i’m pretty annoyed that i’m considered automatically racist because i’m white especially when i’m such an advocate for equality of all races. i’m aware there are racist white people, i know what white people have done, i’m aware that i have white privilege, so on behalf of all white people I apologize.
but i’m still annoyed that people don’t believe me.
The thing is you shouldn’t have to apologize. Why should you feel sorry that white privilege exists when you are an advocate against it? Why should you feel sorry for a historical event you weren’t involved in? Should a black person apologize because there are other racist blacks that treat white people like shit? No, they shouldn’t. And neither should you.
By characterizing white people in general as ‘racist’ they themselves are, by definition, a racist.
Don’t ever let someone make you feel like you should apologize on behalf of your race. It may describe you, but it doesn’t define you.
