Day 48: Another Thought

Here’s something I find interesting.

When white people get their feelings hurt by a PoC, they always say that’s racism.

However, when PoC say that we’re hurt, offended, triggered, or insulted by some blatantly racist thing they have done (e.g., backface, racist “jokes,” cultural appropriation, the use of racial slurs, dismissal of our feelings/experiences, etc), that’s never racism to them.

That’s just an “opinion” and we’re the ones being racist for being offended by their actions and calling them on it.

They give excuse after excuse about why what they did isn’t racist and how we’re “oppressing ourselves.”

I’ll never truly understand how those people’s minds work.
