A mother’s worst nightmare.

She was preaching

this gave me chills

Black woman who lost her son just preached on systemic racism, antiblackness, Black ppls internalized self-hatred and white supremacy. 

But some of y’all missed it

It’s funny realizing how politically minded people think I am but actually my main belief in life is that farts are hilarious and the McDonalds tastes so good it’s evil. Also that when things are unfair or hurtful for others I can’t fully enjoy myself.
I haven’t gone to school for any of the things I talk about, I can’t tell you the last time I finished a book (not even a Guardian article), and I also roll my eyes when I think someone is politically correct just for the sake of being right or looking smarter, not because they actually feel something.
On that note… As of today all my main music things are fronted by women and/or queers and my first show of this new era is a celebration of the first woman elected to the Alberta Legislature. It just worked out that way.
Come to the Legislature at noon to see Jessica Jalbert (I’m on first bass).
Also Jessica opens tonight for Baby Eagle. Dude is from the Constantines.
Xoxoxo jenni(from my Facebook)further comments:me: Also, I think it’s important that when we celebrate the Famous Five for accomplishments in women’s rights that we also acknowledge how they pushed some deeply racist, anti-POC-immigrant and pro-eugenics issues to make room for white women only. I’m not saying that they should be discredited. But in these days of Reconciliation for residential school survivors, I want to see white politicians acknowledging the complexities of white heroes. That would be good.I’m in a discussion with myself here, I know, but I would also like to acknowledge the “but no one is critiquing male heroes like this” camp. That is true. That should also be happening.But that doesn’t mean that anyone gets a pass to be hateful because they are not a straight white man. Like, Dan Savage. That guy is an asshole. He only cares about gay white men and is actively hateful on other areas of oppression.[somebody else]: 
I agree completely! We need to acknowledge the shortcomings of our heroes and activists and we can’t give them a pass just because of common ideas or morality at the time like Emily Murphy and Gandhi.
me: Intersectionality is tricky. I don’t think it’s coincidence that I know about the short comings of Emily Murphy and Ghandi but not the scads of white male heroes.somebody: Yep, as those were the only two examples that sprang to my mind.

The 16-Year-Old Killer: Cyntoia’s Story (2012) 57min.

In 2004, Cyntoia Brown was arrested for the murder of a 43-year-old man. Cyntoia was a prostitute and he was her client. Film-maker Daniel Birman was granted unique access to Cyntoia from the week of her arrest, throughout her trial and over a period of six years. His documentary explores the tragic events in her life that led up to the murder, and Cyntoia’s biological mother meets he daughter for the first time since giving her up for adoption 14 years earlier. The film explores the history of abuse, violence, drugs and prostitution back through three generations. As Cyntoia faces a lifetime in prison, the programme asks difficult questions about her treatment by the American justice system.

A-m-e-r-i-c-a what’s that spell? INJUSTICE!!!

This really hurts my heart.
