For people on Patreon and everyone else, here it is: patreon.com/posts/37315222

“China has repeatedly ratified its support for Venezuela, and has rejected the coup plan led by the United States and several of its regional allies to recognize the self-proclaimed as “president in charge” Juan Guaidó, former president of the National Assembly (AN) Venezuelan – declared in contempt since 2016 – and to exert economic pressure against the Caribbean country.“

“Today, 60 years after the tumultuous events that led to Congolese independence, Andree Blouin and the women who fought for African liberation are all but forgotten. But in her time, Blouin battled three colonial powers as an adviser to Congo's Patrice Lumumba, Ghana's Kwame Nkrumah, and Guinea's Ahmed Sekou Toure.”

“There is a deeply rooted history of violence between law enforcement and the LGBTQ+ community. The entire beginning of the movement started from the Stonewall riots and resistance towards police. It would seem inappropriate to have armed, uniformed police present at an event that has no place for them.”

Like we know how limited, “Your Fave is Problematic and you should feel bad” is as praxis. But if you’re invoking the ghost of that just to defend the honor of a YouTuber owning up to her own behavior and old content, please for the love of god get some perspective.

“Cancel Culture gone mad” is the extremely online cousin of, “Land back and reperations are woke race science” at this point.

“Simply put, our tax money is paying to incarcerate one-in-every-15 Black men. So while we fight for the liberation of Black men on the outside, let’s not forget about the Black men who are not being fed enough and are sometimes placed in solitary confinement for months on end for simply reading a book.”

the sheer projection for em to call someone else a cop collaborator is astounding!

oh and ey shut down any discussion privately about reparations because they felt "deeply uncomfortable" with "conflating" redistribution and reparations, because like, yeah heaven forbid they be robust and actually address systematic anti-blackness in this country. As if ey even should have an opinion on what reparations should look like as a nonblack person!

Emsenn ain't shit stop giving em a platform. In just the last week alone i've seen em call all rape survivors who report their trauma to the authorities as "cop collaborators". Ey repeatedly referred to playviscious.social (a black lead instance) as "a minstrel show" and then would justify it with the revisionist history that minstrel shows were put on for white allies to make them feel better about how little they did!? No. Minstrel shows were white performers putting on blackface to completely and totally dehumanize black people and codify many stereotypes which are still used today in media. Fuck emsenn, don't follow em, don't boost em, don't give em money.
