Sorry for the link dump; if I can edit comments I’ll come back later to clean it up and add context:
(Don’t consider this list representative of my recommended reading, there are items I might cull and it’s certainly incomplete.)
Thanks. You can for sure edit comments.
a list on decolonization would be quite remiss without lorenzo kom’boa ervin, so i put forward these two:
Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin - The Progressive Plantation
Lorenzo Kom’boa Ervin - Authoritarian Leftists
certainly you don’t have to agree with everything lorenzo kom’boa ervin says, but these two pieces are pretty valuable critiques of some of the ideas white leftists as a collective tend to have which put them at odds with minorities and people of color.
This thread is great. Additionally I would suggest to put the posted ressources in our wiki as well. There’s a new wiki page re: White Supremacy Culture and as there are some overlappings we should maybe make that page’s focus broader to include Decolonisational stuff?
