Leave My Black People Alone!

Leave My Black People Alone!

Whoa! What do you think you are? You think you own us?

No. Leave MY Black People Alone!

You better stop. You don’t own us.

That’s right. I don’t own anyone. Still doesn’t remove that you are MY People.

What the hell are you on?

Leave MY Black People Alone! MY People. Look, let’s go take a DNA test and see how close of cousins we are. Let’s find out how much we have in common.

Lady, you are a crazy one.

Well, you are MY People. My family. My relatives. My cousins. So, here I am. Leave My Black Family Alone!

Race is just an idea to divide you from me. Race makes it easier to say ‘you’re not worth protecting.’ Race makes it easier to justify abuse. As long as we still keep thinking along the lines of black and white, us verses them, all this hate under the justification of racial hatred won’t get to the root of the problem. Hate is the problem. Race is just the excuse.

You are MY People. You are My Family. We all belong to this giant family, each and everyone one of us.


About Isabella LeCour

She is nothing more than the collections of thoughts placed into the virtual worlds. She is a poet, a mother, a lover, many things to different people. But mostly, she is nothing but smoke and mirrors - some ethereal thing that blinks in an out of existence.
