You don’t speak for us Ms. DiAngelo! African Americans don’t want or need your continued exploitation. As you collect tens of thousands per hour (and millions in book sales) asserting “systemic racism”,… Like so many these days, you seem to posess a “savior complex,” Ms. DiAngelo. You may believe you are sincere about helping us, but we are already a strong and resolute people group
We have had enough! These days, everywhere we look, we see momentum for more racial hatred and division. Everywhere we go, we see increasing carnage and destruction. Practically every conversation we have seems measured, calculated, and inauthentic because of mindless themes surrounding Critical Race Theory (CRT) like “White Fragility,” “White Privilege,” “Hegemony of the oppressor,” and the like. We say enough!
You don’t speak for us Ms. DiAngelo! African Americans don’t want or need your continued exploitation. As you collect tens of thousands per hour (and millions in book sales) asserting “systemic racism,” you gleefully support the systemic racism of Planned Parenthood while they mercilessly (and disproportionally) target black communities for “extermination.” They precipitate black genocide, yet you decline to speak out against or even consider the devastating effects to our community. Additionally, while you confirm acute disparities in the education system that create unequal learning for underserved black communities, you stop well short of supporting the great neutralizing force of “school choice.” If you were the least bit sincere, you’d strongly advocate for school choice. While you hold many nonsensical and illogical derelictions, these two alone confirm you don’t represent or speak for us!
Like so many these days, you seem to posess a “savior complex,” Ms. DiAngelo. You may believe you are sincere about helping us, but we are already a strong and resolute people group. Our history confirms we are more than overcomers! Blacks are not helpless victims incapable of accomplishing successful outcomes; we are eager and have been provided with innate talents and skills from God. When you advocate for lowering standards (in workplaces and in education) and preen about “wokeness,” you get richer and may feel better, but it’s degrading and insulting to us! Stop targeting and infantilizing the Black community. We have hope and a Savior, and it’s not you!
Ms. DiAngelo (and Et al), pushing exploitative and infantilizing schemes onto blacks hurts and undermines our progression. Because you push an agenda that is insensitive about our real plight, your works create a range of negative emotions, including distrust and disdain, not unity. As Dr. Martin Luther King advocated, we desire to be successful based on the content of our character, not out of forced racial quotas and collective animus.
The biased and divisive works of the CRT schemes you advocate are more indicative of vacuous racists preying on the heart, soul, and mind of unsuspecting blacks, not sincere moves toward unity. We know you’re are making millions while exploiting “race issues.” Still, we are praying that you renounce then denounce your ways and intentions and genuinely begin to embrace methods that will bring about unity and progression for blacks, not destruction.
We stand stridently in the fight for the soul of America. Every Black Life Matters (EBLM) strives to take a principled stance on every issue we face as a nation. Unlike BLM and so many others, EBLM is not an “activist” organization ideologically driven by vacuous screed when lives are in the balance. Instead, we carefully and thoughtfully weigh every issue we face with a principled mindset that logically applies righteousness and justice.
In the wake of the horrific mass killing that targeted Blacks in Buffalo last weekend, President Joe Biden gave a speech branding the “poison” of white supremacist ideology as motivating the awful deed. Biden asserted white supremacy is a poison that has been allowed to grow and fester and it’s an ideology that cannot be allowed to stand. Yes! This sad truth must certainly be addressed.
