Chapter 99 in The Tech Industry Is Broken With Problems It Has No Desire To Fix.

"[T]he documents... reveal legal but controversial practices, as well as the tone of police discussions around groups like Antifa—for instance, describing white nationalists like Richard Spencer as anti-Antifa, rather than acknowledging that Antifa expressly opposes groups like those who follow Spencer."

So being anti-antifascist makes you a...? 🤔

Breonna's killer cop fired; no charged filed 

Brett Hankinson, chiefly responsible for the shooting death of #Breonna Taylor has been fired for "extreme indifference to human life". If Louisville thinks this action is sufficient, that impression will quickly be dispelled. cnbc.com/2020/06/24/police-off

that the police have interpreted Black Lives Matter as an anti-police slogan is really just them telling on themselves

Hey friends,

I'm only ever using artwork by Tikaani (no Mastodon profile yet) on my mobile devices to brighten up my day.
She's still open for commissions and puts a lot of effort into her work to make you happy, so maybe fetch yourself a sketch or something equally cute.

Site's in German at the moment, we're working on an English version for next time.

Check it out:

Boosts welcome!

Y’all: Rioting and looting doesn’t do anything.

Historians: The only thing in history that has worked for the general public inciting change has been a riot,a protest, or a looting- like the Civil Rights Movement, Suffragettes, and Stonewall.

Y’all: Well, violence isn’t the answer

Historians: MLK was peaceful and you still shot him dead, and America is one of the most historically violent countries in the world, how ironic.

JUST SAY YOU DON’T SUPPORT BLACK LIVES MATTER AND LEAVE instead of finding an excuse as to why you shouldn’t care that again and again and again Black people are completely brutalised by police and police are never criminalized for it.

Copied and pasted from a friend. Feel free to do the same and call out racists where they stand.

"But we can't defund the police!"

In the USA, the police have an annual budget of $100 billion, with an additional $80 billion spent on incarceration. During the coronavirus lockdowns, while other sectors have lost funding, some police budgets have actually increased.

We can absolutely defund the police.

the US prison system is legalised slavery 

"But we need the police! They've always existed!"

Modern policing didn't exist before the mid-19th century. In the US, this is around the time of the 13th Amendment, which outlaws slavery and involuntary servitude "except as punishment for crime."

Prior to this, the origins of the US police force were as slave patrols (sometimes known as Plantation Police).

Plantations became prisons. Today 2.1 million people in the USA (around 0.6% of the total population) are currently in prison. The largest prison population in the world.

The current US law enforcement system is itself a product of white supremacy.
