"The axe forgets; the tree remembers."

"When Audre Lorde made that much quoted yet often misunderstood cautionary statement warning us that “the master’s tools will never dismantle the master’s house,” she was urging us to remember that we must engage in a process of visionary thinking that transcends the ways of knowing privileged by the oppressive powerful if we are to truly make revolutionary change. She was, in the deep structure of this statement, reminding us that it is easy for women and any exploited or oppressed group to become complicit in structures of domination, using power in ways that reinforce rather than challenge or change."

Black people policing other black people’s blackness, creating a separation between “real” black people and “other” black people, assuming that all black Americans have the same exact cultural framework, and in general replicating the same oppressive power structures that white supremacy thrives off of will never, ever, ever be a good look.
