White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”

I will never understand why.

Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.

Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.

Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.

If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.

"I’m still struggling with her death. She was my best friend and biggest fan.""What’s your happiest memory of her?""When I graduated from high school, I had to either sing a song or recite a poem. I sang a song that she’d taught me, and she was in the front row, clapping louder than everyone.""Do you remember the song?"“‘I never can forget the day,I heard my mother kindly say,You’re leaving now my tender care;Remember, child, your mother’s prayer.’”

[image text] Cecilia loves pole dance, but she’s been told to stop practicing it so that people won’t think she’s a slut. You shouldn’t care about that. Your dance is beautiful, Cecilia, and it doesn’t depreciate from your character. You can exercise however you like!
