If you were ever bullied; thank you for existing. If you ever felt like an outsider; thank you. If you ever felt like the only one in the world who cared about you was you; thank you. If you aren't afraid of seeing reality for what it is and not what society thinks it is; thank you. If you ever questioned authority; thank you. If you ever stuck up for someone; thank you. If you ever befriended someone specifically because you knew they had no one else; thank you. If you ever felt persecuted for existing; thank you. If you ever lost your temper and apologized heartfeltfully; thank you. If you ever did a kind act for strangers without being asked to; thank you. If you ever cried yourself to sleep at night; thank you. If you ever cried alone in the bathroom; thank you.

Knowing there is someone out there who can relate to my worst moments and desiring to find and connect with them has carried me through most hardships. So thank you for being here, on Earth, at the same time as me.

Africans and African descendants have lived in England for as far back as the Roman invasion. Thus, non white immigrants have always been a minority a of British society. In the 13th century and before, the colour of someones skin wasn't considered a trait worthy of much mention in the UK. You won't find them in records easily thus until the 16th century. It was only around the time of Queen Elizabeth I that the expulsion of black folks in the name of white population growth became a hot political topic. It wasn't until the 16th century when black people were commonly distinguished as "different" by being referred to as Blackmoors - essentially "black blacks." Thus, it has also always been British culture to be racist and xenophobic. It's as entwined in British culture as the monarchy and tea are.

@Vixlia There's actually a bit of backstory behind that!

Because of, well, the diaspora and slavery, African American culture has been entirely severed from African culture to the point where no Black person born in the states can trace their ancestry further than the first documented slave.

As such, Black is its own ethnicity and should be capitalized like Chinese, Italian, et al.

As Black History Month draws to a close, here's a few things to keep in mind that (most) Black people are tired of reiterating:

- "One of the good ones" is a statement that should never leave your lips.

- Calling us various color-appropriate candies has diminishing returns.

- No, you're not entitled to your One just because we're friends. Be thankful if we even give you One.

- We can totally differentiate accidents from intentional bigotry, don't panic.

- Capitalize the B.

Me: ok here's why we need a revolution to overthrow capitalism. Oh, amd here's how the Russian, Chinese, German and all libetarian revolutions ever have failed to do that.

Other people: ok Lucy, so then what do we do?

Me: *scrambles through stacks of notes* uhhhh, hmmm, fuck, see- well my idea was- uhhh. We just put the good people in charge and hope it works out?

Quoiromantic: not being able to distinguish romantic and platonic attraction or finding the distinction useless.
It's also sometimes called WTFromantic. (because what the fuck even is romance!?)


I think the worst thing about capitalism (for now, my viewpoint may further evolve) is how people are wrung dry for every ounce of profitable productivity in their bodies with no regard to their status as humans. People think this gets better when you're your own boss but arguably it's even worse. The "rise and grind" and "I'll rest when I'm dead" mentality is unhealthy, leaving behind scores of people burnt out, numb, and disillusioned with life.

: Unceded. Undefeated

"Some of you may be thinking weโ€™ve lost. That weโ€™ve made an agreement with industry. That we are bending, conceding, giving up. This is not true. We will never give up. There will be no pipelines on our Yinโ€™tah. The Unistโ€™otโ€™en have never been defeated. We will win this fight, and we will do it with integrity and honour, as we have always done."

If you're moving from art to anarchist blogging, let go of all you know about giving credit.

Quoting someone's radical ideas to a new audience without consent can expose them to dangerous attention.

Reposts are harder to censor and remove than reblog chains.

Being a decent writer shouldn't mean we get popular and acquire social power. Valuing popularity encourages empty 'hot take' culture.

Fuck credit. Steal all my stuff. Our ideas should move freely and belong to all of us.

it's funny that people think the thing we had before cars was horses, no binch we had streetcars and the subway, and we also walked places a lot because we didn't live in suburbs the size of new hampshire.
