Does anyone have a PDF copy of A.G. Hopkins "An Economic History of West Africa"? I have the book but need it while I'm traveling and already have too many physical books. Thanks everyone!

I’ve been thinking about why so much discourse in American culture discourages people from claiming the status of “victim.” I wonder if it’s a way of conditioning ppl out of their power b/c victims can demand that someone be held accountable for their victimization…

don't capture the essence of the problem I'm trying to highlight. Any suggestions for readings on frameworks that might work better? In desperation, I've thought about "trans-colonial" but that just sounds so clunky lol

However, currency restrictions and border controls obstructed trade between these regions in much the same way as trade between contemporary nations-states. How would you describe a situation like this? I've thought about using "trans-local" and "trans-regional" but these terms..

Question 4 historian friends, how do you talk about relationships between different colonial settings? I'm writing about markets that cut across French Togoland, British Togoland & the Gold Coast & the word I keep trying to use is "transnational markets" but these aren't nations

I’m just exhausted by essentializing broke grad student culture ™️ that doesn’t center the most vulnerable to economic precarity. Feeling awkward having to ask your rich grandparents for money again is not the same as actually being broke !

Black kids don’t need tough love, the world is tough enough. They need love. Just love.

Quoted @_aly_tho_

the limited worker solidarity I feel with fellow grad students who are children of profs/lawyers/docs etc… it often sounds like “raise my stipend so I can stop using my trust fund to pay rent!!” please at least recognize the power dynamics between you and others 🤪

My favorite is when wealthy people try to act like they are more in solidarity with the working class than you are because they read some books on labor history. https://t.co/eEouADyvYw

Native Americans have the highest vaccination rate in the US. I would add, that our tribes have distributed a disproportionate number of vaccines to both tribal citizens and non-citizens alike. https://t.co/eVqoTxcAuI

Excellent. https://t.co/FPWQOxkkp7

Mythbusters but for rich people who think they work harder than the poor and that's the only reason disparity exists.

Thank you @BlkPerspectives for the space to write about sesame seeds, land, and the Black Diaspora in the US and Mexico. https://t.co/uwnLRy5k1l

Call me crazy Lefty, but I don’t think a handful of corporations should be able to crush new competitors, set wages, and buy our political system.

Western News outlets report on Haiti almost exactly the same way they report on African countries. Gee, I wonder why that might be.
