Optics of Defeat

I did not care for any of the  Charleston coverage it was offensive observing Black Americans in that posture....I resented the absence of Black anger being articulated by Black activists in South Carolina.....I tired of Black folks in a prayer/surrender mode ..I tired of the impotency and optics of Black people looking passive and beaten down.....


I rejected the nonsense of prayer as being some miracle when prayer did nothing to save the lives of those when they were confronted by a depraved White killer fueled by the ongoing reality of racism in America....


Finally I tired of the obligatory White media patronizing coverage form the endless use of the same quotes and images of Black Americans and dead Black civil rights leaders

You are a resident of DETROIT right?

What about your present consciousness made you less offended about the mass shooting in your own city as compared to Charleston, 1000 miles away from you?

Search for suspects still on after 1 killed, 11 hurt in shooting on Detroit basketball court

Did this act in Detroit not make you "Self Angry" enough?
