I see the acronym POC online and my soul wells up, brims over with this sense of pride and unity and then I get off the computer and go to school or into the city and I’m slapped in the face with the reality of how many non-black people of color are anti-black.
like, I love cats and all… and i love people who love cats and all but i mean damn.
tumblr is a safer space for cats than it is people of color.
a photo of an itty bitty kitten has about a 1% chance of negative feedback on this site, or seeing its (nonexistent) culture appropriated or some other species-related discriminatory bullshit perpetuated. And so that’s why sometimes I’m like… “aaw, kitty!” and other times I don’t like or reblog a cat post because I remember “fucking cat, gets treated like a human more than I do.”
that’s just the internet I guess, where a cat has more privilege than i do. CAT PRIVILEGE, TUMBLR, THIS IS YOUR DOING.
