REMEMBER THE SCRIPT (25 WORDS) ~ The Script ~ "WHY DID YOU PULL ME OVER?" "I'M NOT DISCUSSING MY DAY" "AM I BEING DETAINED OR AM I FREE TO GO?" If detained you say, "I INVOKE THE 5TH!" Then you SHUT THE FUCK UP! ™ #INVOKETHE5TH
Just this morning a fellow non-Black person of color tried to challenge a repost in my stories about anti-blackness (with some really shitty gaslighting DMs) with “what about me” bullshit trying to do what we non-black people of color have been and keep doing: trying to steal the mic from black people once they’ve done the heavy lifting and work and then wedge our way in and say, “we all struggle together!” NO! Anti-blackness is a powerful oppressive structure that is coupled with white supremacy and non-black people of color often benefit from it and our relative proximity to whiteness. It is in all of our communities and often replicates the external white supremacist rhetoric, exclusion, and other manifestations - and if you don’t see it, look harder and listen up to black people’s voices telling you! And white (and white-mixed, and white-passing folks) of course need to do the work too! No excuses 🚫too many folks out here more interested in justifying their thievery and complicity and inaction rather than listening and working to learn and grow and reflect and be better and advocate and to fight and help resist and destroy continuing systems and manifestations of anti-blackness • no "I don't see color" no "it's appreciation" no "I have black friends" no "I'm not white though" no "I'm not doing it to be racist" no "that's not my issue" no "don't talk about it, you're being divisive" no "it's not just for black people" no • #domore#speakup#support#fight#demand#blacklivesmatter#blm#justice#equality#reparations#reflection#americanlegacy#injustice#inequality#brutality#fakeallies#privilege#complicity#ignorance#oppression#appropriation#theft EDIT: you can do the work for yourself by listening to black voices: LISTENING and not centering yourself.... the #meandwhitesupremacy by Layla F. Saad workbook is free, downloadable and an excellent place for you to start if you are serious about addressing it within yourself!
The next time you hear someone complain about the NHS or its staff remind them that there are people who are sick in these conditions and are still greatful to be able to access basic health care.... only negative is the NHS doesn't issue hospital chicken friends.... #dontbethatguy#shutthefuckup#backpackwanker#whynochicken
My dude was getting it!!!!! I freakin love the damn sequins and the matching braids! I want that shirt! The opera was fucking amazing; the singers were everything, and the dude who played Masetto was hot! I mos def have to save for better seats tho, because in the family circle (nosebleeds) people did not know how to shut the fuck up. The guy next to me kept doing this weird breathing thing and other weird shit. His gf obviously must be used to it but how, sway?! Also, this goes for movies and any other live performance. If you feel you need to talk or look at your phone, STAY THE FUCK HOME! If anyone wanted to hear you, you’d be the one on the stage/screen. I need to save for floor seats. I wanna see Porgy and Bess this season! #opera#shutthefuckup#silentdisco#lincolncenter#mozart#dongiovanni#singer#sanger#amazing yaaasss #music#dancing#goodtimes
