Was it "a lack of self-respect" when Jim Crow was the law of the land?
Was it "a lack of self-respect" when we were kidnapped and in chains?
So Blacks were getting oppressed,enslaved,slaughtered because "they didn't respect themselves?"
If it wasn't the case back then, then on what day did it shift from them just being exploitative oppressors to us being deserving of our oppression because of our own behavior?
So this whole time WE'VE been our own problem? Come on bra...
When you say things like that it's like you justifying the shit.
