Hello, I moved from Mastodon.Social to Sunbeam.City!
I'm Eddie, I use they/them pronouns, I'm vegan and low waste. I make valiant efforts to grow my own food and love sewing.
Always antifacist and a proud anarchist. :vegan: :ra: :weed:

Even among people of color, nobody's experience is the same. My experience is different from from a black experience and different from an asian experience and different from a white passing experience. We allll gotta learn and hear from more and more people

I have this notion I talk about sometimes of the "firewall of fascism," those people or communities that serve as a buffer for more explicit fascism. Instances like FOSStodon, groups like the Daughters of the Confederacy, y'all know the sort.

The issue is there are few places which serve the opposite role, serving as a guard against white supremacy spreading further. More often, places see white supremacy encroaching and fall back to where it is not. 1/n

βœ… DNC is a division of GOP.
βœ… They WANT us to LEAVE.
βœ… DNC is a division of GOP.
βœ… It makes their job easier.

"Before our white brothers arrived to make us civilized men, we didn't have any kind of prison. Because of this, we had no delinquents. Without a prison, there can be no delinquents. We had no locks nor keys and therefore among us there were no thieves. When someone was so poor that he couldn't afford a horse, a tent or a blanket, he would, in that case, receive it all as a gift. We were too uncivilized to give great importance to private property." - John Lame Deer, Lakhota, 1903-1976
