Update: I keep writing updates then deleting them. We are OK. We are still here!

The Future is Disabled –  Alice Wong Link.


‘We are ghosts’ Race, Class and Institutional Prejudice’ D. Snoussi, L. Mompelat. Quote: “A combination of government-imposed austerity and the hostile environment that led to the Windrush scandal is forging shared conditions across working-class, minority ethnic and migrant communities.” Runnymede and Centre for Labour and Social Studies. Link.


‘What would health security look like?’ – Sunaura Tayor writing in the Boston Review: “The conditions that make someone more vulnerable to COVID-19 are of course intimately tied up with poverty, environmental racism, and inadequate health care. Thus while such a sentiment is unabashedly ableist—should we mourn the lives of the healthy and robust more than the lives of the ill and disabled?—it is also deeply racialized, a message to America’s white middle class that they have no need to panic. ” Link.
