Every time a cop kills a black person and you stand silently because it's too hard to discuss, you're doing your job in the system. Congrats
A system is a series of connected parts that make a whole. Racism is a system. It's not some lone shooter. It's all the pieces that made him
That is the system at work. White atrocities against Black bodies treated as isolated and benign by a sympathetic system. That's America.
White terrorist kills 9 in Black church, is taken in peacefully, assigned to sympathetic judge & everyday white people distance themselves.
The brilliance of #BreeNewsome's act is it forced SC to actively reaffirm their choice to raise the flag. Again. Today. Even after all this.
