Whiteness always wants the people it habitually offends to take into consideration their feelings, their opinions, and their perspective on our suffering and forget all the things that it’s done to us. You did a great job of describing White apathy, White Amnesia, and White face. Whiteness doesn’t get to tell me to be nice after it has kicked me ass since I arrived on this earth, and then tell me to forget it. It’s like your domestic violence abuser telling you to forget he/she has beat the shit out of ya, then turns around, offers ya psychotherapy, expects ya to be nice to them through it all, and EXPECTS forgiveness.
I just don’t have any words for the arrogance and entitlements anymore. I just talk about it as much as I can. Keep talking about it Sis!
