i came across this list – 18 Ways of Destroying a Black Organisation* – in the early 2000s. i’ve tried to google but can’t find it anywhere. it’s been on my mind lately, luckily, for some reason i had dug it ouf of my boxes and pinned it on my wall. i’m sharing the first 4 points.
- don’t come to meetings.
- if you come to meetings, come late.
- don’t commit yourself for any work for the organisation.
- criticise others particularly ones who have rolled up their sleeves and got stuck into the work – accuse them of dominating the organisation or treating it like private property
self-sabotage ain’t good, folks…
*(original list published by Black News, Harlem – also kind find on google)
