I’m always annoyed about why black people have to bear the brunt of everyone else’s contempt. If we are not totally understanding and smiling, suddenly we’re demons.

-Toni Morrison

 


 

Me too, Toni. Me too. Yet there are crickets or we’re told to shut up when we complain of our constant mistreatment.

When did we take on the weighty role of the scapegoat who doesn’t have the right to feel, disagree, have a bad day or simply be? And why? [rhetoric, but you’re welcome to answer]

  1. Well then, I must be the worst kind of demon because I am certainly not ‘Ms. Sunshine’, not at all and who don’t know that by now is dead and planted.

    Nidotopianwarrior is right! They are afraid of us and I wish they had even more reason to be. That is exactly why the ‘whites’ invented drones. It is because they are scared shitless when faced with actual confrontation. They will never engage a Black man or woman in hand-to-hand combat without being strapped because we would whoop their ass eight ways to Sunday and send them crying to their mama!
