“But under communism, we wouldn’t own anything!”

You’re still paying off the mortgage on your house, you needed a bank loan to get your car, and you’re paying a subscription to watch movies, listen to music, and use software.

You don’t own anything under capitalism anyway.

July 4 is coming up and also a periodic reminder that the US is a genocidal manipulative settler state interested in continuing the subjugation of Black people so think twice about celebrating the birth of this nation.

white people arguing FOR the use of slurs "in a non-slur way" just wanna use slurs and shouldn't be trusted

ever remember how the night before the first day of the Black Panthers' free breakfast program in Chicago the cops broke into the church where they were keeping the food, smashed it on the floor, and pissed on it?

sometimes "bastard" feels way too mild, tbh

A reminder about fat people:

*Fat people are loveable
*Fat people are desirable
*Fat people are sexual (if they want to be)
*Fat people are allowed to eat whatever the hell they want
*Fat people are allowed to show their tummy and thighs and however much skin they want
*Fat people dont have to show any skin they dont want either!

And above all:
*Fat people don't owe you a fucking thing. Not an explanation, not a reason, not a performance to fit ourselves into some model fat that you can with Good or Bad
*I love fat people

the end, good day

Lincoln and slavery 

In short: Lincoln freed slaves to break the back of the South, and it worked. Without freed Black people fighting, recruiting and withdrawing their labor power, the Union could not have won as early as they did, and perhaps wouldn't have won at all.

The slaves freed the slaves, and they won the war. Lincoln was just the beneficiary of the shift in power they enabled.

vanguardism / "black leaders" on TV 

(TL;DR just reiterating what other Black people have already said about the "black leaders" on TV but drawing a connection between them and vanguardist leftists)

Vanguardism is the opposite of solidarity, its that patronizing person who suddenly shows up and tries to take control of the movement for their own goals which they claim were yours all along (or dismiss your goals entirely). Its that elitist notion that the people on the streets right now don't really know what they're doing and that they need to be ordered around. The classic authoritarian communist bullshit many of us have experienced in person. Sound familiar?

In that sense the people showing up on TV and claiming to be "black leaders" and then saying stuff like "what we REALLY MEAN is not abolish, just defund, and these two things are different, and defund actually means minor reforms that have already been proven to do jack shit" are essentially liberals practicing a reactionary form of vanguardism in an even more cowardly form (as if the typical left version wasn't bad enough).

The movement speaks for itself, by selecting a figurehead the establishment has chosen not to listen, they do this consciously. They know our demands, they are printed everywhere, they're online day and night, on our signs in the broadcasts and on twitter, they aren't blind. Don't fall for the vanguardist trap and let these self-appointed "leaders" water down the demands, because as Boots-Riley said at the Juneteenth Oakland event, "we create the wealth, wealth is power, we have the ability to withold that power". And as soon as that becomes clear, the establishment knows exactly what demands it has to actually address.

We're shutting down the ports and workplaces, we're tearing down the monuments to slavery and colonialism, and we're making the cops run home with their tails between their legs. Direct action is what gets the goods.

"reform the police" 

The city of Albuquerque has been a test case for police reform since the cops murdered James Boyd in 2014. The DOJ stepped in, fired many of the officers, and has forced the APD to submit to federal oversight and adopt new accountability policies for the past six years. None of it has worked.

Valente Acosta-Bustillos was killed 3 months ago.

Max Mitnik was killed 2 weeks ago.

Clifton White has spent all month in jail for protesting.

All this time we've remained one of the worst places in the country for police shootings. Nothing has changed. I hope you'll think of ABQ when people urge you to push for reforms and half measures instead of abolition.

whenever it comes to identities you dont understand and you want to understand, its bad to come out of the gate with "this thing doesnt make any sense to me, how can you POSSIBLY be a he/him lesbian, he/him are MALE pronouns." because youre making it clear to whoever youre speaking to that youre coming not from a place of wanting to learn but instead from a place of reactionary confusion.

kill the part of your brain that gets defensive or frustrated when you learn about things that you find hard to understand
