“I’ve said this previously, but I personally don’t believe we can assume that just because individuals share marginalized identities with us, they necessarily share our ideals or ideologies. Thus, we should choose accomplices based on their sustained actions rather than whatever constructed identities they occupy, which they can often use as shields to protect them from critical evaluations of their roles in upholding the status quo, acting in concert with the the ruling powers, and their true objective: switching places the oppressors rather than abolishing oppression. These individuals often claim to eschew “identity politics,” but fail miserably to understand that they are not abandoning identities or politics, but merely trading (or hoping to trade) them for those that embody greed, materialism, wealth, and abusive power.” – via Son of Baldwin
