Hey y'all! 🤩

I'm new to mastodon! So I'm doing an

I'm Elyssa/Leelums and I'm a black artist that illustrates, dabbles in animation, video game design, and a lot of things! I love working with local artists to help them create their vision. I'm also currently in university!

I really want to help create a supportive empathetic community together here 😻

Yall i finally got my wisdom teeth surgery done a couple days ago! Ive been resting & recovering

i wonder how many times Black ppl on here are going to have to repeat that non black poc can and often are anti black before ppl will listen and believe us?

The way ppl be willfully obtuse with the fact that latino is an ethnicity, not a race.... i wish it would stop surprising me

excited to see how nonblack people will continue to support black people (especially financially) now that black history month is over 👀 👀 👀 👀 👀

The way i woke up at 6 am and couldnt go back to sleep.... so violent

I’ve been toying with the idea of making recorded media, like a podcast or live talks or sum 🤔

genocide, Haiti, DR, usa 

“1937: Between 17,000 to 35,000 Haitians living in the #DominicanRepublic are massacred by the Dominican armed forces on the orders of President Rafael Trujillo. U.S. Secretary of State Cordell Hull subsequently declared ‘President Trujillo is one of the greatest men in Central America and in most of South America.’”

This is during #FDR's ~New Deal~ government that “socialist” politicians like Bernie Sanders & the Green Party take so much inspiration from.

On another note, there are some blue and gold macaws that live in the area! I always think about them and wish for them to be well bc I don’t want them to be harmed by poachers. 6 of them congregate at the nearby park in like parrot community meetings but they actually live in pairs, and I just saw a pair of them fly over my home while cawing to each other! 🥺

Manufacturing futures begins in the imagination. Removing the limits the colonial project and capitalist project have placed on imagination through indoctrination is the first step and walking with the knowledge that your imagination can shape reality through regularly acting on it is the second. Removing the lens of antiblackness and committing to that as a daily practice is absolutely necessary, otherwise we will never get free. Never.

Imagining a world where imperialism and leaving ppl behind to bare the brunt of cruelties + lack of resources just so a class of people can be comfortable and relish in excess is a dealbreaker and commonly viewed as morally reprehensible

Show thread

Imagining a world where instead of bullying ppl to vote for an old lying ass imperialist white supremacist to replace another old lying ass imperialist white supremacist and presenting those as the only two options, energy was directed into pushing people to organize in our local communities and set up ways to more effectively deliver mutual aid to each other and encouraging each other that theres more we can do than just vote. There are other tangible actions. The world is not a binary

It's time to stop burying the ongoing uprising in #Haiti against the slavers' latest occupation.
