Between Caster Semenya, Sonicfox and a bunch of anti-black, transphobic bullshit, I’m side-eyeing people who center lily white woman intelectuals and celebrities while calling themselves allies and comrades even more. I’m sick. This is happening while you’re re-litigating arguments over which white feminist from the 1st, 2nd and 3rd waves are worth stanning. The answer is: none of them.
So listen to us, stand with us, work with us or shut up. We’re dying and being shut out.
On that note, I made a series of audiovisual posts on birdsite about my time on the ground on May Day, marching from the Sempra Energy building in Downtown to Chicano Park. I’ll link them here: https://twitter.com/sw1tchup/status/1123739943703142400?s=21
Sharing this info and a couple of recipes about using acorns as a food source! This content came from the quarterly newsletter my tribe's administration puts out; acorns were, and still are, albeit to a lesser extent, an important staple food of Northern California indigenous peoples, my tribes included!
And a little native language lession! Words for acorns according to my tribes!

Last night I spoke at the Justice Center about the contributions of Ella James, Coretta Scott King and Bayard Rustin to the civil rights movement to illustrate the multifaceted nature of organization before, during and after the civil rights movement. Another speaker spoke about the developing radicalism of Dr. King before he was assassinated.
I also wore my blouse for the first time in months. It was nice and I’m happy that people learned something from that night.
