☕ Morning fam,
I’ll say it again. A lot of what we’re experiencing today either has roots in or was reignited during Ferguson. This year marks 8 years since we took to the streets, 8 years since white radical politics co-opted what we started and installed black faces (BLM, Black Girl Magic and Ferguson sellouts) to sell it. The grift began here. Black Girl Magic began here. Identity politics was ‘fortified’ here… changing the race/gender and/or orientation of party oppression and replacing mediocre white liberals/progressives with mediocre black liberals/progressives. Black nonprofits/clergy selling out the black grassroots was reignited here. The first protesters turned elected leaders assimilated into the Dem Party post Ferguson were elected here. The fake woke movement was launched here, memba using Netroots?
Fast forward 8 years, the left exposed… not only no justice, but the same people have been on the wrong side of every issue since.
