Fighting for Peace

is like fucking for virginity. So we need to find another way. Cuz if you keep doing the same thing and expect a different result they'll call you crazy. So we have an opportunity now to make massive change when it comes to anti-black racism at least. The challenge of course is that people are still finding anti-black racism a bit icky so they want to do anything but that. My feeling is that if you can address the challenges that come with anti-black and anti-native racism, you can use the same framework for everyone else. Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not beat us up for nothing, Thou shalt not refuse to pave our roads or provide the benefits of modernization like running water and electricity. Thou shalt not steal our property by changing the laws about who can own property. Thou shall ensure that we thrive the same way that you do. Though shall allow us to leave in peace like you do. Thou shall listen, Thou shall act in our favour , Thou shall love us and we shall love you, Thou shall live in peace and we shall all live in peace together. 

But tht's not how it has been is it. I have often felt like I was in a fight for equality, something that I expected people to want to remedy when they realized what was happening. But my heart was broken time and time again. Sometimes it was the very people I was trying to help that were the nastiest. There was no relief. It was too hard. I couldn't fight anymore, but I couldn't give up on the possibility of peace between the races. I just had to find another way to help us get there. I have created Peace Maker Gems as a platform for others who are making peace in the world. If you are one of those people, please let me know and we can figure out how to work together.
