We Did it While This Country was Trying to Kill Us
And we did it while this country was trying to kill us. Even though a deadly pathogen—police brutality, voter suppression, the coronavirus, white supremacy—take your pick) disproportionately attacked our communities. We did it because they were trying to kill us with knees on our necks, no-knock warrants, law and order, locking us up, sending us back, backing the blue and blocking our ballots from being counted.
It did not work.
It never will.
I’ll just leave this here.
