Okay friends, announcement:
@guerrillarain is my wholesome, creative, party-hardy, witchy, goofy, non-discourse MAIN account. Follow for lock-picking, music, TV, book, botched idioms, etc.
@guerrillagengo remains my language study thing.
@guerrillablack (this one) is discourse, politics, and activism focused.
Follow (and unfollow if applicable) accordingly. Hopefully I won't have to do this again. ✨
Okay so anti-racism allies, let's talk.
cis white women are my mortal enemies. Show more
You expect cis white men to be horrible. You learn every second of history class and in literature, in movies and in real life. You know they're arrogant.
At the same time, you are constantly taught of white woman victimhood and white women advocating and fighting and white women being the face of empowerment and resistance.
But issa lie.
They're just as arrogant, if not more so.
This Asian-American and Pacific Islander Month, let's remember that the US overthrew the Hawaiian government, many native Hawaiians live in poverty and are homeless, and their homes, their burial grounds, their lands are still being converted into vacation spots and golf courses and targets for the haole.

I mean, it's true, but the story was originally supposed to be about shedding your skin and being who you wanna be lmao
I unintentionally went on a rant about white women weaponizing their tears and playing the victim in my short story lmao
I am redacting the Marlon Brando thing bc he's been accused of abuse so nevermind.
I don't want answers. I want results.

White people won't speak ill of the white dead.
Do you put that much effort into protecting the dead your ancestors killed? Enslaved? Brutalized? No?
Do they get justice? Do they get irreverence? No?
What about the children killed by your fucking cops? What happens to "Let's not speak ill of the dead" when you justify why they die???
Why does Barbara Bush and fucking Reagan get more protection than Michael Brown and Tamir Rice?
uspol + attack on white culture (mention of death) /2 Show more
This isn't just about Barbara Bush. This is about Antonin Scalia.
This is about that one racist actress comedian who died but whose sole purpose of comedy was heckling people of color.
This is about white activists conveniently getting amnesia so they can be sympathetic to white racists and their families at the expense of their victims. Again.
(for the record, I'm just as grouchy when I see cars do fucked up shit which is also a daily occurrence.)
Thanks for the feedback, everyone. I can't wait until I move to a city with decent fucking infrastructure so I don't have to drive anymore.
My biggest gripe with this is that when you do shit nobody expects, other users of the road (usually cars) might react unpredictably, potentially leading to an accident.
@guerrillablack Honestly my bigger concern is when they're riding the shoulder of the road but don't know how to fucking ride a bike and keep swerving as they pedal.
@guerrillablack Crossing at a red... sometimes it's daredevil outlaw behavior, sometimes (if they slow down and look) it's simply practical - they're usually sitting far further forward relative to the front of their vehicle than a driver would be, and sitting pretty high up, and therefore can see cross traffic more easily before they cross.
And, it takes a fair amount of energy to get going at speed again, unless you have an e-bike.
