and white people always seem to forget
July 20, 2013
i have no answers
i can empathize with those feelings. i have my privileges too.
i am, right this very second, oppressing people
example: i live on stolen Indigenous land.
so long as i do
i benefit from this settler gov’t established on a continuing Indigenous genocide
this won’t change until the Indigenous people of this region
reclaim what was once theirs.
i have never (and will never) seek out an Indigenous person to make me feel okay with this.
it isn’t okay.
