first off, I am white, so you don’t need to put white in quotations.
This goes back to the conversations surrounding whether or not non-white people can be racist towards white people, which I don’t believe to be possible. when I am described as white, it is a descriptor and a recognition of the power and privilege I have on an individual, institutional, and structural level.
This cannot and should not be compared to white men saying “you’re pretty for a Black woman.” That statement sheds light on a system that has deemed Black as being inferior, ugly, less than, and further perpetuates that oppression.
when someone says I am a fine white boy, that shit does not hurt my social standing at all and does not marginalize me. If anything, it increases my social standing..
