You’re right completely. As a white dude, white people need to shut the hell up when it comes to race and just listen and leave that ego at the door. If it’s not you, you don’t need to explain that it’s not you and don’t get offended so easily. Terms like white privilege and you views on race not holding the weight you want to hold used to irk me and I’m ashamed to say it. You can call it ignorance, entitlement, stupidity etc. All valid ways to look at it.And I’ll just go ahead and say it. If someone gets mad then they do. If you’re white you have absolutely ZERO say on a conversation about race. NONE, NADA. You may sit back and watch but that’s it. No need to comment, say your piece, nothing. white men think they have say in many things that have nothing to do with them.
For me though personally, NT really got me more informed on things off the content on here. Especially when it comes to things like white supremacy and race and what have you. It’s legit good solid information that’s posted in the threads on here at times.
The information and knowledge is out there, it’s what you do with it, how open and receptive you are to it and will you listen to it. And the information and knowledge isn’t going to be watered down to your comfort zone and it shouldn’t be.
