Quick Thoughts: The Thing About Being a Victim – BROTHA WOLF
Even though there are tons of proof of racism against POC, there are people who think the real victims are whites who actually have privileges given to them that everyone else don’t have. As such, any group or movement out to challenge racism is met with outrage. The same goes with sexism and misogyny. Feminists are seen as the true enemies while men are seen as the real victims. It’s the same story with other marginalized groups. In the end, some people think that the most oppressed group in America are straight, Christian white males.
Again, I’m not saying that there haven’t been victims who are straight, white, Christian, men or all four. But standing up to injustice against people who are none of these is not an assault against them just because of what they are, but it’s a call for accountability and responsibility to make things better for us all, not just for some.
Got white fragility?
Got white supremacy?
