We swung by Riverfront Park where there’s a bake sale to raise funds to help people affected by the wildfires. The event was organized by “patriots against racism,” mainly Epilogue Kitchen which has been involved in #BLM organizing. #Oregonfires #santiamfires #oregon #wildfire
The bake sale sold out after 1.5 hours. They are still handing out free masks & anti-racism info, plus registering people to vote. 100% of the proceeds will go to help with wildfire relief. #oregon #salemoregon #santiamfire #oregonfires #wildfire #oregonwildfires #wildfirerelief Image
Approximately 15 people participated in a “[bike] ride for change.” They flew BLM flags and biked around the park. The event was organized in conjunction with the bake sale, by Rian Gayle, a Black, Deaf community leader. #Salem #salemoregon #oregon #BLMprotests #salemor

FIXED THREAD DEEP DIVE INTO WHY WE NEED TO #ABOLISHTHEPOLICE . This is a (fixed) mega thread off everything I’ve had to learn and understand about #blacklivesmatter  , #blmprotests , #protesters, #acab , #SystemicRacism , #DefundingThePolice , #FirstTheyCame 1/x
Welcome to the knowledge that we didn’t have a police force until they were converted from runaway slave patrols after emancipation. It was founded to continue policing the black population legally into the Jim Crow law era after black people began to own property. 2/x
The ownership of property gives people certain rights to defend, protect and obey, behold CROP SHARES! Where you can legally work on a plot of land for money BUT don’t own it or have any executive rights over it. They have the same badge to this day. Systemic. 3/x

One speaker from the Reopen Oregon Rally is talking about the need to fight child sex trafficking & change laws so that perpetrators serve more serious sentences for child sexual abuse both online & in person. #Salem #SalemProtest #salemoregon #oregon #salemprotests #SalemOR Image

Rian Gayle, a Deaf, Black advocate, is now presenting. He is discussing racism and ableism in the police force. #Salem #SalemProtest #salemoregon #oregon #salemprotests #SalemOR #oregonprotests #blmprotests
#clypiancoverage Image
Gayle is discussing how officers fail to handle disabilities appropriately. He said that they are required to make accommodations for people with disabilities, however, often the officers fail to write back and forth with him, instead forcing Gayle to read their lips.
Gayle said that body cams are especially helpful in cases involving people with disabilities. He says that with auditory recordings there isn’t a proper record of conversations if the person is deaf. Body cams would record both what the officer said & what Gayle signed back.

“I remember it like it was yesterday. It happened a few years ago, but it’s still in my brain,” Tony Villaneda said about that incident. He also said that it was extremely traumatic. #Salem #SalemProtest #salemoregon #oregon #salemprotests #SalemOR #oregonprotests #blmprotests

Nice to see that the panelists are a mixture of later and earlier career neuroscientists!

I've been really struggling w #BlackLivesMatter

1. I support the *statement* SO deeply, bc I know that for centuries in 🇺🇸, the idea that Black lives *don't* matter has been institutionalized, enshrined in law. I'll affirm that Black Lives DO Matter till pigs fly.
2. I struggle w/ the anti-Zionism & anti-Semitism expressed by many of the @Blklivesmatter @Mvmnt4BlkLives leaders, & their refusal to 'cancel' Jew-haters like Farrakhan, & ppl who defend him/ make excuses for his Jew-hate.
3. I struggle w/ the anti-Semitic vandalism & assaults that have plagued some #BLMprotests & riots. I wish more #BLM leaders & leaders in Black communities (AHEM @NAACP) would condemn the Jew-hate that somehow finds a receptive home w/i strains of otherwise justified Black rage.
