Its not that I don’t like the term or disagree with the concept of poc (people of color). I see its usefulness and appreciate what it means when used in an appropriate context. I just think its incedibly disrespectful and reductive not to differentiate the varied marginalizations that exist within white supremacist culture by labeling each racist action a collective poc tragedy.

What happened to Trayvon Martin (his murder, countless smear campaigns, the insistence on labelling him a “thug” or “gangster” and the subsequent not guilty verdict) would not have happened in the same fashion, if at all to another racialized demographic. There is a very particular mainstream stigmatization against black male youth that is unlike any form of bigotry, which directly correlates to the history of black Americans in this country. To be quite frank, there are non-black (and even some black) immigrant communities are reguarly heralded as maximizing their opportunities and coded as “model minorities” to denigrate poc who are trapped in vicious cycles of poverty. This isn’t to degrade the racism that others face (because, obviously, tokenization in itself is a form of racism), but to shed light on how racism manifests and splinters into different consequences depending on the community it afflicts. Trayvon first grievance was daring to be black in a gated community, because black people aren’t favored in higher income neighborhoods, rather black youth like Trayvon are the reasons those gates are built up. To keep the “unfavorables” and the “dangerous” out.

When you say poc discrimination instead of antiblackness/antiarab racism/xenophobia/imperialism/etc, you contrive historical context and socioeconomical dynamics, homogenize the myriad of oppressions that exist in favor of an illustrious (non-existent) poc common factor. That’s what I don’t favor. The lack of nuance and analysis doesn’t help anyone.

I’m sick of people wrongly defining bisexuality. It’s not ‘attraction to both men and women’ it’s about being attracted to ‘bi’ things like bicycles, binoculars, bilinguals and binary coding smh

Sirius Black high-fiving Lily Evans every time she raises her hand in class.

Sirius asking James to high five her when he is too sick to come to class.

Remus Lupin doing it with a sigh and an immediate apology when neither Sirius or James is available.

Peter being overly enthusiastic about being asked to do it, and slapping Lily in the face by accident.
