Anyone who believes 300 years of oppression can be undone in a 50 year span does not have a basic comprehension of how this subjugation can become internalized and normalized, thus continuing to be a serious social issue

Basically.

This can never be reblogged too many times.

Bourgeoisie Pseudo-Leftist Mentality: I am financially secure. I am going to sit in my room and read theory and wait for things to get so bad for poor people that they have no other option than to revolt. Then I will put on my mask and break things.

Strippers are people, too.

Every now and then, I google legal ways to make quick money fast

Every option comes up except for possibly the most lucrative option.

Donate sperm, plasma, your eggs for Pete’s sake- but not stripping.

Hey…
Strippers are people, too.

We are forced to live in a system that steals from us daily, Kill snitch culture.

Important things to keep in mind!
- never take from ‘mom and pop’ type store. Its likely you’ll actually harm them, whereas taking from a walmart wont effect much.
- never take items that a worker is assigned to monitor (usually super expensive items), theyll be in trouble for it. and its usually a minimum wage worker and usually they lose hours or pay, or they even get fired.
- similar to the above, never take things that are usually locked up for the above reason
- if its a store you know gives their near-expiration products to workers/charity, try to avoid taking the near expiration products.
- if youre taking clothing, avoid leaving hangers. it sounds weird, but itll make it seem like it was more likely an error in the computer than a theft, since the empty hanger sitting there will seem suspicious. 
- also for clothing, try not to take more than one item at once, as it will look suspicious if theres 10 medium shirts missing, and it won’t be written off as just a stocking error. and it will lead to workers being penalized
- basically just always consider ‘will this harm a worker’ and if the answer is yes then dont do it
like i was homeless for a while when i was younger and i tried to follow those guidelines to avoid doing harm to people who were probably not much better off than me while trying to get food for myself.

And remember, the more thefts the greater the security. So if you HAVE funds, use them to support local businesses instead of removing product from big buisnesses.

i love how this is totally devoid of any sort of racial analysis whatsoever as if security measures and treatment within stores is equal across the board when you steal you’re not only affecting workers, you’re making it shittier for the people of color who are already suspected of stealing from stores and are trying to shop there BECAUSE WE DON’T HAVE THE OPTION OF SHOPLIFTING TO FUCK OVER THE CAPITALIST SYSTEM AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT. THE PRISONS ARE ALREADY FILLED TO THE BRIM WITH BLACK BODIES SERVING HEAVY AMOUNTS OF TIME FOR NON-VIOLENT CRIMES AS IT IS. you make shopping for everyday survival a fucking pain in the ass because we’re the ones getting followed around and suspected as criminals BEFORE anybody else, let alone radicals who are doing it as “look at me i’m fucking over the system” sort of epically privileged ass backwards praxis you wanna shoplift to make a statement, that’s your businessbut don’t pretend your Crimethinc remedial anarchist praxis is sage advice for people who don’t have white privilege on their side

straight up white people I see you stealing and I’m getting followed in the store I’m snitching on y’all just to prove a point.the biggest shoplifters (criminals in general actually) is y’all so…
