Organizing spaces have been some of the most unsafe, triggering and detrimental spaces I’ve been in. The rise of the fake deep hotep who dominates space, coupled with overeager radicals who don’t question the proliferation of hotepery in the space, leads to misogyny, transphobia, homophobia and hate running rampant among the very same groups of people who attempt to “get us free.”

You can’t liberate others until you work on liberating yourself.
