ROC'N Wednesday! You Better Think

Dear Black‎ People,‎

Did you know there was a recent announcement‎ of‎ southern‎ states‎ allowing‎ nonessential‎ businesses‎ to‎ open‎ by‎ next‎ week?‎

The‎ businesses‎ listed‎ are‎ hair‎ salons,‎ nail‎ salons,‎ barber‎ shops,‎ mom‎ &‎ pop‎ restaurants,‎ theaters,‎ gyms‎ and‎ bowling‎ alley.‎ Now‎ think‎ for‎ a‎ moment...who‎ frequent‎ these‎ types‎ of‎ businesses?‎ ‎ Black‎ People!

Now,‎ think‎ again...why‎ are‎ these‎ specific‎ businesses‎ being‎ allowed‎ to‎ open?‎ ‎ Which‎ neighborhood‎ will‎ be‎ affected‎ by‎ the‎ opening‎ of‎ these‎ businesses?‎ ‎ What‎ data‎ was‎ used‎ to‎ determine‎ if‎ it's‎ safe‎ to‎ open‎ these‎ businesses?‎ ‎ Well,‎ all‎ of‎ the‎ current‎ data‎ presented‎ by‎ the‎ Coronavirus‎ task‎ force‎ and‎ scientists‎ indicates‎ a‎ staggering‎ rise‎ of‎ cases‎ in‎ the‎ African‎ American‎ neighborhood.‎ Doesn't‎ it‎ appear‎ to‎ be‎ a‎ conflict?

Coincidentally,‎ a‎ Coronavirus‎ vaccine‎ is‎ being‎ developed‎ and‎ there‎ is‎ a‎ need‎ for‎ people‎ to‎ be‎ tested‎ for‎ the‎ vaccine's‎ effectiveness.‎ Guess‎ who‎ those‎ people‎ will‎ be?‎ ‎ Black‎ People‎ (African‎ Americans)!

The‎ government‎ (pharmaceutical‎ companies‎ and‎ major‎ corporations‎ with‎ interests‎ in‎ this‎ pandemic)‎ is‎ planning‎ to‎ give‎ us‎ the‎ freedom‎ to‎ eliminate‎ ourselves.‎ They‎ want‎ us‎ to‎ put‎ down‎ our‎ safety‎ guards‎ and‎ go‎ out‎ to‎ get‎ our‎ hair‎ and‎ nails‎ done,‎ dine‎ out‎ at‎ our‎ favorite‎ chicken‎ wings‎ and‎ fried‎ fish‎ joint,‎ hang‎ out‎ with‎ our‎ black‎ People‎ bowling,‎ shooting‎ hoops‎ at‎ the‎ gym,‎ and‎ do‎ the‎ things‎ that‎ will‎ put‎ us‎ at‎ risk‎ for‎ contracting‎ the‎ virus.‎ ‎ Once‎ the‎ incidence‎ of‎ infections‎ increase,‎ the‎ government‎ can‎ mandate‎ vaccinations‎ to‎ combat‎ the‎ spread‎ of‎ the‎ virus‎ in‎ our‎ neighborhoods.‎ In‎ other‎ words,‎ we‎ become‎ the‎ human‎ guinea‎ pigs.

You better think!
