The black woman’s relationship to her own goddamn community is one of the most toxic ones in existence.

Breaking up is long overdue.

May I suggest that you take your Black Card, cut it up, throw it in the trash, and move on with your life in peace?

Now my friends from other races and cultures may be scratching their heads and wondering, “What the hell is a Black Card?” No worries, I got you covered! Allow me to explain.

The Black Card is a made-up card that is assigned to those who belong to the black race. If a card holder is not black they have done something noteworthy that benefits the black race to receive it. However, to retain this card that holds absolutely no value you are usually required to adhere to the community’s rules and guidelines.

Anomalies are usually not welcomed, and they risk getting their cards revoked. This is our form of cancel culture, in a way. Allow me to provide some examples:

You actually think for yourself instead of allowing the black community to tell you what you should be angry about? Don’t participate in group think? Card revoked.

You refuse to listen to the individuals who tell you that black men are being locked up for absolutely no reason, yet the predominantly black neighborhoods scattered throughout the country continue to be breeding grounds for crime and violence, with black men responsible for the majority of lawlessness in these communities? Card revoked.

You maintain healthy, thriving relationships with nonblack people instead of spending your precious time constantly begging them to acknowledge their “white privilege,” as if this acknowledgment is in any way productive or beneficial to you? Card revoked.

You understand that how you carry yourself through your speech, dress, and actions is usually how the public gauges how they should treat you, and this concept isn’t based on racism but on human behavior as everyone gets judged no matter their racial background whether they like it or not? Card revoked.
