Squashing that Divide and Conquer mentality

Race is a touchy subject to discuss here in amerikkka because of the damage done by the original immigrants to this land. It continues to divide us. POC on one side, white people on the other and in the middle sits the white allies AND non-whites who choose to be socially unconscious. Discussion can be hard but it is so necessary if we are ever going to tear this corrupt system down. And we will.

“Yes, the Polynesian Panthers was an actual organization that stood for Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander unity by resisting anti-blackness and white supremacy. Yes, they modeled themselves after the Black Panthers. Yes, our people have forgotten about these shared struggles. But we have the power to remember and reclaim. Know history, know self. #BlackLivesMatter #OceaniaForJustice”
