@emsenn In before someone accuses you of equivocating the "good" and "bad" white people.
@nothingwindsky Honestly it's been a long time since I've had an interaction like that, most unfavorable interaction recently has been from over-excitable leftists who can't read outside their colonial viewpoints so hear me criticizing cities and think I'm advocating genocide.
And I just take that as "I'm new to talking about these ideas so doing so poorly, thanks for the feedback."
@emsenn Whiteness comes with a protection policy, yeah. It desperately wants to uphold its longevity, that is, the ascendancy of its mainstream structures. A decolonial critique of cities can stand on its own. But white people manifest a tendency to assume the worst, perhaps out of fear that the hegemony—with the urban areas it has built—will weaken.
@MoMartin ahahaa that was perfect
@emsenn Sometimes, it's good to be self aware of how whiteness makes me ridiculous.
