally, March & Conference starting November 4th.
As a Latina with disgustingly, annoyingly, FRUSTRATINGLY, white skin I only wish I could trade in, I was glad to see there are other light / white skinned people in the Hispanic community who think along the same lines. Sadly, of course white privilege is given to hispanics of light or white skin. I don’t want it! But before I post my video, let me start this by saying what you best already know:
I WOULD GIVE UP THIS SICK ‘PRIVILEGE’ IN A HEARTBEAT IF I COULD!!! I do not see it as a good thing; until ALL of us have it, NONE of us should have it! The light/white skin tone of mine is the misfortune of my existence. But I do pose a question which is below the following video…
What fellow light / white skinned Hispanics feel about this curse of a ‘privilege.’ So… Do you deny it exists; do you abuse it like too many ‘caucasian’ people?
Whether you want to accept it or not; white privilege is real. White supremacy is a lie as “whites” does not mean a person is better than any other person; skin color alone does not mean any more than the size shoe you wear. Sadly, however, it is still an ongoing issue in racist America; built on lies and evil cruelty, still going forward with those same ‘ideals’ trying to brain wash as many as possible.
NEVER FORGET THIS TRUTH: being of European or Irish or whatever descent does NOT mean they are better. That is a force fed lie and it’s time we blow it out of the water with education on real history and culture; on what they tried to erase after stealing from the people there, too.
Admitting it exists leaves a sickening taste in your mouth to speak it, I know, but speaking it and being aware that it is going on and it is not okay! That you CAN do something, even if it won’t remove the unjustified and selective “privileges” given without any logical, emotional, intelligent, understandable, rational reason, at least you can take pride in knowing you are doing your part.
It’s time -far past time- the hispanic and the Black community unite fully and fully. No, I’m not limiting the unification to only us but it just seems like a natural and normal starting place once the communities of our own stop killing… Any and all colors or races should join in on this 100% acceptance and intolerance towards racists. I hope to see this come true one day; even if it isn’t all, I hope the majority….
Mizzou football team has joined the fight to address racism on campus.
The University of Missouri’s football team has joined students in their protest against University of Missouri President Tim Wolfe by boycotting all football games until he either resigns or is removed from office.
It began with Black graduate student Jonathan L. Butler, 25, who has gone on a hunger strike in his response in Wolfe’s reticence in addressing racial tension that escalated when a swastika scrawled in excrement was found on a dorm wall.
Butler said he is willing to die unless Wolfe leaves office, prompting the school’s chancellor R. Bowen Loftin to issue a statement voicing his concern for his health. With the Black football players adding their weight to the issue, the nation is finally paying attention.
