Racism is a destraction

Refuse to be distracted

While the racism is racisting, let’s remember that it is a distraction. A powerful distraction, a harmful distraction, a deeply wounding distraction. A distraction all the same

A race bent on parisitically living off our blood. Deriving their worth from our worthlessness, their superiority from our inferiority, their nurturing from our deprivation, their entertainment from our art, their profits from our labour, their joy from our from our blood sweat and tears. Racist, who are you without me?

We must refuse to be distracted. We must be about the work. The work of self restoration, self reclamation, self sovereignty. We must be about excavating black joy. We must be about resting on behalf of our ancestors who couldn’t for generations. We must be about the work of loving our children, out-loving a world that hates and degrades them. We must be about our business, refuse to be distracted
