Today is the St. Ides of March


OK, so the shit is called “The Ides of March, but I am Black as fuck, and I am going to keep calling it the St Ides of March, and y’all will just deal with it.

I get so sick of a certain subset of white people constantly asking Black folks who speak out against the indignities, “Why do you make everything about race.”

We didn’t make everything about race. Y’all did with the entire social construct of race. We didn’t make this system; y’all did. We are just navigating our way through it.

I feel strongly enough about this that I pitched an op-ed to my editor at theGrio, and she accepted, so stay tuned for that.
