This was how the myth of Black criminality started, for the record. After the abolition of slavery, a lot of states made laws targeting Black people specifically, and then put them on chain gangs to get free labor from them.
Oh, and the US is still disproportionately incarcerating Black people and private prisons are making huge amounts off them.
I stubbornly refused to go to the dr and then my job made me go to the emergency room. Some people died. I obviously didn’t know their names but I did catch their times of death. So rest in peace 23:21 and 23:23.
My day one. Literally. I don’t remember life without you… Well there was that one time our mommas was beefed out but that’s water under the bridge. Cheesecake and subs my nigga! Mr rienowski! Hobby horse! Circle head! I’m fiiiiiniiiished! Life! Lmao
Being raised by my mother…I just don’t think kids deserve to be rewarded for doing things they’re supposed to do. If you want praise go above and beyond. Be selfless. Donate time. Give great effort. I’m not buying you a new phone for simply passing in school. Where them A’s at? How have you served your community? How have you helped around your home? My momma didn’t give us shit for simply passing. There was a level of excellence we had to reach before there was a reward outside of a simple “good job”. People say she was hard on us but I appreciate being taught that things shouldn’t and won’t just be handed to me at a young age. My nieces and nephews all think that they are owed things for average effort. They think they deserve everything they want… but shouldn’t have to work towards anything.
