States of Black Studies – The Black Scholar: Vol 44, No 2

“Given that black life is frequently thought to reside beyond the dominion of the West, despite being a product of these forces, one significant way to disassemble the coloniality of being in Western modernity is to continually insist on just how fundamental black life is to this terrain, albeit without resorting to a politics of recognition, since it simply merely supplements the systemic racialized territoriality of the modern West.”

– Alexander G. Weheliye
