the mass, nonconsensual hysterectomies taking place in american concentration camps right now are the kinds of things that will be in a textbook one day. they’ll ask why americans let these atrocities happen. why we looked the other way during a genocide.
these are people fleeing economic & political turmoil created by US foreign policy. they are just looking for a safe place to live their lives. instead we've locked them in cages & allowed a monster to tear out their wombs.

the US has an incredibly long & dark history of sterilizing women of color - NC was still sterilizing people deemed to be unfit into the 70s! 1/3 of puerto rican woman of childbearing age in the 60s had been sterilized, native american woman as young as ELEVEN were sterilized...
but there is something uniquely dark about bringing back a practice we outlawed 50 years ago and doing it to people being held against their will in secret jails that the government will not allow independent human rights inspections of. it does not bode well.

i anticipate seeing some high-quality reaction gifs of this man's face as he listened to the president tell him that 6 months ago was the greatest moment in american history for black people Image
i don't have any of the subscription services that would grant me access to this live news content so i'm watching a bootlegged stream that some racist gamer is yelling over. it's not enhancing the experience.

there are so many parties to this lawsuit that getting everyone on a conference call is always a maddening ordeal. no matter how many times i have listened in on the same parties trying to do this, it always feels like everyone's first ever conference call. can you hear me now?
i heard many familiar voices checking in, but i'm not sure if we have cantwell dialed in from the strafford county jail
