4/28/67 Ali rejected the draft very publicly - he was found guilty of draft evasion and stripped of his boxing titles. His words are still super relevant today.

Went and looked at a house this week in a beautiful affluent neighborhood. It was beautiful and seemed like a great deal. Not because I can afford but seriously because I’ve been figuring out what safety is for me. I’ve been casually looking at houses and places that might be easier to implement better safety measures for when my lease is up. COVID protocol limits contact with the people showing the house so it was just me, my realtor @chrisjnla & my assistant - all Black men. The only people. We signed Covid release forms beforehand. No realtor, just us. I had just come straight from work & was wearing all Black athletic wear as I always do. It was cold, so I had on a Black hoodie. My realtor was wearing a suit as he always does and made sure to tell the realtor managing the house what his car looked like & what time we were coming. I told @chrisjnla that I only saw white people walking and he told me that was the demographic of the neighborhood. We had to have a conversation about if that actually makes me safe and/or feel safe. Not too long after, as the sun was setting, someone who works for for the realtor stopped by the house and told my assistant he stopped by because he HAPPENED to be in the area and saw lights on and “someone in a black hoodie” and wanted to check on the place. He stayed to monitor for a while. Thank God they didn’t send the police. But still, what would have happened if I expressed my offense at what he was implying? My realtor emailed after we left to ask a few clarifying questions about the property and the experience. No response. This just strengthened my resolve to end anti-Blackness and redefine and reimagine safety. We’re taught to elevate ourselves into these “affluent” white neighborhoods for a safer existence, but we aren’t ever safe in anti-Black cultures. Tough convo but we really need to have it. What truly makes us safe. Affluence ain’t it. We have to follow these conversations up with action to begin building safe systems and communities that will replace these white Supremacist systems and culture that keep us unsafe, keep us walking on eggshells, and stay wearing on our mental health.

🤬 Correction: Ma’Khia Bryant. Start thinking of where we can remove police IMMEDIATELY - schools, mental health crises, substance abuse, the houseless community, HOLLYWOOD, entertainment events and sets, traffic stops, etc Let’s demand their removal and transfer of funds from police to specialized systems that replace police in these situations TODAY. Tell Congress to pass the Breathe Act! Demand your city councils and Mayor’s propose emergency legislation TODAY! Black children’s future depends on it. Black and Brown folks safety depends on abolition of police and prisons. Remove and replace them with better solutions until police, like the pay phone, are a thing of the past.

Also... I said “especially women of color” a few times because I was thinking of some non-Black women I am close with who have been doxxed and hurt and I clarified later talking about Black women specifically but I want to push even further that it happens ESPECIALLY TO BLACK WOMEN. Adrienne Marie Brown’s blog on this is an essential read. It’s in the link in my stories. I will add to my IG highlights.

We can have systems of nourishment, healthcare, education, housing, jobs, mental healthcare, accountability and love that our children and communities deserve. I know we can. Damn this hurts.

One of my favorite people in life. One the most forgiving, kind and hard working people I know. If you’ve heard her name, most know her as a freedom fighter. And that’s what she is. She is also an artist and lover of art. She’s a dope storyteller, bestselling author and a professor. She has co founded and helped build different organizations that have changed the landscape of LA and this country and is an exemplary coalition builder. This is why white supremacy finds her to be such a threat. I’ve met and become close with many of the people she has mentored and helped. She’s also a Black, queer woman who cares for her child, her mom, her brother who deals with a severe mental health disorder AND dedicates her life to liberation and Black ppl. There IS a coordinated, right wing, FUNDED effort to attack Black freedom fighters, RIGHT NOW. Turning us against each other. Dehumanizing us. LYING. Patrisse is currently the target. That’s not a conspiracy THEORY. It’s proven FACT. This is an effort to silence us by any means. They take kernels of truth and mix a bunch of conspiracy theories and blatant lies and then post their address on the internet! Death threats are coming directly to her house, with her CHILD (whom I love dearly) and her family! Black people and allies, if you want to find out if rumors are true among US, there ways of doing that without participating & putting our people’s lives at risk. We must protect each other - if we don’t, who will? We’ve seen this play out. Let’s change the course of history and say firmly - she belongs to us. She is ours. And we keep us safe! By any means necessary. Patrisse, thank you for teaching me how to understand the best principles to apply to interpersonal relationships - highest form of accountability involving restorative justice & transformation. Thank you for being there for me when I needed a literal safe haven. Thank you for creating a space of joy and fighting for us I love you & will fight for you. To anyone else, keep in mind: the right wouldn’t be investing so much money and effort to taking her out if they didn’t think she was essential to our freedom.

{SWIPE} Some thoughts from this week. 1st Slide: RP from @thetableisours - excerpt from podcast convo - FYI for anyone who doesn’t know “decorum” essentially means “appropriate” or polite behavior in alignment with society’s or an institutions expectation. So yeah - fuck decorum when lives are on the line. As Malcolm X said, “We’re nonviolent with people who are non violent with us.” P.S. they made me wear the headset 🤷‍♂️ 2nd slide - RP from @behappyforonce - police doing what police do - protecting white supremacy and putting Black people in danger. Literally 6 cops protecting a Nazi and pressuring a Black driver to take him wherever he needs to go. Slave catchers. And it’s obviously not confined to the south. Slide 3 - Seattle PD - Seattle Police had the highest number of police officers (that we know of) that were part of the white Supremacist raid on the Capitol. Slide 4 - still seeking justice for 1 year old Legend Smalls shot by @houstonpolice Slide 5 - Rest in power DMX Slide 6/7 - Rest in Power LaDonna Tamakawastewin Allard Slides 8/9/10 - I’ve heard so many times that it’s impossible to end qualified immunity. Proof that when we fight, we win. Let’s keep fighting and let’s keep winning.

I usually do my best to ignore this shit but this @cnn article that Cotton is referencing, written by Emma Tucker and Peter Nickeas is disgusting, dangerous Anti-Black propaganda directly targeting Black liberation movements. And of course Tom COTTON’s racist bitch ass would chime in - this is a direct response to the success of our movement. Blatant lies that people believe that end up adding to the torture, murder and state-sanctioned violence against our communities - disproportionately Black, Brown and Indigenous. They all need to be held accountable. I intentionally didn’t share the article because I don’t want to spread any more of that bullshit than was necessary. Feel free to check out his original tweet for yourself.

{SWIPE} I didn’t ever plan these pictures of Mawmaw looking up at me over the years. It happened cuz she felt so uncomfortable/self conscious looking at the camera and taking pictures. But I could always find a way to convince her 🖤 Today is Mawmaw’s 100th birthday! Yep! On April fools day! . But she wasn’t no fool. 🖤 I was praying and hoping we could celebrate here together but for those who don’t know... she passed in December because COVID is real, because depression is real... because mental health is important, because Black people are disproportionately TARGETED and because our government fucked us up with the way they handled it. Still haven’t even had a funeral. I wish it was one big April fools joke but... nah Anyway, I have much more rage to express but we’ve got enough going on with this trial and life in 2021. I’m angry, sad and tired af but I’m choosing in this moment as I write to focus on her living just shy of a century on this Earth!! Grateful for our time here and her transition to a better eternal existence. Love you Mawmaw, thank you for caring for me and loving me. I’m grateful for your presence with me always. Let’s dance together with the ancestors 🕺

My thoughts on the Derek Chauvin trial for the lynching of George Floyd. It is impossible for the system to give us justice or repair the harm done, not because it’s too big nor because the harm is too deep but because the system simply wasn’t created to provide justice, repair or healing. It was created to HARM. Not hold accountable. Not heal. It needs to be abolished.

My heart can’t break any more than this. 15 year veteran on the force. In my hometown, Houston. We need a whole new system. This one is ineffective and won’t ever be able to protect and serve our communities because it was founded for a different, corrupt and sinister purpose. Its purpose is offense, not defense. It’s purpose is to target us, not service us. It is extremely dangerous for us. It makes us less all less safe. Fuck this system. Let it burn all the way to its roots in Hell. Let’s build better. We can. We must. Praying for the family and especially the mother Daisha Smalls and of course for little baby Legend. Pic #repost from @bldpwr Also: The police used the excuse that they were pursuing Broderick Woods who was pulled over and had warrants. They shot and killed him as well. They said he was armed and wouldn’t drop his weapon. They say the entire interaction took 3-5 seconds. I want to be clear: he shouldn’t have been killed either. He deserved better than a 5 second trial in the streets with guns pointed at him. We deserve a system that can hold people accountable and go through the proper procedures to prove themselves innocent or guilty without being murdered or tortured. And Chief Acevedo as always is excusing this shit

{SWIPE} Another rough fucking week. Praying for, seeking and sending healing. #repost caption from @michellekimkim “Wow y’all. Why am I just finding out about this? (I know why). Mario Gonzalez was handcuffed and held in police custody while his wife, Delaina Yaun, lay dying inside the massage parlor. They were there to celebrate her quitting her job. How is the police being held accountable for this infuriating and unjust behavior?? I cannot. The way everything has unfolded — from the police’s coddling of the perpetrator to arresting the only brown man on-site — should remind us once again that they will not keep us safe. The only thing the police protects is white supremacy culture and the prison industrial complex. Asian fam, please raise awareness about what happened to Mario and demand justice for him, too.”

Standing with and fighting for all of those affected and targeted by Anti-Asian violence. We only eradicate this violence through coalition building and solidarity that is intersectional, introspective, radical, abolitionist and active. #repost @aapiwomenlead “Have an intersectional analysis about who is most impacted by violence: Asian, Pacific Islander, Black, Indigenous, Latinx and other cis + trans women of color have LONG been the most vulnerable to the intersections of state and gender-based violence. Those of us living and working in the informal economy, poor + working class, immigrant, undocumented, queer, elders + youth - have LONG been subject to violence at home, in communities, by the criminal justice system, racists + misogynists. This has been a part of our history - before many of our families immigrated here, on the way here, and while here - on stolen land. We are exhausted. Most of us come from families who are survivors of racialized colonial wars. We continue to fight. We will do this alongside those who will listen and center our analyses + our experiences. Don’t speak for us. Don’t speak on behalf of us. Do your homework. Allocate resources. Center our leadership + work alongside us. We have been at it for a long time and are here for the long haul - until all of us are free + well. In solidarity.”

The same anti-Blackness that devalues our art is the same anti-Blackness that devalues our lives. It’s the same anti-Blackness that leads to violence against people like Breonna Taylor and Rayshard Brooks and an endless list of our names. We have to move beyond diversity and inclusion into liberation. It has to become cultural. Abolition. #grammys2021 #Grammys full interview with @giulianarancic on @enews

This is what White Supremacy looks like. It’s not just blatant KKK Capitol coups and shit. It’s allowing wealthy white people (and white people in general) determine our value in budgets, positioning, marketing dollars, ad dollars, infrastructure etc and control our narratives. Let’s be clear: I ain’t interested in making white people and corporations 10 billion more dollars, especially not in the context of hyper capitalism. This is a fraction of our value and should enrage, invigorate and inspire us to hold folks accountable, abolish white supremacy and do things differently, build our shit collectively. Super proud of my entertainment attorney @johnvmeigsjr for his leadership in this - along with several other dope Black leaders that I greatly admire in this industry who met weekly. This is only part of that work. But want to give a special shout out to John because I know the sleepless nights, endless hours figuring out accountability and ways to build better for our people and your unquestioned support for me and @bldpwr work throughout this past year (and before)! #repost @johnvmeigsjr “What is the Financial Cost of Racism in Hollywood? $10 BILLION ANNUALLY!!! It’s not just about doing the right thing morally; it’s also about doing the right thing financially. By the way, senior management in the film industry is less diverse than in the oil, gas and mining industries!!! #10BillionInTheBlack #BlackLightCollective #McKonRace “

My mood today: I don’t give a fuuuuck cuz I’m so FUCKING grateful to have made it through undeniably THE ROUGHEST FUCKING YEAR of mine any many other’s lives!! GO DONATE @bldpwr This time last year... was a Sunday & I had flown in for a few hours (before flying out again to start a new job in Jersey) after campaigning all over the U.S. for Bernie Sanders, stopped in to have a bomb ass Birthday fundraiser for @bldpwr hosted by @we2bomb - the same thing I do every year - good food, good cause, good fun, good people!!! Probably the last authorized super spreader of the year. Some people were making fun of me because on the invitation I said I wasn’t gonna shake hands or hug. Still... I couldn’t resist hugging some people. Like my Mawmaw (RIP). Little did I know, those few hugs I snuck in would hold me through the year. We couldn’t have predicted that 5 days later QUARANTINE would be the conversation and experience of the world. Even though I can’t do what I do every year, I am doing it in spirit. Most proud of the work @bldpwr team & our community has done this past year in gathering mental health resources, playing an integral part in the streets supporting @blmlosangeles #JackieLaceyMustGo @mvmnt4blklives #BLM #DefundThePolice, supporting @blackvisionscollective, the #CancelRent @housingjustice4all @moms4housing movement, #Hollywood4BlackLives demands, helping @reimagine_la pass Measure J, hosting fundraisers, Reimagine Public Safety with #PeoplesBudgetLA, helping remove the orange white Supremacist in chief from office. This is by no means an exhaustive list but DAMN it came with a whole lot of TRAUMA (feels like 10 years) but today I’m focused on how proud I am to be a part of such an incredible community of some of the best, fiercest most loving radical warriors and builders in the WORLD. I don’t have enough room to name everyone. My close circle, you know how you are, thank you for focusing on my wellbeing and helping me on my healing journey. The world has transformed in a year. While devastating in many ways, the liberation that transpired in people’s minds & imagination gives me hope that abolition and wellness is possible.
