Those who studied the black liberation movement, the Civil Rights era or social movements in general already knew the play… they saw it coming. And warned. Those who didn’t were inticed by the lure of white validation. Surely they were special if these good white folks anointed them, propped them up, put them in position and financially backed them. Surely they were special if white folks made them the face, gave them makeovers and took them on tour…. They don’t parade you in front of the UN or take you to the White House unless you’re special, right? This is what they had folks cheering on the surface while beneath the surface they were raping, robbing and pillaging our movement, diverting money/resources and beginning the process of having our frontline abandon our battle to fight theirs. We lost momentum and never gained it back. #HowToKillAMovement101
