I just want to address this whole issue of “PoC can be prejudice/racist too”. Of course they can, because PoC are human and humans are capable of ignorance, prejudice, and hate; but that is besides the point. The issue here is that there is a system of prejudices that exist and are embedded in most people (of all colours). This system is historical and carries a lot of weight. Now the big bullshit of this system is that it states that people with white skin are the “default” the “main” humans and everyone else is “other” which if we’re honest implies “subhumanism”. Anyone, and unfortunately almost everyone, can believe in this system whether it benefits them or not. Too be honest if the people who don’t benefit from it believe in its actually way more powerful. Skin colour is an arbitrary trait to create division.
Anyway, the point I’m trying to make here is that its obvious people can be dicks but what we need to focus on is dismantling a very damaging system that is ingrained in our way of thinkning and manifests on a social level. THAT is what we should be focusing on, working on, and talking about.
