I knew when the phone rang…
…that The 5-4 Supremes ruled on some more shit.
Brother Rob Thurman called this bitch to give me the news and just the tone of his voice said it all.
Step up to pulpit...fluff afro…begin.
My sisters and brothers, our historical house note has come due!
And our social policy pocket book is about to get empty.
If we are a nation united in anything it is in our false belief that we will not have to pay for monumental fuck ups…that “oops, my bad” will suffice…and that there is a “gimme” in this thing called life.
Well, reality teaches us that the house note always comes due, so…and hello, this one is obvious as a motherfucker…electing a social conservative to two Presidential terms when Supreme Court Justices were fixin’ to retire had a fucking predictable outcome.
So, we have a new ruling on the role of race in the classroom and the wisdom of Chief Justice Roberts…
“The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race."
I want what he’s on...no really, I need some of that shit.
Anyhoo, this ruling will not open up an opportunity for equal competition and selection. 34 years as a black woman in America has taught me that ain’t a damn thing equal in this world…and that The Man never hands over power peacefully or because it’s the right thing to do.
What we do have is a ruling that will result in racial and class-based isolation.
My fellow St. Louisans know a thing or two about how that impacts a school system…don’t we?
This bitch is grateful for this ruling.
That’s right, chil’ren…I’m fucking glad they did it.
I’m tired of telling apathetic fence straddling sometimes I vote-ers that they need to give a shit…that these fucked up Supreme Court rulings will trickle down in a flood of oppression and a heavier boot on their neck.
I’m fucking exhausted with the debate over whether the pile of shit in the room is a pile of shit.
So, fuck it...right now I welcome the rancid stench reality.
And a sick part of me that I pray will go away soon welcomes the drama that will result from the recent rulings of The 5-4 Supremes.
Because this house note was going to come due…and opting for that adjustable rate “he’s not that smart but he looks like he’d be a nice guy to share a beer with” presidential option who then appointed two freakishly conservative what fucking world do they live in justices FOR LIFE may turn out to be the fuck up that keeps on fucking.
How much more of this shit will it take to nudge the masses to rise up and refinance?
Lawd, have mercy...
