Fam… people talk a lot about staying on code. Yes, we should have a code, but staying on code doesn’t mean not pressuring elected leaders, movement leaders or holding them accountable. It doesn’t mean turning a blind eye to those who exploit black deaths, pain and suffering. Staying on code isn’t a pass for grant hustling clergy and nonprofits or showing blind allegiance to the Democratic Party. It is not supporting any black or blue.
The only code required is supporting those who speak to and work towards the interest of black people and our communities… first. Other groups do it. White people do it, that’s the whole concept behind America First and MAGA. The very reason we must is because others have done so and continue to do so at our expense… and for our own survival.
Don’t let anyone guilt you into putting somebody else’s agenda before your own.
