a note about identifying editorial racism & me

not too long ago, in response to kenneth goldsmith’s debacle at brown university, i wrote that I will radically disidentify with preexisting infrastructures designed to smudge me out. and that as wraith, as hupia, as ice, shapeshift, sibilant and reptilian I will be the nothing white writers find everywhere. i have taken one step closer to succeeding in this regard. No white person or institution will ever silence me. yes, i may be no one, but that has become my strength–for i have nothing to lose.

keep dragging my name. i hope the echo of it haunts you.
