“Until we face the fact that we are our own worst enemies, nothing is gonna change!” a black woman said on this week’s Rush Limbaugh Show, referring to the recent “civil unrest” of protests that erupted nationwide attributing white supremacy, police and the government as the culprits of “black oppression,” reported by The Blaze.
The female who went by the name Joyce from Houston expressed the perspective on the podcast show on Thursday. The conversation initiated with Joyce believing that the former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was not treated with adequate fairness in the latest trial. However, she approved that the officer should be charged for the death of George Floyd.
The trial wrapped up four days ago, on April 20, with the judge degreed Chauvin with all the charges of murder and manslaughter. The incident occurred when Floyd died after roughly 9 minutes of having the police’s knee on his shoulder blade.
Joyce then proceeded with her message for the people from the black community when she exclaimed that she was fed up with the ‘systematic racism,’ a conception popular among Americans of black skin color. She suggested that black people stop blaming others and look to themselves for the unfair treatment they have been experiencing.
“There are no organized conspiracies to keep blacks down. There are pockets of bigotry, for sure. But they’re not powerful enough to keep you down if you have some get-up-and-go about yourself,” she added.
Joyce gave some brief details on her dwelling place, where racism was a hot topic among residents, and it has been dubbed the sixth dangerous place in America. She clarified that the problems were not from the government or any officials but from the black people in the community themselves.
“I get so tired of telling my people, ‘The old, rich, white Republicans [are] not our problem. We are our problem’—and until we face the fact that we are our own worst enemies, nothing is gonna change!” she said.
Joyce pointed to her own congresswoman, Democratic Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, whom she said would definitely know Floyd, but not know many deceased Black lives in her district who were assaulted and murdered.
“Fake racism” was what Joyce mentioned as she remarked that Black Americans are excessively stressed and contend ing over.
“That’s not our problem. There’s no better place for us, and you’re gonna sit here and allow people to use you as pawns to mess up what’s best for you today,” she said, emphasizing that unless the black Americans decide to change, “there’s no better place for us,” Joyce said.
Regarding the police force, which several lawmakers are urging on reform in tribute to the black community, Joyce dismissed.
“There are few bad policemen, but basically, the policeman is out there to do a job to protect us. And I get so tired of, ‘Oh, they arrest more blacks than they do whites.’ Well, hell, we do more crime! So, what are they gonna do, just let us go?” the woman argued.
