    Hey y'all, it's Emancipation Day (August 1, the anniversary of the day slavery was abolished in Britain and therefore their colonies, like Canada)

    There's a motion to acknowledge it federally, but it's been recognized provincially by Ontario since 2008

    This is a pretty good opinion piece on being Black in Canada in this time, and how white allyship is lacking as momentum slows

    obama wants you to turn out to vote but he doesn't want to actually do anything for you beyond the bare minimum and he's mad that you won't just go along with it

    the democrat theory of politics is that voting is about personal responsibility. as a competent adult it's your duty to vote democrat and failure to do so is a sign of moral and intellectual weakness which must be corrected through re-education programs, if not actual force. they don't owe you anything - you owe them fealty like a medieval lord and you should be grateful for their scraps

    the republican theory of politics is of course "hell yeah dude whatever goes". complete mystery why they win all the time

    the massive crying-shame injustice at the bottom of all of this is the fact that the main impediment to institutional treatment of large numbers of people like full-fledged human beings is average white folks being just incapable of fuckin' caring for long enough to make a difference. if we cared near as much about systemic racism as we do about paying 3% less tax over the first hundred grand the authorities would have no choice but to do shit about it

    the shit MLK was saying half a goddamn century ago is just as relevant now as it was then and it's indefensible

    Fun Fact:

    In Upper Canada the Act Against Slavery was passed in 1793. It was put forward by Lieutenant-General John Simcoe, who saw a slave woman being violently forced back to the United States and thought that sucked.

    The act itself also kind of sucked, because the slave owners in the legislative assembly demanded that if there were to be no more slaves imported, then they should, at the very least, be able to keep the slaves they did have until those slaves died.

    Fun fact about John Simcoe:

    About four years after passing The Act Against Slavery, he went down to Haiti fight the revolutionaries in an attempt to take the island for the British who would then, presumably, set up slave operated sugar plantations for themselves.

    As someone whose career is based in the 18th century, you learn really quickly that white people fucking suck.

    Almost every "founding father" is evil. And I'm being generous with the 'almost'.

    Portland sheriffs just assaulted a crowd- slashing tires, macing and beating people, many of whom they did not even attempt to arrest. They simply wanted to assault the protesters at the MCSO, and so they did.

    there was a whole thing back when those two native kids got the cops called on them during a university tour and he claimed they were pretendians because they weren't black enough and it just escalated from there.
