Things I jotted down at an event against the deportations of Dominicans of Haitian descent and Haitians in the DR:
A possessive investment in each others oppression - Junot Diaz
Role of extractive industries on Hispaniola - Quisqueya
Racism without racists - "No somos racistas" campaign in the DR and on social media
Here to be "Hispanic"=white in Miami
No consciousness here about "Hispanic" racialization
This has always been a faith based activity
We seek to increase our capacity to live other peoples oppression
This has always been a small group
We always want more and call for more
but all strategies can work simultaneously.
No one strategy will lead us to the promised land.
The thing that seems irrelevant now
will be the most relevant down the line.
