Behold-Jane the GentriFUker & Conscious the Crakkker- Post Trump Infiltration Tactics
"Put on a suit, tell them you are a 25 year old wite gurl and they will believe you cause racism is alive and well in amerikkka," my mama used to say. And she was always right. Apartment after apartment, i would don the "suit" (purchased at Kmart for 10.99) and I , a 12 year old girl, would tell a story about making $65,000 a year and being 25 years old and they would believe me without a blink of any eye. This was because i looked like my colonizer father. No other reason. My mama was always turned down for the same apartment or subjected to endless hoops she could not jump through.
For folks with race and class privilege the call is different and deeper like we teach at POOR Magazine's PeopleSkool and POOR Magazine's solidarity family who graduated form Peopleskool manifest, i am asking you to understand, overstand and innerstand that this is the time to activate what I call Community Reparations- To activate emergency redistribution of your resources.
This begins by realizing that just because you were born into inherited and stolen wealth it doesnt mean that you have a better understanding than someone who was not, what to do with those resources. Once you have realized this, please begin immediately redistributing those resources to help purchase stolen indigenous territory for unhoused, migrant/immigrant, indigenous, and formerly incarcerated peoples to help build more examples of what we poor, unhoused, migrant, indigenous youth and elders are manifesting at Homefulness and our sistren at Sogorea Te Land Trust. Both of these are poor and indigenous peoples-led land liberation movements focused on freeing up stolen indigenous land from the lie of "property ownership" and creating self-determiNATIONs, which in the case of Homefulness will eventually become safe havens for any and all indigenous peoples in danger of removal by (Not Your)Homeland Sekkkurity
For those of you light skinned poor peoples of color and/or poor wite peoples, don't keep worrying about melanin and your lack of it, just activate those inherent privileges, activate clear and present protection, navigation and conversations with the amerikkklan population of perpetrators and bring on the infiltration.
The next session of PeopleSkool is on Jan 28-29 - email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
