“Historically and systematically oppressed people are always expected to display grace and dignity in the face of violence, terror, or state intimidation. the obligation is always placed on the oppressed to maintain civility. empathy nonviolence diplomacy and dialogue are always demanded of the victims of violence, never the perpetrators. Resistance is routinely twisted into terrorism.

The demand that the oppressed show respect to their oppressors is a fundamental tenant of hegemony. What is or isn't violence is largely a function of proximity to power and whether or not it serves the interest of the status quo, who claim that violence must be rejected in favor of non-violence, peaceful protest. The routine violence of poverty, racist policing, militarism, etc is almost never called violence.

Rest In Power George Floyd.”
