So, I'm SUPER excited that everyone is enjoying my Nakia piece that I wrote for @WearYourVoice. And in that same vein, I am so, SO excited that #BlackPanther has inspired a lot of conversations on Pan-African and revolutionary thought.
That said though, this is a gentle reminder that the Erik Killmonger/Malcolm X comparisons do not *quite* work.
I say this because boiling down Malcolm's work & critical thought to him just being "violent" & uber militant foil to a de-fanged, de-politicized, & deified MLK Jr is not only the stuff of White liberal wet dreams (DID I STUDDER), but it is also qwhite, QWHITE off & has no basis.

Pakistani Twitter, we need to talk. As some people will have noticed, a small diplomatic issue recently came up between Pakistan and the Palestinian Authority.

Many of the responses to it that I've seen on Twitter dehumanise Palestinians and this is not cool. This is a thread.
Small disclaimer: This isn't directed to the majority of Pakistanis, just those that have suddenly decided that Palestinians are now traitors and that we are ungrateful for all the "support" Pakistan has given us over the years.
Firstly, as much as I enjoyed the privilege that I received as a Palestinian in Pakistan, let's not kid ourselves regarding Pakistan's political efforts to support the cause. Words are one thing, actions another.

From childhood we’re indoctrinated with the notion that America is a Shining Light of Freedom & the President of the U.S. is the Leader of the “Free World.” #thread #FakeHistory #FakeNews
Is the U.S. a Shining Light of Freedom when millions of women are battered and huge numbers are raped every year? Is this a Shining Light to the world?? #MeToo #YesAllWomen
