Why White Activists Should Stop Wearing Masks at Protests

From Medium - By Nico Quintana, transgender latinx activist and law student

Since the inauguration of President Trump, more and more progressive, white activists are wearing masks at protests and engaging in black bloc tactics, which has left me asking, why? I want to know why so many white progressives are not showing their faces at protests and why they think black bloc tactics are appropriate to support the current political movements.

Many articles from different people about Rojava have expressed different views. The vast majority of them have covered the positive and bright sides of this experiment. I too have written many articles, in both Kurdish and English. In addition, I have given many interviews to Kurdish and non-Kurdish media. I have attended and addressed several meetings, both in the UK and abroad. I travelled once to Rojava and twice to Bakur (the Kurdistan part of Turkey).

From The Brilliant

This is one of the first episodes where B & A! seriously disagree. Probably there is just some sort of misunderstanding or perhaps race is something we are not capable of seeing eye to eye on. Entertaining listen though. Totally separately than this is a discussion about an article from the newest Black Seed by Gerald Vizenor.

Statement from a Comrade and Baltimore Native About the Uprising There

There is something very important happening not only in Baltimore, but across black America. As of now there have been no reported deaths at the hands of protesters in a city where 250 people are killed a year, nearly all of those homicide victims being black. In spite of the fires and the looting, the young people of Baltimore are still showing a greater restraint in their conflicts with police and store-owners than they have shown in their conflicts amongst each other. I say this because for years it has been my family too that has done some of the killing and much of the dying.

Neither Liberal Nor Reactionary: Throwing Down for Racial Justice

In engagement with the black power movement and the current spotlight on race relations in America, we call on white radicals to take direct action in the fight against white supremacy and police violence. The actions that have taken place since the murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson have shown a strong anti-authoritarian tendency nationwide, and reflect the larger sense of a rupture in the traditional acceptance of police and state power.
