Imagine Dragons - Radioactive [8 Bit Remix by NickRemixes]
I’m waking up, I feel it in my soul.
One of the most uncomfortable viewing experiences I’ve had in my life came watching an episode of John Safran vs God where the comedian organised for a group of Aborigines to knock on the door of a house, the front of which displayed a plaque reading, ‘We are proud to acknowledge the Wurundjeri People as the traditional owners of this land’.
Two young Whitefella women opened their front door to be met with a group of Blackfellas asking politely if they could move in. When one of the astonished women asked what made them think they could demand that, the Blackfellas pointed to the sign.
It was a brilliant skewering of the Left, a devastating reveal of the limitations of symbol. Watching the sketch was mortifying because I recognised myself in the young women’s embarrassed and confused reactions. I, too, have been in houses displaying such upfront identification with Aboriginal solidarity and land rights.
This is an absolutely brilliant article about the limitations of western liberal notions of equality and social justice, and it is a must read for all would-be-allies and leftist activists. Just how far do your ideals run? For most people, the answer is, “only the point where I become somewhat uncomfortable and no further”.
This is also an important article for marginalised peoples, because as Andrea Smith points out so poignantly, we all have to face the way in which White supremacy pits us against one another through what she calls the three logics of that White supremacy: (1) slaveability/anti-black racism, which anchors capitalism; (2) genocide, which anchors colonialism; and (3) orientalism, which anchors war. So when we envision a truly post-colonial existence, where do we see ourselves in relation to other marginalised groups? What discomfort must we face to overcome these logics of White supremacy?

Permission to change “are you satan” to “are you metatron” because Metatron is actually the embodiment of true evil in this world whereas Satan was just pretty chill.
“ Satan was just pretty chill.”
what the hell is even going on in your fandom anymore
let’s just say that the apocalypse was less stressful
In fact a lot of us really miss the apocalypse and want satan back

The oldest person alive was born on April 19, 1897, meaning that April 18th, 1897 was approximately the last time the Earth was inhabited by an entirely different set of people and if you don’t think that’s the realest shit ever then you can get right on outta town.
