A friend of mine, older black woman, just told me that her white therapist, whom she'd been seeing for two years called and asked for "Help" on how to navigate all of these racial issues. She cancelled her next appointment and will never see him again
She should also file a complaint with the state licensure board.
The real tea is that even white people are not free in this country. If you can’t stand up against oppression without being beaten or massacred by state violence, then you‘re not free. If the price of your ticket is endorsing or enabling white supremacy, then you’re not free..
And, if necessary, the 10th Mountain, 82nd Airborne, 1st Cav, 3rd Infantry—whatever it takes to restore order. No quarter for insurrectionists, anarchists, rioters, and looters.
Hi Tom. Setting aside the questionable wisdom of implying that the US government is at war with its citizenry, many of whom are engaged in peaceful protests - as is their God-given right under the First Amendment - “no quarter” is specifically forbidden by the Hague Convention.
4 of the top 10 stories on Facebook today are about Trump declaring antifa a terrorist group. One is a feel-good story about a trucker cleaning up after vandals, another is about an officer calmly listening to protesters, one is about violence against law enforcement.
Well?! Which is it black people of Chicago?
1) Continue your protest for a chance to finally be seen as full human beings whose lives matter?
2) Or food for poor kids during a generational pandemic that's disproportionately leaving black folk unemployed if not killing you?
What does this signal? Obviously there are Republicans who want this Administration removed as much as Democrats and the Chinese. That has been known for some time but this indicates how far they are prepared to go. Why is the President such a threat to them all?
He’s a threat to us all because he’s a fascist white supremacist with a major personality disorder in the most powerful position in the world, Laura.
Young white punk kids, if you're out there breaking shit because it's fun, you are only helping the cops, giving them an excuse. Putting your skateboard through a window is stupid. Putting your body between protesters and danger is punk.
Your Fucking Elder

IF YOU TAKE PICTURES AT A PROTEST: DO NOT FORGET TO SCREENSHOT THE PICTURE AND POST THE SCREENSHOT INSTEAD. IT WIPES THE METADATA SO THEY CANT LOOK BACK AT THE PICTURES YOU POSTED AND ARREST YOU FOR BEING THERE. BY WIPING THE METADATA YOU ESSENTIALLY ERASE TIES TO YOUR CAMERA+
