  • Latinx people and our trauma literally don’t mean shit to you if you’re too lazy to do your own research and expect POC to do all the work for you when it comes to something as emotionally taxing as mental health.

    The idea that white people are entitled to the personal stories of POC is a facet of white supremacy that devalues and ultimately belittles black and latinx experiences.

    If, as a mental health professional, your first response when one google search doesn’t turn up information about black/latinx mental health, is “well let me just get on tumblr and ask strangers to share their experiences!” then sorry but you’re not gonna survive long in the mental health profession. Many black & latinx people with mental illnesses need specialized care so talking to some stranger with potentially no certifications isn’t going to be of benefit to them. It may even have negative consequences. 

    Part of being a good mental health professional is recognizing subtle facets of white supremacy in your behavior and working to correct them so that you’re a better therapist to POC. If you get defensive whenever a POC’s response to you isn’t 100% nice and happy and supportive, that’s your problem. It sounds like you need to work on that white defensive response.

    If you’re gonna conduct a research study then by all means, conduct a research study. But keep in mind that the people who participate in psychology related research studies usually get paid :P

  • Let Us Grow by Ryan Jones


    I have seen us sprout through America’s soil with only mere droplets of water.

    Why must we be submerged below their Earth?

    I have seen our Black stems wither,

    in the face of cruel winds.

    Why must our pedals, which illuminate against the sun, be plucked

    one by one?


    I have felt and I have witnessed,

    that there’s still beauty in that which is dying.

  • send poor young girls off to marriage

    and poor young boys off to war

    so when they come back hurt and damaged

    they know there’s no worth living for

    .

    little girl’s a tender heart

    cries the rainbow in her tears

    little boy’s a pile of shards 

    became his sister’s greatest fears

    .

    stitches in her brother’s seams

    and bruises on her back

    she whispers ‘help me’ in her dreams,

    her brother cries ‘Attack!’

    .

    he was shipped to battle 

    she fights a different war

    ‘ignore the viper’s rattle

    ‘you must obey the call’

    .

    of rich men scheming richer

    at the cost of a million lives

    the water’s only bitter

    if out tears have raised the tides

    .

    money can fill your heart in time

    ‘buy more, spend more, let go of the reins’

    but if you make your heart a gold mine

    you’ll hollow out all of your veins

    .

    so the apex stays unsatisfied

    their compass empty grey

    as children they were raised to fight

    for their parents’ nod and say

    .

    pick your poison, race your truck

    the highway’s free and wild

    or sit still, slow down, give a fuck

    as they should’ve when you were a child

    .

    but now the water’s rising

    and there’s iron in the salt

    we’ll drag them out of hiding

    and brace our voices for revolt

    .

    sing and sign and blink a light

    make noise, whatever you’ve got

    we’ll fight for tomorrow here tonight

    and finally dig out the rot

  • I know that change.org petitions are a novel thing and usually don’t hurt but please understand how governments give absolutely no shits about them. The recent changes, investigations etc were started cause of protests and maaaybe because of official petitions. Most countries don’t give a shit about the petitions they themselves host, why would they care that someone from another country wants them to stop putting people in concentration camps? Do you really think that if 2 million people sign a petition Trump’s or Putin’s heart will grow three times the size and they will go out on the balcony and exclaim that everything is good now?

    No.

    No people ever got rights by pleading for them. Governments love your petitions cause they know they dont have to do anything about it. They want you to go the official route cause they know it wont work.

    Either do direct action or support those who do, get the word out look for local orgs on the streets, empower the voices of the oppressed.

    Also for fucks sake stop donating to change.org they are a forprofit organisation and nothing of the money will go to any of the causes.

  • Since a lot of you guys are discovering italian cinema thanks to Luca, I’d like to recommend you a different movie. If you’ve already watched Non Essere Cattivo/Don’t Be Bad, you might have noticed another great actor, Alessandro Borghi. He made a movie with Netflix, which won some awards i think, called Sulla Mia Pelle/On My Skin, and i think you should watch it especially if you are involved in BLM protests.

    Many trigger warning about violence and police brutality, so skip if you are sensitive about this kind of stuff.

    But before talking about the movie, I need to give you a little lesson about what’s going on in italy.

    Police brutality is not only an american problem, racial profiling too. Just yesterday a black kid (probably my age) was chocked by a cop because he refused to handle his documents. The pig got violent, and the kid was arrested because he tried to escape. Bit there are many other stories like this, and i would spend my entire day talking about the young people who died because of police brutality in italy, but I’ll only tell you one, the most famous probably, the story of Stefano Cucchi, the one potraited in the movie.

    Stefano got arrested because he was fund with some drugs on him, and after seven days in prison he was found dead, apparently because of and epilectic crisis and with injuries that caused by falling from a staircase.

    I’m not going to put photos of him here as a form of respect, but you can find them online, but he was so skinny and full of bruises that his family said they couldn’t recognize him. It was pretty clear he was beaten to death.

    Of course, they didn’t believe to that whole epilepsy/stairs story, and his sister fought for years to finally get to the bottom of this story, to finally get justice for his brother (she did in the end, thank God she did)

    The story is much longer than this, you can find it online if you are interested, but anyway, Alessio Cremonini decided to tell this story through a movie, he risked everything by doing this since in 2018 (but also today) it was still a story that’s hard to tell. Someone says that stefano deserved to die because he was a drug dealer, someone says that he didn’t, much like the debate it’s happening right now in the USA.

    This movie is powerful, heartbreaking, and generally beautiful, but not easy to watch. Give it a try because Alessandro Borghi is an amazing actor (i will post his acceptance speech about this movie too) and he did an incredible job. Damn to me it’s almost painful to watch this movie, but it reminds me why police brutality is not only an american problem, why we should abolish police and law enforcement, why we should keep fighting, for all the people that can’t and for all of them who still need to get justice. For those who died alone and in silence.
