With the way this thread went, it's obvious that equality means listening. We don't need to fucking oppress each other. That's not going to get us anywhere.
Original comment: Maybe white people could try an approach that isn't punitive or ascetic in nature in order to understand? That religious shit is just keeping people small.
Not necessarily asking this from anyone else right now, especially given the history of the U.S., but I do feel that continuing the "you do harm, so get isolated / go to jail / get fucked up" mentality is just perpetuating the same bullshit.
