and everyone lashed out at her except for like one person who explained it

i don’t think i’ll ever understand the ‘it’s not my job to educate you’ thing

like, yeah, if someone randomly comes up to you on the street and says “hey, you’re black, teach me about racism!” that’s really dumb

but if you constantly talk about this shit, whether IRL or on the internet, and people are actually interested in learning, why the hell wouldn’t you want to help them do so?

or, god, even if they’re not asking about it and they just make a mistake that you more than likely made once too, don’t even try to pretend you’re perfect, why the hell can’t you say “hey, you said this is it was wrong and I’m going to explain to you why *explains thing*”

there’s a good chance that if you don’t lash out at them, they won’t lash back and will actually fucking learn something and might be willing to learn more

going “you’re a fucking idiot, educate yourself” helps no one
