I have several friends who are the hippiest of the hippies, and I love you all.
I have been having several conversations with you lately, being as patient and understanding as I can because you’re the good people.
The ones who want to bring the world better.
You want the world to do better and to be better.
And I have been keeping a lot of my truth from you in order to best see things from your perspective.
So this letter is to bring you my perspective; or at least, a different perspective.
Yes, you feel that Hillary is evil, and that Trump is evil, so you don’t see much of a difference. What you want is for something different.
What you want is for some American leader to stop wars, fighting, and maybe actually help the world come together.
Enter the dream of the third party.
It’s a great dream.
I’m for it too.
I think most people are.
You don’t want to have to choose between two evils.
(Note: I will be using “us”, “we” and “them” interchangeably here.)
For African Americans, EVERY CHOICE IS EVIL.
Every single choice that doesn’t create reparations, bring the black population to an EQUITABLE standing after suffering what is without question the worst crime ever perpetrated on Humanity the world has ever known- is EVIL.
(Yes- worse than the Holocaust.)
AMERICA is evil to the African American.
There’s even no going back to Africa, because THAT has been raped and pillaged by the same people.
EVERY CHOICE is evil to African Americans because there has never been anyone trying to bring equitable justice, or actually make them (us) equal.
But we choose anyway.
Am I overstating? Nope. I’m probably still understating it.
Actually trying to prevent Americans from VOTING, which I believe is against the whole fucking point of our democracy.
Actually CLOSING polls in places so that they have to drive 100 miles out, and requiring drivers licenses that match their current address, redistricting their representatives, and other total bullshit- TO PREVENT THEM FROM VOTING.
There are people in arenas CHEERING over the death of Freddie Gray (who was handcuffed, but stll managed to die of a broken spine), while at the same time calling Black Lives Matter a divisive, terrorist hate group all the while yelling “blue lives matter”!
You wanna talk about “lesser of two evils“?
Please bitch- how about you suck up the fucking choice that you DO have, between 2 people trying to protect YOU- even if they are killing other people?
Oh- you don’t like that we bomb the middle east?
But America will bomb anyone to keep it’s people on top- even other fucking Americans:
1921- A bunch of whites got mad and killed 400 blacks and destroyed MILLIONS of dollars of black property and businesses. Did you know that? Me either,
Our history calls it a “race riot”, but that’s completely inaccurate just to make it sound two-sided.
And there’s shit like that from the 1400s all the way to Alton Sterling and whoever will get shot this week.
So tell me more about how you don’t like one version of the white person who will keep doing the shit we Americans do.
That’s what is real in 2016, and even though it’s better than in 1916, it still ain’t shit.
But here we are, and some people actually want to go BACKWARDS.
To when American “was” great.
They want to go BACK to 1954- that’s the year the Trump people want to go back to.
Before all these uppity “African Americans” started marching.
But you tell me how you want to vote for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson because they are against fracking.
That’s voting your fucking conscience, is it?
You tell me how your conscience is more bothered by Hillary’s speeches to Wall street than giving the New Wanna Be Nazis a possibility of winning.
While you’re spreading doubt about Hillary to your other white third-partiers, you are giving more and more power to the Wanna Be Nazis.
Who want to ban muslims
Who want to deport immigrants
Who want to “fix” gay people, or put hem back in the closet
Who want to own women’s secuality and bodies
Who want to scream about “White Power” with the power of the President behind them.
But hey- it actually won’t affect you.
You can vote third party, 12th party, or whoever, and you can LOSE all day, and your life won’t change.
You won’t suddenly be told by half the country that they want to BAN YOUR RELIGION.
No matter how many white men shoot up innocent victims and CHILDREN, you aren’t getting on a watch list.
So, there’s for your fucking conscience, and your 3rd party bullshit.
Dream about third party in one hand, shit in the other, and whichever comes out first, throw it on your non-white, muslim, and gay neighbors:
