I call these types of POCs those passing as White. They may be brown, but their ideologies are lily White — White Supremacy with a healthy slathering of White Privilege. I don’t like them being lumped in with Black people. I do it from time to time, but every time I do, I feel uncomfortable. I know we aren’t a monolith, and I know they rarely stand with us. We are their foot stools. People like Tyne give no fucks about the lives sacrificed so she and her family could come here to be whatever in the hell she was before her snitch-gone-wrong happened.
I don’t feel sorry for her, or any woman who claims to be a feminist attempting to put us Black women in our places. If they aren’t going to help us, at least don’t do anymore harm to us. Tyne is nothing more than a bigoted, self-righteous White woman in Brown skin.
We can’t eat, can’t sit, can’t drive, can’t work, can’t travel, can’t shop, can’t vacation, can’t do anything without persecution from Whiteness (which includes those who pass as White). Hopefully we can finally start having real dialogues about the race issues among the races. Some people are people of color when it’s suitable for them. We need to call their behavior out and take our cover back. If they act on behalf of Whiteness, they need to also take the title. Being called a POC gives them a privilege they shouldn’t have. Kind of like double dipping so to speak.
