Women Are Leading a Sudan Uprising

I never get tired of pointing out that, while those of us raised in the U.S. were taught that we were exceptional and countries that weren't majority white or dominated by white people were behind us in every aspect of justice and human rights, that shit was a lie.

Also, if you want some positivity in your life today, go to Twitter and search "Sudan uprising."

Especially if you need a reminder that black women are incredible.

And the latest news is that the uprising has been successful. President al-Bashir has stepped down as demanded, according to government sources.

Mainstream media in the U.S., of course, has ignored this. Possibly because our own rulers (the rich) don't want us to see how successful these kinds of mass protests can be.

Meanwhile, people here are calling for an Occupy D.C. movement. Can we get tens of thousands of people to camp out outside of the White House and demand the end of Trump's reign? It won't be easy, but it's incredibly necessary.
