Reasons why PoC don’t talk and hang out with white people:
- Because they’re tired of various microagressions.
- Because they fear they are being fetishized
- Because they are tired of racism
- Because they are tired of having to explain every aspect of racism to an ignorant…
is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.
He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.
