We can’t selectively numb emotion. Numb the dark and you numb the light.

We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.

This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

But how many people reblogged this because John Stewart said it? A white dude says the same shit we have been FOREVER and now it’s all over and he’s being praised for telling it.

Protip: Black folks have been saying this forever, this is nothing new.

But we’re just angry and complaining and ignored. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad he said this but I’m tired of us saying this all the fucking time and getting dismissed.

But when a white person parrots the same shit we’ve been saying? It’s suddenly relevant.

Thank you! That very last thing he said has been floating around Twitter and Tumblr while he was on vacation and I’m sure a black woman said it. It’s almost word for word.

The bold is a PSA.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson
