    And let’s face it, Jon, there’s no way this man could be Santa. Because the moment white folks saw a Black man with a big old bag coming down the chimney, it’d be time to grab a gun and stand your ground.

    Martha Escobar’s essay provides a comparative and relational analysis of the detention, incarceration, deportation, and family separation of migrant women and the history of the criminalization of Black motherhood in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s. She reinforces the notion that incarceration is a mechanism for racialized social organization. For Escobar, the U.S. prison regime’s mobilization against migrants has as its context the criminalization of the bodies of Black women. The deployment of notions of Black mothers as ‘breeders of lawlessness’ fueled the expansion of the criminal justice system. By tracing how the ideological work performed to criminalize Black motherhood has been re-mapped onto migrant women, Escobar highlights the centrality of women’s reproduction in the racial organization of society, which takes place through the containment of bodies. She maintains that this dynamic is a fundamental method of regulating labor relations in the era of neoliberalism.

    Life is short, break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
    —  Mark Twain (via larmoyante)
