I moved to Detroit July of 2013. This was the best decision of my life.
I am a white-presenting jewish man who receives the membership benefits of the white buffer class. I recognize that much of my worldview has been shaped by these conditional privileges afforded to me by plantation owners, which have successfully alienated me both from my own people, from black and brown community, and from my self.
My commitment is to wield technology (+ love) for the abolition of white body supremacy.

White guilt as a video game.

"[White Voice] is about sounding like you don’t have a care. Like your bills are paid and you’re happy about your future and you’re about to jump in your Ferrari when you get off this call. Breezy, like you don’t need this money, like you never been fired, only laid off. It’s not what all White people sound like- there ain’t no real White voice, it’s what they wish they sounded like. It’s what they think they’re supposed to sound like.”
Boots Riley, Sorry To Bother You
"If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you."
President Lyndon B. Johnson
