White Ppl Can't Get Cancelled: The Bezos You Know; The Hankinsons, Cosgroves and Mattinglys You Dont
And the Epsteins, the Michael Wolls, the Roger Stones, the Alexander Hamiltons, the David Starkeys, the Stephen Millers, the William Barrs, the Joe Biden's, the Tucker Carlsons, the Reed Hastings, Benjamin Netanyahus, Winston Churchills, FDRs, your non-profit executive director, maybe your partner, maybe you. There are so many names of white cis men who commit murder, spew anti-Black racism with impunity, collude with a white supremacist state to leverage the anti blackness inherent in our institutions--keeping Black people from access to capital that belongs to us in a country that we built, but also rendering the violence that happens to us invisible when these same white cis men RARELY lose their jobs (like being the President of this country) or face even the slightest consequences for the most egregious offenses from "white collar" crimes, environmental degradation and genocide. Black has somehow become synonymous with "crime", our deaths ruled "accidental" "misunderstandings" up for debate--after all, when a white person says or does something racist, they get a pre-written apology, a vacation, it's said they need a racial and social justice workshop, to read white fragility written by a fragile white person, all while keeping their same level of privilege, power and financial standing. Meanwhile, Black people meet the ultimate, permanent cancellation for far less. It's about time we "Say their names"...before they say ours.
Can you name white people who have caused harm? Or do you only have the names of those who experienced it?

When the Chickens Come Home to Roost They Will Be Seasoned
There is a genocide against Black people in the United States happening now and white people are intentionally killing us while other white people, incentivized by our deaths, write FB statuses. Black skin in white masks beg for forgiveness on white ppl's behalf, rationalize their terror as some fault of our own and do the bidding of the police state and the mainstream white corporate celebrities that support them. Black trans women and femmes still comprise some of the highest deaths in this country but their deaths at the hands of the state and its agents go unnoticed--erasure as a tool of the oppressor.

30 Days A Slav--Essential: Disposable Tomorrow.
It's business as usual in AmeriKKKa...a state of emergency has been declared in New York State yet rent is still due all the same. Black people still comprise the highest number of deaths from COVID 19 across the nation and our enemies couldn't be more visible. Dr. Armen Henderson, a black doctor in Miami was handcuffed by police for no reason while administering COVID 19 tests for the unhoused. Essential workers are making less money than ppl receiving unemployment. The rich get richer and the senators still sell stocks before impending market crashes and buy stock in teleconferencing companies, too. Being essential is not a prize when you're disposable tomorrow. Some people got shelter and places, and some people got million dollar stimulus checks. But Gavin Newsome is great tho, right?

I know we are all asking ourselves, "how long do we have to live like this?" in regard to shelter in place or social distancing guidelines but when it comes to racial violence and white supremacist rhetoric, we also must ask ourselves--how long do we have to live like this? The promise of a new world, of "coming together" starts with an interrogation and rejection of mass marginalization under global capitalism and how we got here, to a pandemic that costs human lives. Until then, make sure to Buy Black. Voice Credit for Intro: Tasha Lott.

It’s a whole lot of democratic socialism goin on round here, boy. You know the kind where people weaponize their so-called “leftist” or radical sensibilities to gas light others into voting for the candidate of their choice oftentimes against their own interests in a system that is supposedly “by the people” (e.g. democracy).
We all know Biden aint worth a damn but there's not much lore saying he is. No radical, revolutionary or progressive label has been attached to him. Idk if it's the Russian bots or just general rewriting of history, but this Bernie sanders mythology carrying something heavy. Bernie been getting wins for "working class WHITE" people...let's be clear. He don't call Black people the working class, we just an impoverished, lacking education, imprisoned, "under-resourced", "low information" recalcitrant voting bloc of n****s whose problems can't be solved by "writing a check" but I wonder if he take campaign donations only via cash app or credit card. FOH
What are the benefits that Bernie’s policies will have for a community he has said he would deny reparations for and a community he also helped over criminalize and mass incarcerate in support of the Crime Bill in 94?
Join us on the highway to hades 2020.

Sending love from the Canadian prairies
❤️❤️such a salve.
I was looking for a podcast that had more alternative views than the mainstream media allows and this one was recommended. I am riveted to every episode. I can’t wait till the next one. These two present a fair, honest and intellectually stimulating point of view that is refreshing. I’m always curious about how they view things and they always back up their views with facts, articles and real historical references. I hope they continue to produce this fun and thought provoking podcast for years to come. These two are worth the listen, 100%.
Learning so much. Thank you!
