Are whites’ race issues really less pressing?
The activist inside me wants to answer, “Yes! Who cares about white males? They’ve got enough privilege already. Why should they get dedicated political space when the whole world already revolves around them?”
But that’s not a very tolerant attitude, is it?
No one can achieve lasting empowerment by dismissing others. That sort of approach only fuels future conflicts.
We shouldn’t scorn anyone’s voice based on ethnicity – or any other reason. Unfortunately history and contemporary society are full of such examples (http://titsandsass.com/miserable-politics-why-anne-hathaway-should-go-away/), but having your forefather’s voice silenced does not justify silencing others.
Time to stop the cycle, Taylor Swift style.
Yebo. You read that right. Taylor Swift style.
