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.
