fyi: the Black Lives Matter Foundation is not affiliated with the broader mofement, and is based around “unity with the police department” https://mashable.com/article/black-lives-matter-foundation-scam/
this is distinct from the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, which does appear to actually be affiliated
I love that when 8 officers resign from the Atlanta PD, and 7 officers quit from the Minneapolis PD, it becomes a national news story.
Every time I see these all I think is “good.”
I don’t care if they are resigning because they got their feelings hurt, or they feel unappreciated or...whatever. Cop feelings do not matter to me. Less cops matters to me.
I hope they all feel like shit and quit. I will take 100 cops resigning for the wrong reasons over 99 cops resigning for the right ones.
hey white queers
this rollback of rights in the US sucks a lot. remember that Black folks will be hardest hit by it. Black Lives Still Matter.
remember that we're under a kyriarchy. oppression is multifaceted, we can contribute to oppression even while being oppressed.
what i'm saying, white queer friends, is that we can't focus only on our own suffering right now, because we'll get nowhere on our own.
this whole thing needs to come down and we're making ACTUAL PROGRESS
White queer people: imagine if a bunch of cishet people started texting you saying "hey I know it's Pride month so I'm finally reading queer theory, wait am I allowed to say that? Hey, what does 'FTM' mean? What is a binder? Vers is short for Versace, right? Hey are you ok? I mean it, you can tell me. If not, I posted a rainbow on Instagram, that's good, right?" That would be really fucking annoying in a very short span of time, and it would do you no good.
So, don't be that person to others.
