Since 1980, 3000 native Canadian women have been murdered/gone missing. Indigenous women are five times more likely than other women to die as a result of violence. Sixty percent of known perpetrators are white men.

1 in 3 Native American women are raped within their lifetime, and are at extreme risk of violence from non-native (white) men. x x x

Despite push from the UN for a national inquiry, Canada continues to largely ignore the violence against Native Women. x

Agency has become a catch word. In a way, this intoxication with ‘agency’ is the product of liberal individualism. The ability of individuals to fashion themselves, to change their live, is given ideological priority over the relation within which they themselves are actually formed, situated, and sustained.
Talal Asad, “Modern Power and the Reconfiguration of Religious Traditions" Interviewed by Saba Mahmood (via namumkin)
It is fashionable today to discourse on poverty and the necessity, if not of eradicating it, at least of reducing its extent. This is a discourse of charity, in the nineteen century style, which does not devote much time inquiring into the economic and social mechanisms which engender the “poverty” in question, and this in an epoch where the scientific and technological means at the disposal of humanity are sufficient to eradicate it totally.

Think about the amount of support and donations both Darren Wilson and George Zimmerman received, in very little time without them even campaigning  for it. People are eager to support those who terrorize/murder Black youth. These are not isolated incidents but part of a much larger systemic issue.

Lives that are not considered grievable become a target for annihilation in order to protect those lives that are worthy of ‘living’.
