sometimes i truly believe
that white people are allergic to history and context.
but maybe the reason why we have to stay good at history is because we have to keep it all in our heads
even when we write our histories down, they are buried under the piles of white lies and misinterpretations
or filtered through the white gaze
but history is what grounds us
history, for us, is a form of resistence.
and white people hate us
because we never forget
