If you’ve noticed as of the last few years there has been a concerted effort on the part of corporate media, as well as the white majority populace to minimize or even disregard altogether the blatant murders and injustices that have taken place in the Black Community at the hands of law enforcement and the judicial system. Our Black Community has seen this play out time and time again, whether it be screams of blue lives matter after our pleas for justice and a recognition that Black Lives Matter. You have seen counters to protests with white people screaming all lives matter, in an attempt to make the Black Community feel bad or remorseful for saying that Black Lives Matter. You have seen this with the hatred shown towards Colin Kaepernick because he simply kneeled during the National Anthem as a way to acknowledge the atrocities that have been inflicted on our Black Community on a daily basis at the hands of cops and political tyrants who are hell bent on making our populace subservient and docile as was the case in the early 1900’s.
This is what has been termed Mass Gas Lighting Psychological Warfare. Its purpose is to counter every injustice they commit against the Black Community by switching the argument and making themselves out to be the victim and us to be the victimizer. For instance when talking about rogue cops killing innocent, unarmed black men, women and children the cops scream blue lives matter and talk about the hardships of the job. Every excuse is made as to why the unarmed person just should have complied and why it was justified to shoot and kill said person. If it is allowed and unchecked they will have the Black Community feeling guilty about even questioning why another Black Citizen has been killed at the hands of cops. Then they will also mention Black on Black murder in an effort to change the narrative and justify why it’s okay for cops to kill Black people because Black people are killing one another.
Unfortunately many Black people fall for this and lose focus of the real issue. And because Black people don’t own any real media outlets it becomes very difficult to counter their stupid argument by showing that white on white crime and murder is just as high. Funny how they never seem to get around to exposing that point. So they change the whole issue to make it seem as though we are the villains for screaming out against the injustice committed against our community and they make themselves out to be the victims. In most cases they just completely disregard what has been said altogether, ignoring our pleas of injustice, abuse and murder against our Black Community. Therefore this coming New Year as we continue to boycott and keep as much of our money out of white businesses and financial institutions as possible, we should also counteract this Mass Gas Lighting Psychological Warfare by not explaining our position. By not letting up when they try to change the narrative and make us out to be the villain, we must be steadfast and persistent in our pursuit of justice and never let up. When we see that they are trying to change the narrative we must act as though we do not hear them. Let their words fall on deaf ears, no arguing with them on anything that we know we are justified in pursuing! Our stance has to be firm and it has to be consistent. We cannot allow them to have us second guessing ourselves. We know that Walter Scott should not have been shot in the back five times. We know that Eric Garner should not have been choked to death. We know that Sandra Bland should not have died in a Texas Jail and we also know that there was foul play involved. We know that Philando Castile should not have been shot to death simply reaching for his I.D. We know that Tamir Rice should not have been shot in that park in Cleveland. Yet they will switch everything around to make each one of these people seem like the bad one and then try to make us feel guilty for even speaking out against the blatant murder that was committed against them. When they demonstrate this type of behavior, trying to make us seem crazy, we must ignore them at all cost and continue to move forward totally blocking them out, paying them no mind. Basically the same thing that they have done to us for more than 400 years now!
