In this paper I will present an introduction to the life and work of Bill T. Jones. I will then discuss the process and performance of the dance piece Still/Here. I will consider the controversy around Arlene Croce's response to Still/Here claiming it was "victim art". I will set up the theoretical framework of white supremacist and imperialistic cultures to illustrate how through that lens, Arlene Croce's article reflects white supremacist values.
