Straight up gonna write a Black Person's Guide the Fedi because a lot yall faves don't like Black folks unless they're playing the obedient token.
Ha, and yall calling it diversity.
@Are0h DEW IT
@Are0h Can you make a list?! I wanna see if I have the same people.
@hansbauer I'll answer this with an example.
Consider Candice Owen, a Black American political pundit that basically just parrots conservative and generally racist view points of white people for support. She is an example of a token.
White people generally prefer these kind of Black people because they are complaint to their discriminatory world view, ergo obedient.
@Are0h PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE include something about not blowing your discourse load all over someone's mentions. B/c i dunno HOW many times i've made a pretty soft toot that i OBVIOUSLY dont want turned into a 900 thread discussion, only for white people to show up with their dissertation trying to prove my *OPINION WRONG*.
B/c that's fucking annoying, and very white behavior.
@somarasu Yup. Robin DiAngelo described this behavior as white people making those conversations so miserable, that we just stop talking about it.
And that's the point. Wether it is with raw racism, or shallow performances of civility, white people will use any means they can to avoid taking responsibility for the issues the consistently cause.
tired: kill em with kindness
wired: kill em with whiteness
@somarasu inspired: step out of the way and let them kill each other.
