This Week in White Supremacy #136: ‘Brace yourselves for the new levels of open misogynoir’

Bree Newsome Bass on Twitter: “Brace yourselves for the new levels of open misogynoir that will be unlocked if/when Biden names a BW as VP. Folks who’ve been doing their best to pretend they were ok with a Black family in the WH ‘08-‘16 won’t be able to hold it together. We’re already seeing it now.” / Twitter https://bit.ly/3fzHCc0

She has health issues. She got picked up this afternoon at the Glen Ellen post office, and taken into ICE custody in SF. She is a mother and grandmother, with grieving family desperately trying to save her. The family is told they plan to deport her to Tijuana tomorrow morning. We have activated various legal networks on her behalf, but more importantly, people should know that they should not assume that it is safe in Sonoma County for undocumented or perceived to be undocumented residents.” After Kelly sent her initial email, she reported: “Thank god for the rapid response network. She is now being released.”
