No, fuck you colonialism.
Man, I'm taking a course about colonialism right now and it makes me stabby in ways I have previously repressed. The superiority complex of colonists and their degradation of so-called "naive" or "uncivilized" peoples just drives me mad. I almost don't have the stomach to sit through some of the videos.

The worst thing is the fact that some of these racist attitudes still exist today. The idea of "inferior races" is one such example. Bitches, don't you understand that race is a societal construct? Genetic variation is higher between members of one "race" than between members of "different races." Genetically, and on an even smaller scale chemically, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS RACE. So shut the fuck up! There are no "species" of human beings. Human beings can all interbreed and thus are all members of THE SAME SPECIES. How freaking stupid must one be to think otherwise? Is it just poor education? How can this bullshit be eradicated?

ughh I'm just disgusted at all of this.

um, no. It's just that the class highlights the very worst of colonialism. And it's something I don't always talk about.

Hm, I hope this isn't the reason why you're closing your LJ. It was only a joke.
