Watch this. Work to understand it. Talk about it with your associates that you need to.

I have been called genocidal by white leftists in the Fediverse who now advocate for Leninist land reform, and I see their posts boosted by folk who should know better by know.

So watch this. Learn better, know better, do better.

"Why should white leftists, who are clearly still enamored with white supremacy, be able to go to Black and Indigenous spaces and demand a solidarity to a movement that is not extending a jot of solidarity to them?...

"For the left-wing white supremacist, solidarity is not the neccesity to support your comrade in their liberation, but the demand to subordinate them to yours... and if Black people have the gall to disagree, then they're denounced as wanting to genocide white people.

"Decolonization for these settlers, these left-wing settlers, was limited to the metaphorical sphere, and solidarity couldn't be extended to anything as materially dangerous to white supremacy and settler-colonialism as LandBack...

"Solidarity is extended right to the point it begins to challenge settler-colonial social relations, and then the moment it does - that solidarity is renounced, and the denunciations begin...

"We see this so clearly with [white people] in the online left, who claim to support decolonization up to the point at which it unsettles their position in society, up to the point it unsettles their whiteness, at which point they begin to aggressively delegitimize it, while trying to subordinate the struggles of Black and Indigenous liberation to their white supremacist, left, social movement.

"This is not solidarity with the wretched of the earth. This is an attempt to maintain white supremacy."

yall block me if i say youre demands for student loan forgiveness don't inherently situate you against whiteness so maybe you'll listen to a white person say it.

(For real, feel free to just lift the quotes and link and repost this OP, if you're white. We both know that'll get more folk to listen.)

Welcome to the Native Reclamation of Turtle Island

We are a tiny organization educating and defending for indigenous voices, arts, lands, waters, and peoples affected by colonialism and surveillance capitalism. The destruction of Turtle Island and increase of #MMIW during the rise of fascistbook  and twoetter empires is unacceptable; indigenous peoples of Turtle Island deserve better -- to NOT BE ERASED, coerced, and censored. If you seek serenity and respite from the divisive colonist networks pumping malicious overinflated megacaps, let us know you are seeking invite, or find us from another mastodon instance.
