Knowledge will be the first frontier of our freedom.
How can we use a structure to repair damage done by said structure?
We study the ripples. Not the water. Under which the bodies lie.
The ledgers show only one side of the accounts
They are really vague suggestions to be honest
'Hate is the IDEOLOGY that lives on in events and words; the names may change, but its evil spirit lives on, stubbornly refusing to die, despite our resolute insistence that we live in a post-racial, degendered, multi-cultural world.'
How do we get over what is not over?
By not accounting for how the freedom to wear natural hair affects the black woman specifically, we silence and erase the black female experience and thus do epistemic violence to her.
The inequalities of the present, build on a foundation of the old inequalities... and they persist.
