“My America is A COUNTRY FOUNDED ON GENOCIDE AND SLAVERY THAT HAS REALLY PULLED ITSELF UP BY ITS’ BOOTSTRAPS AND CREATED A CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM THAT REALLY AT THIS POINT IS TRYING ITS’ HARDEST TO OPPRESS CERTAIN POPULATIONS (SORRY INJUSTICE SYSTEM) AND FOR A PATRIARCHAL, HOMOPHOBIC, INCREDIBLY RACIST, IMPERIALIST AND DEFINITELY NOT DECOLONIZED SOCIETY I FEEL LIKE WE GOT THIS UTOPIA GOING ON.” – Lindsay

Lindsay – January 12th, 2014

I think this quote speaks for itself. Lindsay grew up in several different places, including Japan and southern California. She has protested with numerous groups. We spoke about the differences in culture between northern and southern California. I assumed that the Bay Area had more political and social movements, but Lindsay informed me of large influences made by the Black Panther Party and the Yellow Power Movement.
