The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Natasha Marin. A writer and interdisciplinary artist, Marin is a mother and a resident of Washington state. She was born in Trinidad and is a naturalized citizen of the United States and Canada. During the summer of 2016, a Facebook experiment evolved into the website: www.Reparations.me. Non-whites encouraged “to ask for what we need to feel better, be happier, be more productive by posting in this space. These may be both material and immaterial requests.” Marin then invited “people who identify as White to offer services or contributions.” The cite has garnered a great deal of attention from around the world. A number of non-white people have been able to ask for and receive constructive help. However, non-white people requesting help and Ms. Marin have been racial terrorized; Suspected Racists have labeled them “whores,” “bloodsuckers,” and racial slurs. We’ll ask if this unforeseen “whitewash” will cause her to end this experiment prematurely.
