#DearWhitePeople showrunner @JaclynPMoore announced Wednesday she would be boycotting Netflix over Dave Chappelle’s transphobic new special.

She opened up to Variety’s @marcmalkin about why she’s taking a stand against the “dangerous” rhetoric. bit.ly/2YyhwUc
“I never loved Dave’s trans material before but this time it felt different,” Moore told Variety. “This is the first time I felt like, ‘Oh, people are laughing at this joke and they’re agreeing that it’s absurd to call me a woman.’” bit.ly/2YyhwUc
“The fact is that’s the exact rhetoric and language that is used against us,” Moore continued. “He talks about our feelings being hurt. My feelings are fine, but being thrown against a wall hurts or worrying at night if I can get home safe.” bit.ly/2YyhwUc

Dear Fellow White People,

I am a gay woman of Jewish ethnicity living in #Texas and have faced discrimination in my life. However, my experiences are through the lens of a white woman, someone who doesn’t face the daily #SystemicRacism embedded in our society and institutions.
Let’s be clear. The USA was built on the backs of slaves, human beings who were considered property for no other reason than the color of their skin, and the institutions within this country were both developed and implemented by, and for, white people.
By virtue of this fact, white people have the inherent privilege of living in a world that was created for their benefit.

#DearWhitePeople: As a fellow white person, I offer a self-reflection exercise. 5 questions. Question 1: What's worse: property damage, assault, or murder? (The answer to this one is murder. There is no debate.)
Question 2: How did you react when you heard about George Floyd? Take a second and think about it, and answer honestly for yourself. What did you think? What did you feel?
Question 3: How have you reacted to the protests, including the escalations into looting and violence? Most importantly: which have you focused on most on this week--the murder or the protests?
