This Is ‘I Wish a Motherf*cker Would’ Week for Black People

White folks: Tread lightly. This election is testing what little patience we have left.

Our nerves are frayed, and our tempers are short—very short.

Don’t

Be a smart-ass

Assume

Humblebrag on social media

White people, you don’t have to apologize for saying something wrong if you’re quiet.

Enter ‘Black-only’ conversations

Believe the hype

Get froggy in these streets

Now we have to put our faith in White people, and Lord knows I have zero reasons to have faith in them at this point.

Do

Be quiet

Vote

Reflect

Respect our elders

Validate

More

Console

I’m not advising anyone to be scared of Black people. Just know, my friends, Black folks are exhausted and afraid.
