Hello! I realized the other day that if I get a job this year (2019) I won’t have to pay this government any taxes. So... the thing is... it’s not like there is any guarantee that the next World Leader won’t be a racist... in fact... odds are pretty good that the next one will be. So, well.... it’s a dilemma.
YWCA Asheville invites you to attend our monthly Racial Justice Workshop to learn about racial justice concepts and develop a deeper understanding of racism. There are many learning opportunities in our community to deepen your racial equity analysis, and this is another opportunity for you, your organization and our community to continue working towards creating a racial justice framework of (un)learning and (un)doing.
The goals of the Racial Justice Workshops include: learning the shared language and concepts related to racial justice, developing an understanding of how racism shows up in each of our lives, and becoming familiar with the YWCA's racial justice framework.
This 90-minute workshop takes place on the second Tuesday of each month at 11:30 am at the YWCA, and is facilitated by Gerry Leonard, Racial Justice & Outreach Specialist.
Please RSVP for an upcoming Racial Justice Workshop at our website. This is workshop is FREE and refreshments are provided!
Please Share: These two fucks decided it’d be a great idea to tear down/vandalize a statue of Frederick Douglas 😡😡😡While their “excuse” was being drunk, eye witnesses claim racial slurs were shouted during the process. This shit will not be tolerated. No justice, no peace, please make sure these piles of shit receive the penalties they deserve. DO NOT LET THIS BE SWEPT UNDER A RUG ROCHESTER “Original Post:
These TWO racists tore down and destroyed a statue of Frederick Douglass while screaming profanity and hate speech against POC. In order for their photos to make it to the news they need to be released by police (which supposedly hasn’t happened yet) ORRRRR someone who is friends with them can send in photos of them to the news. They can remain anonymous for doing so and don’t have to worry about being cited in any way if that’s a concern.
Most channels locally don’t allow staff to just grab photos off FB and the like. SOOOOO what’s up students at St. John Fisher College. I’m sure if enough people share this we can get the faces of these racists by the 11 o’clock news and on their website.

We cannot continue to support these black liberation movements in our country until we are represented very unapologetically and spaces are created and our wants and needs have a seat at the table, a table that we should have never been forced to leave. The black church has always been a site of great social and spiritual importance for black people in our fight against racial oppression but now a bible that was used to enslave us is being used to betray us, for this I blame the church. It’s their duty to protect us and abolish this negative religious rhetoric within our community and family structures. I ask that we take a stand and don’t fall victim to this reverse homophobia agenda from or black liberation movements who seek to attack whiteness within the LGBTQ community but doesn’t show praise towards blackness within the same community, it’s a distraction from the real truth. Demand change in your communities and with your family and friends, and use the few allies we might have to let cisgender black people across the nation know that enough is enough. It’s not about being radical, it’s about right. Due to our intersectionality of race, religious, and sexual identities, we must seek justice and equality in all facets of our lives. We are Black. We are Queer. We are Afro-Queer. MIstertelltales. Read more on my website. Link In Bio!
