and by “learned” i mean reminded. and by “the past 24 hours” i mean my life (but especially the past 24 hours):
- they really believe they should be able to say whatever they want to whomever they want however they want and not hear shit about it
- they can only hear other white people (i.e. chorus of POC to white person: “you’re wrong.” white person: “no i’m not!” single solitary white person to first white person: “you’re wrong.” first white person: “OMG I SEE THE LIGHT NOW THANK YOU UGH IF SOMEONE ELSE HAD JUST PUT IT LIKE THAT I WOULD HAVE GOTTEN IT A LOT SOONER”)
- they really think the world revolves around them and their feelings
- and by extension, they can only feel when they are directly implicated in what’s going on. no ability to empathize without placing themselves in the center of whatever’s going wrong
- and then they have honestly no idea why folks are telling them their shit stinks. which i guess would be pretty confusing, considering how the world has told them since day one that their anus is lined with gold and only shits rose petals.
Anyone want to bet on how long it takes for “You’re being so mean to white people” to appear in this thread? My money is on 10 minutes, but I could be too optimistic.

I don’t know this beautiful baby girl, nor do I know her family. I happened to come across this on twitter. I decided to make a tumblr post because the word NEEDS to get out about this in every possible way. If you see or hear anything you can reach her sister at the following places.
REBLOG THIS POST AND HELP THIS BEAUTIFUL CHILD RETURN TO HER HOME!

white people. white people. just so we’re, like, clear and stuff
you don’t get to compare your bullies to the klan.
no matter the context. no matter how justified you otherwise are in your anger. no matter what horrible shit has been lobbed at you leading up to such a crass fucking comparison.
you never get to do that.
because you have no frame of reference for the evil of the klan
