Lessons from Ferguson…
“Our movement was never shits and giggles, tweets or hashtags. We didn’t engage in symbolic action… Politics/exploiting our votes came into the equation when BLM and nonprofits touched down.
We had the establishment against the ropes, we saw the fear in their eyes… we were unwavering which is why we were undermined with assistance from our own… damn near that whole frontline, many of the people y’all big up…. the ‘prominent’ protesters selected to be spokespeople, BLM mascots, to give people like Deray and Charles Wade credibility, traitors who allowed themselves to be black faces of large white nonprofits and black clergy who jumped out in front of the cameras in the attempt to get their MLK on and whore themselves out to the NPIC… Then came the celebrity actorvists.
That is how what we started went from this… to kneeling. From fighting back to voting. And how they got you to believe what was revolutionary was reactionary and what was reactionary was revolutionary.”
We are worst off today. All that energy and hundreds of millions of dollars squandered. The Dem Party, NPIC, BLM, Deray and all the supporting actors? Completely missing in action.
