Sick and tired

Yeah, I’m sick and tired of the shenanigans.

I’m professionally trained to assess multiple sides of any situation. And because of my experience, I also know that most of the time, there is usually only “one” truth after all the facts of a given situation are gathered.

I said facts.

Not fake news, fake facts or what you think is true.

Facts that reflect truth.

The truth is that when you are a Black, Indigenous, a person of color or not from an affluent background, you often find yourself being treated differently by those who don’t want to lose the power and privilege over you – power and privilege oftentimes acquired by standing on the heads (and sometimes necks) of those who are often factored out of important equations.

And the truth is that yesterday’s incident was a sterling example of the fact that justice is not always equal and that double standards exist.

Deux poids deux mesures.

I’m not going to repeat what I said in this post .

If you are new to my space, just know that with me, any conversation that includes a sentence like, “I don’t support him but…” will be shut down hard before the “b” in “but” can be uttered.

Then, I will tell you why and cut you loose – it’s that simple.

Yeah, sorry, not sorry.

Rant over. Time to get back to more positive fiction writing things…:)

Your thoughts?

  1. The sad truth is…we as people of color understand this country and its dark history of taking by violence what it wants. What happened yesterday was so despicable and we still have Fox News trying to spin this as ANTIFA. The madness will not stop until people are held accountable for what leaves their lips. So aggravating. And yes, I agree with the other poster, “This planet is too ghetto.”
