Because we're tired of the bullshit, and needed a space just for us.

And even a bonus slide for any remaining queries:

Mod note: 

Feel free to erase this bit here if you reblog, but I just wanted to explain why I made this. Very recently I got into an argument online with a white woman about a film that executed a white savior trope. I explained all the things I found problematic in the film and why I thought it was racist, and she told me that I was both nit-picking and white-shaming. I was also called a hypocrite and a racist (against white people).

I could see that this white woman was set in her willful ignorance, and that any further arguing would only make me more frustrated and her more self-righteous. So instead, I made this (lovely, if I can so myself) powerpoint rather than metaphorically bashing my head against a brick wall in continuing a conversation with her. 

May this help you in all your efforts, even if it couldn’t help me in mine. 

- Jennifer 

P.S. So I don’t know if someone has made a powerpoint for racism before (I’m sure someone has), but I haven’t seen one. Please link it to us if you have!
