Thought

name-subject:

It doesn’t matter how late I stay up, how many obscure things I reblog, how many things I post that mean so much to me. Or things I feel I really connect with. Be cause blogging this bull shit is just one shade away from talking this bull shit. And we all know talk is cheap.

Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Say nothing.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.

I am coming to terms with the fact that loving someone requires a leap of faith, and that a soft landing is never guaranteed.

Because most Whites have not been trained to think complexly about racism, and because it benefits White dominance not to do so, they have a very limited understanding of racism. Yet dominance leads to racial arrogance, and in this racial arrogance, Whites have no compunction about debating the knowledge of people who *have* thought complexly about race. Whites generally feel free to dismiss these informed perspectives, rather than have the humility to acknowledge that they are unfamiliar, reflect on them further, or seek more information.

"…Whites are in the position to legitimize people of color’s assertions of racism. Yet Whites are the least likely to see, understand, or be invested in validating these assertions and being honest about their consequences. This position, coupled with the need for racial comfort, has many Whites insisting that people of color explain White racism in the "right" way. The right away is generally politely and rationally, without any show of emotional upset."

From the essay "I’m Leaving!" White fragility in Racial Dialogues by Robin J. DiAngelo 

Has this ever happened to you?  What did it look like?   How did you respond?

Words like “exotic” as applied to women with non-white skin have weight and power because they are reminders that non-white women are being held against the white beauty standard and being found different (and therefore wanting).

Or different as in a nice adventure from normal/reality from which the man will eventually return ‘home’ from.
I hate the word “Exotic” as a compliment from men. HATE IT.
