When They Call You a Terrorist Read & Download ☆ 9 Wie viel ein schwarzes Leben zählt Black Lives Matter ist die neue große Bürgerrechtsbewegung in Amerika Als im Sommer 2013 der Feuerwehrmann George Zimmerman freigesprochen wurde der den 17 jährigen schwarzen Schüler Trayvon Martin erschossen hatte entstand unter dem Hashtag #BlackLivesMatter die neue Bürgerrechtsbewegung Jetzt erzählt die Mitbegründerin ihre GeschichteIn diesem Buch erzählt Patrisse Khan Cullors von einer Kindheit in Angst und Armut Und sie schildert auf bewegende Weise wie sie sich dank Literatur und Kunst aus der H. A heartbreaking read I was expecting the whole book to be about the immediate genesis of blacklivesmatter but it is really a true memoir in the sense that it gives Khan Cullors life story and how the horrors that befell her family and community led to this work It opened my eyes and while I used to consider myself fairly knowledgeable on this topic this book humbled me and reminded me I do NOT really know It also taught me just how diverse the movement is with a large percentage of the founding activists being ueer and non gender conformingAs a white cis reader I will not attempt to actually review this work beyond saying that it provided an education I very very much needed Reuired reading for all Thanks to St Martin s Press for the review copy of this title all opinions are my own

When They Call You a Terrorist Read & Download ☆ 9 Offnungslosigkeit befreien konnte und welche Verpflichtungen zu einem Engagement für Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit daraus erwachsen sind – in einem Amerika dessen Minderheiten immer stärker unter Druck geratenJe lauter diese neue Bürgerrechtsbewegung ihre Rechte einfordert desto kritischer wird sie betrachtet Im Jahr 2016 bezeichnen Politiker und konservative Medien die Mitglieder von Black Lives Matter erstmals als Terroristen Genauso wie Angela Davis vor 50 Jahren von Präsident Nixon genannt wurde Aber sie sind keine Terroristen sie sind ?. Rage Against Poverty and PoliceRacial hatred is the root evil of society It is the emblem and model for all other kinds of prejudice and exclusion Its core is in language which is used to degrade and ostracise Where it exists it poisons society against itself When it is tolerated it dominates the life of society When such tolerance is rationalised as a matter of personal right or necessary for social stability any attempt to eliminate it is perceived as an act of terrorism This is the capstone the Trump card one might say of the inherently racial society And it deserves to be raged atPatrisse Khan Cullors started Black Lives Matter The poetic force of rage in the phrase alone is enough to get her designated a terrorist in American society It points directly to how language is used as the primary means of oppression Angela Davis s introduction makes the essential point No white supremacist purveyor of violence has ever to my knowledge been labeled a terrorist by the state But three poor non white women who refuse to be crushed by that society are just for the phrase aloneThere is no uestion but that the law enforcement in the United States has been explicitly designed to subjugate black people Khan Cullors uotes John Ehrlichmann Nixon s Head of Domestic policy We knew we couldn t make it illegal to be black but by getting the public to associate the blacks with heroin and then criminalizing them heavily we could disrupt their communities Did we know we were lying Of course we did This linguistic strategy has become an integral part of American culture virtually a theological principle a God gone astray in the flesh as Paul Valery called this sort of linguistic abuseNixon turned regional racial prejudice into a national political force He injected the virus of racial hatred that had thrived in the former slaves states into the body of the entire country He did it or less openly not through the courts which had been constrained by legislation but through the police which became the tools of what other writers have called the New Jim Crow a regime of barely legalised persecution including unwarranted and unjustifiable death Crucially he defused the rage he made it suspectNixon s political genius has stood the test of time He knew his audience He successfully alienated black America from the rest of society and neutralised its political power The fabric of communities was systematically destroyed and with that their threatened electoral importance The system of marginalisation worked even better than it had during the period of Reconstruction after the Civil War because it could be carried out under the headline of Crime Reduction the ideal rationalisation for a racism that no longer needed to justify itself Justice had become the dialectical opposite of Law Order Racial hatred is the central political and sociological fact in America Race is not a sideshow it is and always has been the main event Nixon and his successors have provided political excuses and distractions in order to ignore race Black Lives Matter makes that less possible by bringing back the rage which is the only ethical response appropriate to the situation

When They Call You a Terrorist Read & Download ☆ 9 ?berlebende wie die Künstlerin und Aktivistin Patrisse Khan Cullors in ihrem Buch schreibtWie viele Schwarze in den USA blickt sie auf eine Familiengeschichte zurück die von Demütigungen und Ausweglosigkeit geprägt ist Sie wächst während der Reagan Jahre in einem Getto von Los Angeles auf – immer wieder stürmen Polizisten die Wohnung und suchen nach Drogen und Verdächtigen während sie und ihre Geschwister stocksteif vor Angst auf dem Sofa sitzen Im Alter von zwölf Jahren wird sie zum ersten Mal festgenommen und ins Gefängnis gebrac. So I want to start this review by saying how much I appreciate the incredible dedication Patrisse Khan Cullors and asha bandele have to black people both in and outside of this country I had the pleasure of hearing Khan Cullors speak back in my freshman year of college and so when I found out she was releasing a memoir it was uickly added to my TBRWhen They Call You a Terrorist is an incredibly brave book filled with deeply personal experiences I m sure took years to process Nowadays people often talk about doing the therapeutic work they need to thrive in this world as well as the movement work that helps ensure others can do the same In this memoir it is clear that Khan Cullors has done both probing her life s challenges heartbreaks and joys for their greater purpose and for her greater calling BLM activism This dual work allows Khan Cullors to seamlessly travel between her personal experiences and systemic issues in a way that made this memoir seem like her own story but also so much than just that For example she ll begin with an anecdote about her her harsh punishment in a local school and then extend it to the educational plights of black girls across the country referencing books like Moniue Morris Pushout The Criminalization of Black Girls in Schools Though she has a formal acknowledgments section I felt like this whole book was an extended one she is always citing her intellectual and political sources as well as her emotional support systems throughout different stages of her life I was most moved by seeing all the ways she learned to not just care for others but to be cared for and supported by her chosen family members With that said I didn t really find this book to be a great start to my challenge for Pride month I ve always been inspired and encouraged to know all of the founders of Black Lives Matter are black ueer women and so I expected a BUNCH from her memoir where sexuality is concerned To be so very reflective in many other places I felt like her discussion of sexual identity was pretty lukewarm she constantly mentions how many of her co organizers are ueer but she rarely delves into their experiences of oppression with eual energy To be honest I was really shocked to find that the romantic relationship she most passionately and extensively describes is her marriage to a cishet man I understand that this is a memoir and she can t change her life story but it just felt a bit disjointed since her current marriage to a genderueer activist from Canada gets much less attention I found this cishet male centrism in many other places in the memoir and I think a couple of times it really felt like she was becoming an apologist for some inexcusable behavior When discussing her brother s struggles with mental illness she casually mentions how it caused him to become abusive towards his girlfriend and child once destroying many objects in the woman s home in a fit of rage but doesn t really focus on the wrong in his actions She takes a lot of care to explain to us that her brother Monte is led to such actions because of very traumatic and unjust violence inflicted upon him while incarcerated but I think she doesn t account for the fact that he still harmed people even while being a victim himself There are many other places where it seems like she s once again overlooking toxic masculinity and the pain it causes black women in order to show sympathy for black men calling the cops is a worse option than getting your ass kicked Due to Khan Cullors extensive work on behalf of black women and ueer folks it was just really strange to feel this memoir prioritizing black cishet men in this wayOne of the biggest internal critiues of BLM is how the movement has been co opted away from its feminist origins Many times I don t think Khan Cullors addresses the ways in which the predominantly cishet men she organizes this book around don t necessarily return the favor While still incredibly powerful I don t feel that her story really embraced the complexities and harm black organizers who are also ueer or female or gender non conforming etc experience within their own activist circles I would ve loved to hear about what she had to say about these issues but sadly I didn t this time around I want to end by focusing on some other BLM activists who are releasing memoirs soon One thing I appreciate about the current black literary scene is that than one activist s story can be published so we have than one opportunity to delve into these topics Darnell Moore s No Ashes in the Fire Coming of Age Black and Free in America came out earlier this week and Charlene Carruthers Unapologetic A Black ueer and Feminist Mandate for Our Movement drops in August so maybe they ll pick up where Khan Cullors and bandele left off
