Black Civil Rights activists have been decrying police brutality and saying #BlackLivesMatter longer than you might think. And white-owned corporate media has dutifully distorted that message for just as long

Obviously this is not new material. 

Anyone who says, “But what are your policy demands, what do you really want?” is being disingenuous or willfully ignorant, because black people have clearly been repeating the exact same message over and over and over and over: stop racism, stop housing discrimination and economic racism, stop over-policing black communities, stop police brutality, and stop murdering us.

Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth being a total babe.

“Women make natural anarchists and revolutionaries because they’ve always been second-class citizens, kinda having had to claw their way up. I mean, who made up all the rules in the culture? Men-white male corporate society. So why wouldn’t a woman want to rebel against that?”

  • Question | Why do police issue orders of dispersal against your right to assemble in protest over the killing of men like Eric Garner and boys like Mike Brown?:
  • Answer:It is NOT about "Keeping the peace." It never has been. As an institution police operate as state sanctioned gangs employed to uphold the violent, racist hierarchy of capitalism and, whenever possible, to further the monopoly of power where all violence from/by those higher on the hierarchy upon those lower can be legalized and normalized. Any deviation from this narrative, any resistance — even the threat of force displayed in massive protests — by those lower on the hierarchy upon those higher is met with brutal repression.
  • This is why cops are always present at protests. Again, it is NOT to “Keep the peace.” We've seen their "peace" — tear gas, rubber and wooden bullets, mace, riot gear, sound cannons, and thousands of brutal cops leaving dead bodies. This violence is enacted to protect the private property/interests of corporate power, the owners of US government, and to maintain at all times the explicit reminder of America’s power hierarchy; meaning, inevitably, the maintenance of white supremacy through the brutalization of black and brown bodies above all others. Such has always been and will always be the primary function of police.
  • Remember Malcolm X when he said, "A hundred years ago they used to put on a white sheet and use a bloodhound against Negroes. Today they have taken off the white sheet and put on police uniforms and traded in the bloodhounds for police dogs, and they’re still doing the same thing.”

Proudly supporting profit

Keep pride political. Not profitable.

Above the last sentence of text there is a small symbol of a unicorn. end description.]

we would also add “Proudly supporting homonormativity” to this list.
