#Repost @sonyareneetaylor • • • • • • folks found themselves coming to the aid of Haley even though she was never attacked. the inclination of those indoctrinated into whiteness is to protect whiteness. to exalt white effort no matter how off the mark, to applaud white mediocrity no matter how beneath the bar and to protect whiteness no matter how not in danger it is. ask yourself: if you were defensive for Haley, why? If you answered the questions about whiteness by discussing what other groups have done throughout history , explore why you seek to distance yourself from true introspection? What is making you avoid looking at whiteness. what do you fear you'll find? How is your life a reflection of white supremacist delusion? what has collective white supremacist delusion created? How do you begin to divest? keep on work inward and outward. #defundpolice #whitesupremacy #blacklivesmatter #radicalselflove #thebodyisnotanapology #divestfromwhiteness
#Repost @sonyareneetaylor • • • • • • The viral video of Haley challenging her racist parents has gone viral for Folks inspired by her desire to stand up to her parents and advocate for Black people. However, Haley missed the mark and my hunch is most white folks do. STOP arguing with your white family about Black people. START talking about the sickness that is whiteness and how you and them have ingested it. White people talk about people of color so that they don't have to deal with themselves and the culture and systems whiteness has created inside them. White people it is time to talk about WHITENESS and not about Black folks. #indefenseofblacklives #whitesupremacymustfall #whitestalkaboutwhiteness #healyourwhiteness #blacklivesmatter

#Repost @rachel .cargle - she's an excellent follow huns • • • • • • Good morning 🌞 . Your quarterly reminder for consideration and critical conversation: • A large percentage of the US population of black and brown people exist within a systematic racism that had determined their access to many of the things we recognize as wealth building aspects of life — housing, education, etc. • Through housing red lining (google it ) black families weren’t able to own homes. Through segregation and discrimination black families had little access to quality education that would have led to profitable jobs. Through racial profiling and mass incarceration under the guise of a “war on drugs” which imprisoned thousands on charges that white people now have whole business and make millions from in the marijuana industry.....the list goes go on. • Also taking into consideration historical instances where white people made extra efforts to completely burn down and obliterate communities where black wealth was being built like the Memphis riots of 1866 and the Tulsa riots 1921 — google them. • This racism has effected generations and generations of families, limiting their access to the things that more privileged white families had which aided in them gaining the wealth that is enjoyed/benefitted from today. • Black families had to “start over” generation after generation to catch up with what white families had been building on for generations. • Maybe you manifested all of this “access” and “opportunity” and “thousands of dollars in seed money from a family and friends fundraiser” or maybe.....it’s your white privilege. • Art by: @rainbowkimono meme by: @riseupgoodwitch •
