Also just to be clear: Anna is an unfortunate scenario, but not an isolated outlier. White people, please don't use this as an excuse to pay yourselves on the back and feel good about demonizing "the racist one." This kind of situation is what inevitably arises when one refuses to counter one's own reactionary tendencies, self-crit, and actively work toward undoing those tendencies and the effects they've had.

"In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist—we must be anti-racist."

Quote is by Angela Davis, btw. Character limit wouldn't lemme say it

@columbidae like ive seen talk about those shitheads for a while, and i didnt say anything bc i was like "well its not my problem, dont get involved, plus i dont have anything to say"
when in fact, it is my problem, because that shit will continue especially if no one says anything. if i dont say anything against it then i am saying more and being ok with the shit that comes out of their mouths.
