#TheresePatriciaOkoumou This chick is a piece of work. Check out this lawsuit between her and a NY towing company:…
"The answer alleges that on January 29, when her car was towed, Ms. Okoumou
berated the tow truck operator with “racial and inappropriate remarks.” Ms. Okoumou allegedly
chased the tow truck as the operator drove away with her car, yelled at him, ran up to the tow
"attempted to remove the keys from the truck’s ignition, and jumped on the back of the tow
truck, despite the operator’s warning that if she did not desist, he would call the police. Ms.
Okoumou allegedly got into her vehicle while it was on the truck..."

I’m still trying to wrap my head around a white-led “justice org” distancing themselves from a Black members action when she literally REPPED THEM DURING THR ACTION. I’m fucking livid.
This woman that you conviniently abandoned until it was clear that wasn’t a good PR look held up a shirt WITH YOUR NAME on it. Ppl are creating art of her WITH YOUR ORGS name on it.
No had even heard of this org before #TheresePatriciaOkoumou made you famous. I’m tired. And I’m hearing bad things about your org aside from this display of white centering bullshit.

You haven’t listened to anything. You STILL haven’t been honest about the fact that clearly your leadership didn’t agree with the 2nd action until you saw ppl rallying behind #TheresePatriciaOkoumou
You STILL haven’t been clear about the ways that your actions further endangered #ThereseParriciaOkoumou as you released your disavowing statement while she was still in direct confrontation with police.
You STILL haven’t answered why you didn’t take point and ensure the messaging you released let people know #TheresePatriciaOkoumou wasn’t alone on that statue. That you were with her no matter what.

The Dora Milaje have always been real.
This list also represents how badly white people have failed at ending cycles of violence they’ve committed.

#TheresePatriciaOkoumou is a Black Woman Immigrant.

She stood up when others wouldn’t. That’s not something to be excited about. It’s an embarrassment to everyone else.
It white people who created this mess.
It should be white people doing the heavy lifting, in non-performative ways, to clean it up.

And yet the list for white people who’ve put themselves on the line is much much shorter.

We could end lack of equity.

If we wanted to.
