Feminism involves so much more than gender equality and it involves so much more than gender. Feminism must involve consciousness of capitalism (I mean the feminism that I relate to, and there are multiple feminisms, right). So it has to involve a consciousness of capitalism and racism and colonialism and post-colonial ties, and ability and more genders than we can even imagine and more sexualities than we ever thought we could name.
There is so much history of this racist violence that simply to bring one person to justice is not going to disturb the whole racist edifice.
We are never assured of justice without a fight.
Racism cannot be separated from capitalism.
I don’t think it’s necessary to feel guilty. Because I know that I’m still doing the work that is going to help more sisters and brothers to challenge the whole criminal justice system, and I’m trying to use whatever knowledge I was able to acquire to continue to do the work in our communities that will move us forward.
I have a hard time accepting diversity as a synonym for justice. Diversity is a corporate strategy.
