Red Pill Activation



Every so often I throw a red pill into a TL to see the bots and the operatives at work.  In all of the discussion about collusion with Russia during the 2016 elections, Bernie has been remarkably quiet.  He will say something when pressed but overall he isn’t concerned about the matter.  Why? Collusion with a nation against whom we have sanctions is a very treasonous matter.
I am not saying Bernie directly colluded with Russia for the failure of our democracy in the USA.  I am saying there were some running his campaign who had ties to Russia.  I do know if I tweet a few keys words to legitimate people regarding Bernie, I get foreign bots in my DMs. 
I am not saying all Bernie Bros are bots.  I’ve met them offline.  They sincerely believe a White man is the solution for all of the ills of the USA.  Maybe they are correct, only the creators can correct what they have done.  However, I continue to see White men make people of color, especially Black people, and women afterthoughts.   What type of fool would I be if I trusted my welfare to a White man? 
My discussion with a White male about Bernie making HBCUs an afterthought, ended with the White male saying “so i really don't care if you think….”  I knew this White male, much as Bernie and the other bros, didn’t care what I think.  In his words one doesn’t need to be Black or female to support women or people of color.  He is correct, however; being male and White seems to hindering hearing women and PoC when they speak.  I could be wrong but as a Black lesbian it is my interpretation of decades of conversations with White males and males.
Post-election some are slowly waking to understand why Black women knew from Jump Street what time it was.  Black men still locked into the same “I am man and I must lead the women and children” dreamland as is Bernie are still sleeping.  The Women’s’ March   was vital for it said, “Naw Bro being male isn’t nor has it been for centuries the only qualification for leading.” Yet, our media and elected officials continue to push to young people of color and to White women the White male savior narrative.  Meanwhile, Black women singing “Hell 2 Da NawNawNaw”.

Why We Need More People of Color Writing Syfy

This weekend due to an enduring cough, I decided to binge watch Wayward Pines.  In truth, I actually need to binge on Game of Thrones but I shall save that binge($$$$$) for my birthday.  Let me not chase that rabbit for now.  Wayward Pines is one example of how having majority White writers of science fiction/fantasy continue to ignore the actual composition of Earth's population, the societal norms of those populations, and the ability of those populations to thrive outside of White intervention.

I am a lover of Fantasy and Science Fiction since childhood. What I have noted over the years is a common theme, humans(White people) have changed the environment to the point of either some horrifying human mutation or some climate apocalypse.  I often wonder why in these writings we don't see an evolution that leads to world peace.  Start Trek is one of the few that shows the possibility for humans after we  learn to work for peace not war.  However,  even Star Trek fails to accur…
