1000 roses on Canfield, the area which Mike Brown was murdered.

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’.

Another aboriginal girl has been found dead in my city

Allah yerhamo, may He grant you jannah

this makes me reflect so much on how many aboriginal women and girls (trans, cis, and intersex) we lose daily in this country
it’s disgusting and makes me ache when I think about all the powerful, incredible, important first nations, metis, and inuit women I’ve met who have taught me so much.

shit needs to change, but I feel so helpless about it, and I think a lot of other folks do too. I think white people and settlers use that as an excuse to ignore what is happening. and that is so fucked up.
