conspiracies are definitely a white boy culture thing because women and poc don’t have to imagine an elaborate scenario in which the government fucks us over

Women hear it all the time from men. “You’re overreacting,” we tell them. “Don’t worry about it so much, you’re over-thinking it.” “Don’t be so sensitive.” “Don’t be crazy.” It’s a form of gaslighting — telling women that their feelings are just wrong, that they don’t have the right to feel the way that they do. Minimizing somebody else’s feelings is a way of controlling them. If they no longer trust their own feelings and instincts, they come to rely on someone else to tell them how they’re supposed to feel.

70% of the black panthers in the 1970’s were women, black women will always be an important part of this movement

Ferguson protesters take their message to the Rams game!

This is SO amazing and important! Critiquing the capitalistic exploitation and dehumanization of Black athletes in order to entertain and deepen the pockets of white people is such a great way of discussing why Black people only matter when they benefit white people/ the white gaze but are so easily disposable off the field/court/arena. And even then, to what extent are Black athletes appreciated when sports leagues will still use Black people to be the face of violence when it’s convenient to deter criticism of rape culture & misogyny in sports, white athletes, and the white men in power.

we do not become monsters
because evil is a stagnant state of existence.

sometimes we have the innate ability
to walk among shadows and other dark places
because they see similarities in us
that neither priests nor prayers could pluck out.
sometimes we make choices that only pan out
because we are capable of enjoying them.

if we are monsters then we have always been monsters—
simply hiding and wearing masks.
