Jan 28 – Message from a Brown Guy, “Quit Always Bitching White Privileged.”

So I’m taking this online certification for journalism, and as someone who’s got some pretty deeply liberal beliefs (also as a sarcastic asshole, I feel like I need to remind y’all from time to time), I find the clear-cut progressive agenda for some of my professors extremely problematic.

Look, speaking as someone of color, you can’t always denounce every single counterargument as “white privilege”. Especially if it ain’t even even about privilege. That’s the type of shit that got us into this mess in the first place. How tf could y’all not realize that? Cis white males have feelings too!

You can’t just “Thought Police” your way into creating a better world. It’s incredibly short-sighted.

Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate all the white people who are down with the cause, but I also sympathize with those that feel like they always gotta be on the defensive. Because it don’t gotta be like that.
