#250posts24hrsAAPI - 154: White People. I Know Your Networks So Don't Hate

Sunday, May 21, 2017

Sometimes I just like to go off on White People - and I've said this before but I'll say it again:

Why do some White People like to take offense to everything not having to do with them?

I mean I've known White Folks who should be more liberal in regard to race and ethnicity, but when Asian Americans they may know speak up from a POC POV, they just can't handle it.

It's like they feel the wounds of their White brothers and sisters even though the target was never even aimed at them and I feel like you have to get over that Whiteness in order to progress.

I'm sure I've lost folks in that way - and while I could lament some thing and say "Oh that's too bad because they did have some nice qualities" at the end of the day, if you're not down for the other POV - if it's just too close to home because you can't separate yourself - it's really not my problem.

Stay White as you want to be.

Just stay away from me.
