the struggles of people of color will always be interconnected, but that does not mean that i will ever understand what black people are feeling right now. or ever. i support their resistance and make myself available as a resource without claiming ownership or expertise. i do not belong to the communities being targeted, but i celebrate their empowerment, ache with their tragedies, and stand with them when they rise.
brown people need to care for each other. we need to remember that we are not isolated when we fight our oppressors. black power and yellow peril are historically linked in this way. we are not the same, but we are not alone.
