    ...How To Stay In Your Lane: Race

    Transcript (PDF) available soon. 

    Welcome to our first instalment of a new, recurring segment "Stay In Your Lane" where we rant about people, groups, places, things or what have you that won't mind their business. 

    This week we're talking to our fellow people of colour and asking ourselves what happens when good intentions are taken too far and cause disturbances in our solidarity efforts.

    Do The Kids Know? is a weekly series of discussions between community workers, Prakash and Kristen, that unpack race, media, popular culture, and politics in KKKanada (That’s Canada spelled with three K’s) from an anti-colonial perspective.
    Our goal is to bring nuance to sensationalist media as well as to uncover the ways in which white supremacy, capitalism, and colonialism is shaping our movements and behaviours.

    We are so tired of working and the capitalist working conditions that keep us so closely tethered to our labour. This week we break down the scams of labour including the classifying of different kinds of labour, wages and white supremacy, and what we consider "essential".
