i’ve been making this point for a while now too
esp. in regards to Asians who like to maintain the east/west framework for analysing shit, not realizing just how much they are buying into white supremacy.
the line between asia and europe is, quite literally, arbitrarily drawn to keep all the poc out and maintain the fiction of a white europe.
basis your analysis using this framework isn’t about jargon or whatever
it is about actually understanding how fundamentally white supremacy has organized the world to centre it.
it is also why, no place on earth can claim to be beyond ‘western’ politics, as some Asians like to argue.
you use this map? you are not only accepting western politics, but you are accepting the power of white supremacy to structure how you perceive the world.
this is also what i mean when i say that white supremacy is global…
it literally informs how we perceive and understand the earth. it isn’t by accident that we are still using an inaccurate map drawn at pretty much the birth of colonialism and white supremacy.
about five fucking hundred years old.
basing your analysis on this means your theories are grounded in lies. and, thus, bullshit.

WATCH this guy sing “Let it Go” as a bunch of Pixar and Disney characters
If nothing else, it’ll probably get him a lot of voiceover work, cuz he’s pretty good.
