I went to visit a friend today. They’ve been in a very bad place mentally, and I felt I needed to visit, bring them food, medication, make sure they were stable enough to be left alone, as they attempted to take their own life recently. I know someone will say “Why not take said friend to a Hospital? Or call the Police and do a wellness check?” Well, I didn’t feel safe to. You see, my friend is Native, First Nations. Calling the police is as likely to kill them as to save them.

In Quarantine times

I need to self-isolate.

There’s a Pandemic, and I have a chronic illness. That would kill me, and I have to be here for my son.

I need to self-isolate.

People are refusing to wear masks, they “Can’t breathe”, not that that mattered to the unarmed black man who was smothered to death on live video.

I need to self-isolate.

No one else is isolating, no one is masking and I’m told “If you don’t want to get sick, stay home” So my question is, do YOU really want to get sick??

Dear White People

Settle down. This isn’t about us. This isn’t about our feelings.

We’re here to help uplift our brothers and sisters.  We’re here to amplify voices which feel unheeded.

All I hear are “All lives Matter” and arguments why that should be held as standard.

Well it’s not. It’s not held at standard at all

Police Brutality

I’d like to know how the NYPD (I’m assuming this is NYPD) is going to explain this. Rationalize arresting a nurse coming off shift.  Did she have a scalpel? Were you threatened with a non-consensual enema? I mean, I know we nurses can be intimidating but handcuffs seem a bit extreme.  Unless you’re looking to woo this frontline worker, (that last week were touted as ‘heroes’)  then I can confidently tell you, you are going about it exactly the wrong way.

Anyone still defending the police at this point? Anyone?

I have some bad news for you, snowflake. Not all lives matter. You know what lives matter? And the government has made it crystal clear…
