I’m honestly feeling incredibly miserable right now. I’m being called ignorant by people not understanding my viewpoint on something important to me as an Indian girl. I feel like I have a personal insight on certain matters - matters that non-Indian people feel they have the right to either lecture me on or insult me over. This is my culture! This is my life! To say I’m ignorant, to say I’m obtuse, to say I don’t understand whitewashing and colorism!
You didn’t even look through my blog to see who I am. Why should you? When it’s so easy to reblog and tag “bad post op”
Its hurtful. It’s degrading. It’s honestly full of ignorance. You don’t know me. You don’t want to. You just want to paint me with the same brush as everyone else. So you can use your pain at the injustices of the world that so many of us feel and point it at any target that doesn’t fit in perfectly in your views regardless of the hypocrisy.
Instead of banding together to break the wheel of racial discrimination in the world we turn against one another.
I’m just so tired. I can’t deal with this right now. I can’t argue and justify when I’ve stated the same thing over and over in previous posts. I’m jaded but not bitter. I stand by my opinions and I do so knowing it’s mine alone and I know they’re opinions meant to open conversations and not hurt nor harm others.
