1,459 days to election 2020. Man, if you thought I was a mouthy bitch to racists before.....Native people...our peoples come from 525 years of resisting white racism. Of resisting hating, and genocide, and obliteration. We will resist this.
The good news, is there are actually less racists than not, judging by the popular vote. I take heart that it's not people, it's the Settler system
Yeah, it's a half and half battle, but it's not a mandate. It's not a vacuum. What it IS, is a fight. It's a bloody war waiting for us. Too much blood has been spilled, in Sanford, in Ferguson, in Winslow, the Crow Reservation, in Neshoba County. I hope no more is spilled
Black Lives Matter, still, always & forever. Indigenous Nations matter, & so do our lives. We have resisted for 525 years. 4 more is doable. I am heartened that it is the system that has failed us, and that there aren't as many racists out there as I feared. Systems can be changed.
So yeah, I will resist. I will work to improve the lives of Indigenous people in my small ways. And to everyone scared, grieving or sad? I am too, but I am with you. And I promise
But levity aside, take time to take care of yourselves and your families. Take hope that Indigenous people have always resisted, & join us. join us at Standing Rock. Learn from your Native communities. Resist despair, and claim hope as your own. This is not the end.
Hillary won the popular vote by 151,116.

Trump is not the answer. Clinton is not. Stein, Sanders? Not the answer. Black Justice, Disabled Rights & Native Sovereignty is the answer.
Black Lives Matter. Native Nations’ Sovereignty is vital. #MMIW deserve justice#CripTheVote does good. #NoDapl, still.
The bigots, racists, and misogynists have scored a terrible victory that will lead to more deaths. Black Folks’ lives are at risk. Disabled people WILL die over this. Same w/ LGBTQIA folks. All the more reason to resist, every time.
Native Sovereignty, Native lives, it’s all on the line. Now more than ever is the time to support one another & resist the darkness. Find your way. Take care of yourself, and take care of one another. We’ve resisted worse ( our attempted genocide) & we can fight this.
We have to. I have to, ‘cause even though I’m LGBT, disabled, & Indigenous, I have to do right by my 6 year old son. No matter what comes.
And yes, I will need support too. http://j.mp/2fDa9Cs or https://www.paypal.me/CyborgN8VMari . A dollar or two helps more than you know. So does sharing And if you can't support me with a $1, that's OK, RT if you can, take care of yourself too. Support #NoDAPL. Support Black lives. Resist!
Spoonies. Take your meds. Stay hydrated. Eat. Rest. Take a self care day.
I am tired, and still fighting this infection so I'm going to go rest. To my supporters, THANK YOU, to my friends, -•hugs• others: resist!
