Anonymous said: how can you be friends with white people if you hate them so much?
Because like every other oppressed person we understand the basic fact we hate white people as a system of oppression. As in the eurocentric beauty standards, the white washing of our history and the media, the racial stereotypes and discrimination. This does not mean we hate them on an individual level. Meaning that if i see a white person walking down the street i’m not going to go up and call them a cracker for no reason. It is compteley possible obviously to make friends who still benefit from that system of oppression. The same thing how queer people can be friends with straight people. It’s not about an invdiviual but a system.
