if you reblog something from a poc, be prepared to handle the garbage that you’ll be potentially sending our way. being “enlightened” and wanting to spread your ~newfound knowledge~ is only half the job.
This. The hate we get isn’t coming from our followers.
And another thing I just realized: when allies reblog our stuff and then their followers reblog it and add a ton of racist commentary, how come I never see the ally jumping into the discussion? Are they afraid of alienating their white friends? Is their follower count more important to them?
Just one of the reasons why there are very few people I consider an ally. When it comes down to it, they’ll jump off the boat at the first sign of turbulence and leave us all to sink.
I see it once in a while, but most of the time people who are allies will have already cut off the people they were following that would pull shit like that. Like a bunch of new followers I had at one point were ragging on their followers for pulling shit.
But once they were canned, it was no longer a problem there…the rest end up unfollowing at some point.
yup. white folks bet not be reblargin if they aint gon come collect. we see you.
