US Human Rights Abuses: we have a long history of this. I grew up a POC in an American ghetto, and worked as a teacher & social worker for these many homeless and hungry kids. I witnesses America take millions of poor, non-white, and immigrant kids from parents, put them with people who don't care, then pump them full of psychotropic drugs for big pharma profit, *intentionally* fail to educate them, and then dump them in prisons to make Whole Foods products at 74 cents / hr. This is reality.
The US withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council, the child concentration camps, this IS America. We can turn away from the reality, from the ugliness and the fact that many of these kids have a parents in prison or OD'ed on drugs, have no education but gangsta rap, Grand Theft Auto, and Pornhub, see their only future as becoming the next Kanye or Kardashian, running drugs and stealing cars. We can turn away, and let neutrality help the oppressor. I refuse. because those kids ARE me.

Okay hivemind, I have one of those #organistproblems that I could use some help with: finding the correct tune for a hymn in a language I do not speak, where I haven't been given much information. For a funeral, which is tomorrow.
Please have a look, particularly if you speak Luganda or know a lot of Sankey hymns.

If you're white, I want you to imagine you are seeing someone be taken by ICE. I want you to see yourself getting in the way. Physically stopping ICE from doing this. Blockading the truck. Standing there. Tackling the officer. Would you stand by and watch SS take someone in germany? NO! Could you live with yourself if you did nothing? Will there be consequences to you for doing this? Yes. Do those consequences outweigh the life of this person if you do nothing? No
