    When the Chickens Come Home to Roost They Will Be Seasoned

    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.

    Content Warning: Police brutality, violence, death, racism, transphobia, misogynoir, homophobia, housing insecurity, wage and labor exploitation, white peopling.

    30 Days A Slav--Essential: Disposable Tomorrow.

    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?

    Washing Our Hands of White Supremacy: Coronavirus and all the Other Pandemics #Suspend Rent Now!

    Suspend Rent Now. Tweet, call your state and local elected officials, send them letters, sign existing petitions like this one or create your own: https://actionnetwork.org/petitions/reclaim-our-homes-rent-suspension-now?source=facebook&&fbclid=IwAR0k822tpVxcZCieQlNpvMYuyV2ZDHYYsXAuolABqMjKT5SceD6VTBuTj5w.

    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?

    Toxic Masculinity: How to be a White Cis Man 101

    From Rockefeller's Standard Oil monopoly of America's early industrialization period to the "only Christopher we acknowledge", the drive to forgive the transgresses of abusive cis men celebrated the world over for the exploitative power of their influence and the allure of toxic masculinity across the gender spectrum has gone seldom challenged for millennia. Yet it's not the love of cis men that excites or attracts us to white supremacist patriarchy, but the hatred of black femmes. Join us in the first of two installments as we make the case that toxic masculinity aint nothing but an attempt to be like white cis men and we might need a better term for it.

thankful

i really love this podcast and greatly greatly appreciate the emotional work and literal labor that ebony and ericka put into it. please hit their venmo @ericka-hart if u see this review. 💕💚✨🌈🔥

Anani Lei ,

Real.

What I love about this podcast is how raw and real Erika and Ebony are as they discuss. It’s also very convicting as a non-BIPOC. As someone who is biracial, I used to think I was free of the same privileges that white people have. My skin color denied me those same privileges, however, the fact that I am not Black meant I still received privilege. They helped me see that. For real though, their funny, honest, and unapologetic.

alyakanandi ,

Ehhh

Not really for me. I tried a few episodes and while I find it insightful to read and listen to differing opinion, I found this podcast exhausting. I’m not sure if anyone but cishet people can be hoteps but this has some hotep energy.
