White Privilege Made Me Do It

 

I wasn’t going to write about this, but…….

Over the past week, I’ve listened to journalists and read stories concerning the rioters that stormed the Capitol. The wide variety of emotions that I’ve experienced have now left me angry. The images of white privilege are blasted all over my television screen and embedded in my brain. My blood boils every time I see a window being smashed and a rioter climbing their way through. As they climbed and defaced a government building, they were insisting that the Capitol was theirs. As if their taxpayer dollars alone pay the cost.

Their white privilege leads them to believe that their actions would be justified because they were angry. The person they voted for lost in a FAIR election. With a lack of evidence, they insist it was a fraudulent election. I mean, how could a now twice impeached bafoon possibly lose?

Sarcasm of course

What is white privilege, you ask? This picture should sum it up for you.

 

Because of white privilege, The nobodies beat officers with OUR American flag. The flag that they claim to love. And beating the Blue Lives that they claim to love. They proclaim that BLUE LIVES MATTER… that is until they no longer do.

They are the same nobodies that suggested the black athletes that kneeled before the flag was unpatriotic. And in the words of the orange clown, they are “Sons of a bitches”. But I ask, what’s unpatriotic, kneeling before the flag in hopes to bring awareness to lives being stolen or beating officers with the flag?

Last night CNN showed an interview of a few of the police officers that were beaten by the terrorist. Their individual retelling of the horror story brought chills to my soul and tore at my heart.

Officer Hodges was one of the officers attacked. He was stripped from his baton by a rioter and felt them pulling at his gun while they beat him. He stated that one of the rioters said, “We’ve supported you through all this BLACK LIVES MATTER STUFF,” as if that made them one of the same and instant friends. The audacity to think you can beat officers that risk their lives every day by protecting and serving you but now expect them to stand and fight with you.

An untrained, uneducated deplorable nothing!

The athletes kneeled because black men and women were being KILLED due to who we are. Being questioned and framed because of what we look like. Children being raised by a single parent now because they were forced to bury their other parent. So NO, it’s not “STUFF.” These are issues that are destroying brown and black folks every day!

How dare anyone compare Black Lives Matter to these pathetic terrorists.

I wasn’t going to write about this, but white privilege made me do it.

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
