"If white people are so privileged why is there a Black Entertainment Network and no White Entertainment Network?"
"Men don’t have privilege, there are women’s only gyms!"
"Why isn’t there a campus centre for straight/cis people!?"
SAME REASONS WHY IN MARIO KART YOU DON’T GET BLUE SHELLS OR LIGHTNING BOLTS WHEN YOU’RE ALREADY IN FIRST PLACE, ASSBAG.
This is honestly the best explanation I have ever seen.
We’ve addressed this a lot. I don’t believe white people should leverage their white privilege to try and speak against white privilege, as that makes absolutely no logical sense. I do believe white people should listen, spread the word, and correct the behavior of their white peers, but the #1 absolute most important thing a white person should do is to critically examine their own behaviors and prejudices, making sure they are not perpetuating racism in their own lives.
Don’t think about it as “How can I stop other white people from being racist?” Thing of it as “How can I stop myself from being racist?” That should be your first priority.
