Well if you have an internet connection, you wouldn’t have been able to miss the internet breaking from the story out of McKinney Texas in which ONCE AGAIN rogue psycho police officers misuse and abuse their power and take it out on Black teens – while a 110 pound bikini clad 14 year old Black girl gets manhandled, tossed to the ground, has her face plastered to the dirt/grass, hair pulled, and is subsequently SAT ON with an officer knees on her back all because she??? I’m not sure what she did. I guess being a young Black teenage girl is enough to get you literally brutalized by cops these days.
Look I’m gonna get right to it. This has been said time and time again by numerous enlightened BW bloggers. Well I’m going to say it again – while BW are all over social media caping and freedom fighting for the rights of rich celebrity White men who are turning themselves into women, and BM who wouldn’t spit on you if you caught fire there are very real issues affecting our young women that we need to be LASER FOCUSED on because it could be YOU or any loved one in the same situation in McKinney Texas amongst other places where BW are flung around like rag dolls by the police for simply being Black.
I don’t have time for Respectability Politics anymore in these cases. It is clear that you do not have to do much to be assaulted by cops these days if you are Black. And it’s NOT JUST BLACK MALES as we can see. All I can tell you once again is if you are a Black woman, simply do what police say to avoid getting brutalized. It can take you almost doing NOTHING but simply asking about your rights for them to react in savage manner these days.
If you feel your rights have been violated save it for later and get an attorney to file a complaint against the officer and police unit. Until America deals with this abhorrent police issue of abuse against Black women and Blacks this is the recommended ways in which to respond to obvious racist cops looking to use any reason to use force against you.
This is where I cannot understand why Black parents are not talking to their teens about how to act in these situations today! I mean at some point we need to teach our children AND GIRLS ESPECILALY to walk away and stop trying to reason with these maniacs. That is what they are. UNHINGED racist maniacs who see you as sub-human and have no regard for your well-being. SO why do young Black girls continue to think they can reason with these police officers who are already acting in an unhinged manner is simply because Black parents are NOT teaching their children how to react in these situations to avoid being brutalized.
Back to the topic….
If BW’s priorities had been straight the last couple of decades I’d highly doubt any police officer would be ready and willing to brutally assault our young girls so readily (even while being filmed). You will never see a young teenage White girl being treated this way because their COMMINITIES and mothers and fathers make sure the world knows how cherished they are! AND they will fight to the deaths for justice God Forbd any of their young teenage daughters be treated as this young girl had been by anyone including but not limited to police officers.
Yeah yeah I know BW can hang up the community and father calvary thing. But if BW had put as much effort onto making a statement that we value our lives and the lives of our daughters highly, people including police officers would be very careful about how they handled us because they know there would be hell to pay.
This is not to say there would not be cases of brutality against Black women and girls because clearly something is in the water causing all these racist psycho maniacs to join police forces across the country. But the statement would be clear that our young girls are to be handled and treated as such.
Until more and more BW GET IT, we will continue to be the literal punching bags in this country by everyone.
STOP CAPING for everyone else! It’s not going to get you any brownie points with the masses as a BW. It isn’t going to shift you to the top of the hierarchy by trying to prove you are down to fight for everyone’s causes. All it does is continue to make you look like society’s DOORMAT who will run and help any and everyone while your own backyard is in shambles.
If you see society jumping on a bandwagon of a PRIVLEDGED person who doesn’t need your help, support then JUST BE QUIET. You do not have to say anything. Silence is best. Let others fight their own damn battles for once because we Black women have a LOT of work to do to continue to make sure our civil rights as WOMEN and Black WOMEN are continuously improving.
It will not improve if you are fighting everyone else’s battles and trying to be “likable” to the masses by jumping on bandwagons that aint going to benefit you in any way whatsoever.
This McKinney case is YET another reminder that BW do not have the time to spend messing around in other more highly privileged people’s stuff. We have our own stuff to fix.
Please contact the McKinney police dept. and express your outrage at this incident.
I won’t hold my breathe to wait and see if any marches happen for this young girl, but I will say that I have seen AMPLE outrage from all genders and races in regards to this incident affecting the young girl.
This is a good sign at least that others are finally getting it. It’s getting to the point where I believe even some White people fear that they will be next and are calling for justice in these cases. They have reason to fear because eventually the police will move onto brutalizing them and their children if this country does not come together and fight this cancer that is POLICE BRUTALITY AND MISCONDUCT these days.
