The #AntiBlack community showing up for Black Lives in Portland by posturing white candidates is everything Portlandia and nothing less than we expected #ThisIsWhitelandia protecting the plantation 💁🏾‍♀️
Witnessing the platform building of orgs and individuals who have alienated our community taking center stage after #GeorgeFloyds murder these past few months has provided much insight into the violent use of Black pain to build franchise.
Just #StopKillingUs that’s all we need not your promises... not your empathy just end the violence and stop being racist. Black people don’t have to be taught how to be Americans we know it well. #justathought
