Twitter: LOOK AT HIM
This dude and his brother are abusers of native women, multiple women have come forward (thats what the links are), not only that but they promote the blood quantum theory, the idea that all native tribes are interchangeable and other racist ideals. These men do not deserve platforms.
I know we’re all committed to the joke/meme that 2020 is a hell year, because we’ve been doing that joke for many years now and we’re super attached to the notion that years come in discrete packages that can be anthropomorphized or whatever. We like to be cute like that.
But the black lives matter uprisings are good news. They are not evidence that something is wrong with 2020 or with us in 2020. They are evidence of the opposite - that people in 2020 have hearts and souls that are willing and able to resist longstanding injustice and imagine a better future.
We may yet be lucky enough to look back on 2020 as the beginning of the end of a lot of bullshit.
Same. And one of the beautiful.tbings is that it’s not just the United States. There have been vigils, protests, memorials, and uprisings around the world.
