The Rage of the Privileged vs The Rage of the Oppressed

The rage of the privileged will never surmount to the rage of the oppressed. As much as it convinces itself it does. As much as it portrays itself to be. As much as it self-victimizes it self in pursuit of.

Here’s why:

The rage of the privileged thrives off of the false idea that they are exempt from wrong-doings and not responsible when committing injustice.

The rage of the privileged gives excuses and self-proclaimed righteousness in the murder and victimization of the oppressed.

The rage of the privileged holds self-legitimization and “we are the real victim” discourse as a reason to commit treason and acts of barbarianism against indigenous bodies and treaty lands.

The rage of the privileged is the outcome of settler children being raised completely and utterly by colonialism in the cobweb of confusion that makes up their systems.

The rage of the privileged carries generations of guiltless blood on their hands and hundreds of years of slaughter all in the name of “safety, protection, and freedom.”

The rage of the privileged is little white boys and girls being told since infancy that they are better than society, more than the land, and above karmic and spiritual law when they commit wrongdoings against others.

The rage of the privileged is a system on the brink of collapse forcibly by the rage of the oppressed.

Because the truth is, the rage of the privileged will never surmount to the rage of the oppressed.

The rage of the oppressed thrives off of the reality that we are responsible for bringing justice to injustice and truth to falsities.

The rage of the oppressed whole-heartedly resists and battles against those who committed wrong-doings, murder, and victimization on our own.

The rage of the oppressed maintains accountability and can completely discredit the settler’s “we are the real victim” discourse, therefore resisting all acts of treason and barbarianism against indigenous bodies and treaty lands.

The rage of the oppressed is the outcome of indigenous children being surrounded completely and utterly by colonialism in the cobweb of confusion that makes up settler systems and knowing who they are and where they come from amongst it all.

The rage of the oppressed carries retaliations against the generations of genocide on their lands and hundreds of years of slaughter all in the name of colonially created “safety, protection, and freedom.”

The rage of the oppressed is indigenous children being told by the privileged, since infancy, that they are less than society, less than the land, and below karmic and spiritual law when they commit wrongdoings against others by. And still standing up against it. Day in, and day out.

But the truth of it all?

The rage of the oppressed stems from the love for the people and the cause and because of this the rage of the oppressed will always be stronger than the rage of the privileged.

The rage of the oppressed knows that it is a rage founded and grounded on stories of the land and made of deep familial lineages.

The rage of the oppressed can start a bloody revolution, but instead it waits, and chooses to raise children with the intelligence and confidence of indigenous nationhood and liberation.

The rage of the oppressed knows that they can choose to no longer being oppressed simply by dissolving the story from the privileged in their own lives and existence.

Indigenous peoples know their stories of oppression, our children know our stories of victimization, the lands on which we live, play, and grow on know the stories of genocide, yet the thing that can destroy all of these stories and more

Is the love we have for our people, the liberation we crave for our communities, and the nationhood we need for our survival.

The rage of the privileged will never surmount to the rage of the oppressed because the rage of the oppressed can completely, utterly, and ultimately discredit and destroy a story that was never our own to begin with:

The story of being oppressed.
