Racialized violence. 

Believe it or not, Palestinians are having to sit here in the diaspora and listen to people say things like "no context as usual" and "we don't know what started it" about a video showing violence and desecration of Palestinian bodies- dead and alive.

Racialized violence. 

Yeah. Same bullshit as when there's yet another incident of police hurting black people in the US -- as if there were ANY context that would justify the things we see happen.

But people get rowdy at a protest in a handful of incidents with 20 million people involved, and suddenly it's all about those violent black "riots". 🤬
