Oh God. This was brilliant. You are awesome. Yes they still want to deport you. They want to deport me and I can trace my ancestry back to the late 1800s — house negroes on a Kentucky tobacco plantation.
It doesn’t matter that they built the damn country on our backs, after they stole it from all the Indians — most of whom they murdered.
It doesn’t even matter that- me and them- WE FAMILY!
Oh God they hate to discuss that. That’s cool, cause unlike them bougie black Jeffersonians, I hate to discuss it too.
Black descendants of Thomas Jefferson! Oh for the love of God! This drives white supremacists mad, cause they would love to claim such a lineage, but can’t.
If I they could deport black people back to Africa-believe me-it’s been considered despite the fact that we have been here for centuries- the black Jeffersonians would be on the top of that list, courtesy of white Jeffersonians.
They refuse to acknowledge the vast array of atrocities committed against their own family members. You’re nuts if you think that they care for any atrocities committed against precious brown Muslim you.
My family been at this game for a few centuries…so I feel compelled to school the newcomers to this madness.
There are millions of black descendants related to all those f@ckers. Do you see how they treat us? I could literally be related to Mike Pence or Steve Bannon (and not Thomas Jefferson, no I got this stuff making feeling that my personal heritage is more along those kinds of sicko lines.)
It is possible and it makes me want to vomit. Things could be worse. At least you are not blood related to your heinous oppressors.
I am so sorry. I am so sorry. I am so sorry.
I am so sorry this happened to you. Keep your head up! Keep your posts up! Keep doing it for the kids and the hoods — east coast, west coast and worldwide! They deserve better. You and I know it!
Again, I am so deeply and profoundly sorry. Let me just say, I voted! I always do, so why the f@ck do I feel like this is my fault? I did everything that I could do. Didn’t I? I’m not one of those people who lazily opens the doors for Nazis- am I? What more could I have done?
I’m being very white right now — and I’m not even white! Very light skinned though. Too much European DNA to play jacks or jump double-Dutch.
I walked up to a random lady in a hijab eating her lunch at Panera and I said “I’m sorry.”
I don’t know. It was a day after the election and I felt utterly compelled to say this to her. Confused, she asked, “why are you sorry?”
I replied, “I’m sorry about what this country has done to me, and I’m sorry I’m letting them do it to you too.”
And she said, “Well, then, I’m sorry for the both of us.”
This is about the state of things, my brother.
We’ve got some sad, sorry days ahead if we don’t vibrate out. (Vibrating out, it is a thing I’m trying to get people to do, for our safety, our mental health, our sanity we are hanging on to by a strand.)
I am throwing a digital black power fist your way! Oh wait…all I got is hands up, don’t shoot.

Whatever happened to peace?
PEACE. PEACE. PEACE.
