Here’s the thing about racism: it requires power and privilege. The privilege of being able to dismiss mass murder, genocide, rape, the destruction of histories, cultures, languages, nations and tribes as “scarcely violent”. The privilege of having been on the “right” side of history, on the other side of the whip. The power to be in a position to endorse laws and worldviews that perpetuate that privilege. Power and privilege that come in no small part from the wealth amassed by colonial forebears on the backs of those unmentionable millions. — Extract from the most recent issue of the Galavant Times in response to this.
