I can’t quite tell if there’s a sense of irony in this statement or not.

I don’t get what you’re trying to say.

Are you asserting I should feel guilty by default because I’m white (my individuality means nothing because I’m that monolithic thing called white?)?

Are you saying I owe something to someone because of someone else’s behavior (whom I don’t know and probably wouldn’t agree with if I did)?

Are you saying two wrongs can somehow make a right? If someone else establishes a framework of “Damned if I do, damned if I don’t,” then you should likewise establish one to make it right — or better yet, you’ll show them?

On top of everything, you seem to have characterized me as incapable of empathy because, being white, I can’t possibly understand the notion of a shitty circumstance — especially without having been 100% immersed in someone else’s unique form of shitty.

But you, dear white girl, you get it?

Good! Give your shoulders an extra heaping of guilt to cover my ass too, won’t you?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

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