Food. Film. Humor. Beauty in every form. Beyoncé. Opinions. Frustrations. Reflections. Pains. Joys.
Things I know for sure.
My answers to some of life's questions.
Proof that I existed. That I had thoughts and stood for something.
These are my beliefs - my values.
I want to love and make sure such love is felt. To bolster when things fall.
To make them laugh and make them smile. To open up with them.
To help discover the truly important things about life.
To leave behind a positive mark on this world.
This is a resource post for all the Good White Person™s out there. You know, the ones who say things like “It’s not my fault I’m white! Don’t generalize white people!”, or “I’m appreciating your culture! You should be proud!”, or “Why do you hate all white people, look I’m a special snowflake who’s not racist give me an award for meeting the minimum requirements for being a decent human being”.
Well, if you are actually interested in understanding racism and how it ties into cultural appropriation, please read instead of endlessly badgering PoCs on tumblr with your cliched, unoriginal arguments and repeating the same questions over and over.
On White Privilege aka don’t blame me just because I’m white:
White Americans always think racism is a feeling, and they reject it or they embrace it. To most [white] Americans, it seems more honorable and nicer to reject it, so they do, but they almost invariably fail to understand that how they feel means very little to black Americans, who understand racism as a way of structuring American culture, American politics, and the American economy.
