Never before have I seen a contrast so stark and a divide so deep, as when I read a screed from a self-described "fat" angry black women, who happens to be a Black Lives Matter organizer, and the very next day I ran across a 13:00 minute video by another "angry black woman" by the name of Va'Shona Dixon, that gave me a deep understanding of the fact that the Black Lives Matter movement is not just attempting to initiate a race war across America, but they are creating a civil war within the black community.
ANGRY BLACK WOMAN #1
The first woman is a Black Lives Matter organizer named Ashleigh Shackelford, who self-describes herself in her bio as a "queer, nonbinary Black fat femme writer, artist, and cultural producer." Shackelford was highlighted by Paul Joesph Watson over at Prison Planet for her assertions that all "white people living today owe blacks 'reparations' for slavery," despite as Watson points out, " only 1.4 percent of white Americans owned black slaves at the height of slavery."
Watson linked to some of Shackelford's articles, where she says that any white people showing up at Black Lives Matter protests, are "triggering" to her and the message she has for whites, should be an eye-opener for every single person that has worked hard to earn a living, build a business, and survive in these economic hard times.
"Nothing you have is yours. Let me be clear: Nothing you have is yours. Also, Let me be see through: Reparations are not donations, because we are not your charity, tax write off, or good deed for the day. You are living off of stolen resources, stolen land, exploited labor, appropriated culture and the murder of our people. Nothing you have is yours."
Shackelford wants white people to give blacks money so that they can buy cellphones, laptops and land, asserting, "Be ready to write checks and give up your car keys."
Reading Watson's description of this woman (I use that term loosely) wasn't enough, I just had to click over to her article and read this I-am-entitled-to-everything-someone-else-has-worked-for social justice warriors's screed.
Shackelford writes the following:
"We need housing, transportation, food, clothes, free space for meetings and work space; we need laptops, cell phones, encrypted systems for communication, solar power and LAND. Stop playing. Y’all really thought pulling up to the protest in your Hyundai was gonna be enough? Nah. You have to give us everything we need and more, because even if it means you go without — it doesn’t matter because that’s how we been living for 400+ years. Reparations will never be negotiable. So if you’re not willing to talk money, you are not here for #BlackLivesMatter as a movement or for us as individuals."
In describing how she feels when white people "trigger" her by showing up at BLM protests, she states "I'm actually retraumatized by how comfortable white people are in not doing anything to change their violence."
Yes, she went there...... no mention of how BLM activists such as herself completely ignore black on black violence and murder. For example, Chicago. In November 2015 a site called Intellectual Takeout published data released by the Chicago Police Department, detailing 2011 data, which was the latest released at the time, showed that 75 percent of murders that occurred, happened to blacks, and 71 percent of the murders were committed by blacks.
Va'Shona is black and she is angry as well, but that is where the similarity with Shackelford ends.
Va'Shona is angry at the racism in reverse she is witnessing by BLM members, to which she calls a "cult."
She is angry at black parents that "poison" their children's minds from birth, telling them they will never achieve anything because "white people" will keep them down.
She is angry at those that use an example of a black man like Ben Carson, who made something of himself, and call him an "Uncle Tom."
She is angry at black leaders, specifically naming Barack Obama, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, for rushing to judgement and deliberately stoking racial tension about police shootings of blacks, before investigations are completed and as she says before the "facts" are even determined.
She is angry that Democrats are using black people and pushing racism just to "stay in power."
She is angry at black Christians that quote CNN, which she calls the 'Clinton News Network." She is also angry at black Christians that support Black Lives Matter, saying that God is testing them and the church, stating "God's people ought to know better."
What is so striking about Va'Shona's anger is that it is expressed so very calmly, without the need that Shackelford seems to have of cursing with everything she writes.
Va'Shona says she can't be accused of being racist by speaking these truths because she is black, but she has no doubt many of those reverse racists will label her an "Uncle Tom."
There is no way to adequately describe how powerful Va'Shona's message is, how anguished she is at what she is watching happen to the black community because of black leaders and Black Lives Matter activists, especially powerful when you compare her anguish to Shackelford's anger.
