July 4, Hawaii, Independence 

Imagine a Native American community who had a Disneyland-like resort built over their villages and ancestor's graves, the people made to do bastardizations of their sacred dances, wear mock 'sexy feather headresses' and entertain the rich tourists for starvation wages, 12 hours a day 7 days a week, living sardine-packed 20-to-a-house. And then be arrested for speaking their own language. It'd be an outrage, right? But that is just everyday life, in US-colonized Hawaii

July 4, Hawaii, Independence 

I'm Native Hawaiian and been homeless in my own land repeatedly. Literally didn't know where my family and I would be living at the end of the month.

While American and other foreign billionaires own countless mansions and unoccupied multi-million dollar condos here.

Fuck colonialism and fuck capitalism.

Neofeud is a game about my experiences growing up in Hawaii's ghetto, being a social worker & STEM teacher for poor, homeless, refugees, mostly non-white kids in slums of Hawaii the tour buses avoid, while living out of a van. 100% of sales go to putting a roof over my kids' head.

The White House's mission is exterminating its population and destroying its economy?

The US has Plutocracy with Coloring Book Characteristics, filling out a red or blue bubble every 4 years at (Dead White Warcriminal) elementary school in your district. (Now you mail your placebo through your post office, that's dying faster than US covid nurses & economy.)

Dying US Empire, Covid, Orientalism 

Dying Western Capitalist Empires Anonymous - one foot in the grave, losing on covid, real economy in freefall, Cali in ashes, festering w/ colonialism & racism, staring at Failed State civil war - finally curb anti-Asianism enough to admit they've got a (million) problem(s).

Trump has been replaced by the architect of the system that locked up millions of black people, killed millions in for-profit war, destroyed the middle class for billionaires, and that produced Trump, congrats!

Hawaii, Homelessness, Capitalism 

As a Native Hawaiian who was homeless while working full-time as a social worker & STEM teacher for poor, homeless, refugees (cause 1-bedrooms average $1700+), can confirm Hawaii is full of inequality, and its wealthy rulers, like some of its radio jockeys, do not care about us.

Thanksgiving, Decolonization, Hawaii 

Aloha means decolonization of your illegitimate slavery, genocide and exploitation-backed empire, that sends body bags to indigenous communities, and continues to arrest, lock-up, and impoverish Native Hawaiians like me, even as homeless of Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders explodes in pandemic.
It's not dancing fake versions of our hula, giving rich tourists lei on airplanes with fake Hawaiian ladys, and serving your poi for $7.50 / hr while living in ghetto.

Bolivia, Fuck Imperialism & Elon Musk 

@silverspookgames Tesla is a longterm "pump-and-dump" and the initial investors are finally getting to the "dump" part.

Bolivia, Fuck Imperialism & Elon Musk 

@orangeTsar Straight up!

Bolivia, Fuck Imperialism & Elon Musk 

@silverspookgames The West only gets new car companies after a major war, I don't understand why Tesla could break that rule

@silverspookgames Eh, Brah! Time fo huli da system! E HOLOHOLO KAKOU!

US Empire Self-Destruction Pol 

@silverspookgames Well mostly they wanted to kill off the non-white people but they're also lazy and believe that bad things can't happen to them, so they didn't expect COVID to spread into "their people"

US Empire Self-Destruction Pol 

@silverspookgames As long as it's disproportionately the slaves, they don't care.

And yes, it's 100% the White House's mission to exterminate enough of the population in an attempt to make sure they don't have to do any wealth redistribution to appease the slaves.

Fuga is very cool, though. I don't blame her for walking off. No reason anyone should have to sit still for that kind of bullshit.
