2. Wow.


"...advocating for one’s needs forces one to confront white power—and to do that one inevitably must deal with white people. One must convince the white people in power as to the validity of your cause or grievance. And that often means making them, or those around them, into allies. And that’s a bummer..."

I was born advocating ...then given much enlightenment by a rainbow of poc (and gay trans whatever - theatre kid, yanno) along the way, and today. Also learned much through observation and wide compulsive reading. Also the Ivory tower, looking down...you see it. You hear it. You fight it best you can using logic and bravery and debating skills - although folks didn't listen much to girls and women...still don't...

This much I know: stroking with a broad brush is dehumanizing.
