Yesterday I showed my support for Paris and Kenya in the wake of the terror attacks. I learned a lesson in humanity 101. My profile picture on Facebook was changed to show love and support those who were affected by the horrendous attack in Paris by having Frances flag colors fade into my picture, and I shared a post of a picture of hands in contorted in the the shape of a heart draped in the Kenyan flag that notated “Prayers for Kenya”. You would not believe the backlash that people, more so black people attacked other blacks for changing our profile pictures in support for France when they were in the forefront for all the atrocities in black nations.
Of coursed I shared a post on Facebook showing my disgust:
What happened to pray and support innocent lives lost no matter the country that was affected or race? I am tired of seeing negative posts about why people changed their profile picture… If blacks really care about blacks then instead of buying the new Jordan’s, gaming system, rims, and other unnecessary shit and donate to put the black community in a better position. Until you negros decide to do that, stop telling people not to show love and support for other countries that are going through dire times. #RantOver
