Jun 12 Word of the Day
Solarpunk is a movement focused on a positive, ecological vision for a future where technology is used for human-centric and ecocentric purposes. It is a literary, artistic and aesthetic sub-genre and is also closely tied to eco-political activism. Solarpunk narratives have a distinctly positive and utopian foundation in contrast to the often dystopian visions found within other "punk" science fiction genres.
Solarpunk is a literary movement, a hashtag, a flag, and a statement of intent about the future we hope to create.

Someone actively working to define and dismantle racism.

"What's the problem with being 'not racist'? It is a claim that signifies neutrality: 'I am not a racist but neither am I aggressively against racism.' But there is no neutrality in the racism struggle.

The opposite of 'racist' isn't 'not racist'. It is 'antiracist'.

What's the difference? One endorses either the idea of a racial hierarchy as a racist, or racial equality as an antiracist. One either believes the problems are rooted in groups of people, as a racist, or locates the roots of problems in power and policies, as an antiracist. One either allows racial inequities to persevere, as a racist, or confronts racial inequalities, as an antiracist.

There is no in-between safe space of 'not racist'. The claim of 'not racist' neutrality is a mask for racism." - Ibram X Kendi

If you have read this definition and are now confronted with the fact that you might be racist, it's okay. I was there with you only months ago. What's not okay is to have this realization and to neglect the work.

Your past does not define your future. Pick up a copy of Kendi's book "How To Be An Antiracist" and start doing this important work. I'm right there with you.
