"It is only possible to systematically ignore the trauma experienced by Palestinians by privileging the humanity of one group (Israelis) above the other, arguably because of Australia’s affinity with Israel as a colonial-settler project. It is the fantasy of colonisers and their sympathisers that Palestinians should accept the status quo and can be anaesthetised with the illusory promise of a two-state solution. "

Knock, and he’ll open the door,
Vanish, and he’ll make you shine like the sun
Fall, and he’ll raise you to the heavens
And he’ll turn you into everything.

Please, for the love of everything that is good, do not clean up Maya Angelou’s life to fit your own respectability politics. Yes, she’s one of the most well-respected black authors, poets, and activists to live, but she also was an underage mother, dancer, and sex worker and all of those parts of her made up all of who she was, not just the parts that are convenient for your personal agenda.
Thank you the twitter handle ReinaAtlantico for reminding me of this.
