I’m at the point where I could give a crap about the next crisis for the Democratic Party or while we lament about Donald Trump winning (or his tweets) once again. The reality is that I’ve been socked in the gut once again as another black man has been shot by law enforcement and no justice has been had.
I’m going to tell you what I really think right now because I’m angry and I don’t think you guys get it. I’m an African American woman and I voted for Hillary and voted Democratic because that’s what we’re supposed to do. But I have to be honest and say I think our alliance is one-sided right now.
Here we have again yet another example with Walter Scott that proves that in the United States Black Lives do not matter. This didn’t all happen because Donald Trump was elected, this has been the case for a long time yet I don’t see the urgency to do anything to change things.
I’m tired of the talk and no action. I’m tired of the fear and the feeling of being devalued and I’m tired of social justice for people such as myself not being the primary issue that ALL members of the party I give my vote to.
When the hell is the Democratic Party going to get some freaking balls and stand up against the injustices that we all know are happening in this country?
Sorry for the rant but I’m hurt, gutted, and tired and I feel like as a black person in this country there’s no way for us to get justice.
