#JakelinCaal. From @glowmaven - “A story broke about a Guatemalan girl who passed away in custody after crossing the border. She had not eaten or had anything to drink in days, sustained a fever over 105 degrees, which is beyond dangerous & results In febrile seizures and death. They didn’t get her medical attention for 90 minutes. _ DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen saId “This family chose to cross illegally.” _ Choice? Let’s talk about choice. Choice is an act of selecting or making a decision when faced with two or more possibilities, a possible course of action. This is not a choice. To leave your home, your homeland, your family, your customs to travel a deadly path to a foreign land where you don’t speak the language, be met with resistance and arrest... to risk your life to hopefully make it to the USA... THAT IS NOT A CHOICE!!!! People are leaving because they have NO choice. Who wants this??? Nobody wants to choose death. They are fleeing violence and unlivable conditions. _ Just because there seem to be options doesn’t mean there is choice- for those who are privileged to walk freely, in comfort and safety- this may seem like a bad choice- but it’s an illusion of choice. No one wants to put their children in harms way. The U.S. is a well resourced country, there is no good reason for anyone to die in the custody of border patrol. Neglecting the dire medical needs of a 7 year-old baby- that’s a choice. To see someone else as beneath you and mistreat them because they are from another country- that’s a choice. To deny basic human rights- that’s a choice. To spray tear gas on women and children at the border- that’s a choice. To physically pull children apart from their families and separate and deport parents with no intention or plan for reuniting- that’s a choice. Detaining 15,000 migrant children in camps- that’s a choice. To blame immigrants for all of your problems- that’s a choice. To punish immigrants escaping peril and seeking asylum, that’s a choice. _ Letting a child die as if her life never mattered to begin with... that’s a choice. What is this place? Don’t talk to me about choice!!! Choose the side of history you want to stand on!”

Repost from @thelingerieaddict . This resonates deeply with me. I remember when I first became aware of my privilege and the oppression that so many people (people of color, women, trans folx, etc) face that I never had to think about. And I remember learning that if I wanted to change the world for the better, I had to be willing to challenge people and systems in ways that often make others uncomfortable. Some people interpret this as “not nice” because they don’t want to be challenged and have their hypocrisy pointed out. # “Niceness” and “getting along” with people were once qualities that I saw as some of the highest values that one could have. And while I still think that these things are “nice,” there are many more important qualities to develop. Every person on the front lines of working towards equal rights throughout history and presently, has faced charges of being “divisive,” and “unkind” (these are often the least severe things one can be called when it is aimed at people from marginalized identities). # Feminists and/or anti-racist activists face harsh criticism for not “doing it the right way” when we advocate for equal rights and human dignity. But usually this comes from people who have no history of fighting for equality. And from those who have the privilege not to think about these issues because they aren’t oppressed by them. We need more people of privilege committed to freedom, justice, and equality rather than “niceness.” Because what is niceness really worth, if it’s really just an excuse to preserve the status quo?

Love this piece by my friend and incredible artivist (artist and activist) Favianna Rodriguez ( @Favianna1 )!!! I am so honored to have this piece in my home. I greatly respect Favianna’s work, as an artist and an activist, and deeply appreciate how much of herself she puts into all of it with great transparency. She’s also having a holiday sale right now...details below! 2nd photo is @osopepatrisse , @favianna1 and I heading down to the border in solidarity with immigrant communities. # About this piece called “Balance”: “I created this print series in honor of my commitment to work less, and to stop judging myself in relation to how productive I am. Instead, I desire a life of balance - a life that is equal in play and work.  Like many other high achievers, I work all the time. 12-15 hour days are normal for me. Although I really love doing art, I also want to learn how to have down time, engage in more pleasureable activities, and be more present for those I love. I feel guilty when I'm not working on my never ending list of stuff. I make up all kinds of excuses for why I need to work late night and weekends. Everything feels urgent. I grew up seeing my parents work 2-3 jobs, always in the hustle - and it's such an ingrained part of who I am. But I imagine another future for myself. I want to break free of the mental limits of our productivity oriented society. I want to make more room for nothingness, for joy, for pleasure and for lots of fucking.” # “There’s still time to get your loved ones one of a kind art works! Shop link is in @favianna1 bio (bit.ly/faviannastore ) Please put in your orders no later than Mon. Dec. 17th for guaranteed pre-holiday delivery. And please choose priority shipping. Our shop will not be doing shipments from Dec 22 - Jan 4. Use the discount code HOLIDAY for 10% off entire purchase.”

"Breaking the Habit Of Being Yourself: How To Lose Your Mind and Create a New One" by Dr. Joe Dispenza # My silly face is a play on the trippy cover of this book that looks like a Pink Floyd music video and also the awe of self-transformation that I've been going through in the past few months. @JLoveCalderon , who recommended this book to me, has been a light in my life. Through working together in coaching, I have been challenged in ways that I never knew I needed to be, and my life, my career, my art and my activism has blossomed in beautiful ways in just a few months. I will write more in-depth about this at a later point. :) # Much of what JLove and I talk about is learning to let go of old stories that we tell ourselves about who we are. These stories keep us stuck, recreating the same life conditions that often limit us and return us to negative beliefs that actually feel comfortable for us. We believe them to be a part of us because they have been for so long. But they don't need to be. # This book definitely taps into much of what JLove and I have been working on, and in large part, that is why I appreciate it. I have yet to do the meditations that are a big portion of the book, but the information itself I have found incredibly valuable. One part that has truly blown my mind is the "observer effect" in quantum physics, and how Dr. Dispenza connects to one's ability to manifest and create new realities for ourselves (can be seen in the second slide I posted). # As my consciousness has grown around systems of oppression, I have had resistance to some of the language and ways of being of the self-help community. While I do believe that many of us are capable of immense growth and finding our own happiness, there MUST be a recognition that systems of oppression undeniably DO affect people's lived realities. Self-help is great, but if we are ever to reach a greater level of consciousness and spiritual awakening, we must use our own empowerment to dismantle the systems that oppress the marginalized. Not just through charity, but through solidarity. # My Booklist: bit.ly/mcgreads (link in bio) #McGReads

Mourning dead bigots by pretending like they weren’t responsible for the catastrophic loss of human life is the making of modern-day Confederate statues. # Why don’t we just tell the truth now, and maybe we won’t have to tear those statues down in 50 years? This kind of de-politicization of an actual politician is a privilege afforded to only those who have the privilege to not have family and friends or themselves have been impacted by Bush Sr. (or whoever else’s) bigoted policies and beliefs. # The legacy of ones personality traits should be buried by the marginalized bodies stacked impossibly high from your hateful policies. I saw one quote from one of his friends that “he never hated anyone.” What a gross display of privileged whitewashing. # First meme by me. 2nd, 3rd, 4th from @nyc4revolution # Second clip reposted from @democracynow - “George H.W. Bush died on the eve of World AIDS Day, an irony not lost on many HIV/AIDS activists who remember the 41st president of the United States for his lack of action in the 1990s as the HIV/AIDS crisis raged on. "By the time he left office, about 100,000 people had died of AIDS here in the United States, about more than a million had died globally," recalls Steven Thrasher. The Bush administration also created a refugee camp at Guantanamo Bay in 1991 where Haitian refugees were tested for HIV and sterilized by the U.S. government without their knowledge. This week we focused on Bush's legacy, from Panama to Iraq. Find the coverage at democracynow.org or listen to the podcast from Monday, Dec. 3. #georgehwbush #hiv #aids #lgbt “

"No One Is Illegal: Fighting Racism and State Violence on the U.S.-Mexico Border" by #JustinAkersChacón and #MikeDavis (this and other books currently 50% off at @haymarketbooks ) # This 357 page book is incredibly eye-opening, and provides a sweeping entry-point into understanding the current conversation about the U.S.-Mexico border that has deep roots in history and U.S. attempts to control labor, and thus capital. # As a person living in California, I found it very useful to learn about the long and brutal labor history in this state and how the legacy of racial and immigrant oppression has served to siphon money away from the poor and working class, into the hands of the elite. The close relationship of racist vigilantes, the KKK, the police (ever heard "Cops and Klan go hand-in-hand?"), and business owners that serve(d) to break up chances at solidarity of workers in order to organize for better wages and conditions continues to this day. And the particular vulnerability of the undocumented worker provides an easily exploitable upper-hand for those who want to drive the cost of labor downwards. With the threat and reality of deportation looming, it becomes very hard to form a united front. And as racism and nativism is stoked, it prevents (and always has) a true united working class that could more effectively work together to fundamentally restructure the economy of the United States. # Republicans AND Democrats have been guilty of dehumanizing policies that continue to exploit the labor of immigrants (and especially undocumented immigrants), destroying the lives of people being deported and those losing their lives crossing the border in more severe climates (which was intentional on the part of the US. govt). And so many of the people attempting to cross into the U.S. are doing so as a result of fucked up international U.S. policies that have widened inequality and brought unnecessary war abroad. Mostly in the name of money and power (aka capitalism aka neoliberalism). # My Booklist bit.ly/mcgreads (link in bio) #mcgreads

These are not in the correct order of which I experienced them, but I wanted to place the most beautiful one first. The clouds shifted in the course of 15 minutes on my plane ride to #Memphis as we flew through storm weather. I had never seen it so quickly become pitch black outside and a moment of turbulence fully knocked me up and out of my seat, Tower of Terror style, the seatbelt keeping me from flying all the way up. A breathtaking view of the beauty and power of Mother Nature.

Don’t get it twisted. The people at the top want you to blame the people at the bottom (and below you) on the hierarchy of social power. Keeps you from focusing on the real, bigger structural issues and the people in power who perpetuate them for their own profits. # Seen on @jlovecalderon ‘s from @justinomora1 .

True story. I was born a dragon in Slovenia 547 years ago. Here is photographic evidence (yes, us dragons had cameras hundreds of years before you idiot fuckin humans). Last photo is a photo of my mother (the most famous dragon in Slovenia) on the famous dragon bridge. Yes. I’m still a dragon. Please don’t ask me to spit fire for you. It’s fucking annoying and people ask all the time.

Repost from @moustachemannyc - “This week I hiked through the foothills of Altadena, CA with @mattmcgorry in search of Owen Brown’s gravesite. Owen was instrumental in his father John Brown’s abolitionist activities. He killed one of the pro-slavery thugs in the so-called “Pottawatomie Massacre,” fought in the Bleeding Kansas wars to secure Kansas as a free state, and followed his father and brothers to Harper’s Ferry, where he gathered intelligence on slaveholders in the area. He was the only Brown to make it out of Harper’s Ferry alive, leading four other raiders through the woods in an escape that lasted weeks. He went on to serve as an officer in the Union Army during the Civil War and moved to California with his sister Ruth and brother Jason. He spent his last years living in the hills of Altadena in a log cabin with Jason (standing on the right in the last photo, next to Owen). When he died in 1889, a crowd of 2,000 people (nearly the entire population of Pasadena) marched from his funeral up to the gravesite. Ten years later a stone marker was placed on the site, reading “Owen Brown, Son of John Brown, The Liberator. Died Jan. 9, 1889. Aged 64 Y’rs.” Over the next hundred years, admirers of #OwenBrown and his father would hike up to his grave and pay their respects. Opponents made their way up there as well. The marker was thrown down the hill so many times and dragged back up by supporters that a stone base was eventually added to it. In 2004 it was removed again and remained missing until it was found in 2012 by the artist Ian White. Ian’s father, by the way, is the legendary artist Charles White, who has a retrospective at the MoMA now. Apparently #CharlesWhite depicted only two white men in his artwork over the course of his career. #JohnBrown was one of them. Today Owen Brown’s stone marker is hidden in a secure location until the community can figure out how best to protect it. A hollow replica was installed by residents last year in a small park in town. At Owen’s gravesite the only marker is a decaying wooden sign with a significant portion chipped away. An unfitting monument to a man who risked everything for Black liberation."

Repost from @mspackyetti - “swipe to see history repeated: 2018, tear gas @ the US-Mexico border 2016, tear gas @ Standing Rock 2014, tear gas in Ferguson ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Surrendering for the asylum process at the border is a fully legal act. So is first amendment protest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unless, of course, your skin is brown, it seems. ::: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Tear gas under the Geneva Convention is characterized as a chemical warfare agent, and so it is precluded for use in warfare, but it is used very frequently against civilians,” said Sven-Eric Jordt, a nerve gas expert at Yale University School of Medicine. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “That’s very illogical.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ::: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was summer 2015. The STL police had killed at least 7 unarmed black men in a year. On this day, STL City police had killed Mansur Ball-bey in his own backyard at Page & Walton, a block from my church. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So, the Ferguson protestors and local activists showed up as we always do. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And they tear gassed us again. This time, they demanded the street be cleared-and then rode up and down the street gassing the sidewalks even though we had complied. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @wyzechef and i had to run into a nearby friend’s house; my 80 year old Godmother was trapped inside her walk-up duplex. And because it was a hot summer day, the doors & windows of my church were open-and gas drifted into where my mother was teaching Bible study. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ::: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A week later, I was at work, meeting with @thelookbykeo, and all week, I had sounded like a pack-a-day smoker even though I’ve never touched a cigarette in my life. Shaterra insisted I cancel my afternoon & go to the doctor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ::: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I was diagnosed with a bruised lung from the gas exposure. The doctor was sure that the most recent gassing contributed. She wasn’t sure if previous gassings did also-there is little long term research on the effects of this chemical, because there are “so few victims.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They look pretty intent on growing the number to me.“

Repost from @chescaleigh - “Everything you know about #Thanksgiving is wrong. *swipe* to watch my favorite throwback episode of #MTVDecoded can’t believe this was way back in 2015!! - - While this video is full of truth bombs, it isn't about ruining your holiday. I realize Thanksgiving is important to many of us. But it's important to acknowledge our nation's TRUE history and respect that this holiday is difficult for some for all sorts of reasons including by not limited to their ancestry. Ok PSA over.

The holidays are upon us! Thankstaking is tomorrow! # White folx, WILL YOU COMMIT to having bold conversations about race with the other white people that you are spending the holidays with??? *Link in bio for tools to help with this!* # The call has been out for a long time. Folx of color have been asking white people to have these conversations for forever. When we don’t engage, our silence is approval. # White folks...we NEED to be having bold and uncomfortable conversations with each other about race. Learning how to have difficult but necessary conversations are an extraordinarily important skill for building our best lives and also for creating a world that is free from oppression. And like anything else that we are not practiced in, it will take diligence and commitment to do so in the best possible way. # So again, I am asking YOU...will you commit? Will you commit to learning more about how racism operates in our everyday lives? Will you commit to leaning into discomfort, even when you don’t feel like you have the perfect answers? And will you commit to the practice of having effective dialogue about these issues? # I’m beyond thrilled that I was able to partner with @colorofchange and #ShowingUpForRacialJustice in this, and hope it serves as a useful resource as well for people of color to point well-intentioned white folx towards. # Go to bit.ly/boldconversations to learn more, (or click the link in my bio) and text SOS to 82623 for helpful tips and talking points to help you easily navigate your bold conversation about race. # With love & liberation.

This holiday season, I'm challenging fellow white people to use their time with family to have difficult conversations around the dinner table. I'm talking about race. Race is a social construct, but racism is real. It's time for white people to show up and talk about its impact on Black people and other marginalized groups. Join me, @ColorOfChange and #SURJ as we dismantle white supremacy. .

Repost from @theeggisyou # “Had a bit of a setback yesterday. Something hit me hard reminding me that my feelings and emotions around some things were still very raw and that I was still hurting and that even hearing of similar suffering sent me back to my own experiences and gave me flashbacks. But then I was reminded of this artwork by @frizzkidart. Healing isn’t a linear process. How many times I’ve said and written that! But yesterday I started going into a spiral thinking I sat with this for a year the next year I focused on turning to solutions (therapy, medication and also looking at what I can do to change things), I started freaking out that if two years of creating intentional space for healing wasn’t enough - how long will it take? But I know healing isn’t linear. So it’s okay if I have days I’m not okay. It’s okay if I relapsed, or had flashbacks, or felt intense emotions around something, yes it’s still raw but that’s okay, because maybe one day it won’t be. Maybe one day I’ll be able to hear about certain things that triggered me with empathy for myself and others. Maybe one day i’ll let the emotions pass without panic and tell myself it’s okay. I’m okay! . I saw this come up for so many people the last couple of days. Sending you so much love. As @yassmin_a said to me “we’ll get through this”. Inshallah we will. . . . #cultureofcare #healingisnotlinear #healingisaprocess #itsokaynottobeokay “

Repost and caption below from @bodyposipanda # “Don't get it twisted, there is no weight where people stop being worthy of respect. Point blank. End of story. To anyone who wants to put a weight limit on body positivity and say that some people are taking it "too far" - what you're really saying is that after a certain size people should be made to feel like they aren't valuable, like they aren't worthy of respect or dignity. Because THAT is what body positivity is trying to teach people, that every body is worthy of respect. And creating a cut-off point based on your own internalised fatphobia goes against everything body positivity stands for as a movement. And I hear you - what about people's health? Well, in short: - Health is a million times more multi-dimensional than weight and weight alone and you will never know someone's health just from looking at them. - Putting an 'as long as you're healthy' requirement on body positivity is ableist and exclusionary. - Someone's health isn't a marker of whether they're worthy of respect either. Seriously. - Mental health is health too, and fatphobia & weight stigma are proven to cause negative health outcomes in and of themselves. - Stop using 'health concern' as an excuse for not wanting to see fat bodies. It's tired and we see through it. There is no too fat where people stop being worthy of respect, stop being valuable, or should be made to hate themselves. And if you believe that there is, then you really don't believe in body positivity at all. P.s. this quote obviously applies to all genders and not only women • [Image description: a Tumblr post from thedefenderrs that reads "Let fat women be happy. If seeing fat women being happy makes you angry or uncomfortable you really should look at yourself and figure out wtf is wrong with you."] #bodypositive #bodypositivity “

This original tweet was taken (re stolen) from @kenchengcomedy by a white man. The shitty irony of this is overwhelming given that the tweet is partially a reference to white people getting credit for what POC often get ignored or criticized for (in the lightest terms). Thanks @munroebergdorf for posting the correction.

"Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead" by @BreneBrown # Just recently, I was with a friend of mine grabbing some food during what we had determined would be a chill, early bedtime, night. We met a group of fun people who asked him to get drinks and then announced to the group that "we are going to get a drink!" Knowing that we had agreed to make it a relaxed night, I did not feel like that was the vibe we were about to be in. And knowing myself...I'm never really a "1 drink, hang out for an hour person." If I am out, then I am OUT. While my friend had asked me what I wanted to do, I tossed it back to him, to which he said he was down to go with the flow. I knew that we wanted to be up at a reasonable time the next morning, and in my mind, knew that this would likely prevent that from happening. # The next morning, we got up late and I was tired from having a late (and fun!) night out. It made our original plans a bit harder. It wasn't until maybe two days later, that I realized I was holding on to some anger and resentment about how things went down. Using a tool from the book, I said "this is the story that I'm making up in my head," and told him that in the moment of deciding to go out, I felt like he didn't really care what I wanted to do. And my own fear of coming off as "needy" or "having too many needs" prevented me from being fully expressed about what I wanted, or asking for a minute to discuss our plans more fully. A lifetime of conditioning as a man has told me that having "too many needs" is the opposite of what men are supposed to be. We are "supposed to be" self-sufficient and stoic, not vulnerable. # When I fully realized what was happening in me, I was able to express to him the shame I felt in having a need to "talk it out," not feeling able to express my needs, and the additional shame of holding onto resentment when it came to one of my best friends. Our conversation blossomed, and as with most moments where radical vulnerability is shared, it made us even closer, deepening our connection as friends.

It’s important to celebrate when we accomplish something together when are in the Movement for the long haul. We know that voting is just one tool, and that mobilizing, base building and organizing is truly where the power to create change is. I want to start by acknowledging and honoring Black Women who have continued to trailblaze in their bold and powerful leadership. I am blessed to have powerful Black Women in my life with whom I share this journey toward justice together. Thank you to the phenomenal nonbinary leaders of color who are leading the way! We also have our first ever Somali-American and Muslim Woman in Congress. So many amazing firsts… * * Also want to acknowledge in my hometown in LA we ousted Sheriff McDonnell and now have Alex Villanueva, who has made significant promises to community groups and we plan to hold him accountable. S/o to my comrade @osopepatrisse and so many others in this huge effort! * * CALLING-IN WHITE PEOPLE, especially white women *continued in comments* We must, must, must do better ya’ll. We must dust off the indoctrination of white supremacy and truly overstand our humanity is at stake until we SHOW the FUCK UP and work toward a vision of true freedom and Liberation for all people. We gotta Do.The.Work. * * Shout out to all badass Black, Latinx women, indigenous, nonbinary, and explicitly anti-racist white women organizers and leaders. I see you. I acknowledge you. I honor you! * * NOW LET’S ORGANIZE! * Pic 3: Grace Lee Boggs

Tomorrow is the day to vote in midterm elections (see below for voter guide!!!). For those who are eligible to vote, it is an important tool in fighting for the change that we want. But don't get it twisted, it is far from being the only way to make change. And it is important that we be organizing and building collective power to create the changes that our country so desperately needs. # @BYP100 has put together a progressive voter guide for Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Texas, Washington D.C. and Wisconsin. You can find it here or click the link in my bio: https://bit.ly/2JDkn2p # For California/Los Angeles voters, check out the voting guide in my Instagram story highlights from @kendrick38 and @mrmikedelarocha # If there was ever a time, it is NOW. How much worse will we continue to watch it get from the sidelines before we are willing to really push outside our comfort zones and do the things that we know we should be doing?
