On “Woke” White People Advertising their Shock that Racism just won a Presidency
Courtney Parker West

Fuck this. White people have feelings, too. I feel no need to apologize for BEING BORN. Sick of whites being vilified as unable or unqualified to feel pain or have an opinion on ANYTHING. I didn’t get an option in the womb as to what race I would emerge as. When I explain to these millennial bigots that I’m white, male, gay and date a black guy, they look at me like I’m trying to get praise for “trying to prove” I’m not racist, or even prejudiced. Like I’m shooting for brownie points or something. I don’t have to prove a damn thing. I’m not responsible for the actions of other white people who are racist or bigoted. Just like I am not ignorant enough to blame the black race for the asshole who stole my bike. He stole it because he was a THIEF, not because he was black, and when my black friends say they hope I get the bike back, I am also not so ignorant as to pretend they don’t understand or feel my loss just because they happen to be the same color as the crook who did it.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
