Anonymous asked: cite your sources

Sorry, I don’t have the time to cite every source. http://madamenoire.com/79228/8-examples-of-black-privilege/ is one site run by black women for black women concerning black privilege. I took their information to actually start my blog.

Anonymous asked: You know you're doing it wrong when you have white supremacist blogs reblogging you and agreeing with you. Quit before you hurt yourself.

I cannot help who agrees with me and how the bend my words to fit their needs. I will not doctor myself or change myself for others. Seriously? How do I do it right? Please educate me so I can.

bendoverbarbie asked: You also shouldn't be running a blog on an issue of social justice, if the only thing you're using to back up your arguments are opinions. Because if you'd bother to actually read and educate yourself, as opposed to just talking without knowing anything, you'd discover facts that contradict every fact you've posted. And your audacity to think you know anything about black people, the community, or the history, is revolting.

You obviously didn’t read a lot of my privileges. I back up the ones that I believe need to be backed up. A lot of the other ones are just ones that I’ve seen numerous times over the web &are obviously shared by a lot of people. I’ve taken many classes on black history, grew up in Alabama in an area dominated by blacks, my bestfriends and boyfriends were ALL black until I turned 18, my cousins are black, I listen to hiphop created mostly by blacks (not only listen, but I collect shirts, tapes, records), and I actually believed I was part black proof of my ethnicity surfaced when I turned 19.

Black privilege is being accepted into a program/institution/school/college/university over someone of a different ethnicity who has better grades and a more well-rounded resume than you, just because you are black and will contribute to the program/institution/school/college/university’s “diversity.”

bendoverbarbie asked: I see that you've managed to post all the asks that make you look like you're being victimized.

Honestly, I’m going through every single post starting at the first message I received a few days ago except for the ones I’m receiving currently. If it looks like I’m being victimized, than I am.

Anonymous asked: There are three main social "privileges" in North America. White privilege, male privilege, and heterosexual privilege. There is no such thing as "black privilege". There is no such thing as "female privilege". And there is no such thing as "homosexual privilege". Why? Because due to prejudice and discrimination, we have been engineered to believe that to be anything that is not a white, heterosexual, man is seen as less powerful, or less professional, or less worthy of success.

That is all true. As long as privileges are recognized, there will always be the few that overly pity the opposing rather than treating them like equals. If this is continued, the future could mean quite the opposite. Homosexual WoC could be the next privilege. I want to erase all privilege, but that’s not possible. I’m giving another point of view so maybe those who expect to be put ahead because of their race’s past can understand that they are not completely correct either.

Anonymous asked: To the haters: This blog is not stupid at all. All ethnicities, all groups of people have certain privileges and advantages based on superficial things about them. That's how life is. It is hypocritical to believe in white privilege but not in black privilege or privilege of any group/ethnicity. It only makes you look illogical and ignorant when you shoot down the point of this blog. Every group has certain privileges. Get over it.

Anonymous asked: You are so incredibly misinformed that I don't even know where to start correcting you. I don't think you'd listen if I tried. This blog is ridiculous. You should be ashamed.

This blog is for open-mindedness, and is not meant to put off anybody unless they are offended and attack me. If you want to talk, I will back up my view with nothing but facts, and I will not be afraid to say when I am wrong.

bendoverbarbie asked: You have no right to be running this blog, or any blog on race, if you know that PoC and WoC stand for people of color and women of color respectively, and inexplicably think that those terms only apply to black people, as several posts in your blog demonstrate. Every single post that you have put up, submitted or not, is one of many examples of why people who are racially uneducated, and are white or white passing, should have no say in an argument about race.

I understand PoC and WoC represent all people of color. Referring to black people as PoC is the socially acceptable thing to do these days. Different times dictate what is actually right and wrong to call them. When I first started this blog, I felt it was wrong to call black people “black.” I was conditioned to believe so my entire life. But, actually the guilt kind of cleared away after I realized I always called white people “white.” So, my earlier posts referring to blacks as PoC was me being polite. Obviously, this blog refers to black people specifically. I just thought the educated would understand. I will make it more simple for you in the future.
