QAnon is an awful, harmful conspiracy theory, but let me tell you about why it's actually just an offshoot of the far more harmful, well-ingrained mythology dominant in #USA: White supremacist American Exceptionalism & Manifest Destiny

We are regularly fed this myth that English religious dissenters fled persecution & founded colonies in North America, and, in a process which deliberately obscures the ambitions of the British Empire, the violence visited upon the First Nations of #TurtleIsland & chattel slavery

(THREAD) When my son was in Gr 10 he brough home, To Kill a Mockingbird. I was angry -my child, was reading a text of a past romanticized by some, even tho it was riddled with #racism. I wondered how many texts he would read that looked like him. But he had to read that- why?
I had asked many times for a reading list of books theyd have in their English class. I asked if the texts looked like them, reflected their experiences bc #IdentityMatters. I never could get an answer. Replies included, it was a #Classic but y'all know #Classics aint #Neutral
Of course, the response when we have these convos - "Y'all want to Censor...". Funny how "#freeSpeech" and "#censorship" always come up when issues of #equity are being discussed. That our children shouldn't be exposed to #racism and #trauma they live EVERY. SINGLE. DAY
