Sorry, I am not your white person

Self dispatched race relations ambassadors who want to guilt their privileged allies to de-escalate activism efforts to make space for passive centrist wankery so long as it’s led by spokepeople of color can stick their identity politics up their cap and gowns. Really. These academic arguments are socially engineered to divide the proletariat and deflect energies from converging on the racists with real power.

Systemic racism is not remedied by redistributing oppression equally. We’re already seeing cries of “white privilege” when non-black criminals are insufficiently brutalized. Targeting your fellow peons perpetuates the American misconception that progressive ideals eventually win over the power structure. If you must, scold the public at large, not your already activated comrades. Just because I have a sense of social responsibility doesn’t mean I’m going to be shamed into boosting attendance at your liberal reformist symposiums.
