I’m starting to notice a trend of stories and articles being made up or exaggerated recently to scare or anger POC :/ all I have to say is FACT CHECK FACT CHECK FACT CHECK. Not everything you see on FB and Tumblr is credible. Yes we need to be aware of issues and bring attention to injustices no matter what, but too often these scary stories become sensationalized and just make people walk around even more stressed out, anxious, on edge, and scared for their life than they already were. Fear mongering Poc is gross. Putting Poc’s mental health and stability at risk is fucking gross.
Also, asking people “Why aren’t you talking about this thing you didn’t even know about and is not even 100% accurate” is gross.
