RANT TIME: For all the Conservatives out there that just absolutely adore Milo and Blaire, here’s a friendly message. « YOU’RE NOT AND WILL NEVER BE CONSERVATIVE » Conservatism isn’t just « mUH LoW TaXEs And MuH SmALl GUbErMenT » No, with Conservatism you’re supposed to preserve your nation, culture, identity, and traditions. Yet the cuckservatives that support these two, never ever mention about conserving any of those things I mentioned about conserving, otherwise they’re afraid of being « RACIST AND BEING PRO IDENTITY POLITICS » Plus in Conservatism preserving your traditions means preserving the old status quo, therefore basically meaning that LGBT people are not supposed to be part of the Conservatism ideology. Also Milo claims to be against Identity politics yet constantly shoves down Jewish and Pro-Israel Identity politics down people’s throats without them knowing it. Plus as one of my favorite YouTubers, Squatting Slav TV has said « The fact that 1,000 virgin cucks look up to a feminine gay man who has a black boyfriend, isn’t only sad, but just shows how far conservative values have been degraded over the years. » He’s very right, Modern American Conservatism has degraded, and in all honesty it’s pretty much dead, and no longer stands for Traditional Values and National Identity. So all in all fuck Milo and Blaire!
I can’t wait to read this! Increasingly important, given the obsession we have with ‘recognition’ as a form of freedom. As long as wrongs in the last are ‘recognized’ then everything’s fine and we should all move on 🙄. The way this works is: we can admit slavery was wrong, without talking about how slavery has shaped the present, or without talking about reparations. 📖
It reminds me of how feminism as well has got caught up in this form of politics, where as long as people acknowledge gender inequality then we’ve achieved everything we need to. This, of course, leaves structures and sexism untouched, and becomes an easy way out of actual transformation. Like he says in this book, this is one of the major problems with liberalism and liberals: a lot of talk, very little change. Social inequality won’t disappear by recognizing it; it will disappear by changing structures that produce it. 📖
Over the past forty years, recognition has become the dominant mode of negotiation and decolonization between the nation-state and Indigenous nations in North America. The term “recognition” shapes debates over Indigenous cultural distinctiveness, Indigenous rights to land and self-government, and Indigenous peoples’ right to benefit from the development of their lands and resources. 📖
In a work of critically engaged political theory, Glen Sean Coulthard challenges recognition as a method of organizing difference and identity in liberal politics, questioning the assumption that contemporary difference and past histories of destructive colonialism between the state and Indigenous peoples can be reconciled through a process of acknowledgment.

Voter IDs are just to prevent voter fraud from happening. The libs don’t like that because that’s where half of their votes come from. The left needs to stop telling minorities that they are victims, us as Americans need to think for ourselves and act as a united country, not shielded behind a politically-motivated fake race war! #voterregistration #vote #racist #identitypolitics
Identity politics is an issue that I deeply dislike. Identity politics forces people into categories, and often times if people think outside of those social norms they are harassed like I went over in my free thought essay. Both liberals and conservatives use identity politics to coerce people into thinking and voting for their ideologies. While I feel that parties should try and win voters based upon their groups merits and ideas, instead of forcing societal norms on them, and that a free thinking loyal base is more fervent for a cause than a reluctant one. #politics #democrat #republican #identity #identitypolitics #biggov
Newsflash identity politics-loving left. If you truly cared about the lives of minorities, you would know that the social justice programs you put in place are only victimizing them further. Trump has done more for Americans of any and all colors than any other president. #identitypolitics #trump2020 #trump
I wonder how leftists would react to an explicitly all-white movie cast? If this trend continues, every race is going to have its own movies, with only their own people in it. Oh, except for white people. That would be racist.
People will Die for What They are Identified with. If you identify yourself as being depressed; you will practice the actions of depressing and you will Be Depressed. If You identify as Being Joyful and Calm, those are the actions you will Practice to Be Joyful and Calm. Identity can be Positive and Negative. But Most Important is Too Understand that You Are Doing It and Keeping it Alive. Such as The Conservative Liberal identity fight. In this Way; we allow the Constraints of the Words or Position define Us. When You're Aware; You'll Drop Most Identities, in Favor of Paying Attention to Every Moment in Its Entirety. Where Does Your Identification and Attention lie??? #identitypolitics #fight #politics #understanding #communication #philosophy #ntensefitway #think #reason #feelings

Trudeau often accuses others of "fear-mongering" and trying to "divide Canadians". Ironically, it’s Trudeau’s own inner circle that repeatedly makes disparaging claims that divide Canadians on the basis of identity politics.
"Just after the 2016 election, a former Never Trumper explained his change of heart in the Atlantic: “My college-age daughter constantly hears talk of white privilege and racial identity, of separate dorms for separate races (somewhere in heaven Martin Luther King Jr is hanging his head and crying) … I hate identity politics, [but] when everything is about identity politics, is the left really surprised that on Tuesday millions of white Americans … voted as ‘white’? If you want identity politics, identity politics is what you will get.” "

: The Artist's Identity
Georgia O’Keefe is celebrated for unselfconsciously exploring and expressing her sexuality through her flower paintings. At the time however, some male commentators branded her as a nymphomaniac of sorts, presenting her as ‘obsessed’ with sex.
It is clear that the artist’s individuality is important, and will remain so for a long time. But perhaps we should assess our preconceptions before we ascribe meaning to works of art which is not actually to be found. Is it really not ok for Picasso to take influence from African art? How can we ever know whether he did this out of respect or as an act of colonial theft? Would it be ok if, say, a Native American were to take influence in the very same way? And shouldn’t anybody be allowed to make work referring to something as primordial as sexuality without being belittled? How do we even know how much O’Keefe felt that sexuality was a part of her work, and how much of her paintings were preoccupied with merely representing flowers?

I'm still struggling to find myself- evolution
I'm not where I want to be as yet-destiny
What goes up must surely come down -karma
I'm from multiple backgrounds and possess experiences- Afropolitan narratives
I'm not perfect and love to take risks- Human being
I'm socio-economically and politically charged non-conforming creature - Queer Culture
I'm human not a conglomerate - Multinational vs My lens
I must say I'm definitely living in the moment and constantly evolving. Life is a journey

What's this Indian people keep claiming?? Is it a misnomer? Is it a name given to indigenous people BY indigenous people's?? Is it a title used by Spanish and Portugese explorers to identify the inhabitants of the Americas.. That would make the term no better than African in that it is a name given by invaders and conquerors... I like to go to the source of the matter and question those who use either term (Indian & Native American) or neither... Regardless we are all still #Moors
.. No matter how you twist it... 🤔🤔🤔 "The reason is that the Native peoples of North America are incredibly diverse. It would be like referring to both a Romanian and an Irishman as European. It's true that they are both from Europe, but their people have very different histories, cultures, and languages. The same is true of Indians. The Cherokee are vastly different from the Lakota, the Dine, the Kiowa, and the Cree, but they are all labeled Native American. So whenever possible an Indian would prefer to be called a Cherokee or a Lakota or whichever tribe they belong to. This shows respect because not only are the terms Indian, American Indian, and Native American an over simplification of a diverse ethnicity, but you also show that you listened when they told what tribe they belonged to."
