Don’t forget that women of color and trans women (and especially trans women of color) receive even higher sentences for hurting/killing in self-defense against abusive partners than cis and/or white women.

From their condemnation of Donald Sterling to their vote lodged for Obama, white people (and white “liberals” especially) show their true colors whenever another black person is lynched and murdered. They have no interest in dismantling white supremacy or working against racist power structures, as their interest in “progressive” causes only continues as long as black lives are still seen as inherently valueless in our society. If you can vote for Obama with one hand and suddenly be mum when black children are being victimized and lynched and their communities invaded by police with military equipment when they say enough is enough, I have no interest in you as an “ally.” If you were outspoken about Donald Sterling and yet you take a completely ahistorical view and paint Mike Brown’s case as one “where you need more facts” or is a “matter of opinion,” you are a fucking hypocrite. I have no time for any of this anymore and all of the POC invoking respectability politics and the worst silencing tactics of white people to derail these discussions. A black child was effectively lynched in front of his community and all you can tell me is “not all white people” and deploy more white derailment tactics so that we do not have a serious discussion about how violently antiblack our country is? No I have no time or patience for you either. At the end of the day, these people are all disgusting and my heart is with all of those in Ferguson right now and Mike Brown’s family as they continue to demand justice. And to all of these other folks with their bullshit, all I can say at this point is “Fuck all of them”.
the fault in our stars movie seems a bit different from the book…
