transnational blackness

syeda:

how is the racial or political category of Black utilized in the UK?

Does it also include different ethnic and mixed backgrounds? Is there a history of, for example, South Asians identifying as black? What about the Irish?

Anyone have info or experiences on this IDK nafisa nokiabae

I’d ask my family in the UK but I haven’t spoken to them in a couple of years due to family politics, in typical desi fashion 

The first time I’d ever seen Black to include Asians (typically referring to South Asian) was when I heard about these politicized groups:

http://www.southallblacksisters.org.uk/ and the London Black Revolutionaries but I can’t seem to find anything about them online

Hope that helps xx

'Am I Next?' campaign urges Harper for inquiry into murdered native women

the “don’t shoot” slogan and “am i next” are saying the same thing. the common denominator between the victims of these crimes is skin color and that isn’t a coincidence—it’s saying that any black male or aboriginal woman could be next. stop pretending that institutionalized racism doesn’t exist in canada
