How does the World view America these days?


Recommended Posts

I think it would be helpful to have a dedicated thread on watmm for resources to support the current protests/BLM movement. I know of a few, as well as directories for getting in contact with your local reps and officials, but nothing comprehensive. Maps of ongoing or planned protests would be really helpful. Would someone be willing to compile something like that here? Or link to something elsewhere? I want to help, but I live out in the boonies and have a number of daily work responsibilities that impose a nightly curfew on me, blah blah excuses, tldr it's logistically a fucking challenge for me to travel to the city to protest and still keep my job/home and I have no friends in the city anymore to stay with or meet, but I want to help. donating $$ has been my main strategy but i know there are other ways to do this

My problem is that I've been missing the local protests and events in my city because I don't know how to find out about them beforehand. But the good news is that there are plenty of organizations supporting the cause we can donate to, most notably the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

When you live with livestock, it becomes pretty morbidly amusing when you see humans acting exactly like the animals you take care of.

That's not a very nice way to talk about your family.

      Not sure how I feel about this one. There seems to be a certain satisfaction to this movie but it also makes me uneasy.
