It’s funny that most social justicers I know (both IRL, and on the internet) are white.
It’s also funny that they’re always the first to cry “racism” at anything, and get offended at people being “racist”.
I actually find this “racism offense” and misunderstanding of racism to be in itself racist.
Dealing with racism every day of your life, you have an understanding of what is true racism, what is unintentional misunderstanding (though racist in connotation), and what is not racist at all.
This segregation of “POC are this, think this, and are offended by this" makes me feel singled out, in a similar way that racism does.
Some people are too happy to hand out the “CHECK YOUR PRIVILEGE” card, without checking their own.
I am POC, I am Bi, and have lived a life spanning developing countries (of my origin) to the lower middle class one I live now.
I’ve dealt with my share of closed-mindedness (racism, classism etc), and this same close-minded stubbornness appears with some SJs.
When people start saying “THAT IS RACIST” to things that are clearly not racist, it just stigmatises POC. It creates an “Us and Them” mentality, and is counter productive.
I would like to live in a world where my family, children, grandchildren, will not be judged due to colour. If this makes me racist, so be it.
(If you are a POC SJ, I sympathise. You understand racism. I hope that we have the same aim to live in a world where colour is irrelevant to what our families can do in life.)
