oppressed: Colin Kaepernick Reaches His Million Dollar Pledge Goal with the Help of Fellow Celebrities @balleralert "峒 Colin Kaepernick Reaches His Million Dollar Pledge Goal with the Help of Fellow Celebrities - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the help of his celebrity friends, ColinKaepernick has managed to reach his ‘Million Dollar Pledge’ goal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s decision to start the pledge followed his monumental kneel during the national anthem at a preseason game in late 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kaepernick announced that he would be donating a total of $1 million to a number of charity organizations that focus on societal issues, as an effort to help the oppressed communities of those in need and raise social awareness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To date, the 30-year-old has donated over $900,000 to nearly 31 charities that are dedicated to homelessness, educational development, community-police relations, criminal justice reform, rights for inmates, at-risk families, and even reproductive rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In mid-January, as he entered his final $100,000 donation, Kaepernick started the 10for10 project, in which he teamed up with 10 artists, athletes, and influencers to meet the $1 million mark. Each participant was asked to donate $10,000 to a cause of their choice, and Kaepernick would then match it with another $10,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday, he matched his last $10,000 with Usher’s donation to H.O.M.E., a Georgia-based organization for single mothers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Thank you to everyone who has supported me, matched me and my pledge, and, most importantly, the people,” Kaepernick expressed. “I know that we still have a lot of work to do, however, by getting everyone involved, I truly believe that we can all achieve and move mountains towards our goals for social justice." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Others to participate were Kevin Durant (Silicon Valley De-Bug), Jesse Williams (Advancement Project), Steph Curry (United Playaz), Snoop Dogg (Mothers Against Police Brutality), Serena Williams (Imagine LA), T.I. (Angel by Nature), Jhene Aiko and Chris Brown (School on Wheels), Nick Cannon and Joey Badass (Communities United by Police Reform), and Meek Mill (Youth Service, Inc.).

Colin Kaepernick Reaches His Million Dollar Pledge Goal with the Help of Fellow Celebrities - blogged by: @ashleytearra ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With the help of his celebrity friends, ColinKaepernick has managed to reach his ‘Million Dollar Pledge’ goal. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback’s decision to start the pledge followed his monumental kneel during the national anthem at a preseason game in late 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Kaepernick announced that he would be donating a total of $1 million to a number of charity organizations that focus on societal issues, as an effort to help the oppressed communities of those in need and raise social awareness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To date, the 30-year-old has donated over $900,000 to nearly 31 charities that are dedicated to homelessness, educational development, community-police relations, criminal justice reform, rights for inmates, at-risk families, and even reproductive rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In mid-January, as he entered his final $100,000 donation, Kaepernick started the 10for10 project, in which he teamed up with 10 artists, athletes, and influencers to meet the $1 million mark. Each participant was asked to donate $10,000 to a cause of their choice, and Kaepernick would then match it with another $10,000. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Yesterday, he matched his last $10,000 with Usher’s donation to H.O.M.E., a Georgia-based organization for single mothers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Thank you to everyone who has supported me, matched me and my pledge, and, most importantly, the people,” Kaepernick expressed. “I know that we still have a lot of work to do, however, by getting everyone involved, I truly believe that we can all achieve and move mountains towards our goals for social justice." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Others to participate were Kevin Durant (Silicon Valley De-Bug), Jesse Williams (Advancement Project), Steph Curry (United Playaz), Snoop Dogg (Mothers Against Police Brutality), Serena Williams (Imagine LA), T.I. (Angel by Nature), Jhene Aiko and Chris Brown (School on Wheels), Nick Cannon and Joey Badass (Communities United by Police Reform), and Meek Mill (Youth Service, Inc.).

oppressed: Wagatwe Sara Wanjuki 3 hrs I won't say "Me, too." Partially because most of you know that' already. But mostly because we shouldn't have to "out" ourselves as survivors Because men have *always* seen the gendered violence happening around them (and/or being perpetrated by them)-they just haven't done anything about it. Because it shouldn't matter how many women, femmes, and gender neutral & non- conforming folk speak their truths. Post by @wagatwe. This is not to say that MeToo is a bad thing at all; just that, once again, the burden falls on the oppressed group (people who have been assaulted-harassed) to appeal to the moral sense of their oppressors. Also, to clarify, the emphasis on men in this post is not meant to imply that men cannot be raped or assaulted. Here’s a longer quote I really liked about all this: “Before Weinstein’s alleged sexual misconduct, it was Donald Trump’s. Before Trump, there was Bill Cosby and his half-century of woman accusers. Woody Allen, though determinedly sticking around in Hollywood, has been publicly accused by his own daughter of sexual abuse on a number of occasions. There are just no excuses anymore. We all know that sexual misconduct is a widespread epidemic in our world. So, why are we still asking women and other survivors to rip open their traumas to prove to us there is a problem we already know exists? And when will the problem finally be laid at the feet of those responsible to solve, instead of burdening survivors who have already endured so much?” It is not our responsibility to rip open our wounds and expose our trauma in a solidarity ritual just so you can finally acknowledge there is a problem with men’s violence toward women. We have been screaming into a void for centuries; I’m fairly certain one more round of begging isn’t going to convince you the problem exists if you haven’t already accepted it. For those people who have already used the MeToo hashtag to create some solidarity around their expeirences, or to heal some of their unacknowledged trauma: it is absolutely your right to do that. But just once I would like to see us NOT asking for women, or other oppressed people, to solve a problem that disproportionately affects us. We have already been through enough — we cannot solve your sickness of sexual violence too.” - Matilda Dixon-Smith @matildadixonsmith, “Will We Ever Stop Asking Women And Survivors To Fix Rape Culture?”

We’ve been through so much more than this guy,” he said. “This guy, I’m looking at him like, man, this is a joke, with all – I can’t even say with all due respect – with all disrespect.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Until everyone is free, no one is free,” Jay added. “Period. That’s just a fact. We are all linked some kind of way. So if you oppress a certain people, everyone is in danger, karmically and in real life. If I’m being oppressed and you have this big, nice mansion, I’m coming inside there. That’s going to happen, that’s just how life is.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although the country is struggling with racial injustices and increased hate crimes in the wake of the Donald Trump era, Hov believes it is something that we, as a nation and culture, can overcome. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I don’t think that this is happening if we weren’t prepared to handle it,” he said. “I’m just looking forward to what’s next after that, because usually when things are darkest, then light is on its way. I’m not fearful.”

oppressed: An anthropologist proposed a game to the kids in an African tribe. He put a basket full of fruit near a tree and told them that whoever got there first won the sweet fruits. When he gave them the signal to run they all took each other's hands and ran together, then sat in a circle enjoying their treats. When he asked them why they chose to run as a group when they could have had more fruit individually, one child spoke up and said: "UBUNTU, how can one of us be happy if all the other ones are sad?" “One of the sayings in our country is Ubuntu – the essence of being human. Ubuntu speaks particularly about the fact that you can’t exist as a human being in isolation. It speaks about our interconnectedness. You can’t be human all by yourself, and when you have this quality – Ubuntu- you are known for your generosity. We think of ourselves far too frequently as just individuals, separated from one another, whereas you are connected and what you do affects the whole World. ┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈┈ A person with ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed.” - DesmondTutu theblaquelioness

oppressed: PRAY FOR THE OPPRESSED AND SUFFERING Iran denied Christian prisoner vital Medical Care. Iranian authorities released Maryam Naghash Zargaran, an Iranian Christian, from prison after she served a four year sentence for "security violations." Zargaran, 39, was often denied vital medical attention needed for a heart condition called atrial septal defect (ASD). Additionally, she has always been treated with prejudice. She had zero rights. Hunger strikes, protests, complaints - everything was ignored by Iranian authorities. By the way, she was arrested in 2013 after working with Pastor Saeed Abedini, an Iranian-American, at an orphanage. Arrested for being Christian. And that’s not even surprising; we all know how Christians are treated in Iran. Its government considers us as enemies, humiliates and mocks Christians all over the country. It’s hate towards our religion that represents the foundation of the modern Iran (after 1979 Islamic revolution). What’s more, the revival of the Islam in the Middle East affected not only Iran but most of the countries in this region. Christians face incredibly cruel and inhuman attitude towards themselves. For example, only in Iran more than 90 Christian leaders are locked in jails today. I suppose it's clear that torture and violence became an inalienable part of their lives there. We cannot and must not tolerate such a horrific discrimination. America has to become number one Christian defender once again. “Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked (Psalm 82:4)” Bible sonofgod424 God Love Redeemed Saved Christian Christianity Pray Chosen jesus lord truth praying christ jesuschrist bible word godly angels cross faith inspiration jesussaves worship yahweh holyspirit praise spiritualwarfare

oppressed: Protesters don't block traffic to gain your support. They do it so you can see what if feels like to be stuck in a powerless situation How do you respond to this situation? Are you calm and peaceful? Do you want to spend years organizing political talks about it? Nope, you want to run those protesters over, kill them, kill them all. If you want to kill protesters who have you stuck in traffic, imagine what you would want to do to a system that patrols, harasses and kills you. The sooner you learn perspective the sooner you won't have to be stuck in traffic. Posted this earlier and was bombarded with "what about emergency vehicles what if I'm going to the hospital" etc etc. First of all, understand that these protestors are human, they are not trying to kill anyone, and they will let emergency vehicles pass by. You're not going to protest against an injust system and then choose not to let an ambulance through. There is only ONE instance of this happening after countless protests across the US. Next rebuttal "these people should get jobs; not everyone can just protest all day" these people do have jobs (thanks to our capitalist system you must have a job-jobs to survive bc things like healthcare aren't provided universally 🙃🙃) but are using their little free time to fight for equality and fight against a system that actively oppresses them. If you can spend your free time doing activities like watching TV, shopping, cooking, etc then congratulations but some people are tired of being victims of an oppressive system and want to fight back. "You're keeping people from getting to their jobs" if this is your response please reread the post because clearly you missed the point. TLDR: If you see a group of oppressed people protesting and your first thought is that they're wrong, maybe stop and consider that that have a reason to protest! Think about other people and imagine being ignored and silenced your entire life to the point where the ONLY way you can be heard is by shutting a highway down. 😞 Y'all if you follow me then I know you understand sexism so please apply these same concepts to racism and classism. It's super disappointing to see a bunch of privileged-ignorant-selfish responses when I post about things deeper than "puppies not patriarchy." stop! Think! Try to understand and empathize! Don't automatically get defensive!!!!

oppressed: I wasn't called racist until I start expressing how much I appreciate black girls Deep down this resonates with all women of African diaspora reading this. Maybe all women, as all women are oppressed to varying degrees. This resonates because love is the deepest & highest vibration within our lives. So why do African women give the most but receive the least globally? Many reasons, racism & sexism being two of them. African women are so brilliant & so beautiful that the insecure men of the world feel the need to control them. I have spent the time in Ethiopia speaking to women whenever I could. I asked them all the same Question. "What's it like to be an African woman in this world?" All said that it's hard because if they "look good" they are judged on their "looks" not on the content of their character. If they don't "look good" then there are less opportunities for them economically. Either way it's a struggle because men own basically everything. Military Banks Schools Food Water Media Music Law Land Business Politics Medicine Literature and even the "Beauty" industry... Men use every opportunity to oppress, profit from & downpress the woman. African women face racism from non Africans, Classism, colourism & Sexism from all. Women are generally more emotionally intelligent than men, they use the right brain & the left brain. Many men are conditioned & rewarded when they just use the left brain & the reptilian (order following, fight or flight brain So from birth women have been told something derogatory by men & by other women controlled by men. You have been told your life's purpose is to fit in & get a man for marriage. Men have been told your life's purpose is to excel & find a woman who supports your goals. I am writing this with gender privilege so more people will read this than if I was a woman. How I look is a bonus, but not my perceived soul contribution to the human experience. So I will use this platform to speak up for women. Working with women who are victims of oppression & sexual violence has shown me that women are generally better human beings than men. So love them properly, leave them room to grow and then support them. Respect chakabars
