i love how things that working class people of color been doing 5eva get discovered by white hipsters as “revelations.”

meanwhile we don’t get no credit for nothin.

reminds me of the whole bike to work movement. we BEEN biking/walking/riding buses because…

People in poverty of all skin tones use bikes over cars. Take china for example where the majority of people ride bikes over driving cars.

I disagree with your post because even black people don’t deserve credit for the idea, many races deserve credit for the idea. It’s not a black racial issue, its a 99% slash first world capitalism issue.

How many billion people in Inda do you think ride bikes because of poverty. Do they get credit too? If you are, then fine I am in agreement with you.

who said this was a black racial issue? i said people of color.  perhaps you missed that.

i used the bike to work movement as an example, and you’ve missed the point entirely.  biking to work/riding buses is something poor POC have been doing FOREVER. yet we aren’t included in these “new” green movements.  yes, poor people of color in other countries, i.e. Chinese, Indian, as well as American POC who are impoverished and bike are green. like i said, we BEEN doing these things.  as i also said, activism is only considered activism when you are privileged enough to make choices.  yet, our existence is activism.

this was one example in a milieu of examples.  and, your response was still derailing.  

i’m done with this though.
