There’s a consequence when movements are co-opted and commodified. The injustices continue to happen.

DO NOT come over here caping for BLM, Deray, nonprofits, ‘prominent’ protesters, Nike or Kaep. Miss me with “They increased awareness”. They didn’t increase awareness, the issue was already international news… we were already international news, that’s how they found out about us. We were in the streets weeks before BLM, Deray and nonprofits touched down and had been fighting this battle years before Kaep took a knee. Want to talk about increasing awareness? Increase awareness about that…. or the exploitation of the murder of Mike Brown or hijacking of Ferguson… the murder of Darren Seals or where millions raised in the name of Ferguson that were diverted to BLM and nonprofits went.
The battle isn’t simply external. It is also internal. There are enemies within, people you look up to, admire, support and live vicariously though… people who traded justice for personal come ups. People who not only sided with, but became the opposition the minute they got a seat at the table. People who get paid to lie, deceive and spread false narratives…People who made careers jumping from issue to issue, tragedy to tragedy. People Darren Seals was murdered while trying to expose.
