I’m MF’ Tired

Rest in peace to all the lives that have been cut short due to the viciousness of White Supremacy and the many forms in which it manifest itself.

I think I’m finally ready to speak on some of the current events that have rocked the world these past couple of weeks. Originally I had plans to write a piece specifically in response to the video of Ahmaud Arbery moments before he was hunted and gunned down by two racist mfs, who at that time, were both still walking around this bitch free…

Update on that story: Ahmaud Arbery was hit with a truck before he died, and his killer allegedly used a racial slur, investigator testifies

But as we all know, a few days after mainstream media was flooded with the last moments of brother Ahmaud Arbery life… The world finally caught wind of what happened to dear sister Breonna Taylor in Louisville…

Update on that story: Breonna Taylor: Police killed black woman after storming home in hunt for suspect already in custody, lawsuit says

And then a few more days passed and all of a sudden it seemed like the roof of injustice just caved-the-fuck-in, and we were bombarded with a unnatural wave of names gone too soon to the pandemic known as White Supremacy.

*Just so it’s clear* ALL BLACK LIVES MATTER. PERIOD.

The main thing I want to say about these injustices is that, I’m mf tired…

MF’ Tired

I’m tired of fighting for the same shit…
I’m tired of seeing video after video after video of senseless violence being unleashed on undeserving Black bodies…
I’m tired of hearing the same old lies… “I feared for my life… He reached for my gun… I thought I saw a gun… I thought I had my taser…”
I’m tired of going through the same media cycle; Repeat what the cops say, discredit the rebellion, smear the victim, repeat…
I’m tired of joining Team video chats just to front like I don’t want to give every mf on my computer screen a piece of my mind…
I’m tired of people asking me when things will get better… Like I’m fucking Miss Cleo or some shit…
I’m tired of dealing with White people’s shit… And yes, White Supremacy, and racism is White people’s shit…
I’m tired of hearing, “but what about Black on Black crime?”
I’m tired of teaching White people their own history…
I’m tired of crying…
I’m tired being angry…
I’m tired of not knowing how to feel…
I’m tired of being tired…

I’m just fucking tired bruh…
