Dismembered Bodies of Color: U.S. Imperialisms in the Pulse
- Author(s): Za3za3, Yazan
- et al.
Yazan Za3za3 critically contrasts the discursive responses to the 2016 Orlando Pulse shooting with their structural counterparts. They argue that under the mainstream veil of mourning and victimization of Black, Puerto Rican, and (queer) Muslim people, the United States was in fact able to minimize and invisibilize its ongoing domestic, imperialist, and Zionist attack of these very communities.
