Ashley Heidebrecht's video was so incredibly helpful to put together all the pieces of the previous videos. How these cards that have been laid down are not unrelated. On the contrary, they are all pieces of the paper house. And keeping that paper house from blowing over.
The most chilling part was when she said that the system isn't "dysfunctional, it's functioning" for who it was intended for. Originally, that was those of anglo-saxon decent then Wester European decent in general.
These ideas of superiority permeated into the culture at the time and for a long time, as it erected it's institutions. A culture that says that white is right and the need to maintain it justifies one to take the law into your own hands as they say fit.
This explains some of the reactions that we've seen. Anger, fear. Like the the recent incident where a Seattle woman called comedian Karlos Dillard the N-word then freaking out and crying saying
that she feels attacked as she was being filmed by him. She wasn't just over reacting. She really felt that she was being attacked, not physically obviously, but that something was at risk. She felt her power being threatened by someone, who by virtue of being, is the one infringing on her white authority, or her "white power" one could say. And that's just from passive-aggressive "Karens." This also explains why police aren't happy with these protests because they're not trying to defend and serve a city because they're maintaining law and order. They we not made with the intention to serve to people. In Boston is was to protect goods, literally they were just protecting sh*t. In the south the police was created with the intention to again protect their goods, they dehumanized black slaves which is why they would be branded with the slave owners last name, so that these people, and their children, and their children's children and so on, would never forget who owned them. The role of the police was not to protect the citizens. (This is fueling my internal arguments of defunding and dismantling the police...now I think it's an awesome idea.)
Honestly Ashley's video explains so much of the radical behavior we're seeing not just in Karens or the police force but with many white people. I had to watch Ashley's video a couple times to make sure I was able to digest it all. I recommend you do the same if needed.
