Tone Policing - “You’re not speaking nicely enough to white people! The only way to deconstruct racism and white supremacy is to be peaceful & nice and get them on your side, then they’ll listen! That’s the only way!”
Wrong. Racial oppression in the United States has always prevailed regardless of People of Color’s calm speaking tone and through peaceful protesting. It’s not us. The white people actually willing to fight racism have always demanded justice with us without their feelings being prioritized—PERIOD. If you aren’t willing to fight racism because people aren’t coddling you, you are the problem.
