Things Black Twitter Taught Me

November 6, 2018

 

Because black people happened to teach me about America more than my life ever could.

I’m a black cop. On the scene of a shooting one night. Using a flashlight to look for bullet casings between houses to collect as evidence. Dispatch gets a call of a suspicious looking black male in “police clothes” using a flashlight to “look into peoples houses” #LivingWhileBlack

Obama (2012) sits alone in a classroom after meeting for hours with parents of Sandy Hook victims. Trump (2018) sits at a disco party he threw at his private night club after spending 14 minutes with victims at the hospital in Parkland.

If every black adult male in the U.S. bought & registered a semi-automatic rifle tomorrow, Congress would pass gun control laws by Friday.

How many school shootings will it take for laws to change? Just one. A black student shooting white kids.

-@NubianKingBenji

 

This country was constitutional carry right up until emancipation. When black people fought for their liberation, then comes the gun control rules.

-@MAJTOURE

 

Y’all want teachers to effectively prepare our youth, carry straps, and bust back at school shooters but at the same time only pay them $40,000 a year.

“That black kid was acting aggressive and belligerent and i feared for my life so I had to shoot them.”

-@_BasedMistress

 

All this talk of arming teachers is a reminder to what happened to one employee of the Saint Paul (MN) Public School System who had a concealed carry permit.

RIP Philando Castille

Not even the wildest of hood niggas ever shot up a school .

-@tonestradamus

 

Explain to me how a school shooter who just murdered 17 innocent kids is apprehended without a single shot being fired but a black father holding a cellphone in his own backyard is murdered in cold blood?

-@sahluwal

 

Flint: We need clean water. Houston: We need help recovering Puerto Rico: We need electricity.

Trump: Tell Steph he can’t come to the crib.

-@fuckwillie

 

White people be calling the police on black people like it’s customer service at whole foods. It’s not customer service, it’s attempted murder.

-anonymous

 

WHAT WE SAID: We need common sense gun laws.

WHAT YOU HEARD: Take away y all the guns, melt them & make a statue of an NFL player kneeling.

“hOw CaN YoU tAlK aBoUt GuN CoNtRoL wHeN yOu’Ve NeVeT FiReD a GuN” how ya’ll anti gay and you’ve never sucked cock

-@jaboukie

 

Evidence collected over many years, obtained from many locations, indicates that the power of Prayer is insufficient to stop bullets from killing school children

-@neiltyson

 

2018 is watching children live tweet shootings while other kids who’ve survived school shootings talk them through it

-@Muna_Mire

 

You know, when I said I wanted the real world to be more like Harry Potter I just meant the teleportation and the magic stuff, not the entire plot of book 5 where the government refuses to do anything about a deadly threat so the teenagers have to rise up and fight back

-@MrFilmkritik

 

Young people have helped lead all our great movements. How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe; marching and organizing to remake the world as it should be. We’ve been waiting for you. And we’ve got your backs.

-@BarackObama

 

The sun never went out when Obama was president, is all I’m saying.
