The mass murderer Dylan Roof is about to go on trial, he’s pleading not guilty, he’s not denying killing Blacks people, but he’s saying it’s not a crime; I guess he’s gonna use the Jay Z defense: “It’s Hard Not to Kill Niggas.”

Reflecting on that atrocity, it still disheartens me that we turned an assault on African Bodies into a movement to bring down a damn flag, as if the flag and not the System and White Aggression is the problem. We waged a movement against symbols of Racism instead of targeting Racism.
