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
I also regularly give my white students PDF copies of Towards Collective Liberation by Chris Crass as a model for what anti-racist white organizers and social change makers can look like
Crass is an anarchist UU preacher whose perspective on whiteness and liberation trumps a lot of trash out there
I made this google drive folder for a friend who facilitates radical online reading groups for black folks
its a collection of ebooks related to black liberation from my Verso, Haymarket, PM Press, and Seven Stories Press digital libraries
@blkstarseed hey I get what you mean but the way this is written is pretty ableist...
Let me rephrase
if you require the constant labor of PoCs when reading their material to arrive at any semblance of a desire to dismantle whiteness.
then do not be surprised when PoCs don't take you seriously in your claims to care about liberation from whiteness and white supremacy
does that work for you?
@blkstarseed yes. 💕🤗
@funnypanja i'm so glad i could take the time to rephrase it to your liking.......
@blkstarseed I see what you did there.
@blkstarseed This whole thread is excellent stuff!!! Thanks for putting it together!
@federicomena you're welcome! probably gonna pin it so people can easily access it from here on out
@blkstarseed I would share your post if it would not link to Google Drive. Google already collects too much data about everybody. I do not want them to get more data about what activists are reading.
Please consider moving your list to a #GoogleAlternative! Here is a list of alternatives I started to compile years ago: https://pad.foebud.org/google-alternatives
@blkstarseed Thank you for this!
