Letter from the South: On mental illness and movement unity

first_imgThis is a statement about what it is like to be mentally ill in a time when all of your “progressive” Democrat friends keep writing the “fascist president” off as being mentally ill, instead of confronting his white supremacist, right-wing extremist views and actions.I was 22 years old when I was finally diagnosed with bipolar disorder. I say “finally” because I had known for years. But due to living in a capitalist society, I often have to prioritize rent and electricity over my own health — both mental and physical. I could not afford to see a professional for long enough to be diagnosed.The diagnosis came after ten years of battling depression as a result of trauma I faced as an adolescent. These days, my depression is not as bad. I take medication for it, though I still have my days.Being an organizer, there are many intersections and oppressions I must and do recognize, and one of those intersections is mental illness. I am a mentally ill, queer, transgender, working-class communist and Southerner. I am not ambiguous about these intersections because I cannot afford to be.All of these things that I am are facing new threats of violence every day with the rising tide of hatred unleashed by the election of Donald Trump and his reactionary administration.At this point, we are out in the streets disrupting, organizing and struggling together almost every day, as we should be. Communities are striving for the necessity of unity. Each day, solidarity across all oppressed communities grows more and more.And there is nothing quite as dangerous as the power of the united people.But in our communities there seems to be a unity-breaking trend in activist discussion. (I say “our” as I see this in all of my own communities.)Instead of continuing to confront the right-wing extremism and white-supremacist views of the Trump administration, people are quick to write Trump and his cronies off as being “crazy” or “having some kind of mental illness.”People seem to not want to say Donald Trump is, for instance, a stone-cold racist bigot. Rather they find solace in saying: “He is mentally ill! He is crazy!” And then come the multiple diagnoses: “He’s schizophrenic!” “He has narcissistic personality disorder!” and “He is bipolar!”That last one hits me personally, especially when comrades and friends who keep saying it also know I also have bipolar disorder.When Trump’s reactionary views are reduced down to a mental illness, it perpetuates a stigma against me and every other neurodivergent person that our mental illnesses are synonymous with awful, reactionary views and behavior. And they are not.Neurodivergent people lead!Neurodivergent people are in the leadership of the movement. But due to our intersecting identities, we have often had to put our own illnesses on the backburner.If Donald Trump or any of his administration do have a mental illness, that is not the reason they are Nazi sympathizers or hate LGBTQ people. That does not absolve them of their reactionary views. It is dangerous to assume that mental illness is the reason why they are the way they are.This is like saying white-supremacist Dylan Roof was “crazy” because he murdered nine Black people in cold blood while they worshipped in their Charleston church. People who use this horrid rhetoric are not acknowledging and confronting their own place in white supremacy either. This is a practice all white people, myself included, must self-criticize and work on changing if we truly wish to dismantle and destroy white supremacy once and for all.Accusing Trump and his ilk of being mentally ill comes off as either trying to absolve them of their bigoted actions or as demonizing mentally ill people. Even neurotypical people who are calling for an end to ableism perpetuate ableism themselves when they deem Trump “crazy.”If you cut mentally ill people out of our movements, then that is counterrevolutionary, and there is no real progress made.In order for any revolution to occur, ableism must truly be crushed, and stigmas must be done away with. This means those who call themselves revolutionaries or communists, or dedicate themselves to a path of freedom and liberation, must also dedicate themselves to crushing all forms of oppression.Smash ableism! Call Trump what he is — a far-right-wing extremist, a racist and white supremacist, an Islamophobe and anti-Semite, a woman-hater, a vile bigot against LGBTQ people, a fascistic friend of the KKK, an authoritarian xenophobe.But do not call Donald Trump mentally ill.Devin Cole, a trans organizer and organizer of the Pensacola Airport protest, is president of Pensacola STRIVE (Social Trans Initiative) and director of operations for the Florida Transgender Alliance.

Goodbye winter, hello sweet springtime

first_img Book Nook to reopen Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Email the author I would be sitting on the porch steps eating a baked sweet tater or biscuit that had been held over in Eunice’s oven or building sand castles in the yard.  But somehow Amos’ words made their way into my head and my heart.I had never heard the voice of the turtle that the Bible talked about. I didn’t even know that a turtle had a voice.Turtles were ugly and mean and, if they latched on to your finger with their sharp teeth, they wouldn’t let go until it thundered. A turtle would sneak up on a stringer of fish in the water and eat every one of them if you didn’t beat it away with the fishing pole. Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day For lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth and the time of the singing of birds is come and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land.Just when I first heard those verses read or recited to me from the Song of Solomon, I don’t know. Like so many other things from my childhood, it seems as though I’ve known them always.More than likely, it was from Amos, who lived on my granddaddy’s place, that I heard those verses. He was always reading or reciting the Bible, propped against the porch wall in a cane-bottom chair, with the Bible on his lap. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Mama would have torn me up if she’d been there but my granny let me wear myself out. And, when I got through, my big ol’ shellcracker still didn’t have a tail.I couldn’t imagine what kind of voice that mean ol’ fishtail-eating turtle had.Every spring morning was filled with the voices of God’s little critters – birds, squirrels and maybe even a turtle.I thought a turtle’s voice would sound like a bullfrog’s — deep and croaky. I wondered if it could make sounds with its head tucked in its shell or if it had to stick its head out to make a sound. I tried my best to find out. I’d shake a turtle and beat on its back with a stick, but it still wouldn’t make a sound.Each year, when the rain was over and the flowers began to appear on the earth and the birds began to sing, I would listen for the voice of the turtle.Finally, came the knowledge that the voice of the turtle was actually the voice of a turtledove –not a hard-shelled, sharp-toothed ugly thing that ate fish off the stringer.I was disappointed that the voice of the turtle had eluded me.But, when Amos read to me from the Bible, he would say, “Listen with your heart, chil’ not with your ears.”So, now, when the winter is past and the rain is over and gone and the flowers appear on the earth and the time of the singing of the birds is come, I listen with my heart and I hear the voice of the turtle and it is such an amazingly beautiful thing. Goodbye winter, hello sweet springtime I was fishing with my granny one day and we’d caught a nice stringer of fish. I’d caught the biggest one – a big ol’ shellcracker– and I couldn’t wait to get home and show it off.We were about down to our last wigglers when my granny started hollering and slapping the water with her pole. “Get! Get!”She reached pulled up the string of fish and an ol’ turtle had eaten my shellcracker’s tail right off.I fell down and pitched a fit right there on the muddy edge of the pond. The cows quit grazing to watch me kick my heels up in the air.

Guild and online agent easyProperty merge in £60m deal

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » Guild and online agent easyProperty merge in £60m deal previous nextAssociations & BodiesGuild and online agent easyProperty merge in £60m dealGuild and Fine & Country parent company join forces to form hybrid organisation.Nigel Lewis8th June 201702,384 Views The Guild of Property Professionals has struck a £60m deal with online agent to enable its 5,000 members to use the website’s online sales and lettings packages.The deal, which will complete later this month, also merges the Guild’s parent company GPEA, which also owns 300-branch network Fine & Country, with easyProperty, to be called e-Prop Services.The new company will be headed up by GPEA executive director Jon Cooke(pictured, below) who will also be CEO of e-Prop, while easyProperty founder Rob Elice (pictured, left) will remain with easyProperty.He says the Guild and Fine & Country members will be able to target a wider range of sellers and in particular those at the lower end of the market, who are largely the price-sensitive bread and butter of the online agents.“This deal allows our independent agents to offer more consumer choice with sales and lettings products catering to both the do-it-yourself and the do-it-for-me vendor and landlord preferences.“We recognise the market requires and demands both online products and traditional methods. What I’d like to stress is this newly merged business is the convergence of traditional estate agency and online.“Effectively we are providing independent agents the ability to compete with products targeting each consumer demographic. At the same time, licencees will have full autonomy and flexibility to not only benefit from upfront revenue streams but take advantage of potential lead-generation into their core brand. In the coming months we will be launching the new easyProperty website as well as a new, national brand marketing campaign.”Monthly licenceMembers will be able to access the service through a monthly licence, he said.The move is an unusual one because online agents such as easyProperty have, until now, pitched themselves as an alternative to traditional agents.But Cooke says he now thinks online and traditional methods can work together, saying the merged business was “the convergence of traditional estate agency and online”.Malcolm Lindley, co-founder of the Guild of Property Professionals and now chairman of e-Prop, says: “Certainly the landscape of our industry is changing.  Our clients require more choice, more flexibility, different ways of accessing our services, transparency and value.“The strength of the ‘easy’ brand will provide the platform for us to defensively and aggressively continue to protect our independent agents’ market share.”EasypropertyThe EasyProperty/Guild deal is also a reflection of the increasingly frantic effort among many independent and corporate agents to offer both traditional and online-only models to their customers.As Cooke points out, it’s also in effect a similar commercial play to Countrywide’s recent digital roll-out, and Savills heavy investment in YOPA, although the Guild digital merger deal clearly has pretension to take on Purplebricks and set up a network of local experts.EasyProperty is one of the best-funded online agents after Purplebrikcs and in April 2017 its full-year financials revealed that, as well as raising just under £40m from investors, it lost £11.4 million in 2016, more than its losses in 2015 of £6.8 million.Revenue during 2016 was £874,000, which lead one proptech commentator to wonder how so much money could be spent “with such little market traction”, said Mike Delprete.The deal is being backed by fund manager Toscafund Asset Management, which has offices in London, Manchester and the US.

Oxford to expand access programmes after data release

first_imgOxford University is to expand its UNIQ programme following newly released data showing continuing problems with access.The scheme, which provides spring and summer schools for students from under-represented backgrounds, will increase its intake by 50% from next year.Students who apply through the scheme have a 14% greater likelihood of gaining a place at Oxford.The announcement of the scheme’s expansion comes after a release of access data by the University showed that 17 of the top 20 schools for Oxford admissions are fee-paying.VC Louise Richardson praised the move.Vice chancellor, Louise Richardson, said: “UNIQ is a wonderful example of what can happen when bright students are given the chance to realise their potential, increase their confidence and raise their aspirations. These 500 extra places will enable even more young women and men to see for themselves that an Oxford education is within their reach.”The expansion will be funded by £75 million donations from the University and Sir Michael Moritz and Harriet Heyman. Heyman and Moritz already fund a scholarship which the University announced would be expanded to every new student from a UK household earning £16,000 or less.Sir Michael Moritz said: “We’re delighted that our £75 milllion gift, coupled with matched funding of £75 million from the University, has been able to generate additional funds to support an expanded UNIQ scheme.“UNIQ has an outstanding track record in lifting the success rate of applicants to Oxford from disadvantaged backgrounds, exactly the groups that out gift is aimed at.“We’re equally pleased to see the Moritz-Heyman scholarships expand to build on the success of the last six years and become available to all UK students from households with an annual income of £16,000 or less.”5,500 students have used the programme since it launched in 2010. 1250 of those have gained places on Oxford courses.last_img read more
