Baayyybeee. If there was a king of this list, it would be Mr. Shameik Moore. As someone who was a huge fan of all of the projects I’ve seen him in, it was extremely disappointing to watch Moore sell his people down the river, regurgitating a lot of the same rhetoric White people use to rationalize our murders at the hands of police.
He suggested that we need to learn how to deal with police. As if so many of our deaths at the hands of cops have not been completely unwarranted. Moore tweeted some wild things. But it all began like this.
Black on Black crime.
Trying to leave the past in the past–not acknowledging that it’s still affecting the present.
Using his personal experience and privilege of no t having dealt with the police to speak to systematic racism.
And the disrespect of our historical heroes.
