the motivations behind

if i were writing about the indigenous peoples of america,
canada, and australia being second-class citizens in their
ancestral lands; or if i were writing about palestinians
and kurds who crave their statehood; or if i were writing
about uighurs sterilized, raped, tortured, and murdered
in chinese “re-education” camps; or if i were writing
about [insert any tragedy or injustice you want here],
would it be a struggle to shake off pervasive indifference,
or just a pathetic attention-seeking attempt?
