I think in light of 12 Years a Slave winning the Oscar for Best Picture, this needs to be remembered. Because it is a very important point in terms of the palatability of 12 Years a Slave and why Fruitvale Station didn’t even get nominated when it has such acclaim outside of the Oscar world.
"A revolutionary woman can’t have no reactionary man. If he’s not about liberation, if he’s not about struggle, if he ain’t about building a strong Black family, if he ain’t about building a strong Black nation, then he ain’t about nothing."
What I hate the most about gentrification is the message that it sends. It’s not until a neighborhood is going through gentrification (PoC out, White people in) that it is worthy of health food stores, better security, and other infrastructures that promotes living well.
