That white privilege post bugged me. It's always the same thing- I am aware of my white privilege, I acknowledge it but no matter what it is always shoved in my face. I didn't choose to be white privileged, so can it stop being shoved in my face?
People don’t ask to be born a different race than white, and yet every day they suffer because of it. You have to understand that no matter how frustrated you are because of these kinds of posts, you will never face the kind of pain PoC face just by existing.
Think about it. Michael Brown was executed just for being black. There is no post anyone could make on a website that amounts to that kind of thing.
I understand that sometimes you can feel guilty because of posts like that, though you may try to be aware of your internalized racism and privilege. If you are actively trying to be better and acknowledge these things, you needn’t feel guilty. Like you said, you didn’t exactly ask for society to suck so much. But you benefit from it all the same. It’s not your fault, but if you do nothing about it, it is. If you do fight against it, you’re helping in your own way.
If you are doing what you can to fight against racism, those kinds of posts wouldn’t bother you. Or at least they shouldn’t. You’d understand that your frustration would never amount to the fear and pain of self-loathing almost all PoC face. You’d understand that 11 Things White People Need to Stop Saying to Black People Immediately is hardly something to be angry about. Be angry over injustice, not posts about white people being idiots.
