you lost my respect, you are trully and actually, you can deny it but we all know better, saying germans are bad because of history, russians because of stalin regime hostory, muslims because of terrorism history and whites for slavery history, makes us bad too. Don't try to make you look like a phrophet because you actually are saying that but pretend yourself you do not.
but that isn’t what i’m saying?
i’m not saying i, as a white person, am solely responsible for the slave trade. i’m saying that i, as a white person, have a responsibility to work against the social power i get today from being a white person, and that power has its roots in imperialism & slave trade & all that.
this social power is visible in situations like how i’m statistically more likely to get an apartment than a person of color, especially if that person has an “ethnic” sounding name. that is explicit racism that i personally benefit from, whether i want to or not. and because i benefit from that racism, i’m complicit to the racist system.
