Theft of Black Labor
When we say “decolonize,” one of the things we mean is to abolish the mindframe which insists that some people may take and own whatever they want to take and own from a class of people who’ve been deemed lesser.
Colonists aren’t merely a thing of previous centuries—gentrifiers, for instance, practice a form of colonialism. So do predatory lenders and frat boys in blackface.
And so do administrators, managers, and marketers (etc.) when they decline to acknowledge their appropriation of the creative work of Black people—especially when the appropriation is meant as a form of homage.
