You’re Not Being “Oppressed”

This is what anyone who claims "reverse racism" will understand once they recognize and educate themselves about white privilege. Readings for Diversity and Social Justice is a phenomenal book that explains the multiple dimensions of oppressions, and the companion text, Teachings for Diversity and Social Justice, explains the theoretical framework of anti-oppressive social justice education.

This infuriates me!!! White Christians will get mad if you display "black Jesus" because you're erasing his actual race in order for you to relate to it more. When they're doing the exact same thing!!!! They think Jesus was a good person, therefore he must be white because they can't relate to people of color. It's one of the most blunt examples of white privilege I can think of and it makes me sick!!

Some victims were vulnerable people who were randomly chosen to be harassed in order to serve as an example to keep the rest of their neighborhood in line. In short, this could potentially happen to YOU...if you permit gangstalking to continue.

There is no such thing as reverse racism. Racism is a systematic institution. As people of color it is impossible to be racist because we do not stand to benefit from such a system.
