Anger, rage and grief need to be expressed. Please do not hold back your truth, please find a way to show your pain, your sorrow, your shame and anger without destorying another.
Please listen to those whom do not comply, COMPLIANCE IS NOT PRESENCES. Rules are made up and they create paradigms. We are witnessing and are overdue for a new paradigm of embodied anger, relational connection and inclusive power. .
This is a longer distance run ahead of us and I hope it vibrates through all of us. I am horrified at how we treat each other and inspired by the courage it takes to say FUCK THIS! I am with you and I am sorry it took a virus, hundreds of years, death, toxic shame, heartache and torture mental, physical and emotional.
I recently held the hand of someone I care about deeply. We stood outside on street in Ontario, we were looking at a house. Perhaps to 2 mins passed. He said: "okay we have to go" I asked why? He told me "I can't stand outside and look at house, I am black man. Someone will call the cops". My stomach dropped, I felt so much, anger, shock and shame. This is what his lived experience taught him. I felt heartbroken, it's 2020 and he does not feel safe to stand on a street and look at a house. I ignorantly asked how many times has the cops been called on you? Holding my breath for the recounting of stories I hoped I could count on one hand. I was flooshily wrong. More times then he could count. Then the retelling of the most ridiculous situations and the insane amount of reasoning he would attempt with police, to explain his existence 💔 as not a crime and not an intention of crime.
Please speak, whatever you have to share, feel, remember. Please act in alignment with a necessary rebellion and protest.
