"I want every white person in this room, who would be happy to be treated as this society in general treats our citizens, our black citizens. If you as a white person would be happy to receive the same treatment that our black citizens do in this society - please stand! - You didn't understand the directions. If you white folks want to be treated the way blacks are in this society - stand! - Nobody is standing here. That says very plainly that you know what's happening. You know you don't want it for you. I want to know why you are so willing to accept it or to allow it to happen for others." - #JaneElliot Old classic, worthy of revisiting. Since we prefer to hear it from our in group/aspirational group. Black lives.............matter. Disagree?
“...you know what's happening. You know you don't want it for you.” -#JaneElliot (see next post for a lesson in Feigned Obliviousness Detection 101) You’re treating me like a f*cking Black person! (They’re not) Whoa hey! I’m a white man here fellas. I know very well that we have different practices based on race- Not only do i know you often act as race soldiers, Not only am i fine with it, I’m actively, openly try to use it to my advantage. Why is my privilege not working? (it is) What I’m experiencing right now is so removed from my reality and the reality of my social group that I literally cannot believe this is happening, to me. So, it only really matters to me because it’s now happening to me. They know. They’ve always known.•

That we have the time, freedom, funds, transportation, health, supplies, support system, energy and access to spaces is in itself, a privilege. • With privilege comes responsibility. Never stop considering and intentionally supporting those who are marginalized. All of them. Everywhere.
