Just some tweets regarding Kim K’s race essay. I’m embarrassed to say but when I first read it, I was like “aw wow Kim is realizing it!” But then I started to think, why was I rewarding her for “kinda trying to get it”? Why do we reward mediocre white “allys” for trying to understand instead of challenging their privilege continuously? Why is it that white people or white passing people only acknowledge racism when it’s personal? Why is it something that is only given thought when it hits home? That only shows the lack of empathy. That only shows us, PoC that white people do not see us as human until they “get to know us” even with dating Kanye, someone who constantly speaks out on this she didn’t see it until giving birth to a black baby. It’s a damn shame. White people do better.
