More than 4,000 Africans have died from Ebola and the crisis is continuing to escalate, grow and spiral out of control, displacing tens of thousands, killing entire families and instilling fear into the day to day lives of millions of people in West Africa and all white people care about is their fucking chocolate. Fuck Bill Tomson (@BillTomson4 on Twitter), white liberals and Politico (@Politico on Twitter) for this disgusting, racist trash.

In 1627, a woman was accused of witchcraft by another woman, this due to romance problems and jealousy. Diana was not a sorceress, she was just able to move things with her mind; yes, like that time when she and the disputed man announced their marriage while, in anger, she overthrew a candelabrum via telekinesis… In front of a representative from Catholic Inquisition. Not time or space could separate the two lovers, not even the Devil.

Yesterday I attended a protest against Columbus Day in Los Angeles. The rally started on Olvera Street across the way from Union Station then  to the cathedral in downtown L.A. We stood in front of the church for a half an hour, preaching of what obscenities the church allowed against the indigenous people of the Americas. The church was also built on sacred land.

While we were there, there was a group of white people staring at us as we protested on the other side of the street. A little whitey mocked us while the ignorant white girls sneered. An old white man we nicknamed Skip shouted “Boo!” while our words were said through the microphone of the injustice the church brought upon 100 million people.

Later, we marched with our signs held high to the Columbus statue in Grand Park of downtown L.A. It was set there in the park in 1976 (first picture of the set), the plaque stating the Columbus discovered America and is a “legend among immortals”. We returned to Olvera street where there were dancers celebrating the indigenous people that were once here.

It was hot but it was worth marching for this—to change Columbus Day  just as Seattle has done. There should be no holiday marking a terrorist and murderer. 

Happy Indigenous Day!
