initially, i wasn’t going to reblog this—why dignify it with a response?—however, i’m sure there are many other white people viewing this page and reacting the same way. thus:
certainly white people experience microaggressions, but that is 100% beside the point. i experienced microaggressions at MHC as a queer woman, as a jewish woman, as a femme woman. yet none of these instances came anywhere close to the level of hostility that students of color are describing. moho friends of mine—white folks included—experienced microaggressions around class and ability. these are all valid concerns, but mohonest is not the place to discuss them from a white perspective.
mohonest’s description speaks to racism on campus. it appears to be a forum created by students of color for students of color to address this racism. therefore, white folks, it’s not for us. let us engage through reading/watching what’s posted, but not try to take over this space or expect our voices to be centered. it’s not all about us.
