not trying to be rude but white (and non black poc) should be raising the voices of black people who are already making posts like that one, rather than regurgitating points for notes as a white person. it happens way too often it looks performative and self congratulative rather than supportive in all honesty. please reblog and support black people on tumblr who've been saying these things from the beginning bc we know multiple posts are out there already coming from a personal place. thank u.
not rude at all, you’re absolutely right. i think it would be much better if white people who are trying talk about antiblack racism/black issues would actively attempt to find black voices & boost them instead since any thought wrt to that experience is never going to be useful, original, or wanted tbh. i think especially with moonlight that this is a really important moment that shouldn’t be overshadowed & i don’t want to take away from that/speak over that at all or pretend that i’m any sort of ‘authority’. i am guilty in crossing those boundaries honestly so i want to be better & conscious abt that.
