Response to Luminous Animal (Reply #27)

Sat Nov 7, 2015, 11:41 PM

29. I have been experiencing racism since I was in diapers. And PROTESTING THAT!!

 

I was far less safe in my protest of racism than most whites since I was the one in danger and the one experiencing it.
I find it amusing to get race lectures from people who never experience racism. It is like they think their marching or protesting matters more than the day to day crap I go through and speak up on constantly. Like they feel blacker than me or in a position above me that they have no qualms over 'lecturing' black folks on race and civil rights and protesting. Sad, because it comes off as paternalistic and rude. Maybe a bit bigoted. Like they think that they as whites are better able to reason or that their white selfs protesting matters far more than the black selfs who protest just, because they are white. I think that's why some keep reminding blacks about Bernie marching for THEIR rights. See? He did not have to do you this wonderful favor you ungrateful blacks, is what I hear everytime. Many of us do. That is why Berniesoblack happened.
