A rumor, likely be true, is that bravenak was the one who inspired this:



Because of your work in radio, you may get him to go over your list and the words of bravenak.

I cannot get these words by bravenak out of my head and heart, thinking as a woman and mother. I always knew this, but her words are so powerful:

252. Maybe delete and apologize for your 'race nagging' comment. We are dying and in jail.

It is not nagging. We are fighting for our lives and our childrens lives. How is that nagging? It is a demand to be treated fairly and equally and to be seen. Look at me. Notice my race. It affect me everyday. Why not just join our call and not feel nagged, but instead feel called to action?


Black Lives Matter:

This is a CALL TO ACTION TO PROGRESSIVES!!! SOS!!!! SOS!!!

MAYDAY MAYDAY, WE'RE SCARED TO LEAVE OUR HOMES AND THE COPS CAN JUST COME IN AND KILL US, HELP HELP HELP!!

OUR HUSBANDS ARE IN JAIL AND OUR KIDS ARE POOR, WE'RE SCARED!!


To that you say: Race naggers!!! I think that was a terribly unfeeling and mean response. It saddens me.

I cannot hold back the tears every time I read this heart rending plea to those who should be on her side.
