Anybody wanna come collect this stupid hoe and explain to her the whole fucking point of the post that she missed…
and dont misunderstand, I completely understood the point of your post. Hence the use of the words “redundant, superfluous, etc.” I understood the point, but felt the use of extra labels was un-needed since none of those things is in direct correlation to being white. I feel “white people” speaks for itself. Lots of white people disagree and I have seen many white queers, white Jews, etc use the very same argument ..that because they are “queer” or “Jewish” or whatever…that they lack white privilege. They dont. I am of mixed ethnic heritage and I have white privilege. But I dont play oppression Olympics. White privilege is the privilege that comes along with being white….the pain that comes along with being Jewish, queer, trans, etc…is a whole different issue that I feel needs to be dealt with separately.
The point of the fucking post was that even if you are at certain intersections of oppression, that does not negate your white privilege.
This is not a hard concept to understand. In fact, it’s not even far off from what you are saying here. The original post was addressing white people who derail discussions of race with statements about “but what about my experiences as a lesbian/gay/Jewish person” when those derailments (Like any derailment, like the derailment you are making) DO NOT BELONG.
THIS IS A VERY SIMPLE CONVERSATION. YOU COMPLETELY MISSED IT AND SHOULD SHOW YOURSELF THE DOOR.
