In light of the Jeremy Clarkson Incident, and this coming from a huge Jeremy Clarkson fan too, only thing that shocks me is
how “shocked” Britain acts when something mildly racist happens. I don’t think many black people give a rats ass whether Jeremy Clarkson used the N word or not, what we do give a shit about is whether we can walk home from work without the police “randomly” asking me for ID Or what I’m up to that late.
According to BBC “The home secretary, Theresa May, is to introduce a “comprehensive package” reforming the use of police stop-and-search powers after telling MPs that as many as a quarter of a million street searches last year were probably carried out illegally”. It was stated that black people are 7 times more likely to be stopped by the police, which i have experienced several times myself as a young black male. Theresa May put across the need for a comprehensive reform package, after findings of a study by Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary that showed that 27% of stop-and-search records did not contain reasonable grounds to search people, even though they had been approved by supervising officers.
if Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Constabulary research is correct, that means more than a “quarter of the million or so stops carried out under the Police and Criminal Evidence Act last year could have been illegal” stated may. This may not change much in the way of racism in britain, but it shows action being taken in our institutionalized racist Britain, so big ups to Theresa May, or as Jeremy Clarkson would say “ma nigga”.
I as a black male living in Britain would be more concerned with this, than something Jeremy Kyle.. excuses me, JEREMY CLARKSON mumbled thats considered racist by social standards it seems. It Upsets me how actual racism that affects our daily lives everyday gets ignored, but this Jeremy Clarkson ordeal will remain trendy till the next Britains got talent episode airs.
Sleep is a luxury i used to have, haven’t had proper sleep in days.. Revelation thoughts like John hoping its just a phase.. Windows closed amnesia of what fresh air feels like… so i breath this emancipation-less polluted air is what it feels like… thoughts debating on decisions made that cant be turned back.. value lost over regrets like its burnt crack… Hating my soul hoping the feeling aint mutual.. trying to move on from the bullshit, thathas become a ritual.. like a repeated song overplayed on my playlist… like an atheist.. startin to believe in the lies i know is BS.. but when you hear the same lie over & over its all you can relate.. truth transforming into fiction like a Spielberg movie.. A movie with scripts altered at my expense cant afford it like its Gucci… Happiness is my ex and love is a bitch that’s fake.. thinkin about happiness and how breaking up with her was a mistake… yet loyal to the ungrateful… heavily unfaithful.. Girl that i call hope she’s so disgraceful… tryna close the next chapter but still stuck on page two.. in the book of life where survivor is the author.. reading between the lines… tryna escape but still trapped in my mind..
thought about it, thanks
haha, may be ;)
