After watching all the videos I was ready to throw some thoughts about how outraged I was, or how much I cried while hearing how the Navajo communities are being destroyed tearing appart families from their children. I needed some time though, an din the meantime a video crossed my social network. A video of a black woman that had something important to say about the conversations we whites were having in our families. She said 'are you crazy, people? you're all sitting around the table discussing that black people are people, and about the structural violence they suffer and how that affects their context and so and so?' She said 'what the hell? Talk about yourself, talk about what white people are doing, you're destroying communities, talk about that, stop talking about other people, and look at all the horrors you are provoking'
She was damn right. So after watching, now I feel I want to talk more about how we all held our white supremacy by putting aside everything that confronts us with a difference. We cannot stand the difference, cause that could mean that someone else has something better to offer that we don't. And to protect that parcel of power we're willing to dehumanize every other culture that surrounds us, every difference, every system that doesn't belong to ours. And this efforts to dehumanize: taking children away from their parents, using bodies for cruel medical trials, holding people imprisioned in devastating conditions, creating laws to make people poorer and less able to survive the system, makes us, the least of the humans. We're dehumanizing ourselves. Even if we're not decision takers, we put up with it, making us a dehumanized ens capable of not feeling empathy, or the aim to protect and fight for someone. Cause we also need to protect our white supremacy. We are not humans anymore. I don't know what we are, but we're quite disgusting.
