Entitled “Chasing Bruce Lee”, inspired by the poem of the same name by Beau Sia
"You begin to liquidate a people by taking away its memory. You destroy its books, its culture, its history. And then others write other books for it, give another culture to it, invent another history for it. Then the people slowly begins to forget what it is and what it was. The world at large forgets it still faster."
— Milan Hübl, quoted in Milan Kundera’s The Book of Laughter and Forgetting, as translated by Aaron Asher (via miraging)
"This is what I think about “Occupy (nice wording, by the way) Wall Street”: “The point to me is that we are including THEM. WE laid the ground work for this moment in time with our bodies, communities, love and strength. WE created the critical analysis for this moment, WE created the models of resistance and transformative change, WE have been organizing for the past 500 years, and WE have been the ones organizing especially hard in the post-911 world—THEY are joining the rest of us. THAT is the point to me—to make sure the question does not get rewritten to “where are all the people of color” when we all know the real question is “where have the white folks been?"
