lizzingwithlemon asked: Could you explain what's the issue with macklemore?
A couple of months ago, Jamie Foxx was attacked on Twitter with racial slurs and death threats for coming to an award show dressed in a Trayvon Martin t-shirt but everyone is currently praising Macklemore, a white man, for dedicating his award to Trayvon Martin.
Bill O’Reilly even had the audacity to call Jamie Foxx “racist” for wearing the Trayvon Martin shirt.
Our problems as POC aren’t real until a white person like Macklemore voices their opinion on the issue, let a POC voice their opinion on the issues and struggles they encounter, they’re labeled as a “reverse racist” and “delusional” -Grace
White privilege is being able to say that the media puts race into everything in order to distract us from “real” issues. It’s saying that Renisha McBride and Trayvon Martin and so many other people died for a cause completely unrelated to race.
It’s being able to see…
I recently mentioned a street harassment incident (they occur often, 10-75 times a week for over 20 years now) on Twitter, and I received a plethora of ignorant responses. I realized that these responses are common, so I documented them here.
1) "Gosh, where do YOU live?"
HAPPY hump day 😊
