White liberals and centrists give platforms to white supremacists because they have one common goal – white supremacy.
Dear Liberal White Folks,
I remember when you started pinning little safety pins to your clothes – you said they were to show that you were nice white allies and the protection brigade for marginalized people of color, whereas I thought
you were wearing them as badges which said "I didn't vote for him, I'm one of the nice ones." – those were simpler times.
Well, we're 136 days deep into this new presidency and shit is going about as well
as we thought it would. So many of you have been surprised that white supremacists and Nazis exist
and that they're not just online trolls but actual people who go to work and breathe. Not only do they breathe, but they also kill people
and if they're not killing people, they're our politicians
who are simply enacting policies
the most marginalized of us.
However, I don't trust either of you. Why? I don't trust Nazis (duh), and I don't trust white liberals all that much either because your whiteness binds you to each other and you're constantly defending whiteness and upholding white supremacy even when it seems like the worst idea.
