Petition: LA's DA Lacey needs to start prosecuting killer cops

The petition: bit.ly/BLMLA

 



The comment I just made after signing the petition:

In the history of LA policing there has never been as much right to murder Black men, women and children by police of ANY COLOR. It's important to identify that the anti-Blackness of LAPD is not just white, it's also Latino, it's South Asian, it's also in some sad cases I may or may not be related to Black...but that doesn't mean we can't all come out the other side of this. First step? #FireBeck and have DA Lacey start prosecuting police officers who shoot community residents. Next step start listening to Black Lives Matter: Los Angeles, and start attending events they encourage you to attend and start changing the policies they recommend you do. All while overhauling and changing from top to bottom the way LAPD polices, the community input it needs to stop ignoring and the amazing officers it needs to re-train in diversity and inclusion that's representative of an understanding of anti-Blackness, white supremacy and policings role in upholding it. Then? I feel like we might be able to really start talking about getting to space and saving the galaxy, but that's just me. Start with the basics first? #FireBeck.

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

No Apologies for Queer White Tears - 2016 BlaQOUT Keynote

No Apologies for Queer White Tears By Faith Cheltenham Delivered as a keynote address to the 2016 BlaQOUT Conference at UC Riverside on April 9th, 2016.
Black girl drinking White People Tears Gif White tears is a term that has a startling effect on white folks. Developed over time to describe the phenomenon of white people being upset at the very act of discussing race, it’s evolved into a funny yet, extremely effective way to describe white people’s discomfort in discussing the very racism they perpetuate.
One of the earliest articles available online about white tears written by a person of color is the 2007 College Student Affairs Journal article “When White Women Cry: How White Women’s Tears Oppress Women of Color” by Mamta Motwani Accapadi. In the article, Accapadi describes a case study of a white woman bursting into tears when being pressed by a woman of color about diversity resources at the college that employs them both. Instead of working on the issues affecting students, the c…
