Response to villager (Reply #163)

170. This is not hectoring.

 

This is being brutally honest. If folks cannot handle honesty and bluntness then they are hiding from reality. My reality in this natuon is not theirs. The fact the they want me to view life from their perspective and ignore my own is very selfish.
My purpose in life is not to make people feel better about the oppression tossed towards my people, but to highlight it and say how fucked up it is. It should make them stop, think, put theirselves in my skin for a second and look at the world through my eyes. It will upset them. It is supposed to. It is liberating for all of us.

The point is not to offer up views as to why the black perspective is wrong or to find arguments aginst intersectionality or to appropriate bits of black history and culture for themselves. The point is to respect it and to give us space to voice our concerns and support US, not always having to be the ones that get to have a say OVER us, and set the agenda, and the rules, and to decide, and tell us what we should think or see or know or care about or understand.
