"We cannot educate white women and take them by the hand. Most of us are willing to help but we can’t do the white woman’s homework for her. That’s an energy drain. More times than she cares to remember, Nellie Wong, Asian American feminist writer, has been called by white women wanting a list of Asian American women who can give readings or workshops. We are in danger of being reduced to purveyors of resource lists."-
Feminism needs to be authentically intersectional, or nothing at all. This speaks volumes

"I’m interested in a POC, QTPOC, poor and working class, crip and disabled, womyn centered, love-based revolution. To be more specific, I want to participate in a community that de-prioritizes whiteness, patriarchy and masculinity, celebrity, cis folk, and other forms of privilege when discussing who we are and how we want to exist with each other. I want to see a QTPOC culture that recognizes how we recreate hierarchy and privilege and works to reject those hierarchies and privileges when they are offered to us. We cannot practice accountability as a community if we cannot practice it within our individual lives. Even if we cannot stop people in positions of great political and cultural power from doing the oppressive things they have been doing for centuries, we can create and uphold an alternative model.- Jezebel Delilah X, De-Centering Whiteness Through Radical Accountability in QTPOC Community (via fuckyeahlgbtqblackpeople)
We have an abundance of intellectual, artistic, familial, romantic, psychological, medicinal, and economic resources; we do not need systems that emerge from this country’s white supremacist heritage to survive. Further, we need to stop living in opposition to whiteness when we can be living for the empowerment and survival of each other. We can take care of each other if we choose; but, when we do it, it needs to be rooted in love, self-reflection, and generosity. So, this year, when you critique U.S. imperialism on July 4th, dedicate some of that energy to critiquing and shifting the ways you contribute to and benefit from that imperialism by creating new practices, rituals, and systems for intra-community accountability and resilience."
