Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! For now, I’ve returned from my Joiyssey to participate in the "revolution":I’ve been at many Occupy sites across the country:1st in D.C. Freedom Plaza I faced & challenged racism/white supremacy, sexism/patriarchy, classism, heterosexism & eventually was kicked off the island; then I offered workshops as I drove to CA:“Anti-Racism Geared for White Occupiers”; “NO DRONES” "Successes and Pitfalls of OWS"

We are NOT done...

I'm deeply disappointed in "We are NOT done" - their white maleness is sooooo obvious (or else their extremely internalized misogyny and racism). This is my post:

The two things that are grossly (at best) or criminally (closer to the truth) missing from above 'list' of our 'issues' (Stop the gridlock, reduce spending, universal voting system, tax the rich, etc.) are RACISM and MISOGYNY, which means "we are not done" is attempting to tweak the current system to bring them more privileges that they believe they are entitled to, instead of calling for REVOLUTION: DECOLONIZING our country, our world, our beings; DISARMING the military, police, all men; and DESTROYING the military/prison industrial complex, wall street, and the amerikan nitemare(dream)!

As long as we do not face the legacy we've been handed that this country was founded for, built for, grown for - and continues for - the benefit of white people at the 'detriment'(at best) of people of color, there will be no change. As long as we do not face the propaganda, myths, lies that make up the very fabric of this nation, we will perpetuate those myths, etc., even as we claim we are not done.
