The problem with tumblr is that nothing is really precise so you never know which post attacks who. Because honestly a german person can think their medias/people were the target of the post "they making a excuse for a white man" while an american will think it was aimed to their medias and their bad coverage. Do you see what I mean ? precision is everything, otherwise it can hurt people
precision matters when it comes to POC too. that also hurts people.
all I’ve seen people do is call out the media for their biases in how they report on white people vs. POC. which is perfectly legit criticism. Americans put up with constant scrutiny of our culture and our media on tumblr—which is all fair (and largely true)! no one is indicting Germans specifically about this. I’ve never seen that accusation thrown around. all the posts I’ve seen are about English papers or media digging up literally any “mental health” excuse they can find for this guy killing 149 people. I have no clue how German papers are reporting this because I haven’t seen tumblr posts using German newspapers specifically, though honestly…white privilege transcends nations and cultures, so I would suspect they’re also displaying a sympathetic tone in their coverage.
if you’re not guilty of what posts are talking about, then the post isn’t about you. simple as that.
