And you have a lot work to do to prove you’re not all hypocrites.
This is not the time to appeal to minorities and marginalized communities to “come together in unity” with white people right now.That was Hillary Clinton’s message, and even though she had the track record and the experience and the wherewithal to make it happen—you passed on it.Instead you chose the guy who’s entire resume is about supremacy and privilege, whose entire campaign was about the fear of the other (the other in this case, being anyone not white, straight, and Christian).You chose the guy endorsed by the KKK.You did. You need to understand this. Oppressed people aren’t obliged to make nice with their oppressors. The bullied don’t owe anything to the bullies. Victims don’t have to make their assailants feel better. Young children of color aren’t responsible to educate racist children—or their parents.
