America, Children, and Fire: Shaun King @ShaunKing Only in America can whiteness prevent the man who conducted the deadliest mass shooting in American history from being called a terrorist. 10/2/17, 8:01 AM li View Tweet activity 872 Retweets 1,446 Likes Note: This is being called the "deadliest mass shooting in US history." However, there have been several massacres of Native Americans by the US military and militias (Wounded Knee Massacre, Mountain Meadows Massacre in 1857, Tulsa Massacre in 1921, to name a few). The Wounded Knee Massacre was devastating β€” about 250 Native Americans were killed by American troops in the late 1800s. Only one man faced prosecution for the Mountain Meadows Massacre, but it was actually a Mormon militia that killed 120 men, women and children. The Tulsa Massacre ended with about 300 people killed by mobs of white people. People say the shooting in Vegas was the deadliest mass shooting because a gunman opening fire on a public space is what "mass shooting" has come to mean these days. We don't tend to put massacres involving military or quasi-military actors and those perpetrated by a group in that category. Before the 20th century, few mass murders were perpetrated by a single person. TLDR: The definition has changed over time. Whether or not you want to use this definition, it's important to remember Native history and the horrible massacres of this time, while also understanding the context and scale of the most recent shooting in Las Vegas.

America, Independence Day, and Lgbt: LGBT if you ain't excited about 4th of july you probs know US history is just genocide, colonialism, and oppression Cloyd Rivers @CloydRivers If you ain't excited about Fourth of July, you probably drink unsweet tea, drive a Prius, and burn American flags for fun. No I'm not going to burn flags on the street, but I'm not going to celebrate Independence Day either. Why I'm not celebrating 4th Of July? Because the America I envision celebrates diversity and equality, not just independence. Independence makes no sense when it is given to one group of people while denied for others. That means freedom and equal rights are for everyone, including women, people of color, queer folks, immigrants, people with disabilities. Too often, LGBTQ still have no voice or place at the policy table, just like many other minorities. I find it extremely unfair and unjust. The fact that we're LGBTQ does not make us any less American! This country has a lot of work to do before the "independence" in "Independence Day" is a reality for everyone. Then we can all celebrate. Still, if you celebrate this holiday then I wish you happy 4th of July.
