we get to define the rules of our freedom and how we get there for ourselves. us, and no one else—word to spotify and “The Truth” by @pharoahemonch. https://t.co/f47Xj4jBGE

Quoted @JoelakaMaG

stop engaging with and encouraging the trolls. stop letting ego and our need to correct those who jump in the comments steer us away from the mission. they don’t want a conversation. they seek chaos.

This is a life lesson — on line and in person. https://t.co/XOMVZpEHKh

i am feeding peace, only. and sometimes, in order to feed peace, you need to start a fire somewhere...

just so we’re clear, “freedom of speech” does not include racist language and inciting violence against marginalized communities.

stop engaging with accounts like tomi lahren, charlie kirk, the girl who shit herself, candace owens, etc. etc. they need to be deplatformed, not amplified. if you engage with their tweets, even if it’s to express disagreement or hatred, you are amplifying them

Black people have every right to burn down a country they built for free

police “force”

so how are these places without cops on every corner surviving? well. those places are more like to have people with decent jobs, access to housing, quality schools. it turns out that when people have the tools they need to survive, we can rely less on punishment.

many people in america already exist in a world where police and prisons do not exist. go to any middle to upper class suburb in america. cops arent wandering the streets. people aren’t being arrested. neighbors aren’t being sent to prison. and generally everyone is....fine.

Quoted @ourobororoboruo

I originally wrote this last November for Foreign Policy, another more fleshed out essay with the same argument ran instead. But since the topic is still very relevant, I'm sharing this now. Please ignore the dated aspects of this 6 months old essay. 1/ https://t.co/yGJFEv2kiJ

"when they condemn protestor violence without recognizing the government, police’s disproportionally greater agency... they essentially put the onus on the protestors’ to deescalate police suppression through saintly behavior, even if they must sacrifice their own safety" https://t.co/i7DNpsrE5H

Again, police have murdered several people this month alone but the establishment only recognizes an alarming “level of violence” when property is destroyed. That’s the white capitalist ethos. That’s the ideology/power structure that has to be overthrown.

Love. Gratitude. Compassion. Discernment.

Quoted @tiarettee

Cover your face, cover your tattoos, take out any identifiable piercings, wear masks, cover your hair, turn your location off, make sure they cannot trace back to you when are looting/rioting/protesting. Protect yourself.

this is a poem... https://t.co/QfhSpzAJot

showing up, just as you are, is enough.
