White people on my dash are aggressively posting about ferguson. like every single post is about it. im not sure why but it makes me really uncomfortable to see white people specifically posting? any thoughts or opinions would be great or if anyone has been feeling this as well...

Asked by Anonymous

I’ve felt this way too. Specifically coming from folks who I know are only interested because the events in Ferguson are trending right now. A black person is killed every 28 hours. Where’s the grief for all of our children? 

Best thing to do is take folks with a grain of salt and realize that white allies can be useful because white people are more likely to listen to other white people. Remember you don’t have to engage if it’s toxic for you or bothers you. 

Keep your head up.

I'm black and when I am out with my parents I get stared at by white people when I speak. At first I thought that I was seeing things but, it's happening more times than I can count. It makes me feel uncomfortable. What should I do?

Asked by Anonymous

First, I’m sorry you have to deal with that. I want to tell you to ignore it. To only put yourself in situations where you’ll be cradled with love and support. Sadly I know both of those aren’t always possible. 

When you’re in those situations remind yourself that who you are deserves to take up space. Remind yourself that the ignorance and racism of white people doesn’t take away your worth. Remind yourself that you and the way you speak are perfect. 

Fuck anyone who makes you uncomfortable or think otherwise.

next time you hear a white person say “well if black people can say the n-word why can’t i???” you should ask them “why do you want to?” and listen as they try not to say “black people have something of their own that I am not entitled to and that hurts my feelings and makes me feel inferior”

Do you feel as though you are supporting ignorance and segregation by shaming people away from enjoying, understanding, and trying to see a culture from a 1st person POV? How can people learn about and appreciate other cultures if they are constantly told they are not welcome? How is this "us and them" helping if not to keep a race pure and separated? And how is this not racial supremacy?

Why do White-identified folk always think the ultimate goal of racial justice is snuggling up to White people?

they’re all about propagating the white agenda, they’re self-centered, and the big kicker:

it’s the classic “me me me” syndrome 

  • what about me
  • my feelings
  • my experiences

and hyperbole is always used - through the viewpoint and reason that anything not about them is destructive, denigrating, and downright rude and mean 

it’s never about anyone else. we (non-white folk) don’t matter.

white ppl created racist nationalism by asserting authority on others as if they own the damn world & sees us as inferiors but make them witness the result of their influence on POC as we became nationalistic and prideful by shooting down the oppression, lies and mockery set by westerns upon us and ya'll see white ppl be all like "WE R OL HOOMAN BEENGS!!!11" while throwing tantrums like a fucking child and breeding hate on us for being "arrogant". Irony is sure a common thing in western society.

white ppl are the type of ppl that will mock you for your skin tone, race, culture and religion by forcing negative, unrealistic stereotypes in you but would love to join in your culture and identity once they saw something from your race more beautiful and better than theirs. They'll turn from " eew, poc are so gross & so primitive! No culture at all! I'm so proud to be white!" to "OMG! Muslim culture is so pretty, I'm so proud to be aryan, cherokee, egyptian, indo-european!" lol. fuck off.

It's not that POC cannot reach white ppl's standards, it's just that whenever a POC manage to reach the top of the white ppl's standard, even as far as going beyond such standard, white ppl would do anything to drag us down with the use of negative stereotype that attached to our wings and pull it off when we go too far, and when we fall, that's the time they'll put extra load in our backs in order for us to struggle more in our lives. THAT is how desperate these white ppl are.
