Pinned doot

its honestly insanely irresponsible that 13 reasons why is made and marketed to teens.

dankwraith said this already before but to hammer it home
the LAPD's budget is larger than the entire budget for north korea's military. NK has a population of 25 million. LA has a population of 3 million.

holy fucking shit someone poisoned donated water at Columbus protests with antifreeze

it'd be magical if *everyone* could be out on the streets protesting *every* night. but people need to rest and recuperate now and then

Show thread

CW META is either middle school drama or full blown racism

No in-between

Show thread

Stop having public hissy fits for personality differences.

If you don't like something and it isn't offensive, block and move on.

If you don't like something and it is dangerously offensive, say something, block and move on.

So much drama on this site that miraculously isn't someone being racist is because there's a personality clash

And instead of accepting it and moving on, it becomes a THING.

Grow the fuck up and move the fuck on

Show thread

"There is no 'black' or 'white', only people."

It's cute you think that, but you wanna tell that to the politicians making racist policies that kill us and empower others to kill us, the police killing us, the doctors and nurses killing us, the judges that it's okay to kill us, the jury who say killing us isn't murder, I mean, your opinion is irrelevant when there's institutional and cultural antiblackness that literally insists otherwise?

LAPD (and possibly other PDs, i dunno) is putting out PSAs asking you to report police brutality to them on a special hotline, dont FUCKING do that shit, if youre gonna call anyone call a lawyer

Stop Chasing BIPOC Off This Platform Because They Make You Self Reflect Challenge

stupid joke, cancel culture, conspiracy 

@poamsa nah, reality is that the language of "cancelling" people comes from women of color trying to hold people accountable, then white people misused it into meaninglessness like so many other bits of appropriated slang

Take A Moment 

Breath in deeply, let it out with a sigh. Relax any tense spots in your body. Put your focus to the base of your spine, feet, the parts connected to the ground. Imagine you are being cradled by the earth, protected. Imagine roots growing from your body down into the soil, reaching and spreading. Imagine how strong, how stable you are, so firmly rooted. Imagine being bathed in warm sun, held in place by your roots and the sun on your skin.

“Facing a slew of media requests asking about how protests might be a risk for COVID-19 transmission, a group of infectious disease experts at the University of Washington, with input from other colleagues, drafted a collective response. In an open letter published Sunday, they write that “protests against systemic racism, which fosters the disproportionate burden of COVID-19 on Black communities and also perpetuates police violence, must be supported.”
