Right. So, if you understand the difference, you should understand that you are not racially oppressed. You may be discriminated against but you do not experience a systematic oppression. You will never experience a system that tells you (and everyone around you) from birth to hate you because of the amount of melanin you have; a system uses every tool to keep you on bottom.
To be an ally, to get people to work with you, you have to recognize your privilege and be understanding of people’s anger. This is centuries of violence and oppression on PoC’s shoulders that is being expressed. You have gotta understand that people will question you because of your privilege. People will be iffy because of their actual experiences. Even if you arent racist, you are apart of the group that participates in these acts. Instead of condemning the anger of PoC, collect other white people who are being racist. Briana doesn’t hate white people. She’s not being racist. She hates the system of whiteness and the fact that white people who commit violent acts aint bein checked for it. To be an ally, you have got to be quiet and let this anger be expressed.
