during a BLM protest in 2014, I was called in for starting a chant, and by how listening to that criticism and accepting it is valid I came to the understanding that by doing so I was speaking over directly-impacted people. I’m grateful someone said something to me, and I stopped doing that at BLM protests. show up, but don’t take over.

white leftists, please be mindful of this if you go to protests.

D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep

Minnesota Freedom Fund does not have a Venmo. If you see anything about donating to MFF's Venmo, that's fake

MFF is recommending these other crowdfunds, as apparently they're overwhelmed by donations themselves

"here's the thing: laws? are just threats, made by the dominant socio-economic ethnic group in a given nation. it's just a promise of violence that's enacted, and police are basically an occupying military. you know what I mean? you kids wanna make some bacon??"

rambling about current events in america 

i'm seeing a lot less hand wringing about property damage this go round and honestly, i think to a large extent people have figured out the game. you know the cops arent gonna investigate themselves. the courts never do anything. the politicians wont do anything. so whats left? burning down the precinct is basically the only way to cut the gordian knot

Right now, the best organizations to follow and support are the ones we’ve seen already—the MN Bail Fund and other PoC-led organizations that it’s now directing people towards. When charges start coming down, and prosecution begins, you should look for updates from the National Lawyers Guild (nlg.org), specifically its MN branch, as they generally signal boost funds for the defense of activists while also often providing legal services themselves.

anyways. if recent events are making you itch to get involved in real revolutionary works, be sure to read up on security culture so you can keep your comrades and yourself safe

did you know: you don't need to be a level 4 antifa super solider to attend public demonstrations in your area.

in fact, showing up to voice your support as a non-descript average white person is useful. cops may look at POC & black bloc kids and see potential targets. but when they look at average white people, they see potential lawsuits. put that shit to work.

if you have never attended a demonstration please consider the value your voice and presence can contribute now (if you're able).

Google memories (1/x) 

y'all going to laugh, but I really believed it. I drank the kool-aid. this was the mid-00s, a tech company with a motto "don't be evil" still felt daring rather than cringe – for an alienated techie like past me, at least; my politically aware friends tried to warn me; but I didn't realise that Google leveraged its fine-tuned advertising machinery also for recruiting, and I swallowed the whole thing.

I think I'll only feel like socialism has a chance when a mainstream rightwing politician tries to red-bait and then gets booed instantly--in other words, that instead of having to explain ourselves or debate them, the public already knows its bullshit and thus we don't have to waste our energy on that.

A request to parents of young (or youngish) children 

Please encourage your kids’ interests. Don’t ask them, “How are you going to make money/support yourself with that?” Don’t make them think of their interests in binary terms of bread winning activities vs non-bread winning activities.

You never know what they will end up doing, and if you stifle them, they will never know if the interest you kept questioning could have flourished AND paid their bills.
