Blerdy PSA: I Am Tired Of This!

Hey Hey Heroes, Travelers, and Wandering NPCs~ I planned on having a review up today, but I think right now, this is more important.

While most of us are still sheltering at home while ‘Rona rages on outside, here in the States, we’re still reeling from the most recent string of Black slayings and the resulting civil unrest as many take to the streets to show their disgust at the double standard that continues to exist within our country.

As a Black woman I am so tired of seeing so many of my people murdered for no other reason than they were Black in America. COVID-19 is not the only threat—a corrupt system that functions on inequality is—what happened to George Floyd is not new and senseless killings like this won’t end until the system that runs on fear and hate is dismantled. I know, this is a bit heavier than what I usually post here, but I’m tired of seeing the same shit day in and day out! I’m tired of having to be on my guard when I leave the safety of my home to go about my day to day life. And I refuse to stay silent in the face of such blatant and disregard for black lives. Being Black in America should not be a death sentence.

  1. Hey there, pokeninja, it’s been forever! I hope you’re doing well and stay safe out there! And yeah…I’m really tired of this happening too. Seeing that footage was sickening and I cried. My whole family was enraged and this is a very big problem that continuously happens. While I can’t afford to donate right now, I’ve shared this info with friends and family. I’m glad you talked about this. It’s very important that we do.
