U.S. Anti-Black Racism Update

Oh my god.

We've all heard about Sandra Brand, right? Okay. It's horrifying. Especially when you find out that Bland was an anti-racism activist.

But there is some good news.

Sandra Bland's Alleged Suicide Is Now Officially Being Investigated as a Murder

On Monday afternoon, Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis announced the death of Sandra Bland, which was initially ruled a suicide, would be treated "as it would be in a murder investigation." Mathis also said while the Texas Rangers were leading the investigation, the FBI was now supervising it.

It's something, anyway. Though I'm a little scared to hear the results. Though I can't imagine how black people are feeling right now. Especially considering how active the KKK has been after the victories over the confederate flag. Backlash over progress is always depressing, but it's downright scary for oppressed people.

Not scary for the KKK, though, who enjoyed police protection during their protest against the removal of the confederate flag with their friends the Neo-Nazis.

Dozens of uniformed officers created a perimeter to allow the Klansmen entrance to a double-barricaded “free speech zone” without being attacked by the counter-protesters who were not at all happy about the Klan’s presence.

Meanwhile, black security officers have to put up with asshole open-carry "activists" scaring the bejeebus out of everyone trying to survive the hell that is a U.S. airport.

And this is how President Obama was greeted in Oklahoma:

Aaaaand I've barely scratched the surface.

Fellow white people. Now is the time to do everything possible to support the black community. And for the love of god, don't tell them how and how not to deal.
