of course. i wouldn’t just mention a huge cat painting and not share.
Radical feminist here. Hey.
I also have a "real" blog over here, and I write for Liberation Collective too.
some updates, since i’ve been rather absent this summer.
after lunch today, i walked upstairs at work, and the santigold song “disparate youth” inexplicably started playing from a black beats pill as i walked down the hall.
yesterday i bought some things at a store that totaled $6.66.
last week my mom said i could have a huge painting of a cat that was in our family room as a kid.
this summer i had to take a lot of muscle relaxers for almost constant migraines.
how are you all? i feel out of the loop.
…How dare people preach and condescend to these people and tell them not to loot, not to riot? Yes, those are destructive forms of anger, but frankly I would rather these people take their anger out on property and products rather than on other people.
No, I don’t support looting. But I question a society that always sees the product of the provocation and never the provocation itself. I question a society that values property over black life. But I know that our particular system of law was conceived on the founding premise that black lives are white property…
Nothing makes white people more uncomfortable than black anger. But nothing is more threatening to black people on a systemic level than white anger. It won’t show up in mass killings. It will show up in overpolicing, mass incarceration, the gutting of the social safety net, and the occasional dead black kid. Of late, though, these killings have been far more than occasional. We should sit up and pay attention to where this trail of black bodies leads us…. Brittney Cooper (via note-a-bear)
