#Intent vs. #Impact

A wise person taught me that prioritizing #intent over #impact is a characteristic of #whitesupremacyculture.

It allows those w/ privileged identities to center themselves &
their intent while dismissing the impact on those who are marginalized.
Good article that discusses this phenomenon more in depth: everydayfeminism.com/2013/07/intent…
“I cannot tell you how often I’ve seen people attempt to deflect criticism about their oppressive language or actions by making the conversation about their intent.

At what point does the “intent” conversation stop mattering so that we can step back and look at impact?”/3

Day 2 #Gambia v #Myanmar #ICJ begins, w/#ASSK up first. She declares #genocide is a crime, applied by #ICTR to #Rwanda but not to #Kosovo or #Croatia by #ICTY or #ICJ, because of a lack of dolus specialis.
Gambia has put fwd 'Incomplete & misleading factual picture'. Situation in #Rahkine is 'complex & not easy to fathom'. (same rhetoric as we have heard for years)
Complexities go back for yrs. Claims conflict btwn Arakan Army w/5000 fighters & the #Myanmar Army, w/Arakan Army seeking independence. The conflict has led to displacement & security measures such as curfew & checkpoints, applied to all regardless of background.

-A interview of a antisemitisem scientist-

"In polls, many #Germans are annoyed by the thematization of the #Holocaust: One third is annoyed that the crimes committed against the #Jews are still held up today. And 41 percent think that #Jews talk about it too often ..."
The feeling of being held up is apparently present in many, they feel attacked. It is quite paradoxical: Although in surveys almost 90 percent say that belonging to #Germany is the knowledge of the history of National Socialism. Nevertheless, especially the #youth find today:
My #grandfather was already no longer involved, at some point is also good times. Interestingly, this is not just a #German phenomenon, but in the whole of #Europe, such as in #Poland and #Hungary, but also in #Spain or the #UnitedKingdom.

Words ‘deleted’ by the Oxford Junior Dictionary in 2015 as irrelevant to modern childhood: acorn, bluebell, conker, dandelion, fern, heather, heron, lark, nectar, otter, pasture, willow.

What we cannot name we will forget.

#intent #curriculum #vocabulary
Words ‘added’ by the Oxford Junior Dictionary in 2015 as relevant to modern childhood: attachment, blog, broadband, bullet-point, celebrity, chatroom, committee, cut and paste, voicemail.

Language is the protein of imagination. With this diet, imagination will fail.
I completely missed this in 2015, or was too distracted to notice. With thanks to Timothy Radcliffe OP for covering it (and so much else) in his new book. Cultural impoverishment is happening right in front of us and teachers are on the front line of the resistance.

Beneath a pristine manor house sprawling #tunnels echo birth pains of Resistance. A nursemaid stands watch by the makeshift HQ station... now explosions rumble overhead. She knows little of their plans but this new blind servitude could pay higher dividends than the last. #vss365
Hank approaches Derringer Manor where #precious Betsy works. 1 more kiss before he ships out— she’ll see him in uniform.

Whistling screams overhead. Shattering impact. The house coughs fire, smoke, & people: cockroaches fleeing in all directions. But no Betsy.
#Satsplat #vss365
Lights flicker in the tunnel as the rumbling above is swallowed by a great crash. Officers scramble to collect documents & Betsy dives to the ground, gripping the silver locket swaying from her neck. An eternity of screams in the ceiling,then 1 voice nearby—her dear #boy.

Glad to be part of this convo! Need to define terms to begin:
Here are a few helpful ways I think of #racism:
Racism = Prejudice + Power to impact the lives and futures of the “other”. #LiberatingEvangelicalism 1/
Racism = the implementation of structural, systemic, legal and/or political hierarchy of human belonging based on arbitrary physical features. #LiberatingEvangelicalism 2/
Racism = the #racialization of society’s systems and structures by #intent OR by #impact. 3/#LiberatingEvangelicalism

Y'day Trump tried to squirm out of his kiss-up to Kim by saying media misinterpreted him about Otto Warmbier. Today he uses misinterpretation again to claim "Russia-if-you're-listening" was a joke. This weaponization of ambiguity is key to #Trump's #propaganda #language. @ddale8
@ddale8 Reupping my old piece on some features of Trump's propaganda language, including strategic use of ambiguity ("misinterpreted"). It's disarming b/c he does it so brazenly. His "authenticity" is shamelessness in vernacular. Neither this nor Russia is a joke. euromaidanpress.com/2016/10/27/989…
Days after Wikileaks’ dump, Trump was impressed & wanted more. Listen to his breathy “everything” immediately before the ask—not a joke—to Russia: “how little respect…that they would hack a major party & get everything. It would be interesting to see…RUSSIA IF YOU’RE LISTENING”

Forgive the type-o's but as livid and upset as I am, I didn't bother to proofread the DM! I had every reason in the world to believe this nightmare was on the cusp of ending 2 years ago and a lot of prominent people helped me come to that conclusions!

The #legitimacy of any form of #government is not and cannot be based upon #consent, but upon how well it protects the rights of those who refuse to consent.
When the bullshit is stripped away, #Socialism is #theft, and can never be a moral form of political economy, because it cannot protect the rights of those who refuse to consent to the theft of their earned wealth. Those who do consent are not prevented under any other system…
from engaging in #voluntary #cooperative #ownership of #capital. Therefore, #Socialism is not defined by voluntary participation, but by #coercion, or #theft, a universal #moral harm. #Intent is not #magic. Good intent and good works do not and cannot excuse the theft.

I've never asked for anything. No go fund me, patreon account, etc, but I will be putting together, w/email examples of help I did get yesterday, acknowleged by the co, as my evidence that procured their action in my favor. That same evidence & more w/urgent plea was ignored >
by the State of Minnesota ...& I am up at 2:30 am., cuz I can't shut my mind off, because the additional assistance I sought, is a direct result of State of Minnesota bad actors in positions of authority, & their accomplices tied 2 those who hurt my family, under the Obama regime
and Andrew Luger @DMNnews. This was Minnesota's last chance to redeem themselves under a new @POTUS. ...and there's still 2 issues I need help with. I need to be more awake 1st.😪
