Please remove the word “snitch” from your vocabulary.
This is in response to some disturbing posts I’ve read from black women on the web who proudly say they refuse to call the police on “their” black men in their neighborhoods when crimes are committed against them or their neighbors.
There is NO black cavalry coming to save you.
The white dominated police is the last line of defense for AA women and children. When you refuse to call them, you give the black criminals around a free pass to do as they please. Contrary to what black male criminals tell you, involving the police is not betrayal.
I don’t know about you, but I am grateful for the police, especially hearing the stories of women in children who do not have that kind of protection in majority-black nations. I didn’t say there isn’t corruption within the organization or that there are not cops racist against the black collective, because there is. But let’s not act dumb. The OVERWHELMING majority of these cases of harassment and searching involves black men and not black women. The main reasons you see an increase in black women going to prison are because they are trying to coddle/protect their deadbeat relatives/boyfriends and will go as far as to go behind bars for them. It has to be said.
Why would you not utilize a resource that too many black women and children around the world don’t have access to? Some cops are racist. So are some employers. So are some colleges/universities. So are the people who work at your grocery store and shopping center. Are you going to forfeit your education and stop working because of racism? Have you stopped getting new clothes? Are you growing your food in your backyard now? *blank stare*
How is it you have no problem going about your day in the other cases, but when it comes to your safety, YOUR LIFE, you do…nothing? If the key to your safety, your survival, is dependent on white law enforcement, how can you afford to be anti-police?
