The problem is that white people see racism as conscious hate, when racism is bigger than that. Racism is a complex system of social and political levers and pulleys set up generations ago to continue working on the behalf of whites at other people’s expense, whether whites know/like it or not. Racism is an insidious cultural disease. It is so insidious that it doesn’t care if you are a white person who likes black people; it’s still going to find a way to infect how you deal with people who don’t look like you. Yes, racism looks like hate, but hate is just one manifestation. Privilege is another. Access is another. Ignorance is another. Apathy is another. And so on. So while I agree with people who say no one is born racist, it remains a powerful system that we’re immediately born into. It’s like being born into air: you take it in as soon as you breathe. It’s not a cold that you can get over. There is no anti-racist certification class. It’s a set of socioeconomic traps and cultural values that are fired up every time we interact with the world. It is a thing you have to keep scooping out of the boat of your life to keep from drowning in it. I know it’s hard work, but it’s the price you pay for owning everything.

THAT’S THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR OWNING EVERYTHING

this is a super important explanation to think about whenever you feel like telling someone that something isn’t racist because you don’t hate x person.

i’m so over facebook but i still feel the need to go on there every once and a while and post something like I EXIST AND AM LEADING AN EXCITING LIFE AND ALSO HAVING OPINIONS ABOUT IMPORTANT EVENTS AND BEING COOL IN GENERAL because there are people i know who don’t use any other social media so that’s all they see of me? and i still feel the need to prove something? but idk the whole thing feels like an empty performance
