Words from my friend Kimberly Ann:
“When a WHITE person tells a person of color to stop being so obsessed with racism …
they are providing us all with a vital clue.
What they are saying is that YOU are lying.
They are calling you a liar.
They do not see your reality, so it does not exist. I truly believe that THAT is the epitome of arrogance in our disgusting and barbaric culture of American white supremacy. Sure, they may word it as respectfully as, “you’re a liar” can be worded. The presentation may sound good.
It may sound as if they are just trying to keep the peace and they just hate to see you so upset all the time. But they or their subconscious, it really doesn’t matter which, are the LIARS because the only thing they are doing is desperately protecting their “cute tender” and very much white-centric feelings at the expense of upholding their own personal beliefs which, in large numbers, and over time, are the larger than life monster that we call, The American System of Racial Oppression.”- Kimberly Ann
