Like I said, I understand where you’re coming…
I didn’t say I didn’t understand you or that I didn’t agree with you. I said this wasn’t the post or the place.
Nobody said ‘all white people.’
And for the record, the races of these people were relevant because her mistreatment of this boy is racial. She can’t empathize with his disability (why? don’t you know the disparities between race and empathy), the institution has supported her and allowed to swap out her one baby for a host of others, why? Because she’s white. If this were a minority family, the state would have removed that baby and disallowed them from ever adopting again. It’s a system, supporting and encouraging whiteness, even insidious deeds.
So, when a minority says ‘white people are evil.’ It’s really shorthand for ‘this system of white supremacy that is born of the oppression of minorities and contributes to and benefits from white people exclusively, both directly and indirectly, both subconsciously and purposefully, is evil.’
When a woman says ‘men are evil.’ It’s really shorthand for ‘this system of male dominance that has created a patriarchy in which the oppression of women is paramount in order to contributes to and benefit from men exclusively, both directly and indirectly, both subconsciously and purposefully, is evil.’
When queer people say ‘straight people are evil.’ It’s really shorthand for ‘this global system of heteronormativity where otherness is criminalized, segregated, and legally oppressed and shunned contributes to and benefits from straightness, cis-ness, and archaic gender and sex roles exclusively, both directly and indirectly, both subconsciously and purposefully, is evil.’
But people should have to explain ourselves. Malcolm X said the most efficient quote I’ve ever heard about so ‘reverse racism’ and why white name-calling is not racist:
"Why, when all of my ancestors are snake-bitten, and I’m snake-bitten, and I warn my children to avoid snakes, what does that snake sound like accusing me of hate-teaching?”
