About Seth

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, and from black and brown community.

My commitment is to wield technology to conclude whiteness, which is necessary to help preserve and cultivate a vibrant society.

What I Do

Chicago Stepping, rollerskating, hustle, poetry, discussions on race, and web application development.

Reminders

"What white Americans have never fully understood — but the Negro can never forget — is that white society is deeply implicated in the ghetto. White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it, and white society condones it."

The Kerner Report - 1968


"The problem we face is that the ghetto is a domestic colony that's constantly drained without being replenished. And you are always telling us to lift ourselves by our own bootstraps, and yet we are being robbed every day."

Martin Luther King, Jr. August 16th, 1967
