#TakeItDown

[TRIGGER WARNING: CHARLESTON SHOOTING, ANTI-BLACK RACISM, MALE VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN]

In the wake of the Charleston white terrorist attack, people are calling for South Carolina and every other state that still displays the Confederate flag to #TakeItDown.

It could not be more clear that the white terrorist attack on the black church in Charleston was a racist, anti-black hate crime. The guy admitted that he wanted to kill black people in order to defend white people, and specifically white women from rape which infuriates me because FUCK YOU, YOU TERRORIST MONSTER. IT'S MEN LIKE YOU THAT I FEAR, MEN LIKE YOU THAT RAPE AND ABUSE AND KIDNAP AND MURDER US IN THE WORST WAYS IMAGINABLE, YOU DO NOT SPEAK FOR ME AND I FUCKING HATE YOU.

So yeah. The Confederate flag has been tolerated for too long. If you want a Southern pride flag, make a new one that doesn't have roots in the defense of chattel slavery, lynchings, Jim Crow, and all every other anti-black, hateful shame of our country. Take down all Confederate flags and burn them. Then piss on them. Then burn them again.
