It is an uphill battle as a Black educator that has to deal with often white administrations and the frustrations of students. We have to do it anyway. Our youth deserve more and we damn sure must do all that is in our power to give it to them through quality education of our Black radical tradition. . . .
The poor, queer, Black, disabled masses have no allies in the white power structure, even if the powerful is ‘melanated.’ All these foxes do is work to convince us that our only hope is to remain subject to the very system that violates us and our cousins overseas. But, there is no savior within the Amerikkkan Empire. We alone are our magic hands, as Fanon once said, and so it is on us to protect ourselves, by ourselves, for ourselves and for our planet. . . .
