tendertough asked: you're so entitled to POC's explanations of your white privilege that it's nauseating
Then by all means, take it upon yourself to lift my sad sad ignorance. I simply don’t know what I’ll do if I can’t properly understand the woeful plight of the POC. Uh-oh, was my white privilege showing?
Before we get into my ignorance, can we check yours? Can you define whiteness for me again? Can you please let me in on the one identifying trait that every white person has in common with one another? I’ll wait. Let me hear why my parents, who are Eastern European and immigrated during the Cold War, were privileged in a way that unfair (trust me, they weren’t). I’ll be the first and last to merit that there is a heap of institutional racism, but no one needs your help identifying themselves. It’s ‘their’ identity. You don’t get to tell them what they are. For a queer person, this shouldn’t be groundbreaking.
