Fam, we gotta stop being so emotional and reactionary… Start being strategic and thinking things through. Prepare for the other shoe to drop. And I promise the other shoe is gonna drop.
We get so caught up in personality, in cheering… in confusing winning the battle with winning the war… in celebrating, stunting and and walking around with our social media chests stuck out that we never see it coming.
While we’re celebrating and thumbing our noses, the opposition has already moved on. They are well equipped. They have think tanks, elected leaders, unlimited resources, the law, law enforcement and the judicial/municipal process on their side.
We have a coupla new black faces that ultimately fall under their authority, jurisdiction or rule. Saw how they stripped power from Tishaura Jones… it didn’t matter what her predecessor did or the powers her predecessor had. You saw how they did it. Saw how they rescinded minimum wage and the few gains made after the Ferguson uprising. Memba cheering civilian oversight? Today the phrase is barely uttered. Our response? Crickets.
They are already implementing plans B, C and D… and they’re not stunting or boasting about it on social media.
Our side is acting like we already won.
