I made a mistake today. I watched the Aboriginal-themed documentary, "Utopia." While I understand that Australia has instituted a reconciliation action plan, I cannot visit that country. In 2012, things were 1000 times worse for those Black people than it was for us in...1/4
...the US. I have always believed that we cannot expect much progress in the #BlackLivesMatter movement unless we simultaneously address what is happening with our Indigenous people, both at home and abroad. The heinous crimes committed by white supremacists didn't begin...2/4
...with us, it began in 1492. White supremacists created and began perfecting their demonic tendencies of rape, murder, imprisonment, and genocide long before they kidnapped, subjugated, and enslaved our African ancestors. "Utopia" upset me so much, I was shaking with rage!! 3/4

“.@Pornhub stands in solidarity against racism...”

Here’s Pornhub making money off racism:

“Black Asses matter”

Don’t let the vultures at #Pornhub exploit women and #BlackLivesMatter

If @Pornhub wants to “stand in solidarity against racism” they could start by not referring to a black women as a “hood bitch”

.@Pornhub could stop referring to black men as “bulls” if they suddenly want to “stand in solidarity against racism”

The protests are working, in so many ways. Shall we count the ways? Please add to this.

1. Justice: The lead killer charged, then all 4 charged and charges increased.

2. Politics: Klobuchar will not be the Running-Mate; Ferguson has a black woman mayor; Steven King is over.
3. The public conversation has shifted. Defunding is on the agenda. All 50 states have seen rallies. Mainline white churches finally speaking out. The power elite looks split.
4. Massive organizing, especially black young people.
5. Politicians and businesses in bargaining mode
Each day more victories. Please add.

Solidarity to people marching across the US in support of George Floyd & #BlackLivesMatter.

In no just society would it take this to hold police accountable. We are right to be outraged.

We must also channel that fury & grief at similar injustices happening every day at home.
At least 432 First Nations people have died in custody since the 1991 Royal Commission into Deaths in Custody.

Not 1 police officer has been convicted.

Nearly thirty years later, we’re still calling for: decriminalisation of minor offences like fine default, making prison a last resort, funding for culturally sensitive health & mental health services & implementation of audits to track gov progress.
