"I think what we need is a colorblind society." Now folks, when you hear somebody say that you know you’re listening to a racist…

- Jane Elliot and Oprah Winfrey discussing racism in 1992 on the Oprah Winfrey Show.

THIS WAS IN

1992

NINETEEN FUCKING NINETY-TWO

Jane Elliot is the fucking truth

she goes “i know this maybe hard for you because white males are accustomed to telling people things not listening to people so let me break it down for you”

i have died and she has resurrected me

There was a time in the early 90’s where people were really talking about race and what it meant to be black.

They’ve been talking about it or a long, long time. Hundreds of years in fact and you can find it if you know what to read. Unfortunately, talking about it doesn’t always mean things change. That’s the real tragedy. You talk about all this stuff that hardly ever gets discussed and you think “Now. Now things are really going to change. Now that we get it” but no amount of getting it reduces the stakes that the oppressors have in the game. Every generation’s epiphanies get erased and rediscovered by the next. Progress happens, but it’s slow.

“Our wants and pleasures have their origin in society; we therefore measure them in relation to society; we do not measure them in relation to the objects which serve for their gratification. Since they are of a social nature, they are of a relative nature.”

Edward Said, Interview with Timothy Appleby, The Globe and Mail, Toronto, 1986

Notice the year the interview was conducted, the trope of the Palestinian people’s resistance to systematic violence/genocide carried out by the Israelis is still labeled as “terror” The image Said talks about both exists in western and Israeli media. Recent remarks about how Palestinian mothers are responsible for killing their children because they teach them to be violent is part of this perception of what is means to resist for the Palestinian people. In the context of empire, to resist is to be labeled as violent, terrorists, as criminals and as people who do not want peace. When in reality, it is the imperial nations that create these [very systematic and well calculated] circumstances.

Hip-Hop Artist Akala on -

Being A Man 2014 | Being a Black Man

A panel including hip-hop artist Akala, CEO of Working With Men Shane Ryan, writer and broadcaster Ekow Eshun and filmmaker, theatre director and writer Topher Campbell look at the contradictory and complex ideas around Black masculinity and what tensions arise from stereotypes, colonial histories and economic power.

damn I thought that was forestpunkmutantgaaang for a min

^ LMAO I thought it was too

I recommend people watch the talk. It’s about an hour long, I believe. There’s a lot of nuance concerning compulsory heterosexuality, interracial relationships, biracial/multiracial identity, White supremacist education, sex tourism and more. (Some of the points about gender, especially since the conversation revolved around cisgender people, were off.) Unfortunately, some of the questions were pretty painful, but there were great responses.
