I Don’t Give a Fuck About Justine Diamond – Son of Baldwin – Medium

I Don’t Give a Fuck About Justine Diamond – Son of Baldwin – Medium – I don’t give a fuck because a black woman (or a Native woman) in the identical situation Justine was in wouldn’t garner support or sympathy from most white people. No. What most white people would do is look for reasons that might justify why the police officer “had” to kill the black woman.

Most white people rely on this idea that black people, in situations like these where white people are in pain, are only ever to be soothing and understanding; only ever to be Mammy or Uncle Remus; only even to extend condolences; only ever to embody loyalty; only ever to offer the empathy and sympathy that most white people purposely and haughtily deny when the situation is reversed — almost as if most white people still see us as their property.
