My Response to White Supremacy

In Feminism + Motherhood by Gloria Roheim McRaeLeave a Comment

I’m releasing my truth on you, and a number of you won’t like it. Some of you will. That’s ok, it all comes with speaking your truth. White supremacy is real. It’s real because we designed it to be so, and if you know what to look for you too will see it everywhere. This maniacal behaviour and mentality, this greed, is the source of all the social, political and economic disasters we face today. There was once a time when I didn’t see it. I too denied it. My feminism didn’t allow me to admit that although I deal with sexism that I also enjoy white privileges. But at 30 years old, living the life that I do it’s been painfully obvious to me every single day for the last few years.

I’ve been talking about it on Facebook, in public conversations and with some of my own family to much resistance. The impact of white supremacy has Chinese members of my family ashamed of being Chinese, and has the awkwardness of our multi-racial family turn into the pit of fucked up racist jokes at the dinner table. The truth hurts, but denial hurts more. Because I yearn for love and peace and I admire courage above all, I speak about the biggest obstacle to equality of personhood and self love: White supremacy.

Let’s get this truth out from the shadows of shame and into the light to take care of. Dixon White’s viral video this week asks viewers to post this truth and take responsibility. I am beyond ready to do this. Let’s open this issue up and destroy it. Pass it on, share, comment, like if you agree with me, and post a video of your own…I’m talking to you my white brothers and sisters. Be courageous and take responsibility so we can start dealing with reality.

We started this, it’s up to us to end it. And then we can move beyond it #‎takeresponsibility‬ #‎DixinWhite‬‪ #‎whitesupremacy‬ ‪#‎newnarrative‬ ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬
