Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez [AOC] Somewhere along the line, people in positions of influence decided that Flint water, Bronx air, or poor schools WEREN’T acceptable for their children, but could be accepted for someone else’s.

And I will never think that is a reasonable compromise to make.

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] I was asked by a white man ”If Egyptians were black people. Why wasn’t the rest of Africa full of similar structures”

There are more pyramids in Sudan than in Egypt

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 this is a juvenile, materialistic, exoteric statement that assumes that rock quarries were evenly distributed across the continent; we need to look for the meta-physical similarities which was the work of Diop

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 the Roman way was to build in concrete which was relatively portable compared to building in stone but it *covered* the land with a covering of imperial uniformity, a macho act of violence against diversity

Eric Gonzaba [EGonzaba] My top research advice: Archives are amazing, but don’t buy the academic fetishization of archival research. Microfilm research is good! Can’t afford travel? Digitized sources are good! Interlibrary loan is good! There’s not one way to produce amazing scholarship #twitterstorians

Sheena Allen [whoisSheena] Many blacks in my peer group are making good money but because they’re the first person in their family to “make it”, they are still living paycheck-to-paycheck because their money isn’t just their money. Their money is mom’s light bill money, little bro’s football money, etc.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @whoisSheena And many of these folk cannot take “dating” or some kind of self-care activity seriously because of these family-scale responsibilities—many do this alone as the only functional person of the entire family.

Stacey Patton [DrStaceyPatton] This is why I constantly rant about not hitting kids. Somewhere a parent is listening and will make the change. And when they spare the rod, their child will shift the universe. [twitter.com]

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @DrStaceyPatton Even after full understanding of self-enslavement, the breakthrough for me was seeing that parental violence on children is usually wrapped in a fantasy-based wish to make problems go away instantly—which is not really teaching children the reality of problems: beatings are lies.

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] They keep using the word ‘civilisation’ yet they think that we were uncivilised before colonisation? Civilisation by definition is ‘human society with its well-developed social organisations, or the culture and way of life of a society or country at a particular period in time’

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 one of the most intellectually radical things you can do is search the world for attributes of “civilization” with imperial conquest not present in its “progress”; civilization without imperialism is a standard that can only be met in one region of the non-fiction world

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 when everything in your power came from imperial murder you would do everything in your power to make sure “human nature” is redefined to make imperialism the new normal, worldwide Disney entertainment
