i don't believe for a second that i would have generated nearly as much attention outside my immediate scope of friends, if I were even a few shades darker. If I were slightly less polite, or had a reputation for being curt instead of an airheaded creampuff.
i'm glad if this whole thing makes people more aware and have a serious self reflection about their own ingrained racist behavior, but don't forget that queer black and dark brown folk have been yelling for a long time before me.
@popstar this is exactly why I've decided to be more vocal lately.
I realized that when I'm that loud person, no one pushed back. But Deni and all of them were getting shit for the exact same things.
So. I'll be loud. Because I can be an asshole.
@popstar gosh I have so many thoughts on this
