I think I'm going to delete my Tumblr. I'm so tired of coming on here and being forced to feel guilty for being white. I hate being categorized as racist simply because I'm white. I can agree that there is no reverse racism but there is racism towards white people and it's just not acknowledged because apparently it's okay to be racist towards white people ya know cause they're white. I just don't understand why white is always used in a negative way.
- reverse racism doesn’t exist, so therefore racism against white’s is not a thing. there is prejudice and there are stereotypes against them, but you cannot be racist. racism is a power construct.
- i’m sorry you feel that way. but if you feel guilty for being white, that is an internal issue. if you have genuinely experienced someone saying “i do not like you because you’re white” or have been directly addressed to by someone saying “you’re at fault for my slavery” or some wild shit like that, then that’s one thing. but, if you feel guilty, without someone giving you a DIRECT reason to feel guilty, then it’s because YOU feel guilty because of something you’ve done, either knowing or maybe not knowing. if you are not racist, then you shouldn’t feel guilt, no matter what anyone says about or to you. if you feel guilty, it’s because you have a reason to.
ultimately it’s your choice what you do with your tumblr. but, quite frankly, i’m over with the “i feel guilty for being white” narrative. that’s a you issue that you need to work on.
