It is important we speak not only of the interpersonal racism , but the structural and systemic racism that permeates throughout every institution in America . This president has emboldened White supremacy , but young black folks are saying NAH. From Charlottesville to the White House , white supremacy MUST go . It is an amazing feeling to watch statues crumble and fall and with that so will white supremacy. This isn't solely about the statutes but rather the normalcy of white supremacy throughout our institutions and presence of murderers, rapists, and thirds right smack in our face . #FUCKwhitesupremacy#fightsupremacy#defendcville#defenddurham#fundblackfutures#reparationsnow
I'm in a few of these images. What a beautiful morning it was. @badoherty14 was there but not on camera, I think. Thanks @shanna.lindsay for sharing.

One week ago today, I was in #Charlottesville as I began filming a six-part doc series for @natgeochannel. I spent 72 hours with the counter protesters leading up to the rally, some of which I shared on social media. I’ve had a week to try to process what I witnessed last weekend. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read my reflections and watch the video. Link in bio and stories.
It's past time to curb the excessive praise for any gesture of white solidarity. Telling white people to ignore overt white supremacists with microphones is both the most neoliberal shit and also the most unnecessary shit ever. As if masses of white people are considering showing up to resist racism. I have no admiration for famous white women who acknowledge Standing Rock and gets more praise for it than the innocent warriors who are still in jail.
