Going to make a pole for Luk Dim Boon Kwon practice. I’m only okay at it and that’s bothering me.

When Lucy is demonstrating her power to the audience, it is through violence toward these (brown) men. In some cases, it is through violence toward wholly innocent members of the Taiwanese population. Despite the fact that she is an American in Taiwan who has not taken the time to learn the language, she shoots a cab driver for not speaking English—a big laugh in my, and I would assume any, American theater. She also shoots a Taiwanese man on an operating table—his wound is going to be fatal anyway, her health is more important.

"Historically in Native communities, formalized Western education was used as a tool of cultural genocide, a tool of assimilation. With the whole government-run boarding school system—a system that my own grandmother and my aunties went through as well—where the professed model was to kill the Indian and save the man. For so many decades and generations, this idea of going off to school meant losing your Native culture. It meant that part of you was forcibly erased. You weren’t allowed to speak your language. You weren’t allowed to practice your culture. That is a legacy that occurred up until the 1960s and ’70s, so this isn’t ancient history…[we are re-framing] this idea—going to college is not about losing your identity as a Native person. It’s a way for you to give back to your community. It’s a way for you to build up your nation. It’s a way for to gain the skills and knowledge that your nation needs."

An entire Gaza neighborhood is decimated within an hour by Israeli air strikes. The video is further proof that Israel has no regard for the life of innocent Palestinians.
Israel attacked Gaza’s only power plant on Tuesday, leaving the Palestinian territory’s 1.8 million residents with no electricity or running water and opened the possibility of an even graver humanitarian crisis.
After three weeks of violence between Israel and Gaza, more than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli air and ground strikes. About 75 percent of Palestinian deaths have been civilians. Several thousand have been wounded and more than 100,000 displaced. Fifty-three Israeli soldiers have died, as well as three civilians.
Just look at the casualties. This is not a war, it is genocide.
Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.
