I am done with this planet. Somebody kill me.
An “unidentified entrepreneur” is trying to profit off of the Trayvon Martin tragedy by selling shooting range targets inspired by the slain 17 year-old. The target is reportedly shaped like a hoodie and features cross hairs on the front. A bag of skittles are tucked into the pocket, and the left hand holds a can of iced tea. As I’m sure you’ll recall, these were the only items Trayvon Martin was “armed” with when he was gunned down by George Zimmerman on February 26th of this year. The seller of the targets has made it very clear that although his aim is to make a buck from the tragedy, his sympathies are with George Zimmerman. From WTSP: “According to an advertisement for the targets that had been posted on a popular firearms auction website, the sellers stated they ‘support Zimmerman and believe he is innocent and that he shot a thug.’ (via Trayvon Martin-Inspired Shooting Range Targets Sold Online?!)
Fuck it. I’m done. I am fucking done.
Seems so underrated these days.
But you know what’s more underrated than reading? Comprehension.
I mean, as black people in America, we want to talk intelligently with people who wants to understand, but they got this thing called “guilt”.
Now, we are not saying “YA GUILTY!” we’re trying to say “ease up. This is how we see it. There’s racism within the structure of the American system. You must understand this simple concept in order to really know what’s what.”
But, I think all white people hear “GUILTY, YA SALTINE CRACKER!” It’s simple… read… let it marinate, then respond. So simple at times. I read a lot of things, and respond to it in a calm matter. But so many people wanna skip things you mention and hear themselves talk.
We’re not saying it’s YOUR FAULT that the system got this way. We’re saying it’s YOUR FAULT for keeping the system this way. It’s like no matter how hard we try, you defend yourselves. So, after about 400+ times (years), we sorta give up… and now white people wanna pay attention?
I could say something like “I don’t think taxes on income is fair”. I wanna talk about subjects like that. What y’all wanna talk about? “Why can’t I call you nigga?” Seriously?
