Bearing witness to the lynching of Jordan Neely in New York City.
I have no words. Other than “Thank you, Frederick.”
We coexist in 2 universes- one where everyone pretends and lies about the greatness of the US, and the other a blood-filled universe of genocide, lynchings, cold-blooded murder of the “ others”- be it gay, black, or our children with their crayons.
WOW. Brilliant, deep piece. No words, only complete solidarity.
“Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
Which is why I will keep demanding justice for Black people. Oh god how I wish I had been on that subway to do something. Anything other than the depraved indifference demonstrated by the people in the video. I am a mother of sons. Jordan Neely was also someone's son and had a mama.
Wow, thank you this. That was an incredible read.
the bottom line: those people that talk about being aware, and being "woke" have never been that. They were never anything of the kind.
Wow. Powerful truthful and painful.
I’m coming back to say that this is far and away one of the best pieces I have ever read in my life. I posted it with an urgent message on my very small Facebook network. Please share.
Bro give me a break. If the races were reversed your response would be “FAFO”
