Call them what they are, Every time

  • If you’re sensitive to what I’m saying in this blog post, then you can always return to my regular uploaded poetry posts. My blog site is about not shying away from any subject matter. So…

I’m sure everyone has heard or read about the murder of Nia Wilson, an 18 year old girl who was killed by a deranged white man in Oakland California on July 22nd. Time and time again young black souls have been slain by white terrorists, and yes I said terrorists because that’s what they are. There is a misconception whenever the word terrorist is mentioned, the first thought is a Muslim person. Yes there have been an plethora of them over the years, but terrorism can come from all walks of life. From the slaves masters, to Nazis, Ku Klux Klan, etc… I point this all out because whenever a white terrorist commits a heinous act they are usual deemed as unhinged and have severe mental issues instead of calling them what them what they are, terrorists. Some of them may have conditions but that shouldn’t be excuses for their actions. Having said that, the images of slain young black souls are usually tarnished with demeaning images that fits to the “norm” of media outlets who perpetuate that these lives were anything but flourishing lives that were prematurely taken due to hatred. Sure they’ve made mistakes and had flaws, but to present that as what only represents them is disingenuous and disrespectful. The black community all over the nation has taken too many loses, but it seems that all sides are not learning anything from those losses. Black people unite but let’s do it right. With understanding comes progress to move forward to find the solution to complex issues. So from now on call them what they are every time…
