The cookout is cancelled.
Allies to black life must be willing to die for the Black Lives Matter movement
No cookout for 2020.
I mean the proverbial gathering with cousins and extended family.
That shit is over.
Too many of y’all inviting Karen and Chad based off one of their sexy Black Lives Matter posts.
Historically, we as the African diaspora in America have been so forgiving.
Black life after black life gets murdered in the street and home.
Fuck a barbecue.
There’s nothing to celebrate.
June 19, 1865, never solidified our freedom.
In recent weeks, black men were found hanging from trees.
Karen and Chad were nowhere to be found.
People do not protest for arrests.
The systemic racism in law enforcement, education, housing and healthcare simmers to a tipping point.
The NRA stands behind shooters as long as they are white.
Let the streets burn.
Confederate traitors lynching black people and murdering Union soldiers.
These are the allies.
Leaving trails of white carcasses to the struggle of black equality.
No cookout. No barbecue.
No stepping in the name of love.
America has never shown love to its native son.
