Healing from Internalized Whiteness
Unfortunately this means most white people who are newly coming into racial justice work are still very unconscious of how unconscious they are about it.
This unconsciousness can make bringing white people into racial justice work extremely fraught.
They are often emotionally resistant to seeing how they’re expressing white supremacy – and get mad when it’s pointed out or beat themselves up for it.
Too often that can mean them giving up on the work, continuing to beat themselves up, or insisting their racist actions aren’t racist.
For those who want to keep trying often struggle with questions like:
Sorry, David; that isn’t a phobia.
The whole thing so-over-the-top “social justice” whining that I first thought it was a parody. But with social justice howler monkeys, it’d getting hard to tell. I did a little digging.
I think it’s real. But damn, that reads like parody. And check out their Twitter feed.
But if it’s real, and I attempt to take it seriously…
That is the ranting of a paranoid schizophrenic conspiracy freak.
At which point I did “internalize” something. “Social Justice Theory” isn’t a scam, an excuse for failure, and a rationalization for theft.
SJT is a schizophrenic’s conspiracy theory. Everything can be taken out of context and be “shown” to be a grand conspiracy against them. Everything is code for “racism”. Everyone is plotting against them, even if they don’t know. The “white male” world is out to get them.
