Cartography - Black feminism
"In its cruel and overwhelming arrogance, the extermination of the African descendants leaves its marks on the sterilization of poor black women, on the sexual exploitation of our children, on the involvement of black children and young men with drug trafficking, on the way that black families break apart pressed by poverty, misery, and the lack of horizons."
Abdias Nascimento's speech on the Senate floor on April 3, 1997.
Women, Race, and Class - Angela Davis
"The left-wing organizations have argued according to a Marxist and the Orthodox vision that class is the most important thing. Evidently class is important. We need to understand that class tells the race. But race also tells the class. And gender tells the class. Race is the way how class is lived. Likewise, gender is how race is lived. We need to think deeply so as to notice the intersections between race, class, and gender in order to perceive that, between these categories, there are relations that are mutual and others that are crossed. Nobody can take precedence of a category over the others."
Angela Davis, 2016
Cartography - Genocide of the Brazilian black person
“Quantitative researches denounce that, when it is about an Afro-Brazilian involved in something unlawful, the Police is persecutional and voracious to fulfill its mission, the Legal Aid Services, not rarely, wanders on the boundaries of bureaucracy and Justice in its full blindness and advances without limits until the highest degree of partiality.”
Abdias Nascimento's speech on the Senate floor on July 3, 1997.
"The Brazilian police force is the one that kills the most in the world, according to Amnesty International's report. Here the nation outlines the most perverse side of institutional racism: the violent killing of a young black man by the State forces."
