We are prepared for slander, lie, and slur. We are prepared for the increasing frequency and severity of social pressure, police brutality, violence, and immoral law—all aimed at suppressing, punishing, intimidating, and eradicating people of color. We understand that it will get worse, yet, before it gets better.
We are prepared for a continued assault at the hands of the dominant culture and its devotees, as it increasingly perceives the dissolution of its own reality, relevance, and control in determining the standards of meaning, power, truth, and beauty. The element of surprise will, at least, not be a factor in the extent of white supremacy’s continued impact upon our psyches and communities.
We are fully prepared for this struggle that has lasted, and will last, many generations.
We are prepared to stand with each other, even when all the desperate forces that collude and conspire to keep us weak and scattered shriek their propaganda into our midst.
We are prepared to work as long as is needed.
We are not afraid to fight. We embrace the chance to clash honestly with those who would make the mistake of underestimating our commitment.
We advance our ground with confidence, joy, and pride.
We are not taken by surprise.
