There's a movie coming out about a white man that pretends to be a black woman to get a scholarship for his kids to go to private school and uh.....i dunno i don't have much to say about it I'm just tired.
I will not be saying the name of what this movie is. Instead I will plug my patreon of an actual POC who writes stories about POC that aren't disrespectful and shitty.
Have a BLESSED day y'all.
When they're not fantasizing about the next way they want to abuse women and minorities, bigoted cishet white people spend their time convincing themselves that they're the real victims of the people they brutalize the most.
Bigots painted themselves as the victims of Native Americans when they stole the land that is now the U.S. Bigots said they were the victims when slaves and the white people with consciences wanted to end chattel slavery. Bigots were the victims of "rudeness" and "incivility" when people condemned Jim Crow. A huge fraction of the U.S. opposed the Civil Rights Act on the basis that it deprived them of their "freedom" (to abuse people).
@eightbitsamurai Bigots say they're victims when trans folks want to use the bathroom. Bigots say they're the victims of black and indigenous people asking politely to not be extra-judicially executed by the state. They make bumper stickers and t-shirts opposing the idea that brown children shouldn't get gunned down by cops. Now they're painting themselves as the victims of the most feeble attempts to fix the horrifying damage they've supported for hundreds of years. Of course.
@eightbitsamurai All that to say, bigots and the centrists that enable them are numerous, boring, and utterly predictable. Their cheap white whine has always been disgusting, and we've gotten this far despite the fact that they never stop producing it. This movie is as existentially irrelevant as all of their previous stances. May it not take up a scintilla of space in your mind. 🧡
