What is dismantled white supremacy? How the looks like? How equity plays a role to dismantle the racial capitalism?
Davin Cardenas

Super helpful breakdown!
Roxanne Robles
01:01:24
to recognize it, call it out, and do better
Hermes Padilla
01:01:37
It is important to understand it so we can dismantle it
Mel Norton
01:01:37
to dismantle them
Allison Henry
01:01:50
It is deep programming and we need to throw it out of our heads and hearts, and to see the violence.
aileen young
01:01:50
to abolish racism, white people need to be on the front lines and be willing to let of the systems that benefit them so that we can all be free
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:02:01
It is a social system that effects us all
Angela Andrews
01:02:02
white supremacy is a beast. a dying beast is a dangerous beast
Laura Hinz
01:02:20
to root it out, call it out and stamp it out
Charlotte Colantti
01:02:28
I think a lot of liberal white people decry racism but are deeply uncomfortable with acknowledging anti-blackness as a root of racist logics
Maria Zamudio
01:03:25
Because as a non-black person of color not understanding anti-black racism puts me in danger of flattening the impacts of white supremacy in the US as just racism
Maria Martinez
01:04:58
Porque todos somos importantes y debemos eduacar a nuestras jovenes para poder terminar con el mostruo de la discriminación y la supremacioa blanca
Angela Andrews

And much of this land has also been subjected to terrible environmental crimes, thinking of land in Northern AZ that was used for mining and then leaving local people sick.
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:17:44
Anti-blackness is an institu
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:18:03
Sorry for that incomplete thought
Roxanne Robles
01:18:21
I understand it to be the reparations promised to enslaved people.
Matt Gustafson
01:18:22
“reparations”
Tameeka Bennett
01:18:24
reparations for black folks
Charlotte Colantti
01:18:25
promise for emancipated slaves
Ann Elise Trafford
01:18:28
the amount given as reparations to slaves
Jordan Jace
01:18:29
was it what happened during reconstruction?
Angela Andrews
01:18:29
what we are owed.
Laura Hinz
01:18:29
That was the promise after the civil war
Allison Henry
01:18:30
Yes, the "promise" given to folks after the civil war
Michael S Goodman
01:18:30
That was land to be apportioned to the freed slaves.
Mel Norton
01:18:42
land redistribution promised during reconstruction
Hannah Recht
01:19:11
why we need reparations so urgently now
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:19:14
Promise to freed slaves to attempt to have them assimilate into society
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:23:04
Yep. The Constitution not only omitted many peoples but specifically excluded some people such as “merciless Indian savages”
Michael S Goodman
01:24:39
Native Americans weren't considered citizens until 1924.
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:28:48
And couldn’t vote until the 60s
Bobby Dalton Roy
01:30:28
Yes. The wealth is in the land.
Allison Henry
01:30:52
mobility by choice, not because you are pushed off the land
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:31:25
Many tribes who have been successful in business have been buying land back into their nations. Which has prompted some politicians to push for policies to limit the amount of land tribes can buy back

"Although indigenous lands account for less than 22 percent of the world's land area, their traditional territories are home to approximately 80 percent of the world's biodiversity." - National Geographic

nora lichtash
01:35:29
requirement to ensure large % of publicly held/tax delinquent land go to groups that ensure deep and permanent affordability
Maria Zamudio
01:38:00
yeah in SF folks who lost their homes due to redevelopment never really received restitutions for that. I know folks with certificates of priority for placement in affordable housing who from redevelopment who can’t really use it because the prices even in “affordable” housing is too expensive
Michael S Goodman
01:38:47
Housing in SF is a disastrous situation.
Laura Hinz
01:39:39
in SF Bay Area black families and others were denied housing and excluded by denying FDA loans. Housing passed down through generations.
saki
01:40:28
Shift local, state and federal budgeting
Allison Henry
01:41:25
But $8 Lattes make everything better, right? Gentrification and manifest destiny share a common narrative--the POC on the land aren't using it "right" or "productively."
saki
01:41:33
which can be done through a human rights participatory budgeting where the budgeting process gets opened up to residents to determine where money goes and even how to generate revenue
Angela Andrews
01:41:53
housing that doesn't fit the neighborhood.
Sara Kelley
01:41:56
Costa-Hawkins
Hermes Padilla
01:42:03
Gentrification happen because white people "love " culture and therefore want to steal it
Alma Blackwell
01:42:14
Tax breaks to wealthy developers
Michael S Goodman
01:42:15
\What's Costa-Hawkins?
noelle warford
01:42:23
Over-policing
Mel Norton
01:42:26
predatory investors
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:42:31
Neglecting neighborhood improvements until property goes down
Charlotte Colantti
01:42:31
Neoliberal logics that cities have adopted to up their tax base
Allison Henry
01:42:42
White neighborhoods have "character", gentrified neighborhoods didn't have "character"
Matt Gustafson
01:42:43
Studies that justify gentrification as “overall good” for working class communities
Laura Hinz
01:42:47
buy cheap, remodel and price out
Jorge Rivera
01:42:53
“Beautification” projects
Maria Martinez
01:42:59
La ciudad no tiene ninguna restriccion a los desarrolladores
Maria Zamudio
01:43:11
Narrative of “development” only way a community can be better…erasing what communities who have historically lived there have build and created
Cindy Bautista
01:43:23
“Civilized” people of color and white moving in for diversity - opportunity of development
Kayla Miranda
01:43:25
historically low income neighborhoods close to downtown become ideal property for downtown professionals and students
Charlotte Colantti
01:43:31
gentrification —> the “gentry” the property owning class
Maria Zamudio
01:43:54
also yeah that gentrification is the only way cities develop and grow…this is very much in urban planning programs in all universities - gentrification is bad but there is no other way cities grow - liberal handwringing
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:43:56
Big box shopping in outskirts and killing small neighborhood grocery stores in the older communities
Michael S Goodman
01:44:20
The Spanish word, "aburguesiamiento" says it all!
Maria Zamudio
01:45:52
^^^Yeah I’ve always loved the clarity of “aburguesamiento” the bougiefication of your neighborhood/city/region
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:46:15
+++
saki
01:46:37
beautification is used as an excuse for the need to bring in money, developers, get rid of “blight” and bring in people who can afford higher rates when there are gardens and shops and murals
saki
01:46:53
It is not in and of itself gentrification
Allison Henry
01:47:59
America also has a really messed up view of workers because of our slavery hangover. You're "lazy" if you don't work, but if you need to work for a living you are lesser. Rent seeking behavior is rewarded, but rent paying necessity is punished.
Michael S Goodman
01:49:41
By the myth that "you too" can become wealthy one day!
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)

“You have no soul” - 1492
Laura Hinz

YEP
Bobby Dalton Roy
01:51:42
Police are there to control the working class.
Allison Henry
01:52:04
Exactly. Robbing people of millions and trillions requires suits, computers, and authority/institutions.
Allison Henry
01:53:07
Make the police obsolete
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:53:23
“You are lazy” - are the words of White supremacy and Capitalist who literally stole people to do their work for them
Charlotte Colantti
01:54:18
here in Minneapolis - it is no coincidence that George Floyd was murdered in a historically-Black and rapidly gentrifying neighborhood. Across from a coffee shop selling $8 lattes. Police will murder to protect white wealth and property
bineshi/IEN/She/ Oklahoma (Indian Territory)
01:54:19
We pay for it by NOT bailing out banks, corporations and oil & gas industry
nora lichtash
01:54:27
25% philly's city budget is police and jails
Bobby Dalton Roy
01:54:35
The irony is that police are called public safety. Who the hell ever started a meeting by saying, "Let's create a safe space here. Right over there are the police."
Mel Norton
01:54:41
THANKS YA’LL! This was amazing
Roxanne Robles
