a wound to the heart is also a wound to the mind: stackin-up: you-do-not-do: Being black was the best choice I ever...
Being black was the best choice I ever made!
Isn’t it weird how it’s okay for black people to say this but as soon as I say “being white was the best choice I ever made” it’s racist?
Isn’t it weird how black people and white people aren’t equal in this society, so any equations you try to make are inherently skewed? Isn’t it weird how racism is a system of power, all of which lies with white people? Isn’t it weird how anytime subjugated groups try to (parodically or otherwise) take pride in actually, you know, having a culture after centuries of marginalization and atrocity, white people have to (simply cannot go without, couldn’t live without doing so) insert themselves in some hypothetical, bullshit way that shows their paltry understanding of peripheralization and race and oppression?
Really weird to me.
