So non-White people don’t have the ability to simultaneously educate and brainstorm? Answering questions is really so difficult, despite that it’s smarter to seek information from a primary source like someone going through it, that it occupies all the time and energy of the oppressed to the point that the surrounding conditions cannot be analyzed for solutions. And instead of asking so as to be proactive in dismantling privilege, the privileged should just chill out racking up an assortment of stats on non-White people and not worry about it until given the order to act.

why is the onus on non white folx to educate white folx - while simultaneously having to navigate the very systems of oppression that white folx benefit from? like damn - I gotta deal with supremacy and then spend the energy I have left over to educate those complicit in my oppression? That’s taking on a lot of responsibility - I’d rather white folx go out and read the books and countless other materials that PoC have ALREADY created and let PoC continue to educate ourselves/our communities which - from time to time - does intersect with white folx and folx who benefit from privilege period.

I don’t understand this pervasive “it’s not my job to educate you” attitude. I don’t think black ppl need to be walking encyclopedias, educating white ppl as we walk and breath and exist, BUT it’s silly to think that the vast majority of ppl will self educate themselves, when someone calls them out. Briefly explaining problematic behavior should be standard if you wanna call ppl out. Or don’t call ppl out.

again for you in the back 

like damn - I gotta deal with supremacy and then spend the energy I have left over to educate those complicit in my oppression? That’s taking on a lot of responsibility - I’d rather white folx go out and read the books and countless other materials that PoC have ALREADY created and let PoC continue to educate ourselves/our communities which - from time to time - does intersect with white folx and folx who benefit from privilege period.

IT’S VERY DIFFICULT TO EDUCATE A WILLFULLY IGNORANT PERSON ON SYSTEMATIC RACISM AND ENSLAVEMENT.

So hard. The MAJORITY of the time they have a problem accepting that they’ll have to give up the illusion that they don’t have privilege and they like that security.

You can’t break through that wall unless they WANT to.

It’s not our fault for shit.

Throughout History, Black Women Have fought and died defending our people from Invaders and Conquerors. It is very important we learn about their role in history because Many of us are under the impression that women didn’t fight in our struggle but this is false. We need to teach our children and even ourselves about warriors such as Yaa Asantewaa of Ghana and Queen MuhMusa of East Africa, and so many more who gave their lives for our People.  Never Forget The Contributions of our Warrior Queens.

"A 19-year-old Chicago teen may one day hold the key to curing colon cancer.
If his previous successes are any indication, Keven Stonewall is well on his way to becoming the kind of scientist who leaves a lasting impact in the realm of cancer research.

In his senior year of high school, this young man from the city’s South Side was already working on a potential colon cancer vaccine at a Rush University lab, DNAInfo reports. “My friends, family members have died from cancer,” Stonewall said in a VNM video. “A lot of people are impacted by cancer. So I felt it was my role to step up and do something about it.”

At first, his friends mocked his dedication to science. When they were out on vacation, he was holed up in his lab. “I was one of the few kids who were engaged,” Stonewall said. “At first they were making fun of me, like ‘Come on man, why you want to be in the lab all day?’””
