…yet totally doesn’t want to acknowledge their privilege and blatant racism? & then quotes MLK Jr at people?
That is the most whitesplaining bullshit I have read in a while.
Unfortunately, at this point, MLK Jr’s legacy has been co-opted by racist white supremacist whitesplainers and used to shout us down, tell us how to go about our emancipation and our culture, how to erroneously navigate a white supremacist society and fight against it, and to ultimately shut us up.
All mentions of MLK Jr. immediately makes me see what the person is really saying-“Stop acting uppity. Act like how white history told me MLK Jr. acted, which is a supremacist ploy wrapped up in hokey pacifist bullshit to trick you into not doing what really gets you your rights, and instead castrates you from your anger and your power. Do not challenge me. Do no fight my supremacist culture.”
