Why are white liberals constantly belittling the cause of POC/Black people when it comes to racism as “media circus” and “not that big of a deal”?
Also this is about a real war, and that war is fucking racism in the american justice system.
Also saying I don’t care about foreign policy because I’m shit scared about being the target of another racist attack is like saying I don’t care about my foot falling off because I’m too worried about my eyes dropping out.
^^^ EXACTLY. White liberals and libertarians ALWAYS say this whenever people want to protest about the oppression of women, LGBTQ people, people of color, etc. They think that EVERYTHING is a distraction that isn’t narrowly focused on government spying or repression of civil liberties.
LET ME ASK YOU WHITEY: Why aren’t YOU protesting about the fact that a Black person is killed by a police officer or security guard EVERY 28 HOURS in the U.S.??!! Or the fact that domestic violence is the leading cause of injury for women in the U.S., and that approximately 3 American women are killed EVERY 24 HOURS by a spouse or a known intimate (over 1,000 every year)?
