Watched the tape of trans women of color in Toronto being both arrested and disrespected by white trans people; glad to see some in community rising to defend them.

I support the efforts in Toronto, and more widely in Ontario, Canada, and beyond, to forever change #TDOR events.
I commend Abuzar Chaudhary and other members of Toronto community for enduring arrest on behalf of trans women of color and Black trans women specifically. No one supports folks shouting and getting arrested to bring change, until they do.
I'm working on this too, and it's hard. Can I really be friend or true accomplice to white people who can't hear me scream without joining in, or someway leaning away from their white fragility response to throw hands over ears and continue to ignore the roar of #Blackpain?

3 of them killed 30 people. 3 of them killed no one. Look at the differences in the mugshots. LOOK!

This is why communities, especially of color, feel unsafe around cops.

The system is RACIST.

THIS IS WHY WE KNEEL

WHITE cops being kicked out of an Arizona Starbucks because customers didn’t feel safe.
I stand behind Starbucks for taking such actions.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.

As a Black man who was kicked out of a coffee shop in 2015 (not Starbucks but The Elmwood Cafe in Berkeley, CA) I have some thoughts. When I was kicked out, I was nervous they might call the cops. But they didn't. Probably because I was with my wife & her white skin. 1/
(If you don't know the story of my getting kicked out of The Elmwood Cafe in Berkeley California, I told the story on @ThisAmerLife a couple months later. You can listen here.) But here I sit 3 years later & NOTHING has changed... 1/2 thisamericanlife.org/557/birds-bees…
After it happened, me, the owner & some activists had a community meeting. The owner promised to end implicit bias in his cafe, the stores on his block, the neighborhood, the city then I guess the galaxy. Here's the website he built for it laying fallow. implicitbiastraining.com
