FOLK that!

I’m having a problem with the word FOLK. yeah like WHAT THE FOLK?!!

it somehow legitimizes an OTHERNESS, a negative OTHERNESS.  as if there’s THE FOLKs and then the rest of civilization.  i don’t understand why people always have to break apart the continuum- for what reason really – other than to distinct themselves from one anOTHER.

i mean who comprises the group of FOLK. is it not our ancestors? our grandparents? those who hold historical wisdom, ancient knowledge. the indigenous. US. the living. i like LIVING better.
