From Rev. Jim Bear Jacobs, re-posted from Facebook (9/10/2021).
Before you post that #neverforget sentiment tomorrow, ask yourself; in the last 20 years have I told any Black or Indigenous person that they need to “get over it” “move on” “forgive and forget” when they posted about historical trauma? I know for a fact that some of you have. You no longer get to choose what is preserved as collective memory.
One thought on “Collective Memory”
Never. Those are some of the cruelest words we can say in response to personal and historical trauma.
