I’m tired of us trying to convince folks black people are human beings. Your liberation will not be gifted in a eloquently written op-ed in the NY Times. It will not be the top headline in a press release. It will not be written in a beautiful packaged report. It will not come from a charming, articulate savior of a man. It will always be the people liberating themselves through mass movements, fighting for their liberation because it is not just peace we want, it is justice.
