Black people can we please stop falling for the trap that every black person is supposed to represent all of us and when they don’t, we don’t have solidarity?
In my opinion, racial solidarity is a fasad. Class solidarity and shared values solidarity, maybe. But racial solidarity? We are spending far to much time trying to live up to a construct that was literally crafted to distract us from reality.
This isn’t to say black people shouldn’t help each other based on the fact that many of us have common issues.
I’m saying to expect people of all different types, personalities , upbringings, cultures , etc. to just be on the same accord on the basis of skin color alone is crazy unrealistic , unfair, and even contributes to the discrimination we do to ourselves.. #blacklivesmatter #raceisaconstruct #blacklives
