Being white means you need to think twice about what you do, say, or wear because of your race.
Being a PoC means you need to think twice about where you live, work, and basically every single major life decision because of your race.
One of these groups got the better end of the deal.
and being a PoC also means you need to think twice about the small things, too.
like how you sound when you’e around white people (making sure your accent doesnt slip— talking Gringa 100% of the time is an effort). if you say or spell something wrong, it wont be seen as you being tongue tied, it will be because you’re inadequate.
or like having to think about how to wear your hair to an interview or to work (kinks, curls, or naps? should we deep fry our hair straight? locs? shave them off? serious questions some of us have to consider).
Or having to think twice about why this white dude is flirting with you randomly. Is it because he has a racist fetish?
When around white people, I literally feel a constant pressure to make sure that nothing I do or say “feeds into” the stereotypes I’m up against.
im taking the LSAT this weekend but haven’t studied as much as i wanted to. i dont even really want to go to law school i just want to make money and be comfortable… apparently lawyers dont make a lot of money anymore so idk what im doing.
im just really tired of being poor. maybe business school would be better? idk idk idk
:D Thank you!!!!!!! I hope you have a great day, too!!
you say: i always have to tip toe around you
it means: why can't i say oppressive shit around you? no one else calls out my racist jokes or sexist undertones
you say: you're always looking for an argument
it means: why do you stand up for yourself? your pain is really putting a damper on my personal comfort
you say: but i didn't mean it like that
it means: i'm pretty sure my intentions negate any oppressions i enable through the things i say and do
STOP THAT SHIT
