Sometimes I feel shame for existing in white spaces. I've had POC make comments about how my community (Raising Children Unfundamentalist on FB) is mostly white, and it is, but somehow I feel I'm to blame for this. I don't make enough space for POC, or because I've simply assimilated too much. It kinda sucks that I've been colonized as a missionary convert, had to assimilate to survive/gain a platform, and then feel shamed for it.
I find a lot of camaraderie with the #Exvangelical community #onhere, led by @C_Stroop and @brchastain & many others, but it is mostly white. I share this sociocultural heritage with all these white ppl because white missionaries CONVERTED ME AS A CHILD
I'm used to not fitting in anywhere, so I don't struggle with feeling lonely or anything like that. But I need people to realize I am a victim of colonization, both cultural and spiritual. I'm not to blame. #SpeakMyTruth
I suppose I should assert my “ethnic” heritage more #onhere. Here, how about a picture of my lunch yesterday:
That's not all for me btw, that was for my family. It's a traditional Taiwanese eat, glutinous rice bowl with pork, egg, and mushrooms. It's one of my favorite lunches. It's not "ethnic," it's just food for me.
