@Leelums Yup. The speak from platforms of not only complete ignorance, but there has *never* been a concentrated effort by white Americans to deal with their history of murder, theft and pillaging.

But somehow, magically, we are supposed to look to them as authorities on how to survive changing times, as if we do not have out own stories and knowledge that have been passed down that deal with exactly that.

It's just pure delusion.

@Are0h It's refreshing to see this recognized. It drains me so much to hear constant pessimism with no proposed plans of action especially when

1) white people and the economically well-off aren't and will not be bearing the brunt of climate change issues and

2) there are tangible actions that can be taken... they just don't want to

And in the same breath many of these same people will happily blame "overpopulation" and predominantly black & brown countries for the climate problems

β€œ President Bill Clinton escalated the drug war that had been originally declared by President Richard Nixon and then escalated by Ronald Reagan. Clinton escalated the drug war beyond what many of his Republican predecessors ever dreamed. And he did so in part to prove that he could be tougher on them, the black criminals, than his Republican counterparts.”

@anne I think the trouble is that it's the straight white guy fiction that gets the most attention. Octavia E. Butler, for instance, still doesn't get the attention she deserves.

Personally, I'm on a mission to decolonise sci fi!

:girafficfullglasses: booped

@efi Indeed Le Guin was an exception, in that she was a different voice. But reading her "The Left Hand of Darkness" now is very strange - it feels like it's trying to convince of something we accepted a couple of decades ago. (Fair enough, it was written longer ago than that.) But we are fighting different battles now. And indeed her newer work is about more current issues. She was a terrible loss.

:girafficfullglasses: booped

@anne also Ann Leckie's Ancillary Justice (and sequels) and Arkady Martine's A Memory Called Empire!

:girafficfullglasses: booped

I remember the stifling white male ideas of the future - I grew up with Heinlein and Bester and Herbert and Clarke. They had interesting ideas but their viewpoint was very narrow. Even, say, John Varley's genderqueer future, even Iain M. Banks', felt imagined by a straight cis white man. Sometime in the last decade or two it seems like publishers have realized that different people have different viewpoints, and those are varied and interesting.
