“Oftentimes, white people think POC want relationships with them- and that is not always the case. Especially when the relationship is not based on authentic accountability, or when the person of color have to keep reassuring white fragility.”

“Shut down racist comments every time you hear them. Start creating family dramas. Ruin HOLIDAYS. It’s your families where these patterns continue, and it means life and death for black people in the world.”

“It’s exhausting to be a spokesperson for an entire race. Stop asking me, and find another way to educate yourself.”
