Black Lives Matter.

Read up on some key BLM objectives here: https://blacklivesmatter.com/about/

Protests and the struggle are ongoing. We all know that trying to keep something in the news in this day and age is nigh impossible. This is particularly when we are trying to dismantle systems of oppression, racism, imperialism, and inequality in the USA and beyond. The revolution will not be televised etc.

Gough Whitlam, after being ousted from power for daring to attempt stymieing American and British interests in Australia, told us we must maintain our rage and enthusiasm. As Dr Cornel West said, You’re going to have to take a risk, you have to pay a cost, you’re going to have to cut against the grain. It’s not going to be fun, but there’ll be joy in that kind of struggle, joy in your intellectual courage exercise, joy in your moral and spiritual witness enacted even as you fall on your face.

Small point of housekeeping, let's not drown out the intent of this thread with talk about the GOP's coronavirus infection and the delicious schadenfreude therein. Feel free to make up your own thread to talk about that stuff and the looming USA election genreally.



Do what you can to help the movement. Send money, take to the street, volunteer your time, amplify black voices and/or change the minds of your friends and family.

This thread is for broadcasting BLM news, sharing praxis, as well commiserating and laughing with comrades.

Spoiler violent images and videos please, be careful about doxxing comrades; this is a public forum





help a fellow forumer meet their mental health care needs because USA healthcare sucks!

Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better
