Cars, Community, and Love: "Don't fight hate with hate" is an example of subtle GASLIGHTING. Where our legitimate hurt and anger at the injustices we suffer is being equated to the bigotry and abuse of our oppressors. Being angry doesn't mean you are being hateful, it means you love yourself enough to get upset at your own mistreatment CREDIT: frontier-heart <p><a href="http://friendly-neighborhood-patriarch.tumblr.com/post/170760269792/rootedinfiction-psiotechniqa-takashi0" class="tumblr_blog">friendly-neighborhood-patriarch</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://rootedinfiction.tumblr.com/post/170649718178/psiotechniqa-takashi0-guzmas-beautifly" class="tumblr_blog">rootedinfiction</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://psiotechniqa.tumblr.com/post/170649284658/takashi0-guzmas-beautifly-being-angry-is-one" class="tumblr_blog">psiotechniqa</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://takashi0.tumblr.com/post/170648264011/guzmas-beautifly-being-angry-is-one-thing-being" class="tumblr_blog">takashi0</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://guzmas-beautifly.tumblr.com/post/170578603445/being-angry-is-one-thing-being-hateful-is" class="tumblr_blog">guzmas-beautifly</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Being angry is one thing, being hateful is another. You are allowed to be angry but don’t use said anger to be an asshole and come close to end up being the same as the enemy.</p></blockquote> <p>Someone: “When your ‘oppressors’ outnumber you on a large scale and you use violence against them when you have proven viable alternatives, they will retaliate in kind. When your first and only resort is violence, bigots will use your actions to convince people that your cause isn’t one of peace or justice, but of violence, and thus you create more enemies and defeat your own cause.” </p> <p><b>Frontier-heart, and other assholes who want excuses to grab power and abuse others: “WHAT IS THIS <i>GASLIGHTING </i>BULLSHIT??????????”</b></p> </blockquote> <p>“How dare you say we’re not allowed to smash things and hurt people we don’t like!?”<br/></p> <p>good grief</p> </blockquote> <p>Anger and hatred are not the same thing. Anger is seeing an injustice done and gathering together to peacefully protest that grievance. Hatred is smashing businesses that had nothing to do with the injustice, burning cars belonging to people in the community, and spraying someone in the face with pepper spray when their only offense is to disagree with your position. <br/></p> </blockquote> <p>but WERE THE VICTIMS.

Colin Kaepernick, Community, and Memes: Colin Kaepernick Has Reportedly Agreed To Sit Down With NFL Players and Owners to Talk Racial Inequality and lssues @balleralert Colin Kaepernick Has Reportedly Agreed To Sit Down With NFL Players and Owners to Talk Racial Inequality and Issues – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Just weeks after the initial meeting between NFL players and owners to discuss racial issues within the community and possible solutions regarding the national anthem controversy, ColinKaepernick has reportedly agreed to attend the next meeting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to Yahoo Sports, Kaepernick has agreed to sit down with the same people he recently filed a grievance against. Sources tell the publication that the meeting will take place sometime next week, to continue the discussion about league’s involvement in social activism. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Kaepernick was invited to the first meeting, he declined in fear that the NFL would be opposed to his attendance. This time, however, the league says it looks forward to the conversation, as several players have said Kaepernick is important to their efforts against racial inequality. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While the league’s national anthem policy remains the same, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has expressed that he would prefer players to stand during the anthem. But, it is still not required.
