Irrational White Fear towards people of color has plagued society for some time now and continues to remain perennial. Since its inception here in America, White Fear has contributed to:
Genocide, Enslavement, Indoctrination, Internment, Racial Segregation, Redlining, Ghettoization, Assassinations, an Unequal Justice System, Criminalization, Underfunded School Systems, Discrimination, Gentrification, Islamophobia, Police Brutality, etc.
Why does it continue to influence our county’s future? Our current President is a direct reflection of just how relevant White Fear remains. And it’s always been deeper than building a wall and being tougher on immigration. Some 𝘮𝘪𝘴𝘨𝘶𝘪𝘥𝘦𝘥 white Americans feel like they’re losing “their” country. It’s been predicted that by the year 2044 whites will become a minority. This Irrational Fear has influenced unfavorable laws and policies that directly impact people of color.
The reality of the matter is that white society has always put themselves in a position to protect what they have...but what are they really protecting? And does it come at the expense of a truly unified America? || written by: darius_north || photographer: @yvettechau 🐐
.... I'm guessing that some of y'all are new but I still want to ask,why would we in this context say that sexuality is a preference?That doesn't make any sense.The "preferences" being discussed is rooted in colorism and the original post was just a lady saying she wasn't going to explain it anymore.Sexuality was not on the chopping block.
I'm also guessing that some of y'all don't know what colorism is and I would direct you to For Harriet's channel because she discusses the topic well.I've typed multiple paragraphs on colorism and I'm I'm the same boat with the original poster I'm not going to say the same thing over and over for people who just don't care.......The last slide is the smallest insight I can give you on what colorism is.The degragation of black(mostly dark skin) women done by people who either 1 are self hating or 2 have been taught or believe that lightness is inherently more beautiful or desirable.

it has come to my attention that a popular online creator with a huge following has participated in harmful and racist acts. giving privileged, rich, white girls fame after they’ve proven PUBLICLY that they don’t respect the hardships of black people. yikes! ...this is really you’re queen? it’s not okay to just forget about something like this, especially since ava has never publicly apologized for this. sick & disgusting acts shouldn’t be overshadowed by “fame.” hopefully by posting this, ava will realize how wrong this was and wholeheartedly apologize to the marginalized groups this was directed at.
[Do not repost without giving credit]. These are The Forgotten Eritrean refugees who have been living in miserable refugee camps since 1967. These are the refugees that named my documentary. They told me to go back to America to let people know that they have been forgotten. They humbly said “we’re not asking for much, we just want to be remembered”. It hurts my heart to see the pain they endured all their lives. Eritreans are so resilient and brave. God bless their souls. I will help them until the day I die.
