Hello Comrades! It’s me again. I know, I know, it’s been a while since y’all heard from me. For those of y’all who didn’t know, about 8 months ago, due to the pandemic, my now 8 year old daughter passed away. I’ve been battled depression and punched down suicidal thoughts. I literally went to the point of pulling out my hair. Literally! I’m still healing, but I’m back!
Since I’ve been gone I’ve done some serious thinking. What the fuck is wrong with this world? Our so-called worldis crumbling I our hands, yet all we do is stare at it happening. We need to put our heads together and heal these wounds. I can’t be the only one thinking this.
I’ve been thinking – Red, white and blue is supposed to mean “freedom”, except when it’s flashing behind you. Cops are supposed to be trusted because their motto is to “protect and serve”, yet unarmd black men are being killed, indigenous people targeted. Take your damn knees off our necks. We Can’t Breathe! There’s so much hatred and racism out there. I grew in a white supremacist household. It took me a long time to realise that, at the end of the day, we are all human.
I’ve been thinking – There’s so many repeat offenders, yet no rehabilitation. This is really legal modern-day slavery. No wonder the prison system is always packed. So let me get this right… you want to keep me locked up for 15 years, slave in the laundry department folding half-washed clothes for no pay and release me with only $100 and a bus pass to whatever town in Texas I want? You call that rehabilitation? I call it bullshit. Get your knee off our necks. We Can’t Breathe!
I’ve been thinking – that we, in solidarity, need to come together and do more thinking for a better community, a better society, a better world.
