OK, listen up. Here’ why we usually generalize “White People” when we discuss racism.

It’s actually very simple. 

 Yes, obviously it’s only a number of White People who actively engage in doing the fucked up shit that most people recognize as racism. 

But then there are the ones who just stand there and watch….

And then there are the ones who stand there and cheer….

And then there are the ones who shake their head and say “someone should do something about that!” and then walk away….

And then there are the ones who cave into peer pressure and join in….

And then there are the ones pay lip service…but are still just standing there. 

And then there are the ones who get mad at you for being hurt….

And there are the ones who laugh at you for expressing your pain….

And the ones who blame you for being hurt in the first place….

And then there are the ones who punish you for trying to stop it….

At the end of the day, so many of you have become so complacent that we hold you just as accountable as the one primarily causing the harm, and rightfully so. 

If you’re a beneficiary, you’re a perpetrator, especially if you do nothing to change.

Whether you want to admit it or not.

What's up? My name is Perryn, 22 years old. I am Black, Gay, Extremely Relaxed Catholic. I am exceptionally Black and Exquisitely Gay. This is space is mainly dedicated to the most random ass things that fly through my head at any moment, but every once in a while (meaning, on the regular) social justice, racism, homophobia, and all the hardcore stupid -isms and sexy buff men pop up.

The tone can change at any moment, so be prepared. I could be talking about deco-den and crafting or I could be talking about racism, homophobia and privilege.

There is a very good chance that my blog will give you your daily recommended dose of akward and/or uncomfortable.

But enough about me. How was your day sexy?
