Tomorrow at 2:30 PM EST - you don’t want to miss this! https://t.co/1McEkh3FrN

And before this turns into white Jewish people saying “well I personally feel disgusted by this.” I get it - yes you as individuals- but I haven’t seen a collective outcry and y’all have to acknowledge that

Can someone post links of the white Jewish community outrage about Jessica Krug formerly known as Jessica La Bombalera? I just want to know if they can show solidarity or is that just a requirement for when one of us fucks up? https://t.co/r8neh4TKRd

The only reason Donald Trump is concerned about anyone’s birthplace is because he wants to hide the fact his entire lineage is from Hades.

Good morning to everyone except men who still use the word “females.” 🌈

Watch what happens as your federal government continues to fail you. When the funding of community programs gets cut who will fill in those services? Cops? Defund the police and militarization in general- otherwise your small BLM gains will all be for nothing.

I’m good at putting out fires, but I’ve never been taught how to save myself.

It's about speaking up for the voiceless. If prioritizing the mental and emotional growth of oppressors is your reason for intervening, you've already lost. Fuck them. It's not about them. It's not about you, either. It never was.

We don't care if racists become better people. The goal should be advocating for and defending the oppressed. Anti-racism work isn't about changing the minds of racists. It's about changing the environments that allow them to practice their racism freely.

The reason you're arguing with racists, confronting Nazis, challenging your xenophobic grandma, and ruining Thanksgiving dinner is to uplift and center the voices of the marginalized and situationally make being a racist as uncomfortable as being a person of color.

I've argued with thousands of racists and maybe changed one or two minds.

When we debate and argue with racists with the intent of saving them from themselves and/or changing their minds, we're centering the oppressors and not the oppressed. You can't "reason" away hatred for someone else's identity. You can't "logic" away bigotry.

Can 'allies' please stop trying to "get through" to racists and change their minds? When y'all challenge racists it shouldn't be with the purpose of getting them on board with not being pieces of shit. That's not why we confront white supremacy.

Violence is the only way, of course No votes. No marching. No spots on cable news. No high fashion magazine cover stories. No hashtags. No panels. None of that is going to bring about the liberation Black folks deserve.

I absolutely hate the smile that white people who don’t know you give you walking down the street to let you know that they’re a sanctuary “safe” white.
