Decolonizing my White Brain: A thread for white folk
This thread is for myself and other white folk to share things we read and ways we can confront and deal with our Whiteness and work towards Anti-Racism.
I am white. I was raised to be racist by my white parents. I am trying to be anti-racist. I'm gonna fail sometimes. This thread is for me to connect with myself and other white folk to read work by Black authors and activists and work on our shit.
FYI: i joke about and much like other leftists.
But actual premeditated violence or murderous intent makes me deeply uncomfortable bc I've been to that place and hate it. So uhh. Not on my TL plz/I may trust you less. And if you think there isn't a difference between self defense and premeditated "self defense" plz think again.
In conclusion: punch don't kill nazis.
I have some more followers now and have mostly settled into my mastodon self.
Generally I post about #uspol , #mnpol , #localpol regarding the MSP area, #zoning and #urbanism , #socialism but from a pro-market and pro federation of peoples/larger groups are fine actually perspective and mental health stuff about #adhd #anxiety and #arfid or #pickiness with food and sensory issues.
Sometimes there are dog pics and home renovation stuff. Enjoy!

Left strong arm, black man in white t-shirt labeled:
"Leftists who refuse to vote for Biden"
Right strong arm, white man in red t-shirt labeled:
"Trump supporters who refuse to wear a mask"
"Refusing to do the bare minimum to contain the spread of something horrible because they don't like liberals telling them what to do and think consequences aren't real"
@densetsu I'm just going to keep posting these for the fediverse armchair pundits who presume to know that communities blaming destruction on "outside agitators" are disempowering local community action and not... correctly and precisely identifying what's happening where they live.
Trump - manages to control his impulsive talking over people for 18/90 mins. Then repeatedly loses his shit, and thinks he's the best thing for Black folk in the country since Lincoln.
Biden - Drug problems need to be solved by healthcare not prisons. We will fight climate change by investing in renewable energy (and electric cars, bleh) and ending subsidies to gas/oil companies. and banning fracking *on federal land*
bunch of other shit but that's the stuff that stuck out to me.

I find it really frustrating that basically every doc i've talked to is like "oh you're trans* ? you should talk to the gender docs at the U, we don't do trans stuff" and I'm just like BITCH WHY DO ALL THE TRANS FOLK HAVE TO GO THRU A BOTTLENECK FOR MEDICAL HELP????
Scheduling to check for medical issues. Then, if not, on to UoM for gender shit.
