It’s been that way in Washington D.C.’s House of representatives and the U.S. Senate for far too long.
With the election of Barrack Obama, minorities in America came to falsely believe they were finally running things in America.
With the election of Donald Trump, they now believe America has taken a step back into the 19th century.
But as we have seen, as more minorities combine into a majority, they themselves are taking on the very cloak and mindset of oppression.
America and all it stands for is under attack by the least oppressed people in the world.
What should matter more, argued Juniperangelica Xiomara Cordova-Goff, a student senator at UC Berkeley, are the feelings of so-called marginalized students. (By marginalized he she means non-whites.)
“I am over the debate on this campus between UC Berkeley conservatives and those on the left who still have energy to argue.
Free speech has always been a tactic used by the state to grant the illusion that all voices in this nation are valued, yet there is a reason why Black female senators are discredited and why there is a white supremacist in the Oval Office.
Somewhere in all our political discourse, we lost the point.
We forgot that the people, the victims, the survivors of state violence we casually discuss are people living the experiences we have the privilege of discussing from a theoretical, omniscient perspective.”
I was shocked and traumatized. I want to say that I do not feel safe on this campus.
Living on the streets for six years did not prepare me for the violence of UC Berkeley.
We cannot let free speech become a tactic that asks oppressed people to tolerate their oppressors in hopes of peaceful compromise.
I guess I am just at the point where I’ve studied the genocide of my people and am tired of living it today.
See the entire article below.
I do not understand how we can fill the streets demanding justice and then magically separate ourselves from the movement to protect conservative voices who want a soapbox and our death certificates.
This has done nothing more than maintain the white supremacist, capitalistic and patriarchal nature that allowed colonizers to protect their power centuries ago and that has allowed their descendants to elect an openly racist, queerphobic, Islamophobic/xenophobic and anti-poverty adminstration”
“I’m not here for free speech. I’m here for Black lives.
I’m here for undocumented lives, queer and trans lives, femme lives, incarcerated lives and poor lives.
I am here for the lives Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter want dead. I am here for the lives Donald Trump wants to ban.
I am here for the lives BCR cannot fit in their “socially moderate, fiscally conservative”fantasy.”
I hope you are as enlightened as I am to know a confused nose-ring, dress wearing bearded Mexican man who thinks he’s a woman straighten out the hard working tax paying American about their awful right to free speech they have fought and died to protect is used to degrade them as White Supremacist!
The writer is very ignorant of recent history to think that this article would not be censored and banned in many places if it weren’t for the strong tradition of free speech and the legal protections for free speech – which she is trying to destroy.
Oh. delicate children, we of the real world urge you to stay in school and get a whole bunch of degrees because life outside those ivory tower walls is a F**KING CONTACT SPORT, KIDDIES.
Three words Mr. Ms. Juniperangelica Xiomara Cordova-Goff: Mental Health Expert!
