Today is Racist Fuckery (10.20.14): At yesterday’s protest outside the St Louis Rams game, racist fans got rowdy and physical. Who got arrested? Two of the protesters, of course. Mike Brown means we have to fight back. #staywoke

How can the same person say that they don’t like elitist attitudes, when earlier they said that there’s no such thing as food deserts and that people just have “excuses”?

Q

smallswingshoes asked:

I was thinking about how you said that one can't use their privilege in activism, but I was wondering about the idea of using one's privilege to amplify the voices of marginalized people? Like basically going "hey stop looking to me for answers, listen to this person's experience and their thoughts."

Hm, okay this topic always needs clarification. It feels like a semantics issue to me. White people should be using the space they already have to be combating white supremacy. E.g, talking to their white coworkers, speaking up in organizations you’re a part of, referring and deferring to POC, etc.

What I think Dion is saying, emphasize on the think, is that using white privilege to combat white supremacy is non-sensical. “They’ll never believe a person of color so I’m going to use my advantage of being white to speak for them” is fucked up. Does this make sense?
