OUTRAGE IN CHARLESTON – WE SAY NO MORE!
SPEAKOUT AND PROTEST
WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?

On the day Pres. Obama is giving the eulogy for the victims of the massacre in Charlestonat Emmanual A.M.E. Church… We say:

NO MORE – WHICH SIDE ARE YOU ON?

NO MORE! To racist violence targeting Black people, whether the perpetrators are white supremacists out of uniform, or cops in uniform.

The white supremacist who murdered 6 Black women and 3 Black men, had the nerve to say “… you are raping our women and taking over our country.” This in a country where countless numbers of enslaved Black women were subjected to rape by slave owners and other white men associated with the plantations and in a country founded on stealing the land from the inhabitants. This magnitude of the horror perpetrated demands a powerful response.

While there has been a lot of response to this foul massacre, there’s something missing in that response – something that taps into and gives expression to the rage that many people righteously feel over this atrocity. There is too much talk that what’s needed now is coming together and healing. How can there be healing if the deep wounds inflicted by white supremacy aren’t exposed for what they are? Should we come together with those who unleash and/or preside over attacks on Black people on every front and hold hands while these attacks continue?

The time for reconciliation and healing is after the disease has been diagnosed and rooted out not while it’s still raging. The disease is white supremacy, and it’s been raging in America since the first Africans were dragged to these shores in slave chains. It continues to rage today with police being given a green light to brutalize and murder African-Americans and Latinos; and with racists feeling emboldened to massacre Black people.

THIS MUST STOP!
