If you’re white & your family raised you in a racist environment and you’ve subsequently had to unlearn a lot of toxic shit, that’s the kind of thing you talk to your therapist about, NOT your POC friends

I’ve said it before but it’s not our job to watch you self-flagellate, and it’s certainly not our job to offer you some kind of absolution.

@moviemorgz although, to be fair, I try to warn my BIPOC friends that I grew up in a racist redneck all white area, that I'm still working through that at age 60, and please call me on my shit if I do or say something. But yeah, I don't lean on them for help with it, they have their own shit to deal with, and the therapist is paid to put up with mine.
