45.  Are you a “Egyptians were not black” type of person?  YES

46.  Are you a “White supremacy?  What’s that?  There is no such thing.” type of person?  YES

All of the statements inside of these 46 questions (plus plenty more I failed to list) are all statements that have been used repeatedly by white people to justify either upholding or maintaining that status quo of systemic racism & white supremacy or they are used to turn a blind eye to the plight of black people period.  I’m sure there are more questions I could put on here, but I got other shit to do.

Some of you white people are reading this & saying to yourselves, “but I’m not my ancestors”.  True you are not your ancestors.  But the foundation your ancestors put in a great deal of work to create allowed for a country so deeply rooted in racism towards Africans to fester for generations unchecked & unchallenged.  Your ancestors allowed for this country to eat, sleep, breath fantasize & masturbate to racism in some form that its effects ooze out of every facet of American life today to the point where the 46 questions I posed have to even be a thought in your mind to wonder if you are responsible for your ancestors’ sins to begin with.  Your ancestors created this reality that black people have to live with in the present day.  You may not be your ancestors & you may feel like you shouldn’t be held responsible for your ancestors’s sins, but guess what…black people living in the present that are still dealing with the effects of your ancestors cannot dig up your deceased ancestors to hold them responsible for the way they purposely went about systemically oppressing black people.  Black people will hold you, white person, accountable because it is you, white person, who has inherited the mess your ancestors created & you have the power to actually change it.  The problem is, too many of you do not want to change it because you either support the foundation your ancestors laid or you could careless because you, white person, have the option as to whether or not their foundation of pure racism affects your life or not.  You can choose to be “colorblind” or wonder why black people appear to be so angry or choose to makeup random justifications to pretend like you are exempt from the affects of racism because you have a black friend or black significant other.  You have those options.  Black people on the other hand do not have the option to remove themselves from the stigma of racism your ancestors set in place that has permeated throughout society for damn near 500 years now.  So until you, white person, decides to actually go about the business of dismantling systemic racism & white supremacy….YES, YOU WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE SINS OF YOUR ANCESTORS.

Your favorite mulatto.
