The Point That Went Missing - Talib Kwelli

mllemagnetic:

"White supremacy, by definition, is the belief that white people are superior to those of all other races, especially the black race, and should therefore dominate society. The fact is, the slave owning founding fathers of this country were white supremacists, as was the vast majority of the population back then. These founding fathers put systems in place to ensure their children and their children’s children would reap the benefits of their racism for generations to come. These systems work. America’s institution’s and values are forged in the fires of this racism, a system created to justify the greed and the lack of humanity of the Europeans who profited from the Atlantic slave trade."

The inner cities, where the people are the poorest, become pools where police, judges and prosecutors fish for bodies to fill prison quotas.”

"We can’t afford to put peace above justice."

Somewhere at the end of this half smoked cigarette, there is a sentence waiting. It will contain all the right quotes and statistics, all the histories and traumas. I will let it speak and then I will be silent.

It will place you in the living rooms of nervous mothers waiting to hear back from daughters and sons who still haven’t returned from a protest. It will slam you against the back of a military jeep and call you a whore in a language you never wanted to learn. You will feel choked with grief or loss or white phosphorus. Or all three.

After all, in Gaza, it’s always all three.

Words

I don’t know where they come from.
I can summon them
(sometimes I can)
into my mind,
into my fingers,
I don’t know why. Or I’ll suddenly hear them
walking, sometimes
waking—
they don’t often come when I need them.
When I need them most terribly,
never.

“we study partial folds in them alpine jukes, bent, bow-tongued stick
and move and mahagonnic rupture in september, in alabama, throat
sung to the kabaret’s general steppe and fade. out here you breathe
they breath, this bridge is just, this bridge is just a pile of bones this
load be breathing, this alpine rasp in this dry bridge just be weaving.”

Rape has become endemic in South Africa, so a medical technician named Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately gathered national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her forlornly, “If only I had teeth down there.”
Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis was stuck in his pants zipper.
Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called Rapex. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the Rapex removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, “A medieval device for a medieval deed.”
