  • “Part of the main plan of imperialism... is that we will give you your history, we will write it for you, we will re-order the past...What's more truly frightening is the defacement, the mutilation, and ultimately the eradication of history in order to create... an order that is favorable to the United States” -Edward Said
Today we are sharing the beautiful work of @subversive.thread to remember the labor of Martin Luther King Jr. 
Contrary to the popular moderate white imaginary of the new construction of #MLK in contemporary society, he was a revolutionary anticapitalist, anti military and a radical. The figure of Martin Luther King has been exploited and reshaped in order to make him more digestible for those who support policing, capitalism and the liberal discourse against the #BIPOC revolt. 
As we recognize his patriarchal behavior and affiliation to a patriarchal institutions, we want to honor his key role in the fight for black justice in America.
History will erase the radicalism of MLK in order to prevent us from rising up against the horrors of capitalism and imperialism. But we must recognize who he truly was and why he was murdered. 
Black liberation is an ongoing process in racist America and all of us must play an active role in it too.
Today we honor the labor of MLK but we call to keep the fight and struggle for black liberation as a collective but also as individuals.
