All white people are racists


First, learn what racism is, and what it’s not. I need white people to understand that all white people are racist.

Admit it, and let’s move onto the business of repairing and healing the country. We can’t do it without you.

Yes my dears, all white people are racists. All. Of. Them.

Here is where you stop to cry, clutch your pearls, rant and rave aloud to tell me how wrong I am, and to tell me not all white people.

I’m doing reverse racism (there’s no such thing as reverse racism), and you’re ready to do tit for tat with me and every black person on the internet (because you’re too afraid to say this nonsense in person) on how terrible black people are.

I have [fill in the blank white person savior activity here], so I know I’m not racist. I don’t say the N-word; I go to church with black people, and I even go to lunch with the black lady/guy from my job. I have a biracial child. I date black women/men.

My husband/wife is black. I work in an all black [fill in the blank setting]. I am not racist. I’m liberal. I voted for Hillary. I use #BlackLivesMatter hashtags. I have a black friend (that I never talk to about race).

I know. I’ve heard it all already, honey. I know. You are a product of your racist American environment.

You are racist love, but it’s okay to admit it. I’m ready for you to admit it so that we can move on to bigger things. You denying the obvious stalls the long road to healing. Take a moment to sit with this new/old revelation. Your racism is a product of nurturing and nature. Own it.

You can’t help you were born to racist parents, who were raised in a white supremacist system.

You can help with tearing down the racist systems and structures that support you and kill me and my sons based on flawed science crafted by flawed white and European people. White people admitting they are racist is necessary for those individuals desiring to do something right now.

If you can’t do that, I can’t rock with you. I can’t walk with you. I can’t talk with you. I can’t help you. And I damned sure can’t trust you.

Racism got us into this mess. Anti-racism is the only thing that will get us out of it. It’s been 400-years. Y’all can’t keep running from yourselves.

All white people are racist and the fact that you need a special out like a “Not All White People” label is disheartening because it says to me you are racist, but you’re in denial about it.

To me this kind of white person is most dangerous kind of white people I know and I just don’t have time to play games with you all anymore.
