Do not come at me

Do not come at me

Do not come at me with your racist anger, resentment, bitterness, cleverly disguised as engaged debate to free you of your part.

The part you have played every day, in benefitting from a society designed FOR you, with you, by you, from the very start

Do not come at me with your rhetorical discussions and feigned expertise on oppressions you have never experienced

Do not come at me

Do not come at me

Do not come at me with your oppression olympics used as some sort of pass to tell me how you THINK it feels to be of colour

Do not come at me

Do not come at me

Do not come at me, turning it around, in a carefully designed choreography of gaslighting and minimising

Do not come at me

Do not come at me

Do not come at me telling me I have no right to state my experience from your safe patriarchal white ivory tower

Do not come at me

Do not come at me

Do not come at me with your colonial language of oppression to silence my voice which has somehow released itself from the shackles of your margins

Do not come at me

Do not come at me

Do not come at me with your limited exposures to generalise an entire people who you think speak to my “experience”, placing yourself as an authority on all that I am

Do not come at me

Do not come at me to punish me for colonial non compliance, through slanderous attacks, or reshape my words back at me as though they never left my mouth.

Do not come at me

Do not come at me

Do not come at me with your flawed and long outdated colonial logic which expects me to ‘know my place’ as the ideologically colonised self hating Brown woman

Do not come at me

Do not come at me

I challenge your sense of entitlement and refute your hierarchy. I stand up, fist raised, head high, voice clear, against your delusional sense of superior self, your white supremacy, your patriarchy.

Check your privilege
