Black Lives Matter of NY gonna stat some s#*t over mandates
I think I might become a temporary BLM supporter…..Lets get some s#*t started!! Perhaps the catalyst….
“We’re putting this city on notice that your mandate will not be another racist social distance practice,” Chivona Newsome declared at the protest. “Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat. That is a promise.”
We are serving notice on the mayor, on the governor, on the restaurant industry that we will not allow for you to use this pandemic, vaccination cards, and masks as another reason to be racist, to put us in prison — because there’s enough of us in there,” Bernard said.
The gov is gonna regret all the support they initially gave BLM. I wish they go all-in this time also, it’s certainly going to be interesting to see it play out.
The BLM movement only has power because it receives establishment money. They may pose like this in hopes of boosting their base but, when push comes to shove, they’ll shut up and toe the government line.
I hope black people rise up against these mandates, but it won’t be under the BLM banner or the allied rainbow flag.
Their message is clever and persuasive—not surprising considering Hawk Newsome is their spokesperson.
They talk past the sale. The way they talk it is assumed that most black people will not be getting one of these treatments. The idea of black people getting vaccinated to avoid this tyranny is not even discussed. Black people are no more likely to stop being unvaccinated than they are to stop being black. Discrimination against unvaccinated people is discrimination against black people.
All of that is assumed and the focus is on the city for setting these discriminatory mandates.
