“I cannot accept the definition of collective good as articulated by a privileged minority in society, especially when that minority is in power.” — Wole Soyinka
I wrote a low effort response to these white folk, mostly because they are white folk and I am not really a fan of Black folk writing to white folk. It would have been pretty easy for me to delete this tweet (since I already forgot about it) and wait out the 12 hours they say I needed to in order to re-use their service. BUT it’s worth noting for you all that this sort of mild content is considered too much for twitter, notwithstanding what the u.s. leadership and regular commentary amounts to. I’m stating facts NO ONE would dispute; and mainly saying Black folk should protect themselves–and yet that’s bannable. What does that tell you about those whom Twitter allows? That’s the main take-away!
It’s not a quality letter. It was written pretty quickly and of course written to white people (whom I’m not obligated to teach). But you can see what I wrote. And if they respond, possibly what they write back (although it’ll probably be that regular nonsense–i.e. delete your post and wait 12 hours [or Nigger, we censor niggers, deal with it.] Just showing ya’ll, white liberals.
White Violence is the Right Violence to Liberals
Letter by Onitaset Kumat to Twitter
Can it please be explained how my post violates some sort of rule, when I’m merely writing a provable FACT (in your limited character limit) and the president of the nation I live in is free to threaten whole nations with nukes? Is this a racial bias in your enforcement of your rules, where white people can literally advocate the destruction of other nations, but when a Black person says “white people are destroying nations and we shouldn’t just whine” it’s so abhorrent and contemptible that you need to silence something which EVERY OTHER PERSON would think is reasonable? Is it a tacit admission that Black people have no right to self-defense, but the U.S. president can not only tweet about destroying North Korea (for launching a missile near North Korea); but has destroyed Afghanistan for four planes hijacked by Saudi Arabian (and other national) pilots.
I’d be happy to be censored for being Black, it’s as OLD AS SLAVERY; but can you at least explicitly state that white violence is right violence, so that when you accuse Black people of “racism” you can let it be known that you’re really practicing it against Black people, for having the audacity to say something close to their own white so-called compatriots?
I await your response, or will you finally address the president of the united states and/or american politics/political commentary for the last century which advocated violence and has been sanctioned by its mass media, historical narrative and colonial past.
In other words, I said ‘Black folk should protect themselves’ and somehow that violates the rules of discussion on twitter (for Black people.) If I wrote “The police should protect themselves” which is as common as day, is that bannable? If I write “Children should protect themselves” is that bannable? If I write “Christians should protect themselves, am I touching on bannable? No of course not. But Black people protecting themselves is “STFU and delete that tweet.”
Come on. I think you might need to review whomever red flagged and approved this red flag.
