Repost from @namuhstradamus | dear #caucasian people, it is #time to use your #privilege, whether you believe you have it or not. i know how jarring it may be to hear a non-caucasian or maybe even anyone even say the words ‘#whitepeople’ as it can take on a pejorative connotation; that’s fine. i get that. this isn’t always comfortable to have to say but that doesn’t make it any less true, necessary or timely. before i get started fully i want to #beclear this is for all of my caucasian americans. to my #friends, my #foes, to my #colleagues, my #contemporaries & my #competitors alike. to the professional #athlete/s & the #peewee coaches. to my family members of all hues. from #latenight hosts to #news anchors, #faith leaders to #police officers. school #teachers to #smallbusiness owners & service workers. for allies & detractors, everyone. i really shouldn’t have to waste my word count on how #donaldtrump has be trying to ‘bring us together’ around dividing us into sides. it’s not (or shouldn’t be) necessary to explain the ways in which his rhetoric (via speeches at rallies, non-stop tweets & numerous pieces of policy) has sought to elevate the discourse to just beneath he floorboards. there is more than enough coverage on all of that; but what this #president has done to you (whether you voted for him or not) is put you into an awkward position that either requires your vocalizing your opposition to separate yourself or gleefully accepts your consent by only requiring you do nothing.
yes, caucasian people your trial subscription to #trump’s america is over. you have to opt-out or start paying for it because #trustme you most certainly will pay for it, dearly.
