a piece of advice from somebody’s who’s been through this a few times already: if somebody gives you a bad vibe trust your gut
The fact that trans women have just been completely booted out of this conversation on police brutality smfh…

So today in Feurgeson the cops said people could protest but they can’t congregate. They had to keep moving, like march. This is denying the right to assemble. Black people weren’t allowed to form crowds in this country. Literally Jim Crow. Not New Jim Crow, just Jim Crow. Shit never went away
Black people haven’t been able to assembled legally into 5 persons or more since slavery.
