Started Decolonial Ecology: Thinking from the Caribbean World last night. I wake up this morning and keep thinking about the pseudo-universalism of the Anthropocene. It is rich to think mostly white people are represented in environmentalism, are seen discussing ecological concepts (and mostly in quantifiable terms: as in “when will water runs out”), build arches without realizing we are slowly eradicating colonialism and slavery both from the diagnosis and the storytelling.

Maybe I think, the collapse of all that lives isn’t the fruit of all humanity. Maybe it is important critical to acknowledge it could be born the precise moment we chained people in the hull of our ships? And what does it mean today for our common eco-sophy?
