white fragility and alienation Show more
"this leaves many white people open to a gross misunderstanding. Most of our encounters with black people are on “white turf” where black people present not as they are, but as they know we wish them to be – quiet, polite, humble, generous and always smiling. Paradoxically, most of our encounters with black people from a distance – through media or external observation – are of black people who are loud, assertive, self-possessed, proud and sometimes angry.

Don't want to shine a light on myself cause I don't feel I've earned it, but instead, I will share my great uncle! May he rest in peace.
Uncle Mario came to the US from Las Flores when he was a young man with his brother Juan (my grandfather!)
He made a living for awhile doing breathtaking matte paintings for cinema, and then relocated to Taos, NM to work on modernist art. He was also a handsome fucker. He is best known for his work on King Kong, but also worked on Citizen Kane.
Some photos that I couldn't upload a few days ago. We're now in the south end of the same bay, and the reception is much better here. Tomorrow we should be sailing south, starting our return trip to Bremerton/Seattle. Wish us luck, fediverse! #boatlife
🚨 Soni L is a stalker. Not metaphorically not hyperbolically, she’s a fucking stalker. Who’s targeted Marcia, Ro, Myself and this instance. She’s targeted us with racist hate and honestly Marcia has gotten the worst of it. I’m not gonna be quiet or cute about this. We’ve said “No”, “Leave us alone”, “You’re blocked” but still she finds us and drags herself into our mentions. This is abuse.
Well, I'm completely incapable of uploading pictures here, so those will have to come later. Anyways, we've been sailing the last two days and our first day out was an intense day with winds up to 20kts and some small waves. We ended up with two reefs in our main and were pushing over 7kts at points, which is a lot for Blackthorn! It was good practice for us without really being in danger, and it definitely came as a shock to my system after so much time sailing in gentle winds lately. #boatlife
Mauna Kea protectors Show more
"They've taken everything from us Hawaiians. This illegal government taking fish from our oceans. There's not enough food for people. People are on the streets. There's no housing for our people, poisoning our farmland, now they're taking away our sacred mountain. That's the last straw they're not gonna take this mountain," Walter Ritte, who chained himself to the cattle guard, said."

hey y'all, i'm gettin' really close to my goal on patreon so i can afford to do private art streams for my supporters~
consider becoming a patron to gain access to that AND all the stuff i post on patreon waaaay before i post it anywhere else, as well as exclusive content.
Please feel free to suggest patch ideas of literally any kind! (Particularly if you're #BIPOC and/or #Jewish! I want us to have what we want) Doesn't have to be, like, political? or whatever, although it can be. Really anything, including you're own arts possibly?!
(please boost 💚 )
July 4, Hawaii, Independence Show more
Neofeud is a game about my experiences growing up in Hawaii's ghetto, being a social worker & STEM teacher for poor, homeless, refugees, mostly non-white kids in slums of Hawaii the tour buses avoid, while living out of a van. 100% of sales go to putting a roof over my kids' head.
Autistic student graduation video that's going around Show more
If you haven't seen it, it's here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ine7xIlLxgc&feature=youtu.be
Basically, an entire graduating class and their parents/guests were good enough to be entirely silent while giving a standing ovation to their fellow student (who is autistic and extremely sensitive to noise) as he walked for graduation at PACE in New York.
The way it's being shared by NTs is very "disability inspiration porn," but what they're missing is the (to me) better angle.
request for financial help, boosts ok Show more
Between moving and not being able to work because I'm moving, I'm wiped out - and the move isn't even done yet!
If you can help out, either financially or by boosting, I'd really appreciate it. 💜
Thank you! 💜
