*99% of black people all agree that something is offensive*
1 black person comes out with their cooning self and says ‘actually you know what I’m black and I don’t find this offensive tbh’
White people: OMG FINALLY SOMEONE SAID IT. YESSSS. SEE YOU GUYS ARE OVERREACTING. WE ALL BLEED RED WE ALL SUFFER EQUALLY. WE ALL BURN IN THE SUN!!!!!!!!
White privilege isn’t about whether or not you believe you’re better than anybody else. But yo, will you ever encounter systematic racism? No. Will your daughter? Yes.
Like, to take people speaking out against a system of oppression that will negatively impact your daughter, one potentially will effect her in profoundly devastating ways, and to say “Yes, but what about meeeeee?” is actually really shitty.
Get over yourself.
I never actually said anything about myself. I said it’s bullshit to think that my daughter won’t grow up with the same chances as I had. But you took it in a completely wrong direction and missed the point by far. I was asking a simple question, I was not attacking, I just wanted to know if my daughter was going to have different opportunities than me because of her race and you took it way out of line. A+ for you this is white privilege blog
I would highly recommend you look up the word “intersectionality,” before you end up fucking up your kid because you don’t get how institutionalized racism effects her currently and will continue to do so throughout her life, and refuse to educate yourself and instead scream and complain about how the white privilege blog that you sought out and asked an opinion of missed the point and was mean to you. My favorite little kid on the planet is 3, mixed and has a white mom and has been experiencing institutionalized racism since the day she was fucking born. Also, it might help if you realize how huge of a troll you are.
And before you start screaming about how meanie POC was mean to you and called you privileged, I’m white. We have privilege over POC, including your daughter. Get a fucking clue.
Once again I will repeat “I was asking a simple question, I was not attacking, I just wanted to know if my daughter was going to have different opportunities than me because of her race and you took it way out of line” I didn’t “scream and complain” I simply stated that they missed the point. I wasn’t whining about how some person of color was being mean to me. Wow they called me privileged, I didn’t say that I wasn’t in my original post. But please. continue to take what I say out of context and argue over what I meant with me.
Considering that your entire blog is essentially a whiney troll rant about how you’re not privileged and the social justice camp has been mean to you, im probs not gonna engage you any further. My point stands. The anon who was nice to you about your refusal to learn anything for yourself? If you had taken the time to google intersectionality, you would have been able to figure it out all by yourself. Stop asking oppressed people to lay everything out for you and start putting some effort into educating yourself. You are a grown ass woman, a mom, and yeah, you need to figure it out and get over yourself a little at least for your kid’s sake.
Actually I just had a moment of realization today that I was frustrated with how things were run on tumblr now, my entire blog if you look is a regular blog that usually has nothing to do with social justice. I’m just so tired of posting one little thing and having it blown way out of context, and so I asked one simple question about privilege and the amount of backlash is astounding. To think that people have nothing to do with their time than complain about a mother asking a question about her daughter and how differently she would be treated just completely and utterly surprises me.To quote half of tumblr “I came out here to have a good time and honestly I’m feeling a little attacked right now”. Respond if you want, or don’t respond, you’re just a person over the internet and that’s not going to change how I run my life, I asked a one thing about the wellbeing of my daughter and to have it be so rudely taken out of context is ridiculous and you should really reevaluate how you go about doing things, but that’s not really my problem is it?
Becca do not even go down this route with these people please
This is the side of Tumblr that drives me up a wall okay please do not even interact with these people
But you see, Alex, part of me has to because I asked one tiny little question regarding my daughter and because I added that I was white in there, they tore into me, taking my question completely out of context and changing it around to make me a bad person so that their followers had yet another shitty white person to hate
Your question was about you not your daughter. You literally said “and that makes me feel” and turned the entire focus of the question on to yourself. Do you really not get that? Instead of asking a question about your daughter you asked a question about her privilege in relation to yours. Also, I’m pretty sure the concept of white privilege eludes you completely, you should educate yourself. If not for your own sake then for your daughter’s. You don’t have a white child you have a child of color and she’s going to have to navigate the world as such. Equip yourself with knowledge so you can truly be an ally to her as she goes through life because parroting the ‘we have all the same opportunities’ thing is prolly not gonna help much. Or don’t. I’m just a well meaning stranger from the internet, I don’t know your life.
