Planned Parenthood incites violent microaggressions toward black pro-lifers at Mizzou
by Jacqueline Hawkins
According to the definition found on microaggressions.com — yes, that is a real website — “Racial microaggressions are brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral, or environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.”
“[Microaggressions] create and enforce uncomfortable, violent and unsafe realities onto peoples’ workplace, home, school, childhood/adolescence/adulthood, and public transportation/space environments.” (source: Microaggressions.com)
If that’s the case, then Planned Parenthood (PP) is guilty of multiple violent microaggressions at the University of Missouri (Mizzou).
At our recent visit to the campus, CBR worked alongside the Life Education and Resource Network (LEARN), a pro-life organization led by black men and women with a message to the black community. We were there to say that if Black Lives Matter, then ALL Black Lives Matter.
For the record, I am a black woman and also a Project Director at CBR.
But when Mizzou students incited by PP arrived, they were especially disturbed to see us black folks. “We don’t like that you are tokenizing minorities for your agenda!” they shouted. And, “You shouldn’t use minorities to further your agenda!”
Note how the uppity white kids did not speak directly to the black pro-lifers. They didn’t come to us and say that they were concerned about our presence and the intent of our white co-workers. Instead, they spoke about us, in our presence, as if we were children at a daycare. Or perhaps slaves, mindlessly doing the will of our white masters, too stupid to comprehend the conversation going on about us.
How demeaning can you be, to suggest that black people are so stupid, we can’t even decide for ourselves whether to be pro-life or pro-abortion. If black people don’t act right, it must be the fault of our white masters.
Please, let’s call this what it is … racism, pure and simple. The PP students viewed us as nothing more than stupid “nigger joes,” unqualified to have our own views. They were so filled with contempt, they wouldn’t even speak with us directly. We were beneath them, unworthy to be treated as equals. So they addressed their comments to our white “masters” (according to their view).
Maybe Blacks really do need a safe space at Mizzou. No PP allowed, because they just want to kill off the stupid niggers in the womb so that America can be made into their lily-white ideal.
PS: Planned Parenthood, don’t try to suggest that you didn’t incite this violence against us. They were carrying your signs.
