“They attack the victim, and then the criminal who attacked the victim accuses the victim of attacking him. This is American justice. This is American democracy and those of you who are familiar with it know that in America democracy is hypocrisy.”
WE DON’T WANT YOU!
NOT ANY OTHER DAY THAT REQUIRES JUSTICE AND HUMANITY—BECAUSE YOU HAVE SHOWN US NONE!
THE ONLY THING WE WILL NOW SHOW YOU IS THE DOOR OUT OF OUR HOUSE!
We don’t want you stealing our Black family members and friends for disproportionate lengths of time. We don’t want you taking bribes from law enforcement to overlook their violence, criminality, rape, and murder. We don’t want you supporting state initiatives and local measures that condone police terror in Black and Brown communities and fund mass incarceration. We don’t want you at all. What you call conservatism, we call white supremacy and anti-Blackness. Your white hood is showing Schubert, and the whole world is watching you try to shove it back under that yellow mop.
We understand deeply that white supremacy is systemic and that no one person is able to uphold or dismantle the gross inequities of the criminal in-justice system. Our current model was built from and based upon the enslavement of Africans and the genocide of Native Peoples. Modern day prisons serve as plantations. Modern day law enforcement serve as kidnappers and slave masters who protect white wealth and repress any rebellion from the present circumstances. Modern day district attorneys sit upon the auction block and sell off our loved ones for lengths of time that coincide with the levels of melanin in their skin.
We are not foolish enough to expect our district attorney to be fair and impartial with police, but DA Shubert, you are in a league of your own. You took nearly half a million dollars from law enforcement groups and have prosecuted more protestors for speaking out about police brutality than police who have abused their powerful position. Walking down the halls of Sacramento’s Superior Court, one is overwhelmed by the stark blank walls that contrast deeply with the warm Brown and Black skin tones of community members awaiting their sentences. You prosecute poverty. You prosecute marginalized peoples because they are easy targets for your conviction record, and you profit off of their pain. You have NEVER prosecuted one of your own. You have NOT ONCE held the dozens of officers that have killed 23 community members in the last three years accountable for their actions. EVEN WHEN THEY WERE SHOT IN THE BACK.
You are not fair. You are not independent. You are not a victim. You are simply a fraud Schubert. Justice lives only for those who can afford your bribery, but a new day is coming and we aren’t offering you a damn thing. Cry a river of tears for the protestors disrupting your work. Put up another fence, by all means, lock yourself up in that great white tower—because we are here for the long-haul to dismantle you and every parasite like you brick by brick.
