How to use your white privilege
If the “passing privilege” person is looking at this blog, this is one thing you can do, if you’re up to it.
Reblogging for excellence.
More passing people, and people who recognize white privilege should do this
for the white folk who ask “but what am i supposed to do about all of this”
soooooooosososososo so good.
WHITE PASSING/WHITE PEOPLE PLEASE WATCH THIS IF YOU EVER WERE GONNA WATCH ANYTHING WATCH THIS.
Just wanna state that I believe being hard femme also means using your privileges (whatever they may be) and your ability to be hard badass femmes to smash down on oppression just like this.
YES YES YES YES I’M FUCKING CRYING ALL OF THIS YES THANK YOU.
I just shared this with my husband (who is white).
The story also reminded me of when I went to the West Hollywood Agent Provocateur with my friend Elisabeth Dale (author, breast expert, and also a white woman). The two white sales staff bent over backwards to entertain her, and when she purchased a very expensive pair of sunglasses, didn’t even blink.
However, when I went to purchase a $20 book, they needed to see my ID and verify that I was who I said I was.
Racism is real, y’all.
White privilege powers activate! Call people out on their racist shit, y’all. That also goes for calling out misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, etc. The preferred class shouldn’t have more of a say on the issues of the oppressed class, but the reality is that they do.
