There is nothing more infuriating to me than when I see people continuously telling black people to stop talking about and remembering slavery.
I was dumb enough to scroll down to look at the comments on this Yahoo article on the movie "12 years a slave". It's basically a movie about a free black man who was captured by slavers and taken to the south as a slave. The artical was simply bring up to light just how common this practice was. Literately every 3rd comment was to the effect of "Black people stop talking about slavery already" or my favorite "Blacks were sold into slavery by other blacks, stop blaming me". This is the same bullshit attitude I see and deal with on here and have to deal with in my own personal life 8/10 times I talk to someone other than black about slavery. No one is fucking blaming you so stop being fucking dismissive. I swear it seems that if an event didn't happen to mostly white people, it's expected to be forgotten and never broughted up. I'm so fucking tired of being dismissed.
Black people are still living with the long lasting effects of slavery in America so kindly STFU already and let us talk and make movies/songs/plays/ect about what ever the fuck we want.
