Black femmes are Merrill and it's disgusting how people demonize the intersections black femmes face, but will jump out of their moving vehicle because the saw that HOT sign was on at the Krispy Kreme on the corner of Queer and Negro Nose.
My only gripe with white people and whitewashing is that I wish white people would just admit that they are racist when it comes to black people and PoC in media. I wish they would admit that seeing black and brown faces in media and not behind the scenes makes them uncomfortable. They need to own up to the fact that they are harboring internalized racism from generations past and do better.
They can see "fake" racism, which is tied to actual racism, but they won't see real racism, unless it's reverse racism because white feelings will always, always, ALWAYS trump the very real lives of black people.
