We’ve been bringing you a lot of stories about Beckys and their hate for people of color. Well, this time Becky tried to go for the jugular and ended up purchasing a one-way ticket to Fadesville.
It all went down in Minneapolis as Black Lives Matter demonstrators gathered to protest the shooting of Thurman Blevins, a Black man shot and killed as he ran away from police.
Then along came Becky, who tried to walk through the group of protesters and just assumed they would step aside for her because of her greatness. Apparently, she was in a hurry to get home, but instead of being polite – which Beckys are rarely known to be – she decided to grab a hold of and rip a sign reading “Justice 4 June."
Unfortunately for the white woman, she didn’t know that she had just made a fade-inducing mistake and received the connector from the Black woman holding the sign.
Of course, Sign Ripping Sally then began to cry and ran to her buddy in blue to console her. “I just want to go home,” she said as she walked into his arms. “I didn’t do anything!”
Ma’am, you thought you didn’t do anything, but you let your white privilege think the sea of protesters would just part for you and when they didn’t you decided to rip the sign of a protester already fed up with white people, who didn’t immediately get out of your way. In turn, you caught a very valuable life lesson: fades will come to those who don’t wait.
