As a black person hearing people compare black power to the KKK, I have a few words on TV matter.
Here’s the thing. Invoking Black Pride is us punching up at CENTURIES of (usually white) boots on our necks and celebrating our achievements.
Invoking “White Pride” usually means some heavy dangerous shit is going down and someone is going to get hurt, destroyed, or killed.
People who get nervous when the former comes up think we’re going to wake up in the morning and do the same shit they did to us—which is untrue. We don’t have a fucking death wish. They’re not going to listen to reason, not for a while.
So if someone is unreasonably paranoid when you voice your Black Pride… Watch your six. Don’t hide your pride by any means, but watch your damn six.
