it's like they forget that there are countries in the world who are much worse off than those in the states, where was black lives matter when it
comes to the poor folks in the west bank being systematically erased?
they think that racism starts and ends with America ?
where was black lives matter during the genocide in south africa
a large proportion of americans seem to think they are the only ones who matter in the war on racism
they also forget that they arent the only ones being oppressed by their governments , I know that I dont get profiled or # like that in scotland but I
know im not rich or have anyone looking out for me , no one gives a flying # about us at the bottom and there are alot of poor people in Scotland .
1 in 5 kids in my city live in absolute poverty and live off foodbanks and will likely never get an education at university level thanks to the tories
, and will likely not make it to live passed 60
Im not whining but its like come on , we see the racism too and we see the governments standing on our heads at the bottom
keeping themselves afloat while we drown .
We are aware of your plight and we feel for you all too , dont further divide us from you by calling us privileged or racist or whatever.
I was raised to see everyone equally by my parents and this was further strengthened when I found my love for hiphop and its diverse cultural
Its just wrong that so many wont accept genuine compassion towards them because we have the same skin colour as those at the top crushing them under
