No, it's fine to criticize white people as individuals when they do shitty things, and even certain subsections that also do shitty thing i.e. Republicans . But you speak about them like they're a collective group working towards some common goal. That the mere act of them being white is tantamount to creating a net minus in the world. As if they don't have individuals lives, with their own goals, but rather as a cancer, corrupting the world. 1/2
There’s always been this joke going around about how white people put an unrealistic expectation on Islamists by saying they need to tell others to stop using the Quran to justify violence. And I agree with this entirely, it’s completely unrealistic expectation. However, there are many white people who fight for those less fortunate than them, but they’re also powerless when put against this century old system. Should we just say fuck them? They’re not doing enough. 2/2
white people as a group benefit from whiteness. muslims as a group do NOT benefit from extremism and we are in fact hurt by it, so thanks for the false equivalencies.
why the hell do you expect me to put emotional energy i already have a limited supply of into holding white people’s hands and cooing softly that it’s okay, i know they’re not one of the bad ones, and give them an out when it comes to examining their own prejudice?
you’re a lot less anti-racist than you think you are if you don’t understand this simple concept: people of color can hate white people if they want to! i can express frustration and distress and resentment towards groups that have destroyed or been complicit in the destruction of everything i care about.
maybe go outside if you want messages about how great and wonderful whiteness is.
