Against Innocence

This week's reading will be of a text from LIES journal, called "Against Innocence: Race, Gender, & the Politics of Safety"

"Against Innocence: Race, Gender, and the Politics of Safety" by Jackie Wang. First published in LIES: A Journal of Materialist Feminism Vol. 1 (liesjournal.info), 2012. 
“Ultimately, our appeals to innocence demarcate who is killable and rapable, even if we are trying to strategically use such appeals to protest violence committed against one of our comrades. […] When we rely on appeals to innocence, we foreclose a form of resistance that is outside the limits of law, and instead ally ourselves with the State.”
