Gonna lose part of my day listening to a lawyer arguing on behalf of rich, white men getting to decide when their daughters can have an abortion while making absolutely sure that no other class gets to make the decision.
I cannot wait for the next season of The Expanse.
Do not let those liars spin this yarn to you or make this about the "mainstream media" sticking with their narrative. The Andrew Coffee case is another Breonna Taylor, not some evidence that racism is dead and gone.
I think some people out there are trying to claim that this case in some way exonerates the accusations of racism in Rittenhouse's trial, but other than sharing the same defense, these cases have nothing in common. The more you dig into those details the more clear it is exactly how differently Andrew Coffee was treated than Kyle Rittenhouse to be here.
"“Getting chased by a police helicopter, that’s not fun. … But you know what scares me more?” she said. “I just think back to that New Year’s Eve, when I thought I was going to die in a fire, caused by climate change. And that’s the barest glimpse of what’s going to happen.”"
In Vermont the state police lied about not being able to trace the phone numbers of people who were calling and threatening election officials.
If you read just a little into it this is really the ongoing story of the state siding with Republicans and white supremacists in order to embolden their racist agenda and keep them in power. This is what we're talking about when we say systemic racism and what you guys should be talking about when you talk about the deep state.
When Republicans say they don't want to teach something because it creates a "victim mentality" they frame this as if it's good for the victim. What they really mean is that they don't want victims to know that they have been wronged so that they don't seek justice. What they don't want is accountability for their crimes, which a person who knows they've been a victim would naturally seek.
Said a different way they don't want the victims to demand their stolen property back.
Said a different way they don't want the rapist prosecuted for their crimes.
They want silent, ignorant victims so they can violate them again and again without accountability.
We come here in search of a place to express our thoughts outside of the direct control and surveillance of unaccountable, mega-corporations. There is no common theme that binds us other than these being the bonds we've chosen rather than those that have been chosen for us.
