#NYCpride exists because rebellious Black and Brown Queer & Trans women were fed up with the State harassing their communities by way of an inherently corrupt police department. Multicolored flags and corporate floats are cute, but don't you ever forget what those women endured for you to enjoy today. Pride is Resistance. At least, it should be. Remember that. #pmurraymusic #iamanomaly #gmoc
The new proposals on the table re: Southern US border immigration include keeping families together whilst incarcerating them indefinitely. This is a political bone for all sides, since Liberals can say they fixed the problem and Conservatives can appease racist Whites and their anti-migrant xenophobia. Who loses? The victims who are actually affected by this human rights travesty. Keeping in mind that crossing our borders without proper authorization is still only a Federal misdemeanor. I repeat: A MISDEMEANOR. Look up *malum prohibitum*: underestand that no one is illegal on stolen land. And, as always, when it comes to who to blame? #yesallwhitepeople
Gotta big up the Black diva @dianagordon for her new music video, Kool Aid, and Mr. @portershields for his dope single, Love You Better. Visit their bios for more details and take a look listen. #blackmusic
1) Trans Women of Color must be at the center of our justice and liberation narratives. 2) Immigrant children from the global south, Black American children, Muslim children are all just fodder for Supremacist politics. Never forget that. #keepfamiliestogether #endwhitesupremacy
#TBT When you have a passion, always remember that you're gonna run into two groups of people. The first will try to over analyze your work because they don't understand that you're merely a conduit. It's likely they will try to take advantage of your willingness to use your gift/work for the greater good to serve their personal agenda. Be mindful that those people don't take up too much of your time. The second group of people are like my friend and colleague for over a decade here, who will love and support you at every possible turn, because they realize that when people use their talents and work together to uplift each other, the benefits are invaluable. This pic of me and @chestergregory pretty much sums up our relationship. Stay close to these people. They're the ones that make life worth living.
