Please remember that racism is not just obvious hate crimes and slurs, it is very often "jokes", offhand comments, & small actions.
things like crossing the street when they see a POC, not attempting or making fun of ethnic names, dismissing someones struggles, etc
reminder that the black lives matter movement doesn’t stop just because george floyd’s murderers are finally being held accountable in a court. we need all police to be held accountable, we need our government to be held accountable, and we need change.
I mean, that’s cool & all. But if y’all care about being kind, inclusive, & diverse. Y’all should cut ties from the organization Autism Speaks speaks that continue to push harmful ideologies about autistic children with awful stigmas.
this is a very touchy topic for me.. but my cousin was arrested & taken into police custody in 2015, but on october 31st 2015 he was pronounced dead in his cell, they ruled it as suicide by hanging. yet my cousin had scratches all over his face when found..
So, Tuesday has passed, and we're still Black, so to everyone who wanted to play ally yesterday, I hope you keep the same energy for yourselves, your peers, your employers, and your families, because our oppression isn't a trend. This is a day-to-day reality. Understand that.
⚠️PSA: ⚠️ The U.S. gov. is currently passing a bill that literally LIMITS OUR FREEDOM OF SPEECH on the internet. A violation of our first amendment rights. No one has heard about this bc our gov. is keeping it quiet from the mass media so I can just get passed!!! (1/2)
