Bystanders Wake Up and Recognize #AltonSterling #PhilandoCastile
When I 1st heard Jesse Williams acceptance speech for BET’s Humanitarian award. I couldn’t help but focus on the following….
And let’s get a couple things straight, just a little sidenote – the burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander.That’s not our job, alright – stop with all that. If you have a critique for the resistance, for our resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. If you have no interest, if you have no interest in equal rights for black people then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down. – Jesse Williams
Every time there’s a video released of police brutality or a shooting, there is always someone that needs an explanation of why this is a problem. Over the past year or 2, I have found myself trying to be understanding and taking the time to explain, but after watching Alton Sterling and Philando Castile being gunned down… I just can’t do it anymore
If you can’t see there is something seriously wrong with what is going down in America after watching these latest videos; then that is on you!
And if you answer to all of this is just comply with the police… As Mr Williams said, “SIT DOWN!”
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
