someone on the bird site asked what their black followers want their nonblack followers to know and ill share mine here (though i will admit i was thinking specifically of yt people at the time):

learn to put your body between black people and violence. chances are the violence will stop or lessen if it sees that you might be the target. it will not stop for me.

"if i do one thing you dont agree with and you dont love me anymore, was it ever even love?"

~filthy rich, its family night and im trying my best not to turn this into a sign to show at everyone in this room while screaming

if you've spent any length of time on the fediverse and value anti-racism, community building, decoloniality, challenging oppressive cultural norms, and generally making spaces safe for vulnerable folks, then you've benefited from the work that @CaribenxMarciaX has done here

if you can afford a few quid each month, i highly recommend subscribing to show your appreciation and help them continue their work (and you get top content and updates straight into your mailbox!): artistmarciax.com/subscription

complaining about “echo chambers” is a dogwhistle for defending the status quo.

not sure how it came to pass that “get out of your echo chamber” meant “fuck critical thinking, time to entertain some shitty ideas!” but don't get tricked by it

"Decolonization demands fearlessness beneath the white supremacist gaze."

people think they're with it but then use the term "the blacks"

"If they were black..." statements tend to be used to demand more force and build up of the state apparatus, rather than to grow tangible support for black liberation. You should be worried if you hear people talking that way.

Any hypotheticals around blackness tend to be tricks of the skillful oppressor who knows invocation of blackness is too handy a tool not to keep in the arsenal.

parts of me die many times over but the grave cannot keep me long, you must know this
