The last 24 hours have been sickening, and I don’t know what to say that hasn’t already been said. We have to condemn white supremacy, terrorism, and literal-fucking-Nazism for what they are – especially when our disaster of a president refuses to.
Sending strength, solidarity, and support to those in Virginia who are facing the brunt of this hate, especially those whose loved ones were killed or hurt today, and to those all over the country who live constantly on high alert for this kind of violence, or who’ve faced it before. Fellow white folks: if you don’t know about Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), today’s a good day to learn.
Please take care of yourself and of each other. Recharge when you need to. Today will not be the end of this, just like it wasn’t the beginning.
