[W]hite people must continually acknowledge, address, and work on deconstructing their racist perceptions, feelings, and behaviors. This includes those who feel that they don’t need to, who believe that they’re not racist, or who consider themselves allies to racialized people.

#any time i hear a white person say ‘i’m not racist’ #i get nervous #because that’s someone more invested in protecting their Not Racist identity #than in ferreting out and stopping the racist shit #that white privilege makes it ‘normal’ to perpetuate #at least that’s been the case in my experience so far…(via mymomoness)

I had shorts on underneath (for this very reason) but two guys in a parked car saw it happen and yelled at me to lift it more, I yelled back, “fuck you!” and they laughed. So I took my pocket knife out of my bag and said, “I will slash your fucking tires” and they did not laugh
