decol ..

I realised quite a few years ago, ( as another part of this whole decolonising hikoi ) that all the info I was being ‘fed’, was white. that’s just the way it is, or so I was told.
so I decided to remedy that by filtering out all white white resources .. which means, I don’t do white news, or white movies, or white ‘scientific’ facts, or white medical facts .. my first port of call is ancestors, brown / indigenous & black. white is an after thought.
easy peasy you might think?
but No.
it took about a year, after filtering out the other, to build up decent go-to resources of the BIPOC persuasion.
lately, as I’ve watched our world implode, I’ve realised that Most, not all, but most peeps, even my own, still refer to the white methodologies, resources, references & advice first .. & everything else .. maybe .. as an after thought.
you want to understand? like, really? change who & what you listen too.
it won’t take you long from there, to see & understand the disparity. feel & understand the struggle & the tenacity of survival. watch & witness the resilience & brilliance of thriving.
you can’t fuck with that.

Ps, the whitest resource I own is FB 😂 JS .. & that is coming to a close real soon ✊🏾

  1. That is a valid point. I wouldn’t know where to start looking for some non-white resources in Australia. Except the Koori News newspaper, I don’t know of any other source. You have made me think about where I can find them. Of course there are always the Indigenous people in my own community (who I do talk to fairly regularly) but they too are generally reliant on white sources of information. Thanks for the thinking point and the new perspective.
