I do believe that among the variety of nefarious things conjured under the vanity and sanity of whiteness is them thinking that we are all just that naive to their foolishness.
I can attest to the fact that the despondency is real and whiteness has a proven track record of which they assume zero culpability in terms of the atrocities you have cited. They appear oblivious to the faulty structures we have built beneath them by their design.
Many trolls will read our exchange of views and will grin from ear to ear basking in the despair they have contributed to as if whiteness indemnifies their actions and can buffer them from reprisal. They fail to recognize that their delusions more so destabilizes that power structure and that such idiocy will falter and fail as it did before and as it will again. It is only a matter of time. In due time the world will see fit to rise up and recognize that whiteness is but a tyrannical minority and their just deserts will be served.
And the point of this is…it doesn’t have to go down like that, but the vanity and insanity of it all ensures that it eventually will.
Patriotism is not about standing up straighter for the flag or singing louder under the biggest one you can find, it is premised on the shared beliefs and ideals that shape the democracy. It is about a reckoning with a mortifying history and its culminating effects and wanting to remedy it not bandage and hide it, but rectifying it for the sake of humanity.
