I’m trying to sort through the foolishness in my head, considering what every thought means. Then this thought came:
We have this woman who’s been working hard to Advance people of color, specifically Black folks. A woman who’s fought hard and has a pretty amazing record to prove it. Hell, the NAACP stands with her in their released statement.
Is she crazy? We’re not too sure yet. Is she deadass Wrong? Yes.
But let’s assume that like the rest of the country, the powers that be in Spokane were tired of her attempts to help Black folks advance, and certainly tired of her crusades for immigrant reform, and they needed SOMETHING to bring her down before she got too big, and before the 1.9% Black folk in town became too independent. THIS was their SOMETHING.
Should we stand with her? Do the ends justify the means?
