mulling over the responses to my rhetorical questions
August 22, 2012
Well, first, they were rhetorical questions, so I’m not sure why I got any responses…
But the responses I got…
White people being incredulous that someone might think they were racist or appropriative for getting a tattoo or doing yoga or travelling.
And even more aghast that maybe they might need to stop. (although, I never said that or even implied it).
As many people have pointed out, white people are so used to doing whatever the fuck they want with little consequence that you even imply that there might be a boundary they shouldn’t cross (or even just asking to think about it), and they’ll be after you like, well, white people in every poc country ever.
White people: ridiculous and forever proving the point.
