Whatever happens today:
- Trump did not invent white supremacy or patriarchy.
- White supremacy and patriarchy will not end if Kavanaugh is not confirmed.
- Defy, disobey and disrupt white supremacy and patriarchy at every turn
- Make them fear you
My message is to white Americans who will spend today saying:
- “This isn’t the America I know” - it is and has been for a very long time and you should be asking why you just now paid attention. Where have you been?
To white American women who’ll spend today saying:
-“Roe v Wade! No more rapists in power!”
Rapists have been in power for centuries.Ask indigenous & Black women.Anti-choice legislation in several states already made abortion nearly impossible for many women of colour,poor women
So I ask again:
- where have you been?
- what are you going to do about it?
Defy, disobey and disrupt white supremacy and patriarchy at every turn. Make them fear you.
Head footsoldier of white supremacy and patriarchy: Sen. Susan Collins
Footsoldiers of white supremacy+ patriarchy:
- 53% of white women voters voted for Trump
- 62% of white women voters voted for Roy Moore.
- 43% of white women believe Kavanaugh vs 46% believe Blasey Ford: statistically indistinguishable
Fight white supremacy & patriarchy, regardless of what happens today.
- Fight it on Monday & every week after.
- If you’re a white American, it benefits you & favours you but fight it if you believe in justice & big words that begin with R (that are not “Republican”)
And if you’re wondering or complaining why I keep saying “white”: ‘People’ Aren’t Divided on #Kavanaugh’s Confirmation. White People Are.… via @TheRoot
