If…You in anyway rationalize the murders of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Mariam Carey, Aianna Jones, Rekia Boyd, Yvette Smith, or any other black person who was murdered by state sanctioned police violence. Or you let your family members do it without calling them out.
If…You don’t have any meaningful relationship with a black person.
If…You think the Black Panthers were national terrorists.
If…You hear the slur “welfare queen” and imagine a black woman.
If…You think the problem with this country is welfare queens getting pregnant just to steal more of your tax dollars.
If…You imagine a One God, gendered male, and colored White.
If…Your idea of beauty and excellence in people, art, music, film, literature etc. is rooted in Eurocentricity.
If…You think the disproportionate number of black people in US prisons is due to Black criminality.
If…You secretly think Black people should “just quit their whining and pull themselves up by the bootstrap” while refusing to realize that this White Supremacist-Capitalist-Patriarchal system grants you innumerable privileges in every part of your life.
If…If you refuse to use these privileges to work to break down the White Supremacist-Capitalist-Patriarchal system that is so hostile to Black life.
