Questions I ask myself and have not answered yet:
Am I perpetuating the colonial script? Am I reinforcing essentialist ideas? Am I fulfilling colonial destiny by elevating everyday interactions and embedding them with historical significance? Am I re-enacting historical pains? Is it worth it? Isn’t this all cyclical, reductive even?
I see POC students thirst to tell our stories, to fight when there is no argument. There is this desperation, anger. I don’t understand what to make of it. How to escape the colonial script but protect ourselves?
Pokemon? What an imperialist/colonialist game: gotta catch em all? Haha
