    [trigger warning: heavy internalized racism/antiblackness, unchecked light skin privilege, romantic policing, parent-child conflict]

    It’s been a few months, but here we are: a new minicomic! This one’s a doozy. It’s an account of the “talk” I got when I was 15 years old about “adelantando la raza,” which means to advance/improve the race (yes, in a Eugenics-y type way). It is an alarmingly common talk to receive when you grow up in a Latinx family. My mother had the talk with me, her mother had the talk with her, her mother’s mother told her, etc. For generations (and still to this day in a more de facto as opposed to de jure sense), your race determined your social class in most of the former Spanish empire. There is even a word for gaining social status that directly equates greater class privilege with being whiter than others: “blanqueando,” becoming white. This event in my life is one I will never forget, one that triggers feeling after feeling: sorrow, empathy, rage (on my mother’s behalf), regret (for my flippant teenage response to her at the time), and confusion (around my identity). I want to tell more stories like this, stories that most folks might say “wow, that’s weird” to but that, just maybe, will reach a few others who’ll go “oh my god, this was a part of my life, too, and I’ve never seen a comic about it.” 

  5. Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged?

    You are iron.

    And you are strong.

    I hope I live long enough to see the global downfall of white supremacy.

    I think we share a goal, but I prefer to think of it in terms of the rising up and coming together of all people so we can care for eachother and our planet, rather than our own personal growth.

    I said I hope I live long enough to see the global downfall of white supremacy. I did not stutter.

    "Hydro Theory"
    Drexciya

    A highly secretive project of Detroit techno musicians James Stinson and Gerald Donald, Drexciya was a concept band based on a constructed Afro-futurist mythology. The duo’s title referred to an imagined underwater civilization inhabited by the descendants of unborn children of African women who were thrown overboard from slave ships crossing the Atlantic. Their music, released primarily on a series of EPs beginning in the early 1990s, explores a shadowy and evocative world of sonic imagery, an alternate reality of techno music in which the genre’s upbeat dancefloor roots are mercilessly deracinated by throbbing waves of dark sonic energy. Drexciya ended with Stinson’s untimely death in 2002, but Donald has continued to produce music under such names as Arpanet and Dopplereffekt.

    ok but this is life

    Essential listening. Most of the drexicya back catalog is out of print but can be found in various places around the Internet. I encourage anyone interested in Afrofuturism to check out other Detroit techno and electro artists such as Jeff Mills, Carl Craig, and the Underground Resistance crew. Above all check out Juan Atkins, who many of us know from the 80s electro classic, cybotron’s “clear”
