Luckily Brittany Packnett, black activist and amazing human being, outlined it in an incredible Twitter thread.
In the wake of injustice, the powerful will ask the oppressed to choose “peace.”— Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) September 15, 2017
But the powerful brought they violence in the first place
How offensive to hear you demand peace from those of us who didn’t invite the violence in the first place.— Brittany Packnett (@MsPackyetti) September 15, 2017
How dare you.
There's more too it and you should read the entire thread.
The fact is that we white people have been bringing violence to largely peaceful civilizations for centuries. We come and we murder and we steal everything, and then claim it was always ours. That is our legacy going back many centuries. We stole most of the things we claim credit for, subjugated everyone who was not white, kept education and resources for ourselves, and now some of us have the audacity to claim that since we were the only ones inventing things during this time of mass subjugation, we are therefore the superior race.
Meanwhile, many of those who are not outright white supremacists still demand that those we oppressed only fight for the rights and status we stole from them and continue to withhold by our standards. Which, to many, means only protesting in ways that are so ineffective, we don't even notice it. No disruption. Not even doing a different thing during our shitty, violent national anthem.
How dare you. How dare we.
We have created so much violence. We do not deserve peace.
No justice, no peace.
