This doesn’t mean “no white people allowed”. It means that whiteness, the views that are built in whiteness and the culture that focuses on whiteness in the highest regard will be slowly broken down and become a part of a group where PoC can have a decent handle in conversation without fear of being railroaded. Some of the first ideas I want to implement involve cutting down commentary with loaded language and cutting down the current regimen’s focus on language over ideas without paying care to language differences between races and cultures even within the same area.
I also want to, somehow, encourage diunital thinking over dichotomous thinking.
I will say this very clearly: This aims to be a safe space for me. This will not a safe space for you. This is not a safe space for whiteness to go unchallenged in any context and since whiteness pervades ALL marginalizations and takes over, it will be the thing I am most focused on eliminating.
That said, errors will be made, because I don’t yet have a complete idea how that whiteness controls the way we frame social uprooting today, and until we can come up with a set of “rules” so to speak on that, it will get fuzzy.
