"Take That Amurrrica!!!"-Donald trump
“Donald Trump will be our the 45th President of the United States”
This reminds of the time I got jumped. Got destroyed by two old white man, nearly choked to death. I was clowning around flirting with danger and just being a kid. Not really paying attention to anything, mischievous yes, but not deserving of being attacked by two grown man with a bat. When I came to, there was a blur of lights and cops everywhere. I was in shock, in pain and I was terrified. I thought that my attackers were going to come back. I believed I was in immense and immediate danger. My friends and family were angry and with vengeful intentions.
I then proceeded to hit the gym 6 days a week, sometimes twice a day. I was a scrawny 16 year kid and vowed to be able to better protect myself if that were to happen again. I can't recall what weight I gained but I was a tank by 1st day of college. What transpired though was never a need to physically protect myself again. Haven't been in a serious physical altercation sense that incident. What I did however find through all of this was respect, confidence and inner peace.
Perhaps just maybe this election is like this situation above. Black folks, women, LGBTQ, all people of color, immigrants, and any other non-white male marginalized communities out there...just got jumped. It may sting now. You may also feel a sense of real danger. It may be painful moving forward. Or perhaps it won't be that bad.
Regardless of the magnitude of the threat, real or perceived, that lays ahead of us, one thing is for sure. We need to ORGANIZE against this type of bigoted behavior, culture and climate. Not because doom is certain, we may just be alright-Thanks Kendrick. But because we need to squash all hopes of someone like this occupying such a powerful and visible seat again. Racism, sexism, xenophobia and hatred will not fall if we shrink. We must strengthen and grow.
Maybe it's like that
