Yesterday, I cussed more than I ever have in my life. I was dropping all types of F-bombs. I kept yelling “FUCKKKKK” at random intervals after learning that Darren Wilson would not be getting indicted. FUCK EVERYTHING. FUCK IT ALL. ALL OF IT.
I mean, I KNEW it was coming. I KNEW it was happening but bracing myself for the impact didn’t stop it from hurting like hell. I wrote more about that for my column on TheGrio, talking about the rage I feel. Check that out.
America wants to play Global Captain Save-A-Hoe and help citizens of other countries find freedom. Meanwhile at home, Ferguson is happening. Oh ok. Makes sense.
ANYWAY, Darren Wilson, Michael Brown’s murderer was said to have been acting in self-defense. Apparently, he was attacked and beat up by Mike, even though Darren himself is a grown ass man at 6’4 and 210 pounds. Pictures of Wilson were released showing his “injuries” and let me tell you. I’ve been more hurt when I missed a good sale at Target than Darren Wilson was on the morning of August 9, 2014.
WHAT?!?! I don’t see any injuries here. Dude looks like he might have scratched his head before he got a perm or something. I’ve injured myself more trying to do a face scrub more than this hapless hoodlum got hurt when he was killing an unarmed Black boy. UGH!
Anywho, I took to Twitter and started the #ThingsMoreHurtThanDarrenWilson hashtag, which trended in the United States because we all have so much shade in our spirits to throw right now. Below are some of the tweets. If you cannot see them, read them on Storify.
Sometimes, you gotta laugh to keep from weeping.
My love to the people of Ferguson, to Mike Brown’s parents and to everyone who is feeling some righteous rage right now.
FUCK Darren Wilson and FUCK the injustice system for failing us.
