In his own words: "I'm an engaged citizen, a writer, a critical media studies researcher, a partner, a future-dad, a photographer/videographer, and as often as possible, a world traveler. I've written about everything from presidential politics to a dusty old pair of shoes. My writing, video, and/or photography has been published in The Huffington Post, Revolution News, Backpacker Magazine, and The Rocky Mountain Collegian." (unaffiliatedgadfly.blogspot.co.at)
Propagates the white-privilege myth, quote: "Owning up to and acknowledging the inherited benefits of whiteness, and encouraging other white people to do so as well, is an integral aspect of working toward racial justice in white spaces."
Quote: "The primary question for white anti-racists then, should ask how we can accelerate the break up of white supremacy, rather than what type of whiteness should come next—or if we can rid ourselves of whiteness altogether."
Propagated the concept of white-guilt, quote: "White wounding means dedicating yourself to bearing witness to and learning about racial inequality and oppression, opening the door to understanding these issues in ways white comfort and privilege generally shield from our view. Understanding the context, history, and some of the calls to action being made to address these issues is a vital component of white wounding."
Justified the use of violence: "Violent resistance matters. Riots can lead to major change [...] it was the LA Uprising, not the LA Protests, that led to significant changes in the Los Angeles Police Department."
Promoted violence against Trump supporters, quote: "In the face of media, politicians, and GOP primary voters normalizing Trump as a presidential candidate—whatever your personal beliefs regarding violent resistance—there’s an inherent value in forestalling Trump’s normalization. Violent resistance accomplishes this."
