White people are so tired. They are tired of people of color and other white people pointing out racism everywhere, because clearly, racism is the equivalent of Tinkerbell: it’s only real if you believe in it very, very hard. And anyone who points out the racism inherent in the system is hurting white people’s feelings.

  • “I felt like they were threatening me”
  • “They should just get a job!”
  • “They shouldn’t have talked back”
