After Buffalo, say ‘no more’ by William C. Anderson (on white supremacist terror, the Tops grocery store shooting, Black anarchism, and the legacy of Martin Sostre)
"During times like this, it’s important to understand that Black people’s deaths often become opportunities. After a white supremacist made an ideological statement through his attack, many will gather around the dead with exploitative intentions. Rather than stopping these crises, much like the nonprofit-industrial complex, the problem becomes a driving force for opportunists. We’ll see people push their respective lines, whether organizational, party politics, or policy responses. These rolling disasters and the gravesites they produce become a gathering place where everyone can say, 'This is why I’m right,' instead of, 'This is why everything’s wrong.' The difference between the two is the sincere observation of the failure of so much around us. "
