Im a 20 year old girl. Pretty down to earth and funny. I am also opinionated so if that bothers you, i wouldn't follow. Big fan of BAP. Enjoy your stay and ask me questions if ya like.
sometimes i feel like many african americans monopolise black struggle. you dont have to be living in america to feel the repercussions of hundreds of years of systematic oppression. i dont live in the us but that doesn’t stop me from being called a nigger, doesn’t make me…
I’ve personally had to unfollow quite a few people on here because of things that they have said in regards to other black people, specifically because I felt like they’ve really trivialized the struggle of blacks that aren’t American. Like talking as if their struggle is the only struggle or trying to quantify it by saying they have it the worst. That’s what I don’t appreciate.
-nods- I just personally feel like black people who aren’t American can be disrespectful in regards to us. talk sh^^ about us but then come to america and benefit off of the black American struggle. That’s what I really don’t like. (And I’m not saying you are talking sh^^ or being disrespectful, because You aren’t.) But because I’m from the south, the hit can be extra hard at times. There are still slave houses and cotton fields here, so it’s this constant reminder always. So it’s very personal to me, and I think it’s fine to criticize, but a lot of the time it sounds disrespectful from a lot of black Americans perspective because if anyone knows about racism we def do.
It is offensive to trivialize people’s experiences just because they aren’t from here and its ignorant to assume because someone isn’t American they can’t experience racism. Or understand the struggle. That’s actually just stupid af.
