Dear people who are #notallwhitepeople and #notallwhitewomen -ing this article,
You are proving her point. If it doesn’t apply to you, it doesn’t to apply to you. By having to point out that you are not like “that” or did not see what she saw, you are prioritizing white fragility over honest conversation, which is exactly her criticism. Shows of exceptionalism rooted in denial of marginalization is a big part of what got us to boy-king Dick Tater running lose in government buildings. Do you really want to keep repeating those mistakes?
If you’re here invalidating what she saw because you did not see it, sorry to say, you’re doing this all wrong. Please find your nearest radical and ask them to explain how movements and peaceful revolution work.
