    lookatthewords:

    I have some questions for you, actually.

    Are you systemically oppressed?

    Do you have a history of genocide, enslavement and oppression which still actively leaks and informs your daily life and opportunities?

    Is the worse discrimination you’ve experienced being called a cracker in the 6th grade?

    Meanwhile;

    Whoa, it does not stop

    Racism against White people does not exist. Me calling you a cracker might hurt your feelings but it could never oppress you. Was never used to oppress you. Your history is being Oppressor, not the oppressed.

    Meanwhile you calling me a racial slur only enforces the engraved white is right superiority that is literally seeped in everything, from beauty standards to a human value and innocence. All around the world.

    You have a million and one links provided for you. Now go learn.

    We live in a pretty fucked up society. This all relates back to a bunch of “boys will be boys” mentality from parents. I get so pissed when I hear that. Like fuck bad parenting. ugh. This world. 

    On a positive not there are still decent people out there and it’s our job to try to be the best human beings we can and teach others to do the same.

    [My Twitter tribute to Maya Angelou, who is now resting in power at age 86]

    Maya Angelou has always been my blueprint, the black woman writer whose work has affirmed me, whose words assured me that I was worthy of being heard. It was Maya Angelou who freed me with I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, it was Maya Angelou who helped me place first in my high school speech contest where I recited I Rise and Phenomenal Woman, it was Maya Angelou who strengthened me as I prepared to share my story in 2011 with the following mantra:

    "There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you."

    Thank you, Maya, my mother-writer-sister-goddess.
