The racistincheif recently refused to say @ocasio2018 full name at his N.C. rally, saying “it was too long”. At this same event, his supporters also created a chant saying “send her back” regarding our impeccable 4 WOC congresswomen. #OurSquadIsBig If you’re dripping in white privilege, you probably haven’t thought about his racist remarks about “going back to their countries”. Let me tell you something.
We are not going anywhere. This country is made by immigrants. My blood is new here (I’m gonna smear it all over this country) as a product of my parents’ perseverance and no bigotry will corrupt my hope, it will only make us stand stronger.
Would this harmful behavior ever be granted to group of males by him? To military? To white people? Not giving up on humanity has become another full time job I’ve carried for the last 3+ years around the corrosive and divisive administration and blatant and disgusting racism people call a president. #NotMyPresident
If you haven’t done anything recently anti-racist in real life, what the fuck are you doing? There are books, podcasts, educators, workshops, seminars, communities, documentaries, websites, classes, movies, the lists go on in ways to defeat this and it starts with white people. Brown and black communities have done so much. There is nothing more American than access to education— how are you making this country better by remaining complacent?
María Cristal Rodriguez is my name, and if you can’t say my full name, you’re in the wrong place. Wake up and out of your white supremacy nightmare.
To all my brown, BIPOC siblings, I hope you’re giving yourself permission to take care of yourself as often as you need. I am always here for you.
