Q T (queer t…….)

To decolonize is to love oursleves.

    Love our bodies, including our minds.

Acknowledge differences

                including struggles.

    we all have different struggles

The structures of Heteropatriarchy and

        White supremacy will continue to

                            seek to divide us.

              Try to imprison us.

       Try to make us hate ourselves.

Our bodies have sent us to War.

Our bodies are used as symbols of hierarchies.

       We have been left with the work

        to dismantle institutional hierarchies

To remove Power from these structures that organize our daily lives and create a world with no Nation-states,

                But allow the Borderlands to exist

                                                          within us

                                                                                                   (o)

About UCSC Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES)

This blog is maintained by students throughout UCSC. We recognize that students have been working around Ethnic Studies for multiple decades and at many levels of the university. We claim no ownership over any movement or material that is produced. We ask that any materiel used from the blog is cited and used for only educational purposes. Most importantly that it is done with honor and respect for the many people who worked in the struggle for Ethnic Studies. We would also like to point out that the name Critical Race and Ethnic Studies (CRES) was created to acknowledge the intellectual development of Ethnic Studies since the beginning of this struggle. The name came from countless meetings and hours with many different undergrads, graduate students, and faculty.
