"decentralize yourself. in the same way that i can not roll up and participate in an indigenous peoples ceremony, or Japanese theatre, or anyone elses culture, you can not participate in mine, just because you want to. appreciate. it’s that simple. decentralize and simply appreciate. the assertion that i do not want non poc engaging with my work is false, I do not want non poc appropriating my work/my culture/my experiences/ my heritage/ my people. i do not want non poc using it for something. I don’t want salt. to be exploited, exoticized, or an educational manual on who we are. if you are not a poc, i simply want you to appreciate and honor it as someone else’s truth. remove yourself from the equation and appreciate someone else’s reality. not for what it can give you, but for what it is."
