as a white person i apologize
As a black person, I say that you don’t need to apologize.
You should not be held accountable for what your ancestors did. They did bad things to people, but you didn’t. You also shouldn’t feel as though you aren’t allowed to have problems. Just because society leans toward favouring white people, doesn’t mean your life is perfect and stress free.
You don’t need to feel bad for being born the race you are. No one should
This managed to annoy me so much today I thought I’d publish it here so my lovely followers could see. This is an original VICE Colombia editorial which was later on published on VICE Portugal. I find it interesting that both the Colombian and Portuguese versions are entitled “Powerful Women” (“Mulheres Poderosas” in Portugal and “Las Capitanas” in Colombia).
The Portuguese version goes a bit further by subtitling it “Against Patriarchy”!!! I questioned VICE Portugal through Facebook about where this shows powerful women and whether this is what they feel powerful women are but no answer.
THIS is NOT ACCEPTABLE!!! We are not pieces of meat! Our power is not defined by how we look or how naked we are!!!
Maybe do an editorial on Hillary Clinton, Beyoncé, Laura Bates???
“As progress spreads from State to State, as justice is delivered in the courtroom, and as more of our fellow Americans are treated with dignity and respect — our Nation becomes not only more accepting, but more equal as well,” Obama stated. “I call upon the people of the United States to eliminate prejudice everywhere it exists, and to celebrate the great diversity of the American people.”
