i think a huge point that a lot of people are missing in this complete shit show is how tana has acted with a great deal of privilege herself.
she said in her response video to the incident that she felt “scared for her life” and she had never understood how people feel in life threatening situations. in other words, she is making ian’s quip out to be a hate crime.
she talks of ian’s white privilege but she forgets how full of it she is. this event was no where near comparable to events like war or, in reference to the slur itself, race related violence where people’s lives are actively put in danger and they are victimised for arbitrary reasons.
if she had simply said that ian had made her feel uncomfortable, she would have had a valid point, but acting like the slur impacts her on the same level that it would an actual black person, in my opinion, just goes to show how uneducated she is in regards to oppression and discrimination.
