#Formation (Part 2)

So far I have deleted four people from Facebook because they are buying into this BS about Beyonce suddenly being racist.

In my previous post I talked about how people were all of a sudden outraged because of her video, saying that she was anti-cop, a racist bitch and somehow all of that led to body shaming. Yet people still don’t get it.

Here is an example of that stupidity:

Let’s start with the “don’t shoot to looting drug stores” comment. First, saying “Don’t shoot” isn’t a game. People are saying it because people are being murdered by police officers who walk away with no more than a slap on the wrist (if that).Police brutality is a real thing, it has been on the news for how long now? You can’t deny it. Like every other white reporter that talked about the “looting and riots” that happened in Baltimore and other cities around the nation, no one mentioned that there were also peaceful protests. She is only pointing out the bad, not to mention that there is proof that if the “riots” were carried out by a group of white people, they would have been described completely differently.

She also finishes her opening line by saying that this is another statement of how Black Lives Matter “more.” If she had been paying attention to the entire #BlackLivesMatter movement then she would know that the only reason that people are saying this only because time and time again, throughout history and today, the government, media, and people all over the country have tried to deny that they matter at all.

Later, she says that this is an example of a celebrity using to fame to  shove an aggressive message down people’s throats. I’m sorry, did she not notice who was running for president? Donald Trump used money to become a candidate and is trying to deport people who were born here and create another Holocaust. How the hell is that not aggressive?

Then she says that the Super Bowl performance salutes a group “that used violence and intimidation to advance not racial equality but the overthrow of white domination.” Let’s talk about that for a second. The whole reason the the Black Panther Party exists was for self-defense. Yes there were a militant group but only because it was necessary. People were being murdered.  Everyone keeps trying to make it sound like the black equivalent of the KKK, but its not. And for the record, the government dismantled the Black Panther Party while the KKK is alive and thriving. Not only that, but  she literally just admitted that white domination is a thing. But since she fits into that category its okay right?

And no, Beyonce did not do this to get attention. She’s BEYONCE, she’s already talked about 24/7 and if she wanted attention she would have made it known that she and Jay-Z were the ones that bailed the protesters out of jail in Baltimore. No one knew that until recently and event then, the news didn’t come from them.

You want America to heal? Then do something that supports and promotes equality and the American Dream that people come here for. You think Beyonce is playing the victim? Please tell me how supporting your community and standing up for what you believe means that you’re playing the victim. How do you play the victim after watching tons of people who look like you get killed on camera and then constantly watch their killers face no consequences. There is a difference between playing a victim, being one, and supporting those who are actual victims.

And since when did she deny that white people liked her music, or that white girls look up to her just as black girls do? Do you even know how many people (of all races)  have been blasting Formation in their cars, saying how much they loved her performance at the game and immediately bought tickets for her tour as soon as it was announced. Not of that really matters anyway because whether people want to believe it or not, BEYONCE IS BLACK. So it makes sense for her to want to make a statement about the issues that plague her community. The fact that she has money and power is more of a reason for her to do so. She has the power to do something and give a voice to the people that don’t. Why is that a bad thing?

And what the hell does Jay-Z have to do with anything. This just shows that she’s grasping for anything to try to throw at her. That has absoluitely nothing to do with anything that is happening right now, yet she felt the need to bring it up.

At the end of the day, you can stand with us or against us, but either way #BlackLiveMatter.

    This woman is an idiot and I hate that she’s saying, “Oh, stop playing the victim.”
    Having children murdered is not playing the victim simply because they’re black.
    Having black people murdered in custody is not playing the victim.
    Speaking out about these issues because they’re relevant and SERIOUS is not playing the victim.
    This was awesome!

    • Thank you! And literally I can’t stand anything about this woman. This is literally a part of the reason that there is so much inequality in the world

        I know right! Arrogant, ignorant people like her that just can’t see it. They really don’t realise how ignorant and stupid they are. If they took a second to realise that maybe people like Beyonce had a point, then the world would be a better place.

  2. I didn’t get the sudden hate towards Beyonce because I got what she was saying. You notice though how most of the people giving her hate, are white? I don’t even need to know what that “news presenter” is saying, she will never understand what life is like an African american…Never.
