professionalpeachhunk: [[This is Isaiah Hine’s high school presentation on white fragility. You’re not going to get a simpler explanation, in my opinion, so if you’re white you should really read this. Below are Isaiah’s notes on each slide.]] — What is White Fragility? Robin DiAngelo is a professor at Westfield State University and author of What Does it Mean to Be White? Developing White Racial Literacy. I’m sure you’ve all seen these ‘defensive moves’ in action before. “I didn’t mean anything by it” “I wasn’t trying to be offensive” “I have a black friend” “Not all white people” People are often more worried about being called a racist than actually doing something racist. In America white people often don’t even have to consider race. They often think of themselves as “raceless” white is conditioned to be the norm and everyone else is considered “raced” or “colored”. White fragility allows white people to govern when and how race is discussed. White people expect to be educated on racism, and in a nice way. — Why Is It A Bad Thing? White people never learn as a result and are allowed to continue saying and doing racist things. White people prefer to hear these things from other white people but because other white people don’t know enough about racism, they cycle continues. When people of color do things like the BLACKLIVESMATTER movement, many white peoples responses were “all lives matter” this is white fragility. Proclaiming that black lives matter does not inherently mean that other lives don’t. This statement is made because society continually shows us that black lives don’t matter in america and these are the lives that need the affirming. We already know that white lives matter, it doesn’t need to be stated. White people are very used to being the center of things and when they aren’t it makes them uncomfortable. — Why Does This Happen? Most people don’t fully grasp the idea of systemic racism and that we live in a racist society that perpetuates racist ideas. We are socialized into white supremacy. : professionalpeachhunk: [[This is Isaiah Hine’s high school presentation on white fragility.

dovewithscales: thatmadhatter: Okay, but THIS. My therapist only recently understood that when I said, “I don’t know how to make this phone call or make this appointment.” I very literally meant I didn’t know what to do. I can dial the phone, but what do I say EXACTLY? What questions are going to be asked? What do I need to have on hand? What if they ask me something I don’t know the answer to? I’m one of those people that needs very specific and detailed instructions if I’m doing something for the first time. Be patient with people. We all have our struggles. Sometimes it can make all the difference in the world knowing someone can spare a few minutes to care about you and walk you through something that’s hard for you. : dovewithscales: thatmadhatter: Okay, but THIS.

thecringeandwincefactory: I fucked up my knee real bad as a teenager doing something stupid and had to get a couple rounds of surgery to get it sorted out. I can’t do general anesthesia because it’ll send me into a depressive episode, so I get epidurals instead. The last surgery I got was when I was maybe 24. I did the epidural method for that one. From what I remember the anesthesiologist injected some fentanyl derivative directly into my spinal column, and - I basically just fucking spasmed out of pure joy on the gurney. I blurted aw, FUCK YEAH real loud because fentanyl direct to the brain is like Sex With God, and every person in the OR froze for a second, unsure of how to respond. My point is, this is completely realistic. : my feelings are hurt @john_from_hr Girl: Rearrange my guts daddy Surgeon: Why isn't she under anesthesia Anesthesiologists: She's under so much anesthesia thecringeandwincefactory: I fucked up my knee real bad as a teenager doing something stupid and had to get a couple rounds of surgery to get it sorted out.

Imagine going to a friend’s house and being greeted like this via /r/wholesomememes https://ift.tt/2VglmLF: My friend's dogs pick up a pillow every time someone enters the house. mehcoconut malibujojo: lumos5001 1nkblots spookymays #HUMAN YOU ARE HERE WOULD YOU LIKE A PILLOW That.. actualy seems like a realy smart idea? I bet you these dogs used to bark like crazy whenever someone approached the door. Training an animal to stop doing something is way harder than training an animai to start doing something most of the time. So. solution, train the dogs to start doing something like, say, picking up a pillow whenever someone approaches the door, and as a side effect, they don't bark at the person because (a) they're distracted searching for the pilliow and (D) its kind of hard to bark when you've got a pilow in your mouth that's seriously briliant My parents dog has a whole crate of stuffed toys, and he picks one for every visitor. The beagle toy is the defaut, but he will often dig through the box trying to find the right toy. He often brings me the crocodile which I bought for him, or a large frog He also has four pigs. and those are for special friends. Only family members are greeted with the biggest toy he nas, the Great Pig of Honour #have never loved dogs more than in this moment Imagine going to a friend’s house and being greeted like this via /r/wholesomememes https://ift.tt/2VglmLF
