Long before the #emergence of #socialmovements like #BlackLivesMatter and #BlackGirlMagic, and well before #IntersectionalFeminism became a focal point for #feminist #leaders, there existed #Black #artists, #poets, and #thinkers who knew that the #work wasn’t going to get done, unless someone got going.

Two years ago today, a jury acquitted vigilante bigot Kyle Rittenhouse of murder, and I wrote this poem.
DECENCY ON TRIAL
Many mourn the outcome of the Rittenhouse trial
Say he should be sentenced
For murder or manslaughter
For sure, some men were slaughtered
By a boy
Our country took the stand along with boy Kyle
We sat slumped and soiled
A putrid pile
Of steaming failures
Despair and inequity from a system so vile
Justice served from a pit toilet
Is still justice
Neck deep in status quo
A toxic breakdown
The death of our decency
Police county lines strategy ‘cruelly targets’ black youth in UK
Home Office approach to tackling drug operations is based on ‘racialised tropes’, says new study
This is exactly like white people wailing that #BlackLivesMatter inferred all lives did not matter and we all rolled our eyes and moved on.
#BlackLivesMatter wasn't just a protest chant, it was a fundamental shift in American society.
Everyone who supported #BlackLivesMatter deeply believes that all Black, Brown, Muslim, Indigenous lives matter. That the lives of every oppressed group in the world matters.
New review of history of Lloyd’s of London show that it provided insurance to the largest slave shipowners in the early 1800 and actively protested against the abolition of the slave trade across the British empire in 1807.

"As far as I am concerned they can burn this bitch to the ground."
-Kimberly Jones, "I am Not Dying with You Tonight".
Intro to this podcast. After George Floyd.
Entire speech is must hear.
Capitalism is inherently sectarian, divisive, and degrading. Particularly toward minority communities.
I always remember the conversations I had with my granpa as a lil kid.
' Jaden these mfs will always see you as a ngga, been that way last 400 fking years. Nuttin ya can do to change that. Just hold up ya head and prove those mfs wrong ' sum like dat.
He got a point same racist shit we got deal with erryday.
That why we have to shout out #BlackLivesMatter . Keep that shit alive y'all after George Floyd 👊🏾👊🏾
@TexasObserver @TheConversationUS The ethics of dissection basically mirrors that of other state institutions in the racist settler colony of USA. But it's just a little more obvious when medical students are commenting on how they were lied to & scarred by the knowledge that they contributed to the symbolic violence of using people's corpses without their consent. Everything happens as if there was an agreement between institutions that these poor, often black people don't matter as much as other people do. Saying #BlackLivesMatter means changing the situation so society and institutions act as if they actually agree with that statement.
Medical #graverobbing goes far beyond the borders of the USA, as well. My aunt tells me she had a real human skeleton that she took with her on the bus to and from medical school in a case. I just kinda muttered at the Thanksgiving dinner table that the skeleton was probably sold to the broker from somewhere in Asia, as India is one of the countries where historically a lot of medical skeletons came from. I have my doubts as to whether it was acquired ethically. I think, like with cocoa or coltan or other similar products, one has to assume that it wasn't ethical unless proven otherwise.
A dear friend is looking for some support for their family friend who lives in Nebraska, please sign and share widely!
"Our young family member is being unfairly incarcerated right now in Grand Island, Nebraska. Markeese Williams has not seen sunlight in 10months and is locked up with four other boys charged with a list of things he did not do. We need support on the ground in Grand Isle Nebraska and nationwide to ensure these boys do not get locked away."
Please, friends, it's already a little late. Could someone please send me $70 so I can sleep in a safe place? I don't want to continue on the street💔

Today in Labor History October 26, 1892: Ida B. Wells published “Southern Horrors: Lynch Law in All Its Phases,” which led to threats against her life, and the burning down of her newspaper’s headquarters in Memphis. Wells, who was born into slavery, was a journalist, educator, feminist, and early Civil Rights leader who helped found the NAACP.
Please friends help me share my post, I want to reach more people so they can help me, I just hope that good-hearted people can do it, thank you for what you can do🙏🏼

Moments later a bulldozer was rolled up to the edge of the garden. Word quickly spread among the local community that the garden was about to be demolished.
A crowd rapidly grew to nearly 100 community members who all showed up in a matter of minutes.

A Black Floridian man who wrongfully served 16 years in prison for a robbery he did not commit was freed and compensated by the state after the Florida Innocence Project found evidence that cleared his name.
He was murdered by police at a traffic stop in Georgia this week for "not complying" with orders when he was told he was under arrest.
When we say #BlackLivesMatter, we mean people like Leonard Alan Cure deserve to live.

On October 16th, 1859, the abolitionist John Brown and 21 others led a raid on an arsenal in order to gather weapons to start a slave revolt in southern US states. Although the raid failed, its influence was felt far and wide. It contributed to the growing disunion of the US, leading to the civil war and the abolishment of slavery.
Do you know where this raid took place?

I want you to know you have my support for making careful, intelligent and well founded arguements to explain this issue.
I stand alongside you to fight #racism in whatever guise.
A person such as Cirdan, claiming to fight capitalism, that doesn't also understand & fight racism, does not understand how capitalism functions.
