Guilt is only a useful emotion if it inspires you into action. Otherwise, it turns into pointless self-flagellation and whiny fake-martyrdom. I’ll try to illustrate using a non-racial example.
So in this situation
1) You’re white
2) You feel guilty for….???????
3) You must claim to be the devil for being white. You no longer feel guilty.
Y’all are ridiculous.
Oh so it’s “??????” ? You would just have no idea what that is huh? The imbalance in the world’s wealth and resources just makes perfect sense does it? Is the present completely divorced from the past? There’s absolutely no white supremacy left in the world for you is there?
Can I live in that world? It seems like I’ve been missing out if people are living in worlds where white people just have nothing to apologize for. Can I live in a world where white supremacy never existed too? Or is that only for white people now that you guys seem to be in a “everyone is human and all of that is in the past” phase
Being an adult is realizing that $5,000 is a lot of money to owe and very little money to own.
A young woman has been legally forced to give birth by caesarean section after being denied an abortion in Ireland, in a case experts say exposes flaws in recent reform meant to allow limited terminations.
The woman, who is an immigrant and cannot be named for legal reasons, was refused an abortion even though at eight weeks she demanded a termination, claiming she was suicidal.
After she then threatened a hunger strike to protest the decision, local health authorities obtained a court order to deliver the baby prematurely – at around 25 weeks according to some reports – to ensure its safety. The infant has been placed in care.
I feel like any time someone says, “but my black friend says…” there’s a black person going “so, there’s this racist at my work…”
