This is brilliant. Thank you for truth telling in spaces that don’t want to hear. I am sick to death of folks being able to study blackness, but are afraid to be in close proximity to blackness. Of being okay speaking about “black death” but have never talked to black people who are still here and making space for ourselves in an anti-black world. It is like whiteness can’t help itself and always sees us/blackness as a site to study and take from but never acknowledge or cooperate with.
