On Common Sense Politics

Just something that Sista Angela said that I find useful for us:

On the simplistic "Bush vocabulary" as political discourse....

"It is seductive because it appears to require no effort to understand; it is dangerous because it erases everything that really matters."

Angela Davis in Abolition Democracy (2005)

The Combahee River Collective Statement

Coming to an UBUNTU meeting near you: printouts of the groundbreaking, revolutionary and far from perfect statement by the Combahee River Collective in 1977. This is the founding document for the intersectional analyses of oppression that we develop and deconstruct and redevelop today.

Anyway...before I burst into a praise poem...this is the spot to post your thoughts about the document while and after you read. Post a comment!
