"Inherent to liberal social contact values is the simultaneous maintenance of white supremacy's capital interests, signafied by anti-Indigenous and anti-Blackness exclusions, and the purported values of equality: liberalism pays lip service to egalitarianism while complementing and structurally lending itself to fascistic logics and political encroachments." - Samudzi & Anderson

Oakland, Moms 4 Housing, eviction, purchase, +
An unexpectedly positive coda to that abhorrent Oakland eviction by the militarily-armed Alameda County Sheriff's Office recently:
"In a huge victory that may change the way Oakland (and other cities) looks at vacant housing, homeless mothers who took over an empty property in Oakland announced on Martin Luther King Day they will be purchasing the home through the Oakland Community Land Trust."
"As part of the deal, the company has also agreed to allow the city of Oakland, the land trust, or other affordable housing organizations the first right of refusal on all of their other Oakland properties. In other words, the city will be first in line to have the option to purchase when Wedgewood’s 50 properties go on the market.
It’s a big deal.
Make no mistake: It’s a reluctant, begrudging agreement on the part of Wedgewood. Moms 4 Housing, in collaboration with the Oakland Community Land Trust, repeatedly offered to buy the house during eviction proceedings. The company repeatedly refused."
Are we ready to drop it low for The Kang this weekend?
The world is not ending. Whiteness is. Humanity isn't on it's last legs. Whiteness is.
They are refusing to adapt to a world that is realizing we don't have to put up w/ their shit anymore. We don't have to define ourselves by the whims of a culture that even hates it self.
The rest of the world is moving on despite the constant fear and violence used by whiteness globally.
It is our challenge to survive whiteness, not save it from itself.
That's why your joy & well-being are so important
