"It wasn't our birth into this world, but our exit." Powerful!
John Otrompke
32:11
I have to disagree in part; I and many others are innocent
Sean Hill
36:44
I was commenting on the inherent restrictions placed on Black folks, within a system founded upon our "thingification," our non-personhood. Was your comment a response to this, John? Curious about innocence in this context
John Otrompke
37:22
Nope; it was about a brief, earlier comment by Prof. Farley
John Otrompke
37:38
Unrelated to your comment, actually
Sean Hill
37:45
Ahhh, gotcha!
Saru Matambanadzo
40:05
Abundance has been my go to concept in so many spaces - particularly with business types
Mona Washington
42:29
Overage time well spent and valuable!
John Otrompke
42:43
Yes, thank you!
Sean Hill
56:04
Wholly unaware of these institutional elements in relation to Garner!
John Otrompke
56:14
Me too!
ATHENA MUTUA
56:58
also relates to legalized looting v. the taking of 12 inch tv
John Otrompke
01:00:54
Thank you!
ATHENA MUTUA
01:00:59
not at all. agree
Nīa Knighton
01:01:13
That’s a good point
Catherine Grosso
01:02:54
Try selecting a different screen when you share.
Aya Gruber
01:04:31
Stewart, any chance you would share the ppt?
Stewart Chang
01:05:25
@Sean - another institutional element in Eric Garner’s case was the return of Bill Bratton as police commissioner and his brand of broken windows policing
Sean Hill
01:06:59
Yes, and appointed by alleged "progressive" Bill deBlasio at that, who ran on a platform of police accountability!
Stewart Chang
01:29:09
Probably a book Muhammad’s Condemnation of Blackness
Steven Bender
01:31:41
Interested on thoughts on who is/are the “police?’ I’m in Portland that has been “burning for decades.” The big news this morning is the police killing of the suspect who shot the Patriot Prayer leader a week ago. Usually police kill “cop killers” when they confront them, and this is the latest compelling evidence that the police and the Trump-supporting “patriot” “prayer boys” are indeed one allied force—police treated the suspect like a “cop killer.” But does “police” also include the store owners, the property owners, the “undead,” all of us? Who are the “police” in these conversations?
Emile Loza de Siles
01:31:45
@Athena....love your view that we're may be in a "magical moment"
Desiree Goodwin
01:31:47
Does anyone have any concrete examples of what a replacement for police and the criminal justice system would look like and how it would impact perpetrators and victims?
John Otrompke
01:33:10
Vote for socialist Howie Hawkins for president!
Sean Hill
01:33:58
Desiree: Critical Resistance has great resources on that front (raising the questions we'll have to answer post-abolition). I would also suggest checking out BYP 100, and possibly the org Common Justice (which utilizes restorative justice practices)
ATHENA MUTUA
01:35:35
yes have cr stuff. i'll look back at it
Emile Loza de Siles
01:35:48
Demi Carboto, From Stopping Black People to Killing Black People....that's what I heard, @SpearIt
Aya Gruber
01:36:14
Moinica Bell has a good new article bringing together critical race geography and policing. "Anti-segregation Policing" https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=3610953
Aya Gruber
01:36:22
Monica.
Emile Loza de Siles
01:37:30
Correction: DEVON Carbado, From Stopping Black People to Killing Black People (2017), https://lawcat.berkeley.edu/record/1127963?ln=en
Emile Loza de Siles
01:44:56
Allied with the police, @Steven, e.g., 17-year-old with assault weapon in Kenosha
Steven Bender
01:45:43
Yes, sharing a water bottle like breaking bread
Emile Loza de Siles
01:47:08
@Aya | carceral state as normative for people of color
Aya Gruber
01:48:51
And some of the horrified people also take pleasure in it (trauma porn)
ATHENA MUTUA
01:49:27
what do we do about property and the "small businesses"
Sean Hill
01:50:29
I have to sign-off, but this has truly been a thought-provoking conversation. I look forward to other opportunities to engage with one another in the future.
ATHENA MUTUA
01:52:00
Bundy person came out for BLM?
Carrie Rosenbaum
01:52:45
My modest and off-the-cuff reply - redirect the conversation to what really matters as far as lives v. property, and emphasize the need for communities supporting themselves (I’m blanking on the term).
Emile Loza de Siles
01:54:05
Interesting @Anthony idea - bracketing together 2nd and 13th amendments
Desiree Goodwin
01:55:06
Thanks, panelists.
Steven Bender
01:56:33
Thanks panelists!
Emile Loza de Siles
01:57:50
Remarkable conversation, a gift, a call. Thank you, panelist, Saru, Steven & LatCrit
John Otrompke
01:58:23
Thank you all very much!
Evangeline Sarda
02:01:10
Thank you--so grateful to hear this.
Nīa Knighton
02:01:34
how can we access the recording?
ATHENA MUTUA
02:01:44
activists started with abolishing the prison.
Carrie Rosenbaum
02:01:51
Civil immigration prisons too of course
ATHENA MUTUA
02:02:04
of course!
Carrie Rosenbaum
02:02:53
And in California they fight fires for $1/day while others perish inside with COVID (San Quentin)
Steven Bender
02:03:08
Will no prisons mean the trees and rope once again become the prisons? Without addressing other systems of oppression the incentives will still be strong. But without starting somewhere all the systems will stand. A conundrum.
Michelle Bodden-White
02:03:44
Thank you for this great discussion!
John Otrompke
02:03:51
Thank you all very much!
Carrie Rosenbaum
02:03:56
Steven - yes! And thanks everyone. You are all so inspiring.
Stewart Chang
02:04:06
Thanks Sara!
ATHENA MUTUA
02:04:10
