“Asexual POC Resources”, a static page on this blog inspired by a linkspam challenge in 2015, is my personal attempt at compiling links to various content on / by / for asexual people of color (POC) in the hopes of it not only being a resource for myself but for others as well.

this post contains only the latest links (as of 07/27/2016) to be added to the resources page. if you’d like to reblog more links, please see the original links masterpost and / or the pride art linkspam post. as with the previous two posts, this post will not be updated. for the latest links and revisions, please visit the resources page directly.

Attention Protesters: That Over-Zealous Agitator Might Be A COP (VIDEO)
Since protest movements are legal, why do police infiltrate them with undercover cops?
By Elisabeth Parker

How can undercover cops destroy a protest movement? In an entry on agent provocateurs, Wikipedia explains that options for these cops include: causing drama to sow discord, inciting protesters to acts that are violent and/or not legal (though framing them or setting them up works just as well), and publicly sharing information in a way that makes a protest movement look less credible…

For some people, ‘performance’ is a bad word, and even for those of us who think otherwise, it can have frustrating implications. Poets of color, particularly black poets, are often pigeonholed into not only the presumption of performance, but the implication that performance—as a mode of poetry—is somehow crude, somehow lesser. I often recall, with pain, a meeting in which an older white man told me and another woman of color that poetry slam is useful insofar as it might bring poor, black, and 'Hispanic’ children of the 'inner-city’ in proximity to literature so that, eventually, they might read real poetry.

We don’t need Lincoln-inspired racial ‘unity.’ We need whites to stop being racist.
The call for everyone to “do the work” to unite against hatred overlooks the fundamental fact that it’s whites — and only whites — who must work to fix the racist structures in our society.

To quote another historical figure, the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: “The thing wrong with America is white racism. … It’s time for America to have an intensified study on what’s wrong with white folks.” Clinton could have spoken about racial justice.

Instead, like so many others, she focused on the rhetoric of unity. And calling for unity places yet another burden on black people.

Talk of unity, reconciliation and restoring trust is a diversion from the raw, ugly, excruciatingly painful work of addressing the systemic racism that is tearing our nation apart. In their rush to avoid the real work in favor of a kumbaya fantasy comfort zone, they refuse to confront history and the truth about present moment…

I’ve never played Overwatch, but apparently a major plot point in the game’s story is that Gabriel Reyes was passed over his friend Jack Morrison (who happens to be white) for a promotion to head of the organization. Some times afterwards, Reyes then proceeded to destroy the organization and kill every member.

And this MUST do with race. Right…
