You have ‘anti-racist feminist’ in caps on your blog but you then say ‘bitch please’ in an ignorant rant (“pissing time away” in liberal arts? Really?) against indigenous WoC? That is painful to see.
Jump on this post and hate it, be angry, work aggressions out, create dialogue. Do it. It’s tumblr, it won’t affect anybody. The only thing that matters is our attitudes outside of tumblr, and I sure as fuck don’t carry this attitude around with me all the time, this time of hate and anger. Tumblr is a place where i put it so I don’t have to carry it around with me.
Those communities who seek to identify with their past are not always allowed to do so freely. In those areas where people have been resettled, they do not feel a part of the heritage found there, either because colonial propaganda has convinced them that it does not belong to them or because, even if they believe that it is the product of local people, it belongs to other people who they do not know and as such, it is best to let it be rather than tamper with it in any way.
Either way, it can be safely concluded that one of the worst legacies of colonialism has been the permanent dislocation of people from their heritage.
When Indigenous people (some, NOT all) think they are the only ones worthy of protecting the planet… Bitch please, I’m in school studying as Environmental Science and biology major, and you’re pissing time away in liberal arts, stfu, and reconsider your argument and your life choices. Ya, I get that you got fucked over and you’re still getting oppressed, but don’t exclude minds that are trying understand your past as well as work hard enough in their own communities to protect and serve our planet. Get over yourselves.
