“You didn’t love her. You just didn’t want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe she was good for your ego. Or maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life, but you didn’t love her, because you don’t destroy the person that you love.” — Callie Torres, ‘The Heart of the Matter’ (via rainydaysandblankets)
What’s hilarious is that nowhere in that post did I say all white people.
I addressed the group of people in general, of course not every white person acts like that or has that attitude, but the same could be said for every person of color when racist stereotypes are used to portray them in the media, but where is anon when that’s happening? Don’t worry, I’ll wait.
You don’t get to be a racist piece of shit that degrades people of color on the regular, and then say that they should not be so hostile toward you and that they’d earn your respect if they were nice to you. No oppressed peoples should ever have to show kindness to their oppressor. If you can’t give someone respect based on their being a fellow human being, the most basic of all things, then you don’t deserve their kindness.
You can’t stand on someone’s neck and tell them to scream more quietly, more politely.
