To Black People: A few things on my mind

A few things on my mind:

If you are important to someone, they will learn about you instead of making assumptions about you. You won't have to remind them about who you are or what you want.

If you don't like men using the women's washroom, don't ask them to show their penises before they go in. Then you'll never know.

If someone goes out of their way to make you feel special, recognize that and cherish it. You never know when that will be gone.

Black people need to stop embracing ignorant behaviors because "that's who we are." So, you've given up trying to be better instead of what our great-grandparents and great-great grandparents were forced to be because the laws of their day kept them from receiving an education? When are we as a people going to stop embracing what's given to us and start creating for ourselves?

Street gangs used to stand for something and they used to stand together. They PROTECTED neighborhoods instead of destroying them. That is until someone whispered in their ear and started the seeds of discord (hmmmm... wonder who did that?). And today you are still too ignorant to realize that you don't own shit, you're contributing to the destruction of neighborhoods and ways of life, and if the man wanted you gone, they could do it tomorrow. They will burn down entire neighborhoods to get rid of you.

Stop trying to control other people's experiences. Everyone handles things in a different way. And no, this is not contrary to the "ignorant behaviors" comment I made before.

Respecting people's beliefs does not mean agreeing with them. I just means that you agree that they have a right to believe whatever they wish to believe.

Basic grammar, spelling, and punctuation is important, but only if you wish to make something much greater of yourself. If you don't wish to, please let me know so I can block you. Water seeks its own level.

I'm sure there will be more as the day wears on. If any of this offended you, good. It's time you started waking up.
