re the racial hierarchy of the philippines post
Negritos all the way at the bottom, eh? And while we may have inherited this from the spanish, we are the ones responsible for either upholding it or tearing it down.
This is why anti-Blackness must *must* be a focus of what we do.
We will never decolonize if we don’t respect and love and see the humanity of the people who’ve been in the Philippines the longest and other Black people.
Keep that in mind as you work for decolonization and for liberation.
Keep it in mind or fail.
