People who think like this are exactly why fandoms are broken and will remain broken. They either truly don’t get it or don’t want to get it, even even people from marginalized groups try to explain it to them.
This is what privilege looks like. This is what it sounds like. This is why WOC, and especially black women, will likely never have a safe space in fandoms. And this is precisely why defense squads are needed and will continue to be needed for the foreseeable future. But guess what? We got this. ✊✊✊

Do you need me to give you a speech on personal development? Or are you asking me to explain your mind frame and make it up for you?”
