Do you ever think about the fact that the US has created and legitimized a system of institutionalized inequality by funding schools through property taxes? That basically a child’s education is only as good as the value of the property in their neighborhood. Funny how education is so often viewed as an equalizing factor when there is nothing equal about it.
Esta Universidad me trae de pendeja. This institution doesn’t care about me and I feel used. I’m tired of people unvalidating my feelings, telling me I’m too angry or sensitive, telling me to stop complaining, and trying to keep me complacent – as if this institution didn’t do that enough already. Why do we silence each other? I’m gonna stay here and I’m going to keep resisting and I’m not gonna be quiet about it.
Yall so basic for that shit, so upset, especially seeing so many people within the community support that kind of colonization. This is serious and it makes people sick and depressed. And Lawd knows we don’t have the resources at this school to support our mental health in the first place.
Yesterday, a lot of students wrote about how they didn’t appreciate the letter we sent out against cultural appropriation. And a lot of brown students wrote that they didn’t appreciate it. It makes me sad and it fucking sucks that I have to take time away from my studies in order to deal with this. It’s so stupid that I have to know more about my history and everyone else’s in order to defend my points on something like cultural appropriation. Not having to do that is privilege.
