  • Mon, 20:47: Earlier, I had an argument about police violence and disability. I eventually blocked him/her. On her feed are the words, "Retarded racist."
  • Mon, 20:47: I feel like I have not successfully communicated the complexities of intersectional analysis in this case. Oh well, try again next time.
  • Mon, 23:28: RT @texasinafrica: No matter the cause, don't donate to anything without researching where the money is going first.
  • Mon, 23:33: June, 2014. Kalamazoo MI. White man carrying large rifle, possibly drunk, jaywalks. The police handle it perfectly.
  • Mon, 23:34: They de-escalate. They don't get out of their cars too quickly. They take 40 minutes to resolve the situation. Now remember Kajieme Powell.
  • Mon, 23:36: Earlier today, I had an argument in which I was told that anyone who has a weapon deserves whatever violence police dish out.
  • Mon, 23:37: Watching this video makes me so angry. Not because the Kzoo police did wrong, but thinking of all the bodies, just from this summer.
  • Mon, 23:38: Mostly black bodies, sometimes disabled, sometimes both. So many bodies. Don't tell me that de-escalation is impossible.
  • Mon, 23:40: "Why don't you fucking shoot me," the man says. Police do not shoot this drunk white man. They shot Kajieme Powell.
  • Mon, 23:46: "Why don't you fucking shoot me!" Police do not shoot drunk white man. They shot Diana Showman. She had a drill.
