"The only truly effective response that will neutralize repression is already captured by the politics and practice of abolition and decolonization, led by black and indigenous communities against the colonial-capitalist order, and the politics of anti-violence work, which locates heteropatriarchy and misogyny as key conditions for state violence and repression"

"the demand for love is not simply here expressed as a demand to love the nation as an abstract idea, but also to love a person whose body can stand in for the national idea, as a confirmation of its value...

Within the politics of love, identifying yourself as a white woman and as a white Aryan would mean loving not just men, or even white men, but white men who can return the idealised image of whiteness back to myself."

"Jordi Savall se arma aquí con algunos de sus instrumentos más antiguos... para plantear un diálogo entre músicas salidas de las civilizaciones que ocuparon la cuenca mediterránea en los siglos medievales... A partir de las prácticas de instrumentistas folclóricos de Creta, Macedonia, Turquía o Marruecos, Savall lleva décadas reconstruyendo el sonido de todos estos instrumentos para conectarlos con la sensibilidad del oyente contemporáneo."

I don't think the original lament was meant to be sung in a round but my favorite arrangements of Step by Step are one verse in unison, and then in rounds of 3

Black History And The Voting Myth
by William C. Anderson

offshootjournal.org/black-hist

"Distorted versions of history insist messianic leaders were required in the struggle, and fails to render Black people as capable of determining things for themselves. The state perpetuates an idea that we need a charismatic shepherd, be it a celebrity, politician, the wealthy Black elite, or otherwise to negotiate the terms of our lives. "

posting these because
1) it is important to share and boost statements from survivors
2) this person may be trying to make a "clean slate" on the fediverse and people who dodge very reasonable calls for accountability shouldn't get to sweep harm under the rug
3) this is a very well-written and thoughtful call, and we can always learn from accountability processes and necessary call-outs. Transformative Justice never ends.

"We know that white, upper-middle class, academic and/or well-known folks – who complain about ‘callout’ and ‘cancel culture’ the most – rarely lose status or security when they’re actually called on to be accountable for their behavior. We also see that they’re often addressed with much more care and compassion than more marginalized people who are confronted."

Not to knock a canonical (white) lesbian film but I was super disappointed when I found out that the movie Carol wasn’t an adaptation of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol with Cate Blanchett as Scrooge and Rooney Mara as Tiny Tim
