Quote 19 Aug 40 notes
When I speak of oppression, I’m talking about the systematic, institutionalized mistreatment of one group of people by another for whatever reason. The oppressors are purported to have an innate ability to access economic resources, information, respect, etc., while the oppressed are believed to have a corresponding negative innate ability. The flip side of oppression is internalized oppression. Members of the target group are emotionally, physically, and spiritually battered to the point that they begin to actually believe that their oppression is deserved, is their lot in life, is natural and right, and that it doesn’t even exist. The oppression begins to feel comfortable, familiar enough that when mean ol’ Massa lay down de whip, we got’s to pick up and whack ourselves and each other. Like a virus, it’s hard to beat racism, because by the time you come up with a cure it’s mutated to a “new cure-resistant” form. One shot just won’t get it. Racism must be attacked from many angles.

It… must be nice. 
Can’t say I’d ever want to live that kind of existence, but it must be nice to have the option.
