Hey, go to https://twitter.com/GregoryMcKelvey/status/1073062881808302080 and read the rest of this thread. It’s heartbreaking, but extremely important.

More policing as a solution to any situation means that innocent lives, almost exclusively already marginalized ones, will get ground up. They’ll be broken and permanently altered in ways that white people don’t have metrics for, and are ignorant about.

Keep this handy for you. For your relatives and friends who don’t understand what interactions with the police can do to young marginalized lives. There’s a machinery at work that’s grown into something that preys on the most vulnerable of us, and it’s horrifying.

i now have voidbat at pillowfort. add me.

literally all of online “stan twitter” language is just aave that’s been popularized and generalized by nonblacks to the point where black people are the ones who look out of pocket for using words we came up with because funny internet persona #23904378 wants to use “deadass” and “finna” in every other sentence

History is fucking wild

Like people who don’t know history think it’s all names and dates and battles but NO

Like for my current studies I’m learning about this guy back in 16th century France. His name is Marin Guerre and he’s from a pretty well to do family and they buck the trend and get marry him off when he’s 14 to a 12 year old from another family. I say this bucks the trend because honestly most people married in their 20’s but this was an arranged marriage so different rules.

Anyway like a decade later they finally get sexually active and have a kid and he promptly fucks off.

(Side note: I have to say kudos for him for waiting until they were both adults. We’re pretty sure by the way that they did wait because his wife Bertrande de Rols resisted a lot of pressure from her family to divorce him on grounds of impotence)

From what I can tell he then went off and joined some kind of army and basically lived it up. Its worth noting that his fucking off was apparently due to stealing from his own father and nothing to do with his wife and kid but it still wasn’t great for her.

Anyway 8 years later this guy shows up going “I am totally Martin! See I know all this super secret stuff about you. Also you’re remembering wrong and I was definitely always this build and my feet were always this small” and Martin’s sisters and his Uncle and his wife Bertrande were all “I’m convinced” and he spent the next THREE YEARS shacking up with Bertrande.

He fathered 2 kids with her.

He also sold some property and that’s apparently what made the Uncle change his mind about this being the real Martin.

So “Martin” is put on trial and Bertrande defends him the whole way and it looks like he’s about to be acquitted and confirmed as definitely being Martin but then the real Martin shows up minus a flesh leg and with a wooden leg all dramatic going “WHAT THE FUCK GUYS!?”

And Bertrande is also going “WHAT THE FUCK!?” And the imposter who is actually a dude called Arnaud du Tilh confessed some friends of Martin mistook him for Martin and he decided to roll with it and learn all he could of his lookalike and take his life.

Which, to be fair, it’s not like Martin was living that particular life.

Apparently one of the last things du Tilh did before he was executed was ask the real Martin to be nice to his wife because she totally thought they were the same person until the dramatic reveal.

All of which is fucking wild and it’s no surprise it’s been a subject of a number of books and at least one movie but holy fuck

History is great

women are socialized to be so accommodating of others and you don’t even realize it until you’re already in the middle of some elaborate favor for someone and you’re wondering what the fuck you’re even doing
