So if you’re not up to date, twitter has a new trending topic #iftheygunnedmedown and black men and women are showing the medias portrayal of blacks. Here a few things I would like to point out
1.) white people, sorry, this hashtag is not for you. Black men are being murdered and this is not a time to make a mockery out of this.
Quick story: in my sociology class I took this spring, we were taking about racial profiling and our professor was Indian and she was talking about her experiences and what not.
This black boy in class raised his hand to say “I always get pulled over, I even got pulled over while I was walking!” The class was laughing and stuff.
Then this white boy raised his hand and said, “well, I got pulled over and they searched me one night”
The professor is like “what did you do?”
He’s like “I was speeding and ran a red light”
Bruh stop it. This is what I’m talking about white people trying to equate their stupidity with actual oppression.
