Many White liberals love or are White supremacists. They’ll claim it’s about freeze peach and duh bait but that’s because they’re bitchmade and can’t admit they simply like* that ideology. Even Bannon straight up admits what he’s about. The White liberal can’t even do that.
And ones who don’t like it think it’s a game w/o consequences b/c they do not care what happens to PoC, don’t study history to see repeating patterns & think “owning” or “winning a debate” against a supremacist is the “goal,” versus actual survival, decolonization, liberation.
Oh & White supremacists aren’t debating. They’re “increasing their territory.” And White liberals facilitate it. It’s not about “debate” for White supremacists. They simply need as many mics in as many ways possible, whatsoever. That is what the history that so many ignore shows.
Because liberalism posits White supremacy as physical violence & uneducated (hi, classism) posturing and extremism, won’t allow many Whites to consider media, textbooks, standardized tests, local/state laws etc, the mundane and “polite” things to be influenced by White supremacy.
This is why they can pretend that PoC are ignorant and never experience anything in relation to White supremacy (like...the ignorance of this stance) and thereby need constant exposure through bad faith “debate” where violent dehumanizing rhetoric is “fairness.”
Someone using a calm demeanor to advocate genocide and oppression isn’t “more polite” and “less violent” than someone oppressed saying “fuck White supremacy” just because they cursed. Grow the fuck up. This “genteel” performance of Whiteness is utterly willfully dense.
Dishonest “both sides” rhetoric desires that ignore power dynamics, capital and history are willfully ignorant and embarrassing from ridiculous White liberal journos and “scholars” #onhere.

Nothing irritates me more than people who compare small amounts of disposable income on small pleasures or necessities to actual wealth and capital. It’s so ugly and classist not to mention utterly ridiculous.
Ol “if you didn’t buy sunglasses then you could be a homeowner” ass bitches. Shut the fuck up you bloody airhead. LOL.
“I don’t see [insert White CEO with White and male privilege, generational wealth, access to venture capital, tutors their whole life, access to elite higher ed even if they leave early] wearing Jordans so clearly their unethically made loafers 5X the cost are okay” ass hoes.

#IfSocialMediaDisappeared then people could stop pretending like prior to social media everyone were “public conversationalists” dying for conversation with “everyone” on earth at all times because that never fucking happened prior to social media. The myth could finally die.
It’s simply that some people never had to respect a “no” (e.g. someone deciding not to engage; muting; blocking) prior to social media, and they still don’t offline. Still. They get angry about being blocked because they feel entitled to engagement 24/7.

Asking tons of questions about the hurricane and expecting people in the target zone to assuage your external fears...isn't helpful to us.
It's truly exhausting dealing with the mechanics of other people's "compassion," when it's simply time + emotional labor for me.
I wish people knew how to express care without a barrage of inexperienced unsolicited advice + endless curiosity questions to be answered.
