The assumption that many whites make about racism, is that only bad individuals, who intentionally harm or don’t like black people are racist. Not so… If I challenge you, I hope your discomfort doesn’t tempt you to invalidate my experience.
My exposure of pervasive white supremacy may upset you, but when you weaponize your emotions and respond with the intention of backing me off of you, I see this as your attempt to return to the comfort of your white equilibrium. But if you care, stay out here, be vulnerable, and be willing to break from white solidarity. I’m not asking too much of you.
