Today I pray for Paris, but I also wonder...
"Change your profile picture to support France and the people of Paris." But I'm just wondering why Facebook provides filters for some tragedies and not others?
"This is not just an attack on France - it is an attack on humanity!" But I'm just wondering why the attacks on PoC are never attacks on humanity? What does this say about who is seen as non-human?
"We are all France" but I'm just wondering why we are never all Lebanon, or Palestine, or any non predominantly white land?
Mourning for the dead in Paris will not stop me from questioning which dead bodies are made the most visible and which tragedies are prioritized.
