Your last paragraph exactly sums up this site and why the SJWs of the world, while arguably well intentioned, really shit the bed on the execution.

Maybe I’m in the minority here... and I’m white, and a woman... but I don’t care about what someone puts on their social media. “Sharing” or pushing “like” doesn’t mean anything. How is someone putting their time in and challenging the status quo is meaningful to me!

It’s extremely telling to me that no one has responded to you here.  We can see VERY clearly where the navel-gazing is coming from and it is completely worthless.  People are dying.  Fucking hell.  Lecture about fucking pronouns LATER.

It is a uniquely white privilege to be able to write a fucking essay policing the policing of white women to other white women BY a white woman when people are literally dying in the street right now.

Jesus fucking christ, sometimes allies are imperfect, and that isn’t ideal!  But right now THE WAR IS LITERALLY Read more

The (white lady) friends I know who are posting are feeling really fucked up and upset about things, and are trying their best to deal with it in at least some way. Knowing them, it doesn’t feel performative. It feels like this is one way they are channeling their grief and rage. I posted some stuff too, because I am Read more

This sort of circular firing squad shit only works if you’re very invested in strangers and distant acquaintances perceiving you as woke. But in reality, you can aspire to be not 100% racist trash, take concrete steps to work towards that, help your community, and NOT EVER advertise that on social media. Imagine that. Read more

I’m so glad y’all got in touch with Alice M/ u/Ebbie45 for this post. That woman is a goddamn national treasure and has probably saved literally hundreds of lives via reddit.

Gottlieb. *rolls eyes* I guess I have a follow up question with long, personal context.

Me: I’ll be 32 soon. I’ve called off 2 engagements and an additional near-engagement (marriage was agreed to, timing was not yet determined). The last relationship ended in November when I ended it. He is a smart, funny, loyal, Read more

I agree with most of your sentiment above. However, there’s a lot of genuine reflection online - but a lot of oneupmanship too. I also believe anybody should be free to tell a story - I disagree with your comment that a white person cannot tell the story. Brown people should be able to tell their stories. But we Read more

It was a great and gripping read. Both I (a brown immigrant who could relate to *parts* of the novel - the dislocation of leaving your home, the alienation, the confusion, the constant messages about America being the promised land — but obviously not the trauma of immediate dislocation from your homes due to a cartel Read more

It’s a recruitment tactic: actual neo-Nazis and white supremacists start by pushing people online to be “edgy” and “ironic,” then bullying those who complain about it as “weak/uncool/un-manly.” From there, it’s just a matter of cranking up the rhetoric over time until you’ve created a new group of true believers.
