I’m for real. Pray for me. I can’t watch the news nor talk with people about this. To be honest. Over the past couple of weeks it has been extremely difficult to comment, write, or blog about what’s going on in the media surrounding the Presidential election. The fear-mongering and thingification (objectification) of black bodies has been quite lamentable for me. The demon of racial terrorism has just one horn showing up by implying this or that. Mista Charlie is on the rise…and he is as a roaring lion seeking those may devour with the rhetoric of fear and terror.
And the really sad thing is that I can’t talk about it with some folks because they are totally insensitive to the historical present/past and lack the necessary cultural tools to understand black anger in the face of blatant disrespect of black bodies.
Forgive me my sins as forgive others of their sins.
