how about another threat on a realistic option to house everyone 

Hey guys, super shitty news. You may remember me talking about the Birmingham Free Store, an awesome radical #queer space that provides #MutualAid in my hometown by collecting and giving away various things donated by folks in Bham

The landlord for the building has been working on the roof lately, and didn't properly secure the tarp before rain came last night. The store is now flooded, with much of what was inside - including the entire library section - destroyed beyond repair

They really need help right now, however you can. For cash donations, their patreon and venmo are both @bhamfreestore, and if you want to mail books or anything else their address is 3114 27th St N, Birmingham, AL 35207

Please boost this, and copy to other media if you'd like. This is an incredible space and it deserves our help!

Hey, you know what you shouldn't say to an indigenous person? "Lol, you don't look native" after generations and generations of genocidal warfare, the forced displacement and enslavement of our peoples, the continued erasure and trivialization of our cultural heritage and traditions, it's something that pains to hear because already our identity is trying to be torn away from us at every corner.

There are also so many different tribal heritages across the americas that differ VASTLY in their beliefs, language, songs, dances, medicines, foods, "looking native" or "behaving native" is a bullshit mindset for colonizers to place on our peoples.

It is racist to have this preconceived notion of what is a specific "native look" inside your head. What you mean is a caricature you've been fed through white supremacist institutions. Not all natives have dark skin, not all natives have black hair, not all natives dress traditionally with feathers, beadwork, ribbon shirts or buckskins.

I would CW my toots about personal native american life, my takes and struggles, but the truth is, I don't believe for a second they should be CW'd. Non-indigenous peoples should read and hear from us. I don't feel right hiding behind it. If this bums you out for whatever reason, either deal with the posts or unfollow me. I know it's not the typical shitposting stuff, but I'm a human being. Love y'all very much.

1. Advertising shits in your head, it is a form of visual and psychological pollution.

2. Removing/Replacing/Defacing advertising is not vandalism, it is an act of tidying up that is both legally and morally defensible.

3. The Visual Realm is a Public Realm, it is part of the commons, it belongs to everyone, so nobody should be able to own it.

4. Outdoor Advertising can and should be banned, Sao Paulo did it in 2006, Grenoble followed suit in 2015.

hot opinion, politics, "left" vs "liberal" 

This is what annoys me a bit: white folks are insanely quick to strip our representation away by going "WELL IT DOESNT MATTER, ALL THAT MATTERS IS THE MERITS!"

That aint the case in America, buddy.

I was reading the YT comments on a Living Color video (i think the music vid for 'Cult of Personality') and someone was like "it doesnt matter if they're black, the music is good".

No, it very much matters that they're black, considering the majority of the faces you see in this context are white as snow.

I mean they're a fantastic band, but them being black means quite a bit.
