I compiled a google drive of anti-racism/whiteness readings for my writing course students

cause the best way to teach people to read and think critically is to confront their own shit

A lot of it is from the book We Have Not Been Moved: Resisting Racism and Militarism in 21st Century America by PM Press

reading, listening, and shutting up are 100% free

but y'all white people stay making frivolous life choices and expecting PoCs to pay the price as you "unpack your white fragility" and other nonsense

i managed to learn about transphobia, ableism, casteism

a whole host of things without going to the people who experience that oppression and burdening them with my palpable ignorance

I can't even call experiencing it a microaggression

because i'm a firm believer that if you are basic af when it comes to understanding white supremacy

you really don't have to make that known to me, a Black person

except instead of saying "all you need is love"

you say "all you need is a seed bomb, a solar panel, a solar toilet, whatever....."

when asked what are your tangible solutions to dismantling white supremacy

come to think of it

too many of the white people of "radical" mastodon remind me of my decidedly mediocre white students.......

imagine paying tens of thousands of dollars to get a degree only to quote or paraphrase the musical mediocrity of John Lennon in a class on understanding systemic oppression

it is teeewww early to be responding to student emails on why "love is all your need" or "center the most marginalized" sans any tangible praxis are not solutions to racial justice (or systems of oppression), and therefore do not rise to the occasion of graduate level thought

"living a pacified and neutralized life in the present disaster, a life that is lived only as a sum of its digitized predicates and the operations of power enacted upon them, will mean committing to dying along with the planet"

" Legacies of capitalist accumulation, colonial expansion, and sovereign domination all steer, filter, and technically rearticulate sexualized and racialized inheritances and hierarchies in arrays of cybernetic apparatuses that recursively command the intensive present. "
