"Without blacks on board, the only viable option, the only effective defense against the crossfire will entail forging greater alliances with an antiblack civil society and capitulating further to the magnification of state power-- a bid that carries its own indelible costs, its own pains and pleasures."

Jared Sexton, Racial Profiling and the Societies of Control (2007) p. 212 (in Joy James ed. Warfare in the American Homeland: Policing and Prison in a Penal Democracy)

"More important for present purposes, every attempt to defend the rights and liberties of the latest victims of racial profiling will inevitably fail to make substantial gains insofar as it forfeits or sidelines the fate of blacks, the prototypical targets of this nefarious police practice and the juridical infrastructure built up around it."

"Every analysis that attempts to account for the vicissitudes of racial rule and the machinations of the racial state without centering black existence within its framework-- which does not mean simply listing it among a chain of equivalents-- is doomed to miss what is essential about the situation, because what happens to blacks indicates the truth (rather than the totality) of the system, its social symptom, and all other positions can (only) be understood from this angle of vision."

financially support the black people in your life. if you don't have any, donate double to any mutual aid fund you see. for real. give your money directly to black and brown people.

uk government is literally delaying releasing their report on the higher covid-19 death rate for black and middle eastern people because they don't want to 'stoke racial tensions'. they don't give a shit.

iono, writing $10 words on gramsci and marx doesn’t mean you’re doing this. like. at all. read some critical racial theory if you want actual well rounded critical thought.
