#2021. Look at us surviving. Despite all the predictions of gloom & doom and the sky is falling we survived Trump, we survived COVID, we survived harsh truth being exposed and attempts by the left to deceive and mislead. We are still standing, we are not defeated and our best days are still ahead.
We’re entering the new year facing the same old problems, following the same old leadership, BLM and nonprofits… the worst our situation, the greater the comeuppance, positioning and grants. Look at all the new and/or elevated players since we took to the streets in 2014. Almost a decade later, an entire movement built off the commodification of black trauma… billions raised. We’re not only still being gunned down in the streets by police, we may also subjected to rule by the very man who wrote the book in ‘by the book’.
The good news? More of us are waking up and seeing the play, the bigger picture, and what this means for us beyond Trump.
Yes, we were bamboozled.
But now the illusion is shattered.
