Well, white liberals been showing their asses since forever. These last 24 hours is simply a continuation of their unwillingness to recognize not everyone deserves civility and decency.
Despite the fact that thousands of people are taking to the streets to denounce Trump’s imminent presidency, there’s a cadre of white liberals who — as people (most of whom are Black, Latinx, Muslims and/or undocumented) mourn and grieve — are already calling for unity with the neo-facist regime.
What in the entire hell?
I’d hazard a guess these were the same white liberals that collectively donated over $12,000 to rebuild the firebombed GOP office in North Carolina.
This is the problem with the white liberal … they base their political values on their moral superiority. They are self righteous in their beliefs and are sanctimonious in their daily behavior and social outlook. They believe they are doing the most public good by appearing humble and thoughtful. By hearing all sides of the debate, even when some sides are actively and vigorously working to destroy the most vulnerable communities.
The white liberal walks away from these conversations with a gag-inducing air of believing they’ve engaged meaningfully, and that their worldview has been enriched by doing so.
The morally superior white liberal is a paternalistic mashup of fuckery. They shame and scoff at the most impacted and most vulnerable when we decide to shun those who are relentlessly killing us, unraveling our culture, and erasing our social contributions, among other violences.
The white liberal believes such actions to be counterproductive, while we — the most impacted — know without doubt that disengaging from those who cause us systemic harm is best for our survival.
The white liberals are showing they asses. They’ve already called for compassion for those who voted for Trump, and are asking us to understand their reasonings for doing so. They’re painting false caricatures of Trump voters as backwoods, non-educated hicks that are so desperate for financial steadiness, they’re willing to comply with the most volatile of -isms.
They’re upholding the outcome of this farcical election as an imprint of democracy; that the will of the people elected Trump. The white liberal fails to see that the will of white supremacist America is illegitimate and undeserving of the oppressed’s compassion or coddling.
The white liberal’s reliance on public decorum is actually their manifestation of protecting the white supremacist status quo. White supremacy relies on public politeness to thrive. That’s why well-heeled politicians and well-dressed corporatists present in the ways they do; to beguile the public into disbelieving the extent of their violence.
And white liberals are easily taken by this facade.
The white liberal is a weak-willed, spineless creature that hides behind “civility” to mask their cowardice.
Don’t trust them.
