The era of black face puppets is over…
The era of black face puppets is over...
The era of the broken negro is over… Quit telling us what we can’t do. “Instead of telling me how something can’t happen, how about you tell me how it can? Also just because you don’t see how it can happen doesn’t mean it cannot. We operate on two different frequencies. In my world failure is not an option. In yours, any challenge is a reason to stop. So you can’t really advise me on anything. It’s arrogant to even presume to give me advice when you didn’t see how half the shit I’ve accomplished would happen. Failure is supposed to teach you, not stop you. You’re supposed to learn from it and keep going. I’m unwilling to quit. You quit when things “don’t feel right.” You’re not in my lane and that’s fine. But don’t talk to me about how to drive in the HOV lane from the slow lane. Stay in your lane while I keep carving mine. THINK SMART” – Safi Thomas
We are living in a post Ferguson world. Those who weren’t down, didn’t support or see it coming keep trying to define the narrative, anoint leaders/spokesnegros and have us living vicariously though tokens/symbols/celebrity while diminishing authentic grassroots voices like mine and the late Darren Seals and Erica Garner. The Ferguson Effect wasn’t about police officers being afraid to do their jobs, the Ferguson Effect was the spark for everything you see/seen happening, everything we experienced since… ripple effects from what we started down to demands for tangibles, Trump protests, NFL protest, even running black activists/protesters & progressives. All have roots in our movement.
