white cishet men who use leftist spaces to gain social capital for romantic relationships with women of color are atrocious.

"I commonly run into the misconception that men from some national or ethnic groups behave much more abusively toward women than those in the mainstream of the United States and Canada. Social workers sometimes say to me, for example, “The family I am working with right now comes from one of those cultures where domestic violence is considered normal and acceptable.” The reality, however, is that cultural approval for partner abuse is disturbingly high in our society, even among the privileged and educated, and our domestic violence statistics, while not the worst in the world, are on the high end. The United States is the only industrialized nation that has failed to ratify the UN convention on eliminating discrimination against women, which specifically refers to violence against women as a form of discrimination. Pointing fingers at other countries can be a way to ignore the serious problems in our own."

Small Towns, Black Lives by Wendel White 

i did not want to wake up alone the day after my 31st birthday. i wanted to be married. i wanted to be loved, if not married. i hate being alone. i don’t want to make a life of being alone. i don’t want a life where i wake up alone. i don’t want my child to be some kind of life raft. i want to have a lover and be loved. i want to be married. to anyone. to someone. i want to be sealed and bonded and taken and to stay that way. i don’t want to wake up alone. i want someone to care in the morning that i am happy. i want someone that i can tell to go to the store. i want someone who cares about my health and wants me to be happy. there is absolutely no pleasure in my being alone. i’m not here for glorifying what is misery for me. i wish i was one of those people who prefers being alone and is fascinated with my own company, i tend to fall in love with people who are like this because that state is so completely alien to me. i hate waking up alone. i fucking hate waking up alone.

Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.

white people will be like 37 & still act like other people aren’t real
