[Serious] Okay white people, we’ve posted, we’ve shared, we’ve listened. What are our next steps to legitimately help the #blacklivematter movement?

Protest. The system is not broken, it was made this way. It’s unfair, it’s cruel. The best we can do is storm the streets and chant. Show them we don’t stand for this!

Talk to your kids about race. Talk about it early and often. Normalize that people look different and it’s okay to talk about. Read kids books from PoC authors and illustrators. Show your kids media with PoC’s as stars created by PoC’s. When you do that talk about how people look different and why and what that means. If you don’t talk about it kids come up with their own ideas.

Make cops carry some sort of hazard insurance (like malpractice insurance for doctors) and make the cops responsible for their own mistakes versus the taxpayers getting the bill

  • Prove that your grievances are backed by reality instead of sensationalized media coverage

  • stop assuming that a majority of whites are racist, as in this post. You’ll only create more racists

  • stop reaffirming the racists’ beliefs about you by not rioting and looting. You’re only creating more racists.

  • stop reaffirming the racists’ beliefs about you by fixing whatever causes you to commit a wildly disproportionate amount of the violent crime in this country. I am far more likely to be killed by a black man than a black man is to be killed by a cop. Cops are far more likely to be killed by black men than black men are to be killed by cops. Alternatively, just acknowledge the reality of this statement without a knee-jerk “but that’s racist” comment

  • stop reaffirming the racists’ beliefs about you by picking the worst possible examples to get angry about – Floyd was a convicted thief for example. Does not support the narrative that law abiding blacks are persecuted and executed at random. Nothing about this case supports the idea that racism was a motivating factor rather than sheer incompetence or personal grudges

  • look at your local political environment. If you’ve been supporting the same people for decades without progress, maybe it’s time to try something else. Police answer to city governments and mayors, not federal or state authorities.

Black people need to take each other seriously. Yes we all see the news but what doesn’t get reported (Because it’s deemed racist) are the statistics that prove black on black crime, especially black on black murder, is statistically way more likely to happen than white on black crime and white on black murder.

Here is a quote – From 1976 to 2005, 94 percent of black victims were killed by other African Americans.
