"...and I can't believe no one cares that we're sitting in the dark."
The brutal truth is that the bulk of white people in America never had any interest in educating black people, except as this could serve white purposes. It is not the black child’s language that is in question, it is not his language that is despised: It is his experience. A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled. A child cannot be taught by anyone whose demand, essentially, is that the child repudiate his experience, and all that gives him sustenance, and enter a limbo in which he will no longer be black, and in which he knows that he can never become white. Black people have lost too many black children that way.
Oh, but you heard that part where you get to do whatever the hell you want.
And act like no one gets to call you on your shit. B/c oppression. Who do you think you’re talking to?
Then I guess that means we need standards to hold our own selves accountable, right?
B/c we’re in this together. B/c our arrival is dependent on each other.
Nb-I’m talking to my ppl, qtpoc and black folk. Everyone else can mind their business.
Listen, that’s why you have insurance. Don’t open my door and break iphone, cause then you gotta die
Na-huh. Missing the point. Insurance is for the financial aftermath. What about the high potential of you hurting someone because you were texting? Or just the inconvenience of having to file a report. Who has time for that shit? Pull the Fuck over.
For many of us, the label “queer” symbolizes an acknowledgement that through our existence and everyday survival we embody sustained and multi-sited resistance to systems that seek to normalize our sexuality, exploit our labor, and constrain our visibility.
