Saying 'white people' is talking about them as a whole. If someone said PoC are 'insert insult' then a lot of us would be offended. Its the same thing.
There is a difference between talking about every single white person on the planet and making a broad generalization about a pattern found in the majority in the group.
I thought I was the only one who felt my heartbeat getting slower and breathing heavier and slower too. It was pretty scary, tbh.
Right? Lord bless people who wake up with the devil riding them and manage to not burst into tears every time it happens. I could never.
light show going on behind your eyes = synesthesia. Welcome to every waking moment for someone who has color/sound synesthesia, and audio/visual synesthesia :p many people can experience color/sound synesthesia (or others) at points in their life though for some its a constant occurrence.
I’ve been reading about that and wow. It’s really interesting! I can’t recall it happening before that night, but then, I generally have my eyes open. I wanna try with different songs and see what happens.
HI! You should look up synesthesia, particularly sound to color synesthesia, because the description you gave on that "relaxing tunes" post sounded like you could have it, especially if you've noticed it before. You may not have it, but it's pretty cool to read about anyway. Just fyi.
I’ve been checking it out and… whoa. That’s really interesting! I want to test it by listening to that song again to be sure it’s not a fluke, but it freaked me out too much. Maybe in the daylight hours, lol.
As a white-passing girl who grew up in whiteyville u.s.a. with cultural-denying parents, thank you for having a blog I can watch to help me be aware of my own prejudices and privileges. I appreciate the chance to sit back and learn. Thanks for doing what you do <3
Are you actually flawless, awesome, informative, and amazing? HINT: the only acceptable answer is yes in all caps.
[omg it was so hard to type that out because it’s like… i just… idek. I can’t! Also I know that the only thing I am allowed to say is yes or no, so this disclaimer shouldn’t be here, but… I TRIED OKAY]
[And thank yooou ♥]
Well I can't reblog anything because tumblr is... stupid. But I know the context of what you wrote, I read the post. I don't look foolish, and I can put my two cents where ever I like.
You’re right, you can. Just don’t get mad when you get people laying into your ass for it because you doing what you want is more important than respecting a simple ass request.
And actually, you made it very clear that you don’t know the context of that post, since the context of it isn’t in the post itself. Wanna try again?
Like I said. You look foolish as hell, and like an entitled little brat to boot. If “not every post is for you” and “if a post says “reblog if you are a PoC, that’s your cue to NOT reblog it” is enough to get you pissy, then that’s exactly what you are.
But please, continue getting mouthy on a post when you don’t even know why I made it in the first place.
These bullshitters can shut up. None of us have any right to expect any of you to put your necks out like that. Friends still hurt each other and when stuff like privilege and oppression systems are involved, the chances are even higher. Besides, any white person who's friends with you should value the friendship high enough to research and learn on our own so that you don't have to expose yourself to this shit. None of us are five anymore. It's time my people started acting like it.
omnomlemons ran away
Oh wow. I’m not even surprised.
That seems to be the instant solution.
