AUDRE LORDE 1934-1992
Author, poet, feminist, and self-described warrior. She was born to Caribbean immigrants in Harlem and began writing poetry at a young age. Her childhood, years of sexual awakening, and experiences of the gay scene in 1950s Greenwich Village are detailed in her beautiful 1982 novel Zami: A New Spelling of My Name, which she called a “biomythography.” In addition to inventing genres, she also contributed to modern feminist thought by asserting that her dual identities as black and lesbian were intertwined, and by criticizing feminists in the 60s who ignored the racial and sexual divides that exist among women. She was the New York State Poet Laureate from 1991 until her death the following year, after a long battle with cancer.

Fuck. Respectability. Politics.

i’m not sure what exactly is or isn’t legal there but if it is legal everyone needs to start recording their calls and upload the audio clips so everyone knows what you’re dealing with

PLEASE PLEASE check your state law to determine if recording your phone calls or the phone calls of others is LEGAL. this regulation varies by state, sometimes even down to who’s calling/doing the recording. make sure to keep yourselves safe & in the clear!

  • All-party consent states


Twelve states currently require that all parties consent to the recording: California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii (in general a one-party state, but requires two-party consent if the recording device is installed in a private place), Illinois (debated, see next section), Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana (requires notification only), Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Washington. (However section 3 of the Washington law states that permission is given if any of the parties announces that they will be recording the call in a reasonable manner if the recording contains that announcement.)

  • One-party consent states


All other states (and the District of Columbia) not listed above require only that one party consent.

Illinois courts have ruled that “eavesdropping” only applies to conversations that the party otherwise would not have been able to hear, thereby effectively making it a one-party consent state. However, there still appears to be confusion and debate over the law.

Michigan courts have ruled that eavesdropping only applies to: “a third party not otherwise involved in the conversation being eavesdropped on”. This is because the law uses the wording, “the private discourse of others”, rather than the wording, “the private discourse of others or with others”. Michigan law is often misinterpreted as requiring the consent of all parties to a conversation.

The California Supreme Court ruled in 2006 that if a caller in a one-party state records a conversation with someone in California, that one-party state caller is subject to the stricter of the laws and must have consent from all callers (cf. Kearney v. Salomon Smith Barney Inc., 39 Cal. 4th 95).

The legal information is legit. please signal boost.

My thoughts exactly.

and you do not treat terror with peace. peace comes after you’ve handled the terror.

Same shit.
Who do they protect and who they serve? Clearly not us when they’re killing people constantly WITH the badges on.
FFS.
