In response to a confession. Yes I am white. No I don't have black friends. Are you white? If so, sounds like you suffering from white guilt. Why? If you are black, feel free to point out privileges I might be overlooking.

If I take a deep breath it'll be to pterodactyl screech into the face of a racist. Suggesting that black people have lower IQs and that's why they shoot each other is some twisted shit that goes back to the early days of anthropology, when they would study African and Amazonian tribes like animals. Fuck taking a breath and stepping back. I'm rightfully pissed. Ffs, a racist manifesto just caused another mass shooting, this time deliberately aimed at immigrants. If you want to take a step back, cool. I'll be over here screaming like a fucking banshee.

"Let's assume white privilege exists". Lemme're white. And you have used the phrase, "I'm not racist, I have black friends!"

First of all, let's take a deep breath. My understanding is that people in the racial justice movement are not asking white women to stop talking, but to be conscious of how much space we are taking up. So I try to check myself on that, especially when it comes to talking about my emotional response to new information and ideas. I can use my privilege to support this movement, but I have to remember that they don't need my "help." They know what they are doing. What I can do is make space for their work. So I'm sorry if someone made you feel bad, or like you were told to STFU. Sharing power takes some getting used to. Try not to take it personally. If you really care about social justice, and I believe that you do, take a deep breath and just remember that this is a journey. It brings up a lot of emotions, but POC are not responsible for helping us work through those emotions. Keep listening, keep reflecting, keep seeking information, and don't give up.

In response to a confession. Oh ffs... read a fucking book before spouting your uneducated bullshit. Empirical evidence beats your opinion, emotional response, and whatever the hell you've heard from friends, family, the internet, or Fox news regarding racism and BLM. I swear to Christ, some people here make me roll my eyes so hard, I get a view of the back of my skull. Until you're educated on violence and inequality, STFU.

Can you imagine if very large swaths of the US just decided, without being forced, to own only 5 outfits at any given time and wore everything to death, stop shopping as entertainment weekly (people do!), & own electric cars only? That should shake up the 1%! Mofos think they are untouchable at this point.

In response to a confession. It's because sometimes allies get it wrong. They think they're speaking up for marginalized groups of people, but they're coming at it from a place of privilege and it comes off as patronizing. It also doesn't help that "white" organizations are making bank off the backs of marginalized people. Just look at how corporations are profiting from pride month. Jesus, then there's Taylor Swift. When white allyship is frequently insincere and only done to make a profit, people are going to be suspicious. Doesn't mean you stop calling out bigotry. When people call you out on your allyship, ask them how you can do better. It's like a man who only accepts feminism from HIS perspective. If he would listen, maybe he would understand. Also, white women over 35 got Trump elected. Of course people are pissed at our demographic, lol.

I love it when people say white and male privileged doesn't exist. Let's say white people, or better yet, white men, are not allowed to vote for the next couple hundred years. They also aren't allowed to own property during that time. After the couple hundred years is up, do you think things in this country would look a little different? The answer to that is absolutely. Well, that world is the REALITY for POC and women.

Who told you to STFU about BLM? I am a very vocal supporter of the BLM movement, and no one has ever said anything to me about not speaking up. And I'm white. The only people who said anything were white a-holes, with their ALM BS.

In response to a confession. A white person can use their time, money, intellect, and education to help people but not their privilege-because it doesn't exist.
