@KassandraSeven @KyaeGunn Boy, DO I?!

I have SEVERAL:

1) STAWP w/ the #NotAll & SJW resumes.
2) RESPECT OUR SPACES- if we're having an intracommunity discussion, just listen.
3) QUIT recentering EVERYTHING back to you. This is oftentimes uncomfortable & unconscious, but do try to break the habit

4) YOU DON'T HAVE TO APOLOGIZE for being white. It sounds disingenuous. Just work on recognizing racism& privilege & how to personally mitigate it.

5)DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH- we have enough to deal with, & are TIRED of giving free Racism 101 classes. GOGGLE is your friend.

6) RESPECT that we may have different priorities. Black people are NOT a monolith.
7) END the patronizing NOW- just as "mansplaining" is a thing, so's "wytesplaining"
8) ASK questions, but be prepared to give WHY you're asking. Trolls are about, ya know
@KassandraSeven @KyaeGunn 4/

9) LOOK for Black activists, experts, authors, researchers.
I PROMISE, THEY'RE OUT HERE, usually waiting to be involved.
10) RESPECT cultural differences, & END COLORBLIND stances- that erases our collective experiences & is NOT how we have to interact w/reality.
Fake too
@KassandraSeven @KyaeGunn 5/

11) WALK THE MF WALK- we value ACTION over WORDS. Link up w/local orgs/charities. Volunteer. Protest. BE AN ACTIVE ALLY.

12) LIGHTEN THE HELL UP. Sometimes, the most effective thing is LAUGHTER. We LOVE cracking on folks & each other.
Stress relief & all that.
@KassandraSeven @KyaeGunn Anyone is welcome to ask questions, if asked genuinely & respectfully.
You might not LIKE the answer, but isn't that better than not knowing?
Intersectionality is tricky, but essential.
Hope my points made some of you THINK.

Blessings, &
